Step away from the craft fair. Set up shop on Etsy, the world market for art, design and home decor! For artists, crafters, designers, and vintage resellers, it's a revolution. Never before has it been so easy to open a storefront that will reach millions of paying customers - with no up-front investment - online, in an afternoon! Learn how thousands of Etsians, young and old, have launched their business on a shoestring, usually part-time at home. See how to sell items quickly, earn money, and have fun doing it. Discover the new twist on good old-fashioned word-of-mouth advertising made possible online, courtesy of Facebook, Google, and Etsy itself. You'll learn the best tools for making it all work, no computer geekery required. With tips to work smarter, you'll have more time to spend doing what you love: creating, finding new treasures, and belonging to a community of like-minded, independent artisans.

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.
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.
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.
