Sellers ALWAYS have some "magical" *THING* that makes their Etsy shop explode...
And it seems like most of them are just fluffy BS that do a whole lot of NOTHING. But once in a while, you get a DIAMOND in the rough.
Here's a HINT: If the seller giving advice uses the same tactic to increase their sales TWICE, it's probably a winner! Listen to see what Carrie did to increase her sales over and over ⬇️
This episode, Carrie shares a trick she learned that ACTUALLY got her great results. But there’s a catch…
You’ll have to listen to learn what it is.

What Carrie did to increase her sales - TWICE
Here’s the quick step by step version of what Carrie did…
- Create one new listing
- Renew one of your existing listings
- Tweak one listing
- Tweak your shop in some way
- Do 3 social media shares
Carrie did this for 15 days straight.
She says she got great results just before the holidays – which is suspicious, because don't we ALL get a boost during the holidays??
So what happened when she did when there were NO holidays in sight?
Listen and you’ll know.
Does it harm your shop?
When you listen to Etsy advice, you need to STOP and THINK.
Don't just blindly do what other sellers tell you to do.
Instead, take this very important thing into consideration: ↙️
Will the advice hurt your shop in any way?
If the advice might cause problems, or it breaks Etsy's rules, STEER CLEAR.
Here's a good way to tell if advice is "BAD" - does it involve a TON of work?? For example, do you have to be on the computer, doing something over and over again for a VERY long time??
(i.e. ADD 1000 listings, even if they're not good – or favorite everyone's shop and ask them to favorite yours ALL the time! ⬅️ These are USELESS tips that will RUIN your shop's conversion rate, which Etsy hates).
If the advice being given poses NO RISK to your shop, then it's worth a try!
In this episode I walk through the ways I FILTER Etsy advice...And I'll even share how I’d go about using Carrie's strategy if I were doing it myself.
Don’t miss it 😉

Wanna sell MORE on Etsy... like, YESTERDAY?
Most people just hop on google and search for "Etsy tricks" to make more sales.
But I have news for you – if YOU found that Etsy trick for free, then so did EVERY. ONE. ELSE.
Common advice is OVERUSED until it doesn't work anymore.
And ultimately, your shop is more unique than you think. It's not like your competitor's or anyone else's...Otherwise you'd be seeing identical results.
Here's a shocker: there's no MAGIC SECRET you're missing.
People who succeed on Etsy decided a long time ago that they were just gonna be STUBBORN, and keep trying until they succeed.
None of this "I'm giving myself three months to see if this works..."
That's a BS excuse...And it ENCOURAGES you to just walk away if the world doesn't hand you exactly what you asked for on a silver platter.
And the fact is, you WILL be disappointed if you just wait for "the universe" to "make it happen".
The universe doesn't hand people shit on a silver platter.
But YOU can make it happen for YOURSELF.
Is it time for you to BE STUBBORN and keep trying until you succeed?
If you're READY to get your PROFIT on, let us help you make it happen faster.
We do individual attention (cause your shop IS unique), Etsy courses, and tactics that are HIDDEN from the rest of the internet.
