766 Etsy shop owners responded to our survey, here are the results.

This Etsy statistics infographic is free to share and re-post anywhere as long as it remains in tact.

Survey was conducted in March 2015.

etsy-stats-statistics

Additional question asked in the survey: What one word would you use to describe Etsy’s new policies regarding mass-produced products?

Repeated responses included: unfair, disappointed, ebay, betrayed, frustrated, unsure, sellout, disgusted, unforgivable, devalued, cheated, indifferent, and annoyed.

PRESS RELEASE

Rich Mom® Releases New Etsy Seller Poll

Etsy sellers are increasingly complaining of dropped traffic to their Etsy shops and making either fewer sales or none at all according to a new poll published by Rich Mom®.

As a result, many Etsy sellers are leaving Etsy to sell products on their own websites. These sentiments are further expressed through polls and interviews published by Rich Mom® amongst Etsy shop owners. When asked if Etsy’s recent policy changes affected views or sales negatively, 41% said yes, 41% were not sure, and 17% said no. Of the Etsy sellers surveyed, 76% stated that they did not support Etsy’s new policies and when asked to describe in one word how shop owners felt about Etsy, repeated responses included: unfair, disappointed, betrayed, frustrated, unsure, sellout, disgusted, unforgivable, devalued, cheated, indifferent, and annoyed.

In a recent interview with Alane Clark, Alane described how she sold a crocheted football baby hat as her first product on Etsy, but quickly learned about the fierce competition she was up against. She stated that the new mass manufacturing policies have forced her to start her own website.

“A lot of potential customers on Etsy ‘favorite’ my items, but rarely come back to buy.” Alane said in an interview.

Thus, Alane decided to become independent of Etsy and just recently launched AlaneMarie.com.

“I can more easily tell my story there without the distractions from so many other shops.” Alane said.

Leilani Howard also decided to move her business, Rolani’s Wonderland, away from Etsy’scrowded hallways. As a mother of five, Leilani admits her number one struggle is balancing between work and family.

Leilani didn’t have time to worry about the overwhelming saturation of Chinese manufacturers on Etsy, so she ventured out on her own and created RolanisWonderland.com. Her site launched just a few weeks ago.

“I hold a lot of respect for artists featured on Etsy. Nevertheless, opening a new tailored website for my business was inevitable in order for Rolani’s Wonderland to grow.”

Even more recently, Aubrey Hill from Blossoms and Billows stated that she was creating her own website as well, which will launch later this year.

Aubrey’s first business transaction was selling a set of Christmas cards to her grandmother. Now she believes she also must move away from Etsy in order to flourish.

“My journey so far has been one of hope, sacrifice and extreme passion,” Hill said in an interview. “I cannot wait to see how my interpretations of the world continue to take me to places I’ve never dreamed!”

Alane, Leilani, and Aubrey are not the only ones venturing off to build their business, though. The same Rich Mom® poll indicated that more than 60% of Etsy shop owners plan on starting their own website within the next 12 months.

Interview with Alane Marie of AlaneMarie.com

  1. Are you happy you decided to move away from Etsy?

I am so happy that I decided to move away from Etsy! Best decision, ever!

 

  1. Why did you decide to move away from Etsy?

While Etsy gave me the opportunity to showcase my creations, it is such a large space with so much competition, that it is easy to lose potential sales. People get distracted by all of the choices there and while some are sure they will remember where they saw that cute hat or photo prop, the truth is, it is very easy to get lost. People get distracted and veer away from my shop and never find their way back. A lot of potential customers “Favorite” my items during a search, but rarely come back to buy. It is natural for shoppers to check everything out when contemplating making a purchase but navigating back to that first thing they found is daunting.

 

  1. What does your own site do for you that Etsy doesn’t?

My own site allows people to find ME and my creations. I can more easily brand my site and tell my story there without the distractions from so many other shops. I can add unique product codes to help people when they are searching for the things I make. Etsy has very little customization options. You are limited to what they allow you to do to help your shop stand out.

