So you're ready to create the Etsy biz of your dreams.
But it seems totally overwhelming, right? Like, honestly.. where would you even start?
Maybe you're not a tech genius so you think that running a website all by yourself is totally out of reach. (Guess what, me neither!)
Maybe you're not a 9-to-5 corporate office kind of person. (Millennials unite!)
Maybe you started a shop in the past but got so overwhelmed that you gave up. (Time to give it a second chance!)
Maybe you need an additional income stream to help support yourself and/or your family. (Dolla dolla bills, y'all!)
Maybe you just want an outlet to put your creativity out into the world. (Listen to your right brain!)
Or maybe you're worried you'll fail and that's keeping you from even starting. (Woah. Did I just read your mind?)
I've been where you are.
When I started my shop, I had a computer, a printer, and $300 to my name. No tech knowledge, no fancy MBA, and no idea how to use this newfangled Etsy thing.
Let's fast forward a little bit. Can I tell you a not-so-secret secret?
Etsy has literally changed my life.
I've created two successful shops with over 25,000 combined sales. With the knowledge I gained from the first one, I was able to turbo charge the second one, growing my revenue by $10K every year since it opened.
I created Etsy Empire: The Foundation with YOU in mind. I realized there were no other comprehensive courses for Etsy beginners. But, wait.. why the heck not? The beginning is the most crucial part of your journey!
My first shop opened in 2009, so with almost a decade of experience, I truly know the nooks and crannies of Etsy like the back of my very own hand. It's my job. It's my life. And now I want to share it with YOU.
You can do this.
I'm here for you. I'm your biggest cheerleader, your enthusiastic coach, your creative bestie.
Eeek! It's so nice to meet you! I'm Christen Strang, a long-time Etsy seller with 2 successful shops that have a combined total of over 25,000 sales.
Over the past decade in business, I have developed proven strategies for successful selling, and coached fellow creatives along the way to their own small biz dreams.
I'm super passionate about spreading the mission of handmade and vintage, and truly believe that everyone has an entrepreneurial spirit somewhere inside them. I've created the self-employed life of my dreams and I can’t wait to help you do the same!
Okay, Christen. I'm ready. Now, what exactly do I get inside Etsy Empire: The Foundation?
Woohoo! I'm so glad you asked!
You'll get 4 jam packed modules covering everything from naming your shop, branding basics, the anatomy of a perfect listing, navigating your first sale, customer service, promoting on social media, and so so so much more! Basically, this course sets you up for success right from the very beginning!
Etsy Empire: The Foundation is thoughtfully broken down into bite-sized chunks of information along with step-by-step tech tutorials. Not only is the course super easy to digest and follow along with, I'll be by your side throughout the entire journey.
Each week (over the span of 4 weeks), we'll focus on a different portion of Etsy shop set-up and you'll have full access to me inside the private students-only Facebook group. Trust me, that's where the party will be. Ask for feedback, celebrate your wins, meet fellow shop owners, and attend weekly Facebook Live Q&A sessions for the duration of the course (plus 2 weeks after)!
MODULE 1 The basics. Plain and simple. We'll chat about naming your shop, branding basics, filling in all the details to ensure your shop ranks higher in Etsy's search algorithm, and setting up your payment methods (because you gotta get paid, duh)!
MODULE 2 We'll start with the anatomy of a perfect listing and move on to a full VIP tour of the Listings Manager, which is crucial for running your shop to its fullest potential. Next, we'll tackle processing orders and shipping them out. (Spoiler alert: you'll never have to stand in line at the post office again!)
MODULE 3 Every sale is exciting, but that very first one will make you happy dance like you've never happy danced before! We'll talk about the part that comes after the sale, how to communicate with your customers so they have the best experience ever, navigate through custom requests, feedback, and your rights as a seller, just in case anything ever goes wrong.
MODULE 4 You've spent so much time and energy on your brand new shop, and you deserve to shout it from the rooftops! Let's finish strong by understanding how to promote and share your shop, keep up with messages and orders on the go, and post on social media like a boss.
And since I'm feeling extra generous.. you'll also get these AMAZING BONUSES!

Here's what some of my past students have to say about Etsy Empire: The Foundation..
"I have been on the hunt for a good Etsy course for a long time. I purchased two others over the years and they were so basic they didn't really even touch on how to get set up and running on Etsy ... I really wanted something to help me cut the overwhelm and save me time on researching all things Etsy. Your course does that and I'm super thankful."
- Vanessa Shepherd, Social Stampers
"I found gems in every module that excited me. I was so happy to demystify so much of the technical stuff and get excited about the other fun stuff. It was balanced and paced really well. I LOVED the super practical tips, and Christen did an amazing job taking us through everything in an organized way. Invaluable."
