Episode 159: Why You Should Not Rely Solely on Etsy to Sell Your Goods Part 2

If you have followed me for a hot minute, you know I am a firm believer of never putting all your eggs in one basket. When you use someone else’s platform to sell your goods, you have to follow their rules and their guidelines. And when they make changes to those rules, you have NO option but to follow along—even if those changes make a negative impact on your business that you have worked so hard to build!  Let’s dive into what has happened on Etsy lately and what I think you should do about it!
