Do you believe in beginner's luck? I think beginner's luck is probably a combination of naivete and enthusiasm. Newbies are willing to take risks, that coupled with their excitement can be infectious! If you are new to Etsy, use that energy to gain all the knowledge you can. And if you are a long-time Etsy seller, try to evoke that eagerness you had when just starting your shop.

. Etsy Success for Beginners HeyMichelle, an Etsy Admin, has recently posted an amazingly resourceful article for new sellers. The tips in this post answer the most frequently asked newbie questions and give great tips for those just starting a shop.  Michelle covers everything from item photography to tips for getting exposure.
