I’ve tried a few Etsy courses (and wasted a lot of money), and GYC Etsy Academy is without a doubt the best value, most useful one I’ve taken. The tips are straightforward and to the point. The biggest thing I’ve learned is how to differentiate my jewelry in a sea of mass produced stuff. Not only does this course gave me the confidence to stand out on Etsy, but to find my customers, say the right thing, and close the sale.

Many of my 8,000+ sales on Etsy is because of these strategies. Thank you for this incredibly useful course!
Meet your instructor: Growing Your Craft
Hey there!
Top 1% & 6-figure Etsy seller | Combined sales over 18,400+ | 4.8 star rating average with over 2,650+ reviews
Same as you, I started with 0 views, 0 sales and $0 in revenue. I didn't know anything about SEO, marketing, conversion rate, photography, social media and any other skills that are crucial to success on Etsy.

I didn't know how to sell but I had a dream and a drive to make it work on Etsy.

I wanted to stop trading time for money. I wanted to be my own boss. I wanted to make a living doing what I love.

Because of that, I didn't stop experimenting and testing all the ways to make my Etsy business work.

And one day...
After countless testing and experiments, I have built a repeatable and actionable framework that gives you a clear path to success.

I'm making a full-time income on Etsy from my shops. Transforming from ‘struggling to get sales’ to ‘thriving with a profitable Etsy business and a free lifestyle’.

This framework doesn’t just work for me. It has helped many other struggling Etsy sellers from different niches to grow their business.

So I know it can help you too.

I want to inspire you to live your dream. I want to share what I’ve learned over the years with you. And I want to help you reach the same level of success on Etsy.
I've developed a unique framework for getting traffic on Etsy and converting it to sales. I want to help you achieve the same success on Etsy.

For you, selling on Etsy doesn't have to be this difficult.

Your Questions Answered

I'm a new to Etsy. Will this still be useful for me?

Yes! Many of our students didn't have experience on Etsy when they first joined. The Etsy success roadmap will be perfect for you to build a strong Etsy business step-by-step. It covers all the topics you need to know including SEO, marketing, branding, pricing, and many more.

I have already made some sales. Will the information be too basic?

Not at all. The strategies you'll find in GYC Etsy Academy will be more advanced and specific than the Etsy Seller Handbook or other online content.

GYC Etsy Academy is aimed at makers of all abilities. If you've already made some sales, it gives you a good foundation to optimise, grow and scale your Etsy shop. And I can help you do that through the unique, comprehensive suite of resources including the Etsy success roadmap, core courses, step-by-step tutorials, direct feedback and more.

Couldn’t I just do this myself with all the free content online?

Well, you definitely could. And I think you should try and see if it works for you.

But the chances are, you’ve tried that before. And you have wasted hours, days, weeks going through endless free videos on Youtube.

With GYC Etsy Academy, you don’t have to sort through all the information on your own. It’s all the steps you need to start & grow, in the right order. You can focus on implementing the strategies that actually help you grow on Etsy

Were the courses written a long time ago, and are they up-to-date?

Etsy changes all the time. And so does GYC Etsy Academy.

All courses are constantly updated to make sure you have the best information available to get ahead of the competition. You will get notified when courses are updated.

What’s the time commitment for GYC Etsy Academy?

GYC Etsy Academy is self-paced and fits right into your life, whether it’s busy or you have more time to grow your shop. I recommend spending at least an hour everyday to implement the strategies.

What's the format of the courses?

Courses in GYC Etsy Academy are in text format with images to supplement the strategies. So you can read and learn on the go or at the comfort of your home.

How does the feedback from the Etsy expert work?

I want to help you succeed on Etsy. Once you join the Growth or Accelerated plan, you'll be able to ask me directly for feedback about your Etsy shop. And I'll give you my best tailored, actionable advice.

Due to the high volume of questions, there is a 3-question limit for each message. Message turnaround time is about 2-5 days at the moment.

How does the custom shop report work? How is it different than a $50 one from somewhere else?

After joining the Accelerated Plan, you'll get a simple questionnaire for me to understand your situation better. You'll receive your personalised report about 1 week after the questionnaire is finished.

Unlike other shop reviews, all the strategies are fully personalised to your unique situation. Instead of working from a template and mention every single aspect of your shop, I won’t pad your report with information that you don’t need. If your title keywords are already well-optimised, I won’t include a list of keywords that you don’t need, but to spotlight other areas that can make a real impact to your Etsy growth.

And as an Accelerated Plan member, you’ll have access to me for the next 12 months to ask any follow-up questions you have on your Etsy journey.

How does the listing makeover work?

Similar to the custom shop report, after joining the Accelerated Plan, you'll get a simple questionnaire for you to let me know which listings you'd like to transform the most. You'll get your listing makeover report about 1 week after the questionnaire is finished.

I'll give you actionable advice on how to improve your listing photos, choice of keywords in titles & tags, listing description, and even give you product suggestion to strengthen your unique selling preposition (USP).

How long will I have access and do you offer refunds?

You will have 12 months of unlimited access to all materials in GYC Etsy Academy from the day you join. All updates within the year are included. You can learn at your own pace and take as little or as much time as you need.

Due to the nature of digital products, unfortunately refunds will not be provided. Please read through this sales page carefully to get an idea of the content you'll receive in GYC Etsy Academy, and feel free to reach out to me if you have any additional questions at growingyourcraft [at] gmail [dot] com

This is one of the best courses I have ever purchased! The 6-figure Etsy roadmap is my go-to resource all the time. I also appreciate how much content you've added over the years, and also the range of templates available.
I like that your materials are specific and well structured. I used some advice that I found really helpful. There are a lot of useful materials to discover especially if you are new to Etsy selling.
The course is packed with high quality tutorials and info. It makes me feel confident knowing I have such a valuable resource as I establish and grow my shop. Thank you!
It's been VERY useful. It's an added bonus to know I can ask you a question and you actually answer back. You're doing a fantastic job. Thank you for the time and effort you've put into this course.
I’m so impressed with this learning platform, especially the passive income course. It taught me the skills I needed to take advantage of trends. Quick story of my shop: At the beginning of the pandemic, Zoom exploded. I knew the niche for Zoom background was a great opportunity and I knew I had to jump on it. I set up the shop in just 2 days thanks to the methods in the course. And boom! It worked and I couldn't be happier!

Although it has slowed down, the shop is at almost 1,000 sales. Not too bad for a quick 2 day project! I’m ready to spot the next big trend and start a big Etsy business again thanks to GYC. Thank you so much!
GYC is the first Etsy course I ever signed up for and I am grateful I did. I had almost given up on finding help at affordable cost then I came across GYC. It covered a lot of topics already ... I still have to implement all I learned but it has helped me a lot.
I can’t think of anything (missing on GYC Etsy Academy) as the information is already great and extensive!
The knowledge about SEO has helped me tremendously.
I've seen an increase in store visibility & sales.
