As many of you are aware, Pure NaKeD Soap is sold online through an Etsy Shop. An Etsy shop is independently owned and managed, but follows the rules and guidelines of Etsy. This is how Pure Naked Soap appears on Etsy:
Etsy is a wonderful platform for handmade and vintage sellers. There are many benefits to selling online through Etsy. Etsy provides the platform, which allows handcrafters and vintage collectors to reach their target audiences. Etsy also has a feedback system allowing customers to post a review of the products. For a less than 4 star review, the seller can respond to the review publicly – but they cannot alter the review. This provides customers with a better sense of product quality when purchasing through an Etsy shop compared to an independent site.
One of the other unique things about selling on Etsy is that shop owners can join teams of like minded shop owners to provide support and advice on marketing, products and more. To help support some of my fellow Etsy sellers I will be posting a monthly update featuring some unique items found on Etsy, with some background information on the Etsy shop owner. I will be looking for products created in the spirit of Pure Naked Soap, natural, renewable, environmentally friendly and unique.
If you sell on Etsy and have an item you would like featured in September, please post a link in the comments and a brief overview of some of your background information. What motivated you to create or collect? What makes your products special? What is your story? What are your business goals for the next year? What do you love most about selling on Etsy? What advice do you wish someone had shared with you when you first opened your Etsy shop?
