Ready to see what Etsy news and Etsy trends were breakout stars in January 2021?

Grab a seat, pop some popcorn, and let's get to it! ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️


Common Patterns:

✅ SKY BLUE – we're seeing it everywhere this season! Make sure you offer some of your items in light blue for 2021.
✅ Home and living are on 🔥🔥🔥. People are living mindfully at home. The pandemic is fueling home makeovers like never before. Offer home decor pieces if you can!
✅ PLANTS, plants and plants...2021 is continuing the botanical trend that took off back in 2019. Natural colors, green hues, depictions of plants and ACTUAL plants are taking off already in 2021 🪴

Common Patterns:

✅ Customized items – there are TWO in the top 100 right now! If you can add a name to your Amazon items, customers will clearly go nuts for it.
✅ We're seeing home decor AGAIN...that's because home makeovers don't stop on Etsy! Keep it going with home items for your Amazon shop.
✅ Masks, craft, and personal makeover items continue to kill it on Amazon. (This trend is ⬆️ since fall 2020). People want to remake everything: their homes, their minds, and their look! Offer customers KITS or easy ways to upgrade whatever they want.

✅ A place to get advice, ask questions, and see what other sellers are doing that WORKS.

✅ Get help with things like suppliers, resources, and shipping. All you have to do is ask!

🚫 My Etsy coaches and I ARE NOT AVAILABLE in the free community, but we do have moderators who make sure info is CORRECT and helpful!

We *kick out* members who do not play by our rules (read: INCLUSIVE, kind, and helpful = 👍), so the free community will always be a safe, non-toxic place to chat with Etsy sellers 😊

OPEN CALL for Podcast Guests! Get exposure to 22k+ Etsy Sellers.

If you never guested on a podcast before, don’t worry! I made it super easy...

Just click this link to RECORD your Etsy story. You can record using your smartphone. We take entries as short as 60 seconds!

(We also take recordings as long as 10 minutes – although we will probably edit you down if you give us a long recording!)

I'll listen to your story and record my thoughts about your Etsy advice, experience, or any question you have. (And yes, I said QUESTION – singular! We don't have time to answer a zillion questions in one episode).

Then you'll go LIVE on the podcast. It usually takes about 3 months from the time you record until your episode is live.

On your episode, we'll feature your Etsy shop and any other links you want us to share (HINT: this is a great way to get exposure if you sell on Tribehire!)

Etsy Suggests This Creative Idea for 2021:

"Miss You" Shopping is gonna be BIG this year!

Corona has prevented travel, holiday visits, parties, weddings...And it's quickly becoming our new normal for 2021, too. 😑

Buyers are looking for NEW ways to communicate, stay in touch, and enjoy friends from afar.

Not sure if "Miss you" items are right for your shop?? This new category ERUPTED on Amazon and Etsy in 2020, growing to epic proportions in less than 2 months.

Translation: these items are in DEMAND, and customers BUY them REGULARLY (for multiple friends and family members! Can you say REPEAT sales??!?)

That means MORE profit for you.

You can turn just about ANYTHING into a Corona gift. See what's trending in this category on Etsy HERE.
