Sale Samurai’s kick-ass tutorials make it easy to get started

The one thing I immediately noticed when I logged in to Sale Samurai were all of the tutorials.

Every time I get into a new tool, I'm like, ugh, I have to learn all this stuff!

It's just sitting there in front of me and I have no idea what anything does or how it works.

But Sale Samurai has this great tutorial area. There's like a whole page. I love it. ⬇️

As soon as you come in, it tells you how to use each individual option.

So if you just wanted to use one thing in particular— like the competition tracker (which grabbed my immediate attention) — you can watch that video first and BOOM, you're ready!

Images, tags, and titles… O’my!

I asked Neil to tell us about one mistake he sees that he’d love to correct.

Care to guess what his answer was? ⬇️

Images. Tags. Titles.

We all shop with our eyes so pictures are wildly important. You need more than one... and they can NOT suck! People need to be able to see themselves enjoying your product.

Tags. Fill them ALL out and don't make them generic (because that is what everyone else is doing and you want to stand out).

I don't know ANYONE who goes to Etsy and says, "well, today I want a gift", and then type in "gift" and hit enter.

🤣 That definitely is NOT how it works!!

Titles. THINK long-tail keywords. Especially for your tags and titles!These kinds of tags get searched and lead to MORE SALES.

*Affiliate Disclosure + Deets

Yup, this article has affiliate links in it. If you click those links, I get a small commission, but it doesn't cost you anything extra. Affiliate links help me keep my content FREE for you to read. (It costs $700 a month just for this blog to exist!)

Before you go screaming, "everyone on the internet is just here to SELL me something! Screw you people, I can't trust anyone!"

Let me just tell you the REAL TEA...🫖

You may have noticed from my rant about how much I HATE Shopify (here), that I don't just affiliate with anyone who's willing to pay me.

In fact, Shopify offered me MORE $$ than any other affiliate ever has. And I still wrote this article about exactly how much I don't like Shopify, complete with NO affiliate links.

So when I decided to learn more about the products on this page (like Minta and Biteable), it was because we were seeing MAJOR traffic and sales increases from videos, and these platforms cater to Etsy sellers like us.

I HATE that YouTube (and Insta...and Facebook...) have become a money grab for anyone with an affiliate link, and I bet you do too.

So I figured, hey...I'm gonna just treat you the way I want to be treated.

And when I use a tool I really like, that has serious life-changing abilities...Well, I'm gonna share that tool. Whether they affiliate with me or not.

On THAT note, I make an effort to share ALL the tools I like, even if they WON'T affiliate with me (Corjl, I'm looking at you – I'm also sending you some pretty obvious HINTS, Loom).

These articles showcase a tool that will help you out in a BIG way, but for whatever reason, they don't do affiliate relationships.

But it's a tool that could CHANGE the results you get online, so I share it anyway.
