Finding your niche and really knowing your target market can be a stumbling block for many Etsy sellers… Not Julie Ingmire though.
Julie runs the Etsy shop Jam On Gifts where she makes and sells fan art for the band Phish. Julie wasn’t brand new to selling online and she shares about her experiences selling on eBay, then her own website and how her experience on Etsy stacks up against those.
Within her first year of selling on Etsy, she hit the 1,000-sales mark and in our conversation this week she shares exactly what made that possible… I love that Julie doesn’t hold anything back and it’s encouraging to know that such success is possible even for new entrants to the Etsy marketplace.
From finding your niche and honing on your target market, to getting permission to use trademarked and copyrighted materials in your products, we talk about these and many other experiences Julie has had in her online selling journey.
