Do you fancy yourself a maker of awesome things but just don't really know how to sell your cool wares? For a long time now Etsy has helped many people with exactly the same problem, and many have gone on to have successful businesses. Some people, however, don't really know what they're doing (making-of-things-wise or business wise) and end ultimately end up on Regresty for us all to point and laugh at.
Don't fear becoming a laughing stock anymore because there is a FREE workshop on Sunday November 11th, put on by Siren Nation as part of it's 2012 Festival, that promises to get your Etsy shop up and running and ultimately make it a successful venture. The workshop will be led by Christine Claringbold, a graduate of Etsy's June 2012 Educator training, and she will discuss what you need to set up an Etsy shop, how to get started making your first sales, where to go when you need help, and the four keys to Etsy success. The workshop will be held at McMenamin's Kennedy School from 2PM-4PM. (Hit it up before you head to Content!)
