Do you have more than one passion you’d like to turn into a successful Etsy shop? That’s exactly what our returning guest has done! Anna from Bare Sandals is back to share how her business has grown since her last visit to the show in 2013. A lot has changed for Anna since then: she’s significantly increased her sales and also opened up her second Etsy shop!
Bare Sandals is a handcrafted foot jewelry business, specifically tailored to brides planning their destination weddings. Anna is passionate about creating all types of jewelry. And that passion inspired her to open Heart of Wander, where she expands into the space of bracelets, earrings, and more.
On today’s show, Anna enlightens us with the experience and wisdom she’s gained running a successful Etsy shop. She talks about everything from registering your business with the IRS to how to create eye-catching photos.
Anna also provides actionable steps you can take to build consistency in your business, and how to create a shipping system that works for you. Anna’s vast knowledge about SEO and what it takes to have excellent customer service will inspire you. Don’t miss all of Anna’s tips and much more on episode 122 of the Etsy Conversations Podcast!