 

  1. Please write your journey from the idea of your business all the way up to this point in 4 sentences or less. (Do your best with this one. I just need a summary).

I began crocheting as a teenager but put my hook away to raise my kids. When the grandkids started coming, I picked up my hook and never put it down again. Soon I began making things for others and Alanemarie’s Creations was born.

 

  1. What were 3 major obstacles you had to overcome to get to this point?

Fear of Failure – will anyone buy my creations, Time to create, I work a full time job, and Location – how to get my own space and how will I be found there.

 

  1. What was the first product you sold and do you still sell it?

My Football Cocoon and Hat was the first item I really sold and it is still a best seller today.

 

Interview with Leilani Howard of RolanisWonderland.com

1.) Are you happy you decided to move away from etsy?

I’m excited for the change. I think Etsy is a great platform for those who are just starting out and new to owning their own online business. I think eventually it’s important to embrace growth and expansion outside of Etsy as an online business owner. I look at my decision to move away from Etsy as a milestone in the life of my business.

2.) Why did you decide to move away from Etsy?

Don’t get me wrong, but I’ve always enjoyed being apart of the handmade community. I hold a huge respect for many of the artists featured on Etsy. Nevertheless, I often found myself feeling limited, restricted, and frustrated with some of the ever changing features or lack there of. Opening a new tailored website for my business was inevitable in order for Rolani’s Wonderland to grow.

3.) What does your new site do for you that Etsy doesn’t?

The new website is everything I wanted in a business site and more. Customers will now have a more tailored experience with more options to choose from when ordering their custom blankets. Rolani’s Wonderland will now be able to offer a wider range of store coupons, display more product photos, and feature a workshop and customer fan gallery.

Followers can now sign up for the newsletter to recieve exclusive VIP discounts, news of upcoming events, and behind the scenes seek peeks. Overall, the website will now provide a more unique, personalized, and in-depth look at what Rolani’s Wonderland is all about. The Ecommerce Elite website package that Renae Christine provides is exactly what I was wanting for my business.

4.) Write your journey in 4 sentences.

Rolani’s Wonderland was based upon the idea of cherishing time with family and friends hence the phrase “What’s YOUR Wonderland Moment?”. As a mother, cuddling up with my children is priceless. As a business owner I wanted to create a business that not only shared my story but shared an experience through carefully handcrafted blankets. Since the inception of Rolani’s Wonderland in 2012, I’ve received several testimonials from clients sharing their own wonderland moments, and thanking me for creating unique handmade gifts for their loved ones. To me, these shared experiences are what make Rolani’s Wonderland the heart-felt business it is today.

5.) What 3 major obstacles have you had to overcome to get to this point?

The three major obstacles for me are work life balance, patience, and determination. As a mother of five, work life balance has always been my #1 obstacle. Anyone who tells you that starting an online business as a mom is easy are out of their minds.

6.) What was the 1st product you sold and do you still sell it?

The 1st product crafted for a client was a custom fleece Green Bay Packers blanket. As a die hard Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers Fan, I definately still offer this option to customers. There is a possibility that Rolani’s Wonderland will eventually move away from the use of fleece fabrics and more towards minky, satins, and brocade fabrics.

 

Interview with Aubrey Hill of BlossomsandBillows.etsy.com

1.) Are you happy you are deciding to move away from etsy?

Yes! I am so excited to take my business to a whole new level!

2.) Why did you decide to move away from Etsy?

I am moving away from Etsy in order to move towards a unique experience for my customers. Although Etsy is an amazing jumping point, that I am so grateful for, I believe that Blossoms and Billows (B&B) deserves it’s own stage and through Etsy it was having to share!

3.) What will your new site do for you that Etsy doesn’t?

I want my customers to know that their money and time are appreciated. Through Etsy, my customers were only getting a product. Through my new website, my customers will feel more appreciated and thought about because of the personalized experience.

4.) Write your journey in 4 sentences.

