  • Identify key features of the Etsy platform
  • Navigate and set up an Etsy shop
  • Examine ways top sellers establish their brand identities and appeal to their target audiences
  • Create searchable descriptions, tags, and titles to get your items found

Get the tools you need to “craft” your skills as a successful online shop owner at this free workshop.

Beth brings a rich background of education, entrepreneurship, and outreach to her role on UCEDC’s training and technical assistance team.  A small business owner herself, she was most recently the co-founder and director of an award-winning yoga studio in Collingswood (and UCEDC microloan client!).  Prior to that she spent five years as a high school English teacher and 10 years as a community educator at Philadephia-based nonprofit organizations.  And don’t forget her stint as a member of The Trolleyvox, an indie pop group that recorded five albums (find them on iTunes!)
