I hope you are enjoying some summer sunshine wherever you are!
My work tends to take a back seat when the schools close down for the summer break but my Etsy shop continues to tick over nicely.
I put the shop into vacation mode for the last couple of weeks of June and enjoyed a family holiday in the Vendee region of France. Since returning home on the 2nd of July sales have picked up nicely with 43 book prints sold and one particularly notable sale of 15 prints to a repeat buyer in San Francisco!
Where do you fit into the Etsy Economy?
Etsy recently published a 14 page report called Building an Etsy Economy: The New Face of Creative Entrepreneurship
The report is based on data from a 2014 survey of 4,000 US based Etsy sellers and is being shared with government to help inform policy makers about how best to support small scale commerce which is becoming an increasingly important part of the global economy.
You’ll find the report an interesting read because it describes what Etsy sellers are really like and also includes some inspiring case studies.

Want to jump aboard the Amazon gravy train but don’t have money to invest in inventory?
Everybody knows that Amazon represents a huge opportunity to make big profits but what if you don’t have the money to invest in inventory for resale?
What if you are uncomfortable with the risk of tying up your capital in products that may take months to sell – or may not sell at all?
What if the risk of having your Amazon account shut down for an accidental policy violation keeps you awake at night?
There is a way that you can profit from Amazon without any of these worries and Jim Cockrum has just launched a brand new course that teaches you how!
Proven Product Partnering is a completely new approach to profiting from Amazon and having had access to the course content I have no hesitation in recommending this great new course to my readers.
The training is delivered by top quality tutorial videos including case studies and as always with anything Jim Cockrum puts his name to it is backed by a water tight satisfaction guarantee.
This is an in depth business model which won’t be for everybody but if you are looking for a way to profit from Amazon while other people accept all of the risk and invest all the capital this is for you.

I will be launching my “Upcycle prints” very soon. Just wondering if I should add them to my store where I already have prints or open a new store? Also because the dictionary print pages are very flimsy to people complain about them?
Thanks for all your help

Thanks for your comment. Whether to add upcycled prints to your existing shop or open a new shop is an open question. Ideally you would test it both ways and see which gives you better results. However, for simplicity sake AND to maintain your focus, my personal opinion is that you should add the new prints to your existing shop (at least initially). Rather than creating (and then having to promote) two separate shops. You can simply create a separate category (“Prints On Antique Pages” or such) under a single shop umbrella.
As to the thinness of the pages, I have not heard of any complaints. Be sure in your listings to mention what size frame(s) fit the prints and mention how beautiful the prints look in a frame (with the disclaimer that frames are not included with purchase). This paints the picture in your customer’s head that these prints are meant to go into a frame and not be left just lying around, so the flimsiness factor actually becomes moot.
Thanks for the update.
However when viewing this page in Chrome there is no graphic to click on to find out about the Etsy Profit Machine ie “Click the graphic to find out more>” followed by empty space.
All the best
That’s odd, Lawrie – I use Chrome myself and it looks fine plus others have taken advantage of the discount so I’m guessing the issue may have been just a temporary blip.
