Former student of University of Chester, with Fine Art BA and MA, and top seller on Etsy, Adam generously gave us the benefit of his experience selling hand-made, rustic, bespoke furniture on the Etsy platform. https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MujuFurnitureUK
This is to be followed by a series of workshops helping to set up accounts and generate sales for current students with work to sell.
Adam discussed the benefits of using Etsy including
* Easy management of ongoing costs
* Use of existing platform with a ready-built website
* Visibility of rival businesses
*Availability of statistics and ranking
There were several things to consider arising from this guest lecture such as shipping costs, VAT thresholds, which Adam noted were £86k pa.
