    "Great Info, Fair Narration"
    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narration was the only place this audiobook disappointed; where was the audio editor when the narrator pronounced "Rodeo Drive" (in Beverly Hills) like a yee-haw-cowboy "Ro-dee-o" and not "Ro-day-o" as is correct; and "Greenwich Mean Time" was pronounced several times as "Green-witch". Mispronunciation was a little distracting.


    What did you learn from Etsy 101 that you would use in your daily life?

    Absolutely TOP NOTCH primer on all things Etsy.....I cannot believe the amount of info in this book, absolutely great, highly recommend if you are considering opening an Etsy store.

    "Good for newbies"

    This book was a bit slow for my tastes, and simplistic in its information provided at times.
    That said, it would be great for someone with little or no experience with a site like Etsy (or eBay and other online selling venues for example) and needs hand holding.
    There also was some useful information and ideas, and it was well thought out.

    I would recommend it, if you are setting up a serious Etsy store, it couldn't hurt to learn all you can before launching your biz, or possibly give you some new insights.

    "ton of info"

    I wish I had this book years ago when I opened my shop. It's everything a newbie needs. My only regret is I don't have the physical book for quick reference -- especially for the urls.

    "good overview"
    What did you love best about Etsy 101?

    I liked hearing the replies of the Etsy sellers being interviewed


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked hearing how the sellers evolved on Etsy- how they got better at selling on Etsy


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    The author gives several important tips- the tips he stresses most about he repeats- so I do not forget their importance. One in particular was "do not under price your items- even though you are just starting out [on Etsy]"


    Any additional comments?

    I built and offer psychic readings on my PsychicSpellCaster . com web site. I also have sold on E-Bay for five years. I was interested in Etsy because I saw they were cheaper to sell from, had a better clientele.....the author let me know good start up points and gave me a summery over what else Etsy offers (other than selling).

    "Informative"

    There some areas where a few too many conchs seemed to be flying around at the same time. All in all this was fairly informative.

    "I struggled to finish; can't follow along..."

    I struggled to finish as it required detailed recall. Without the written word, it is hard to keep track. I will give Audible a little more time to determine if it works for me or not. I wish Audible had the visual of the book so one could follow along. And a notes feature would be great, too!

    "For the Absolute Beginner"
    Any additional comments?

    Good information for someone just starting out. I was hoping to find more insight since I have been on ETSY for a few years, but sales are lack luster.
