The Etsy Business Diploma Course guides aspiring entrepreneurs through the initial stages of launching an Etsy shop – from discovering your niche and listing your products effectively to marketing, managing and growing your business.

Learn the essentials of setting up and launching an Etsy shop – including tips on naming your shop, producing professional quality photographs for your product images, writing product descriptions, the importance of shop aesthetics, and discovering how to craft the perfect landing page. Find out how you’ll be paid and the kinds of fees you can expect to pay.

Examine how to grow your Etsy business with SEO optimisation techniques, important considerations in e-marketing and e-branding, and how to improve customer satisfaction and increase sales conversions. Review how to promote your Etsy shop on various social media platforms and in-person events.

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
