Jess, I have to tell you how much I have loved your podcast for the last couple of years! Thank you for all that you do and share for the maker community!
"Absolutely love Jess’s podcast, it is truly like having a great friend giving you business advice. Love it, keep it coming Jess!!!!!"
"This series is fabulous!!! I wish there were more."
“Hi Jess – thank you so much for these wonderful podcasts – I’ve listened to them all; twice!"
“Thanks again for another great podcast, I love tuning in each week.”
“Jess is down-to-Earth, very knowledgeable and experienced. She has a wealth of information to share and gives excellent information and advice in this podcast. Well worth a listen if you are a creative small business”
“Wow this was great to listen to! Thank you so much, I feel very inspired!”
"Jess makes a really great podcast. It has a more relaxed feel, like she’s just talking to you over a cup of coffee about the topic. She’s highly informative, doesn’t waste any time, and has a wonderful speaking voice that is really pleasant to listen to."
I see it over and over again in facebook groups – people posting, asking ‘should I put my etsy shop in holiday mode?’
They’re asking because they’ve heard horror stories – where people have put their shops in holiday mode, then re-opened to crickets. It drives me nuts to see so much misinformation and scare mongering, so I wanted to address this always-contentious topic.
Today, I’m going to share my own experience of putting my Etsy shop in holiday mode (for up to 3 months at a time!) many, many times over the last 10 years.
And, you guessed it – my business is still going strong!
That said – putting your Etsy shop in vacation mode DOES have an impact on your SEO (Etsy search rankings) – and I discuss exactly how and why this happens – as well as giving you concrete strategies to overcome the lag when you re-open.
Can you successfully transition from selling at markets and in shops to selling online… when you make one-of-a-kind designs?
This is a very special episode of the show – in which I take you inside my membership community – the Thriver Circle – and share one of our Business Intensives.
Think you'd be a great fit for the show?I’m always looking for new guests to interview on the podcast!
If you are a maker with a successful, profitable business, or, you have something to teach that will help handmade businesses, specifically, I’d love to hear from you.
