Part of: THIS WEEKEND: Storyhouse Women

This workshop session with Becka Griffin is ideal for people who have a handmade product, or an idea for one, and are considering starting to sell online.

It will give an overview of the various different online platforms available – and the advantages and disadvantages of each, along with talking about postage and packing, photography, the legalities of selling online, writing product descriptions and the concept and importance of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).

Becka Griffin is a professionally-trained graphic artist who has been selling her illustrated cards, prints and giftwrap since 2009. In 2011 she opened her Etsy shop, and was so successful that by March 2014 she was able to give up her day job.

She is now an experienced online seller with more than 110,000 sales across various platforms.

Since 2014 Becka, who is based in Liverpool, has been supporting and mentoring other small businesses through her offshoot business Make & Flourish.

She has worked as a seller mentor for Etsy on various training programmes and also attended Etsy Summits throughout Europe. In 2017 she acted as an Etsy representative in Brussels, speaking with European Commissioners on behalf of other Etsy sellers.
