Many people have started to use Etsy to sell their handmade and vintage toys as well as other crafts. Etsy is a very popular site that allows you to sell and auction handmade crafts, handmade jewelry, vintage crafts and more. You can find all the items you need to create the perfect craft market in Etsy, and it’s completely free! You can use a search engine like Google to look for crafts and then sort them out by category. Here are some tips on how to get started on Etsy.
When you’re ready to begin selling on Etsy, you will need to decide what your market is and what kind of craft market you want to concentrate on. If you’re just starting out, I recommend concentrating on selling one or two types of handmade crafts. That way, you know that you have a specialized customer in mind and can focus your marketing efforts on them. Some crafty people aren’t sold on the idea of e-commerce yet, but with a little bit of time, they’ll be shopping on Etsy. This will be truly advantageous for you as you build up your own online business.
One final note: don’t feel like you have to stick to only one type of craft. My advice is to go for as many Etsy wooden toys as possible. As people begin to realize how helpful they are to children, you’ll be able to use Etsy to sell even more crafts in the future. Take advantage of the opportunity to help others while making a little extra money in the meantime!
How to Get Your Etsy Wooden Toys Out on eBay
Selling and distributing your Etsy wooden toys on eBay is actually much easier than you think. There are many of us who have had a difficult time at one time or another trying to get our toys and merchandise out there in the same way as other sellers. We have gone from storefronts to auction sites, from having our own stores to selling on eBay, but with all these changes I wanted to show you how we are able to market and sell our Etsy toys without having to change our website.
If you do decide to go and set up an Etsy store just make sure that you have a separate account from your toys for Etsy. This way you can keep all of your toys for Etsy in one place and you will not have to worry about your toys being sold on eBay because they will all be under your watchful eye. When you first get your toys for Etsy from wholesale sources try to send them out in small batches. You want to be able to know right away if they are getting sold on eBay or if they are just sitting around in your warehouse or in boxes.
Once you have found a wholesaler and you are able to get your Etsy wooden toys out on eBay then it is simply a matter of setting up your own selling account and promoting them. You can advertise the item in several different ways such as through press releases, blog posts, forum posts, listing it on eBay, and finally setting up your own website. Once you have these things setup, you can go ahead and start selling your Etsy wooden toys on eBay.