I have always been a lover of making and B&B is my niche that I never knew I needed. Through B&B, I am able to not only express myself but to connect with myself in a new way, which in turn enables me to connect with people in a way I never knew was possible. My journey so far has been one of hope, sacrifice, and extreme passion. I cannot wait to see how my interpretations of the world continue to take me to places I’ve never dreamed of!

5.) What 3 major obstacles have you had to overcome to get to this point?

  1. Self-doubt — It is a continual fight to believe in myself, and I am happy to say that it gets easier with every step forward.
  2. Discipline — Running my own small business takes so much determination, and on the hard days, I have to dig deep.
  3. Being a Small Business Student – The creative side of it all has come very natural for me. However, the business side of it all…is, at the least, overwhelming. However! I am learning each and everyday how to grow, market, strategize, and so much more…

6.) What was the 1st product you sold and do you still sell it?

The first product I sold was Christmas cards to my grandmother. They were super sweet nativity scene cards, and she loved them. I made them custom for her and I no longer make many cards, so no, I do not sell them anymore.

Hi Etsy Besties. As you may or may not have heard, etsy has made some massive policy changes that will affect your etsy shop. Etsy now allows mass produced products to be listed which has caused an enormous amount of Chinese suppliers to list items at unprecedented cheap prices. Which, in turn, has or will affect your own sales on etsy. This is heart breaking news to a lot of you as you can’t keep up with mass produced manufacturers. I have received dozens of emails from you etsy besties with pretty much the same concerns and questions

Should you stay on etsy? or should you leave?

I actually have a solid answer for this that I shall reveal shortly… we’re just waiting for the intro

The answer is to keep both an etsy shop AND make your own site but without the work of keeping up both. Allow me to explain.

Even if you’re banking on Etsy for traffic and sales, you should ALWAYS have another website to send people to and you should ALWAYS have an email optin so that you can create what we call in the biz repeat customers. So if you get your initial sales on Etsy you should still forever more try to send them to your site through that email list.

Why?

Because if they are shopping on your site during their 2nd purchase instead of your etsy shop on etsy you won’t be dealing with all of the millions of other shops competing with you on Etsy. Get it? Your own site has no competition. But Etsy has LOTS of competition. This is good and bad for you. It’s good for your original sale because you can STEAL your competitors sales

What? I swear I’m not crazy don’t unsubscribe. But during your loyal fans second purchase, you could actually lose the sale if they are on etsy instead of your site because of previously mentioned competition.

Woah woah woah, don’t give me that frustrated face. Those lines aren’t becoming you know. I have an easy solution for you. Now you listen to me. If you build a very very simple wordpress site and add an etsy plugin right inside the wordpress site, then every time you add a product to etsy, it shows up on your website. So you only have to enter products once. In other words, when you maintain your etsy shop, you update and maintain your wordpress site automatically.

Hey, I still see the scaredness on your face. Don’t worry. I’m thinking of doing another step-by-step screencasted tutorial for you. I’m thinkin’ of showing you step by step how to create this new etsy wordpress site plus I’ll show you how to install all the plugins you need including the etsy plugin. Oh, I’ll also give you the graphics for the site for free. So you’ll have absolutely everything you need for your brand new gorgeous site with all of your gorgeous etsy products inside. And the tutorial will be so easy that even the most tech-scared bestie can do it. You just follow my lead on my computer screen k? No skipped steps.

Wait how do I get paid?

Ok, here’s the deal. If you really really want this tutorial, totally free, I kind of need to know you’ll use it. Tutorials of this magnitude take me about a month to create. So if you want this tutorial, you’re gunna have to vote for it. To vote simply go to richmombusiness.com/myvote and let me know that this is the next tutorial you want. Now, I have to get at least 200 votes to make this tutorial worth it And I’m not exactly as popular as marie forleo so make sure you share this video everywhere if you want this etsy wordpress tutorial, totally free.

Stay for outtakes?

Love you all

peace out yo!
