If you've been toying with the idea of starting a creative business of your own, or even better yet, you've decided that this 2016 is the year to.. Then it's time to kickstart your new year's resolution with an Etsy bootcamp! Etsy is not just a giant international online marketplace for vintage and handmade goods which we all know and love here at Bloesem (and we're sure everywhere else too), it's also home to a global community that supports creative entrepreneurs and helps your business succeed.. So we are super thrilled to share with our readers this amazing opportunity for all budding creatives and business owners out there!
The bootcamp, aptly called Etsy Resolution, is a free 4-week online program starting on the 25 January, designed specially for makers and creatives out there who are new to Etsy. You will be guided, step-by-step, through the process of setting up your own Etsy shop under the mentorship of the true pros, Jemima Callaghan from Lost Property Hong Kong and Vincci Ching from Angee W. As inspiring digital entrepreneurs who have succeeded in making their own creative business dreams come true on Etsy, they will be spearheading the programme and bringing you through all the little details. Plus, you'll be a part of a dedicated Etsy Resolution Facebook group where you'll be connected to your mentors and fellow participants as well!
With a successful debut last year in Australia which saw thousands(!) of creatives connecting with mentors and one another to learn how to turn their creative ideas into successful Etsy businesses, Etsy Resolution goes global this 2016, with Japan, UK, France, Canada, and many more countries participating. Being a part of a new entire generation of makers from all over the world sounds beyond exciting, doesn't it!
Head over to their page to get more information about the programme and register. Psst.. A special little treat just for our readers (and future creative business owners).. Sign up with this code (Bloesem2016Resolution) and get 20 free listings on your Etsy shop!
Like with Etsy, we hope to support the launch of your new businesses too, and as makers ourselves, we definitely believe in helping one another along the way. Wishing you guys all the best!
