One thought on “Branding and Social Media Help Seller Expand Beyond Etsy”

  1. “It means standing up for the reasons, and ideals, that made me start my business in the first place. Etsy might not uphold those anymore, but I do.”

    Berry says that a company must make a profit and do right by its shareholders. Fair enough. But that does not explain or excuse the way in which Etsy has abandoned almost all the principles which attracted many indie sellers there from Ebay in the first place. Perhaps that explains why many of these same indie sellers are re-opening abandoned shops back on Ebay.

    Ebay has many complex rules. But if you break them they will tell you quickly enough and explain exactly where you went wrong. Rules on Etsy are all too often vague and ill defined. One seller may have a shop filled with copywrite goods, faux vintage or handmade. They get left alone. Another had one item flagged by a spineless snitch and gets persecuted by the muppets in marketplace integrity.

    What can you say about a company which prates about your “selling privilages”. They are NOT privilages but SERVICES you have paid for. Etsy has grown fat on your $$$ and needs to show a little more recognition of the value of its paying customers.
