If you are looking into pursuing your passion and opening up your very own small arts & craft business, then Etsy is the place to start. Etsy is the perfect platform for artists and art enthusiasts to start their very own arts & crafts business and sell their own hand-made art crafts. Starting out your Etsy business could prove to be difficult, so to help give you a clear idea on how to make your Etsy business stand out on Etsy.com, some experts and bestsellers on Etsy.com shares with us their closely guarded tips to success.

1. Be A Standout

There are currently over 400,000 of active sellers on the marketplace at Etsy.com. With so many different arts and crafts to choose from, it is extremely important for you to be a standout and garner their attentions of prospective buyers browsing the website.

You need to find something to offer that will make you unique. Now let's face it, it is difficult to come up with something new and creative that works. But what you can do is use your existing skills and find a way to make it unique so it appeals and stand out over the rest. So maybe you sell your paintings. But think of what you can add to your paintings to make it unique and appealing.

You should also perhaps target a specific niche, and don’t try to cater to and sell to everyone. If you narrow down your niche, you might probably hit a gold mine.

2. Attract With Your Descriptions And Photographs

Art is something subjective. When your prospective buyers visit your Etsy product page, you will have to pull their attention with the photographs of your crafts and the description of it. When it comes to the photographs of your products, you will have to make sure that they are shot with professional quality. If you do not have your own high-end camera, head over to a studio to do it. Beautiful photographs of your crafts could really attract buyers. You should also make sure that you make the description as clear and in detailed as possible.

3. Effective Listing

Pay attention to the title of your listing, and make sure that you key in only relevant search tags. Keyword research could really help increase your search presence.
