Etsy®can be a great place for makers to get started. Once you have established a product line and begun to secure consistent sales, however, it may be time to grow your business elsewhere. If you think this time has come for you, join Megan Auman for Beyond Etsy.
If you are ready to develop an independent brand, manage your own sales, and build ongoing customer relationships, it’s time to make the leap to your own domain and branded platform.
In this class, you’ll learn:
How to know when the time is right
Criteria for choosing the right platform
Creative customer retention that doesn’t violate Etsy’s rules
Techniques for traffic redirection and new customer acquisition
Megan will offer tips on managing both your Etsy shop and new online shop while you are in transition. She’ll also help you decide when to officially close your Etsy shop entirely, if at all.

Absolutely loved this timeless course. Even though it looks like it was produced in 2016, the information is just as current and relevant today as it was back them. Megan is a great instructor ... easy to listen to; cuts straight to the important points; and breaks down the processes into bite size tasks so they don’t seem so overwhelming. Thank you Megan for motivating me to do what I’ve been putting off for the last 4 months.
This is a great course! I am very glad that I attended; I now have hope for building an attractive website and take my business to a whole new level.
This class was awesome! Megan gives practical advice in easy-to-understand language. I feel like I'm more prepared than ever to take my store/business in another direction. LOVED it.
