LEARN HOW TO MAKE ETSY WORK HARDER FOR YOU
FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN THERE, DONE THAT.
I'm Danielle and I've been there, done that and I can help you!
I’m the maker and handmade business mentor behind the Merriweather Council and creator of The Etsy Training Course.
My entrepreneurial crafting journey started 11 years ago when I ditched grad school to start a handmade business (yeah, everyone thought I was nuts).
I worked SO HARD to make a whopping $4,000 my first year in business. I realized that all the hustling I’d been doing should generate results longer. With some major changes to my approach with Etsy, I brought in nearly $80K in sales from my Etsy shop in my second year.
Thousands of sales, features and a loyal customer base later, I now teach other crafty entrepreneurs how to build profitable businesses!
My Etsy shop has brought lucrative opportunities! My work has been featured on TV and in national and international publications including Better Homes and Gardens, People Style Watch, The Today Show, Mollie Makes, Country Living, The Knot New York and Well Wed Magazine.
At every point, my shop works harder for me than I work for it and that's exactly how I like it!
Let me teach you how to make it happen for yourself!
The “secret” to selling more on Etsy isn’t about working harder, hustling more, or spending every waking hour on your shop.
There’s another, simpler way to be successful.
One that lets you do more of the creative work you LOVE, have time for an actual life, AND earn more money from what you make!

Will this course work for me if I sell vintage/ supply/ edibles/ something other than handmade?
Yes! This course will work for any Etsy seller! The course explains how to become more visible on the Etsy platform and how to maximize the potential of your shop. It makes no difference what is being sold in your shop in order for this course to apply.
Will this course work for me if I live outside of the United States?
Yes! It doesn't matter where your shop is located. If you are able to access Etsy and your product is Etsy-legal, the course can work for you!
How long will it take me to go through this course?
You could easily watch and read over all the materials in a single day, though you will likely want to go over the materials multiple times. Depending on the size of your shop and your individual work pace, the time it takes to implement the course will vary from person to person! Also depending on your caffeine consumption.
Is this course good for a brand new shop owner? Or is it only/ better for established sellers?
This course is IDEAL for a seller who has not yet begun listing because it will lay out exactly how to optimize your shop and listings. This means if you take the course before listing anything, you're in a position to begin on the best possible foot and will not have to edit everything that is already in place.
However, this course is also great for shops that are full because what's the point of having a full shop if it isn't visible? Further, long time sellers often have better personal insights they can apply to get even more out of the course strategies.
I'm brand new, should I just get a feel for how to navigate things first?
It is a better long term strategy to start off with good insights and training than to learn "everything" from your own experiences. It will save time and headache. Why reinvent the wheel? When you clear up the functional know-how, you'll have more brain space for learning the stuff that is unique to you - to learn what does and doesn't work for your specific products and brand.
I have been on Etsy for 3+ years already, is it really possible I don't already know everything that is in this course.
Absolutely. I have had sellers who've been selling for 7+ years take this course and love it! Many times established sellers get comfortable with a certain approach and don't realize that approach is no longer preferable or is out dated. Some long time sellers also simply "missed" some things in their years of focusing on making stuff and not paying too much attention to the ever changing Etsy landscape.
Can I access the course materials from a phone/ iPad?
Yes. As long as you can get online, you can access it. For the absolute best experience, we suggest using a laptop or desktop computer to work on your shop as you follow along with the course! Don't forget snacks.
I've taken other courses and gotten nowhere. How is this different?
Many courses focus on how to drive traffic to your Etsy shop (pins, tiktok, reels, emails, etc) and/ or just dig into SEO. We don't think it makes sense to work on social media or other marketing for the benefit of an Etsy shop, we want Etsy to work for you. Instead of focusing on doing a million things to get traffic from elsewhere to your Etsy shop, we focus on how Etsy can generate traffic and visibility from within for your shop. Search ranking is ONE thing to optimize for. It's not everything and it's not enough. Our course focuses on how to create an Etsy shop that works for you, by identifying and leveraging all the opportunities of Etsy that can apply to your shop. This approach is unique, different from what you've learned before and probably feels weird if you're used to something else, but we know it works!
Can you guarantee results or money back?
Sure can't! It's actually not-legal/ is wildly unethical for me to guarantee any monetary gains and there is no way I could, really. I am giving you the tools but it's your responsibility to use them. However, I have hundreds of happy students who freely share their testimonials and are not paid for them in any way. There is no affiliate program for this course so you can be sure that the testimonials are real and genuine and no one is "getting anything" from me for sharing these. This course is not magic, you need to implement the strategies. It's work, but you are already doing work, aren't you?
How much will I have to spend on on-site ads? (formerly known as Promoted Listings)
$0.00. We don't recommend them in the course. You do not need an ads budget in order to see success with our strategy.
How long will I have access to the materials?
Anything you access via our course site merricourses.com will be available to you until September 1, 2023 (that's more than a year! And we assure you, PLENTY of time.)
What support do you offer course students outside the course materials?
This course was designed and built so that you can see success with it without needing to rely on us! We think that is a beautiful thing. Pretty much every question we COULD answer for you, has been answered within the existing course materials including our extensive FAQ. We will have email support available through November 18, 2022 for any questions that might remain or if any clarity on course material is needed. If this arrangement doesn’t work for your learning style or if you prefer 1-1 or group ‘coaching’ style courses, this is not the course for you.

Our training course has taught hundreds of sellers how to make thousands of dollars on Etsy, and you should be one of them!
