Should You Open an Etsy Shop?

Online selling doesn’t require a degree. If you’re a creative person, then consider making products that you can sell on websites like Etsy. People buy everything from unique apparel and accessories, to artwork and other items. The Etsy community is supportive of artists and makers, and would much rather purchase unique items from creative people than mass-produced products. The best part is that you can explore your creativity as a side hustle, while you work a day job while growing your small business.

People wonder whether Etsy is worth it, compared to creating an Amazon store, or an ecommerce shop on a platform like Shopify. These are all viable options, and you just need to decide what’s best for you. Generally, Etsy is better suited for creative people who want to sell their own products. If you’re a reseller, then you might want to start with another option.
