That's right everyone! For the next six episodes I'm going to be trying my hand at opening an Etsy store my-damn-self. Setting up an online store is something I've been meaning to do for, honestly, at least three years, so thanks Etsy, for finally giving me a reason to get my act together and try it.
In this week's instalment of "Honor Eastly tries Etsy": I try to see how quickly I can set up an Etsy store, and you can try to beat my time and win stuff.
What will you win?
My very first Etsy item, the Feelings pack, packed full of feelings. You'll get three badges made for feelings, and three postcards to hang on your wall, or cry on and send to your mates.
How do you win all these feelings?
All you have to do is start your own store faster than me. To do that I suggest making sure you have the following on your before you begin:
- An internet connection
- Something you want to sell, and a picture of it to upload
- Your wallet
- Your passport or some other ID (not everyone will need to do this, but I had to rush around my room to find mine)
When you've got all that you just need to:
- Grab your computer
- Head to etsy.com/promotions (where you can use the code STARVINGARTIST to get your first 20 listings free)
- Set yourself a timer
- Open your own store!
- If you beat my time (or come close to it - look I'm not a hard ass) just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a screenshot of your time, and a link to your new store, with the subject line "I TOTALLY BEAT YOU!"
And that's it. Looking forward to seeing you crush my competition.
Love and entering into the world of online marketplaces,
PS. Look at how pretty my store is! You can check it out here (or by clicking on the photo below).
