Taking Your Home Business to the World Market with Etsy, with Pamela Zimmerman
Pamela Zimmerman opened her first Etsy shop in 2008, and has had over 6.000 sales there. Although she was a Fiber Artist of international standing, with hundreds of awards to her credit and work appearing in numerous books, magazines and articles, Pamela found her work was not very marketable in Eastern North Carolina. Long distance gallery relationships took a lot of effort and meant her artwork was out of her immediate control. Finding Etsy was the solution to selling! Pamela maintains 4 shops on Etsy.com, selling pottery, metal, fiber and vintage items. Read more about her at PamelaZimmerman.net
