    This class was EXTREMELY helpful. Rebecca is a great teacher. She knows her subject, yet made it relatable to me, a newbie.

    I was so happy with the tips and advice that I am going to do the class critique again in a few months to see if she feels I have improved and maybe tweak my site some more.

    I highly recommend this class!

    i am retiring from full-time work in several months and wanted to get a real perspective on what is involved with Etsy, outside of doing the crafting. Believe me, there is much more on the business end than one would think.

    I truly enjoyed this class! It was something very different for me because I don't typically take classes that are not in a university setting. However, I loved it! The instructor was really informative, personal, and just full of information. She made the atmosphere very comfortable, and although she had a lot of information to share, she was able to make us laugh, and answered all of our questions. She even stayed an extra half hour to answer any questions. I will DEFINITELY take more of her classes.

    The class was small which was great, we didn't have to fight over materials or supplies. Rebecca showed us different types of clay pieces and then broke down how to make them. The bulk of the class was spent creating our pieces and then left with the materials to finish the pieces as well as more clay to work with at home.

Rebecca has a wealth of knowledge and is honest about how to improve your shop. I would highly suggest taking her class if you are just starting out or even needing tips on how to improve your shop.

I was concerned that the class would be covering a lot of basic information that I already knew, but it wasn't like that at all. It was a lot of very in-depth information that I found extremely useful. Thanks!

    First, I will state that I do not yet have a shop on Etsy. This class gave me a jump start on the Etsy concept. I now have a "to-do" list in preparation for opening a shop. The handouts gave me much food for thought regarding how I want to present myself and what I can expect as a seller. The glossary will save me hours of guessing what some of the functionality of the site is: e.g., what's a treasury?? Certainly worth 20 bucks!

    Prior to taking this class, I was only familiar with Etsy as a shopper. I knew nothing about the business of setting up a shop. This class provided a good overview of the basics and terminology. The teacher gave her opinion on where to prioritize your time/efforts for the most sales impact (SEO + PRODUCT IMAGES). She also gave our class a code to get 40 free listings.

Second, the projector did not work properly and the room was too light for projecting. What was finally projector was a pink picture too small to be seen under the conditions of the projector and room lighting. Third, we were then expected to view the subject being discussed on the instructor's laptop computer-----all seven participants. Finally, the presentation really had no clear structure.

    I took this class because I'm looking to start a line of homemade cosmetics and zines that I want to sell through etsy. I was looking for pointers on what makes a successful listing, what shop policies are pretty standard on etsy and how to bring people to my shop. The instructor could have elaborated more on these points. She spent a lot of time talking about the features on etsy - teams, treasuries, profiles etc. which is great but that were already things I knew about etsy. This class would be helpful for someone who has never navigated etsy before as she talked about what each button means. She did talk about keywords and tagging which is helpful for having people find your items but it didn't seem like a sustainable way of creating a brand.
