Tucson, AZ / ACCESSWIRE / July 24th, 2014 / Fame Jumpers PR and Marketing congratulates Courtney Gillard, best-selling author of “How to Etsy: Photos and Listings” which recently hit three Amazon Best Seller lists.
The booked reached #1 in the ‘Commerce’ category, #1 in the ‘Business and Money’ category, as well as a third #1 in the ‘Arts and Photography’ category.
Gillard is adept at creating unique items for mothers and selling them in her own successful Etsy store and has turned her knowledge and passion into another business where she works with others to help them to create their own successful online businesses. Gillard remarked, “The purpose of the book is to help the online business novice, who may be an artist or a Mom at home knowing she can open an Etsy Shop, but who may not know the details of how to make an Etsy Shop idea an actual business and brand that is growing and making money.”
Gillard’s book is the second installment in a series of Etsy books intended to take future Etsy entrepreneurs from concept to completion, including effective marketing of their Etsy shop. When asked what prompted her to create the book series, Gillard responded, “I tend to get a lot of grateful communications from customers on Etsy about how fast I respond to them, which tells me there are some business basics missing for many Etsy Sellers. My inspiration for this book stems from the necessity of combining business and artistry. You can’t really have just creativity or artistry and no business or vice versa. The combination is required for a winning formula.”
With an extremely successful launch of her second book now behind her, Gillard sees that there is a growing crowd of people lining up to start their own Etsy businesses, and she is working to help them to learn from her experience.
Gillard is preparing to launch the third and final installment of the Etsy book series next month.
Gillard’s book, “How to Etsy: Photos and Listings” is available on Amazon.com.
