UPDATE: At the time this conversation was originally recorded, Tammy was selling her “Front Page Guide to Etsy” course for $25. Just prior to the episode going live, I found out that the price had been increased to $97. Unfortunately, she will no longer be honoring the price mentioned in our conversation. However, if you’re still interested in purchasing the course at the current price of $97, you can get a 25% discount if you use the code “convome”. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused and may cause anyone who attempts to purchase the course.
One of the major pain points for many Etsy sellers is figuring out an online – and offline – marketing approach that fits their needs, their niche, and their budget. So, this week, I’ve invited fellow crafter and founder of Cannon Online Marketing, Tammy Cannon, to join me on the show to share her insight on what Etsy sellers can do to market and promote their products to get ranked on the first page of Etsy’s search results.
Yes… you read that correctly!
Tammy has over 20 years of experience in the marketing and promotions industry – as well as the crafting niche. Her company, Cannon Online Marketing, is dedicated to teaching and helping creative entrepreneurs get the most out of their online marketing efforts.
She is a regular contributor to the Social Media Examiner blog and has been featured numerous times by The Huffington Post. Additionally, Tammy has contributed to Weebly’s Inspiration column so you can rest assured that she has a good idea about marketing and social media.
Tammy has taught hundreds of creative entrepreneurs and Etsy business owners how to maximize their online marketing strategy to increase their gross income and take their businesses to the next level.
Its important that business owners learn how to do social media marketing themselves so they can hire someone, maybe in-house, to do it for them.” – Tammy Cannon
