Etsy: infographic

I’ve gone through available compete data and etsy weather reports to summarise some of the key points you need to know about etsy. I have also collated stats on competitors identified by etsybitch so you can get a feel for the landscape for these types of ecommerce options.

There are anomalies – there is no data for some months in the compete records for competitors and the weather reports published by etsy appear to be missing a couple of months, but this is a good aggregation of points.

Still, aggregation or not, there is no substitute for doing your own research – this infographic is intended as an brief overview, the onus is on you as the SMB to evaluate whether the terms, condition, facilities and opportunities offered by etsy are appropriate for your business.

Bit too small? Hot tip [added thanks to Lisa @]: click on the infographic and then (if needed) use the zoom in your browser to see details

I have posted a How to: What I used to make the etsy infographic on the fonts and textures used as well as the photoshop tutorials I read/watched to teach myself how to make some of these element.

    only thing I would add is that I couldn’t read it as it is and it took me (I’m not at as computer savvy as you) a minute to realize that if I clicked on the picture it would enlarge….so you might add that clicking on the picture would enlarge it …
