Whether you’re an avid e-commerce buyer or seller, most would agree that finding the right marketplace for your niche is key.  The leading niche e-commerce marketplace happens to be a fantastic website known as Etsy. Surely you are already aware of Etsy and, like us, have lost yourself for an hour while scrolling through pages of good finds. But if not, it’s time to check it out!

They call themselves “the world’s brightest vibrant handmade marketplace”, and we’re not going to disagree with them. Etsy is a treasure trove of interesting DIY creations and vintage finds with 15 million users in more than 150 countries. Needless to say, their business growth is closely matched with another infamous e-commerce site, eBay.

Online shopping is a weakness we don’t want to admit that we frequently give in to, but as an artist, crafter, thrifter, sewer, photographer or creator, Etsy has become an incredible platform to become more accessible to a new audience. Created in 2005, Etsy’s mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. This means that very small businesses can reach a very big audience. Everyone loves an underdog story and it’s absolutely inspiring to learn that hobby crafters can make more than $25,000 doing something they love on this website.

Here at JB, we love Etsy because it’s easy. We also love supporting small businesses, independent designers and artists. It’s a pretty great feeling to know that you’re purchasing a unique or one-of-a-kind item! Personalized and commissioned pieces are also an important part of the Etsy community and certainly are impressive. Not to mention, the price seems to always be right and most items are very affordable. We can’t forget that Etsy is the perfect place to purchase gifts and get some creative inspirations!

If you think you know all there is about Etsy just because you’ve shopped there, you’re wrong! Thanks to MBA Online , we now have a fantastic infographic to better explain Etsy’s success!
