Featuring interviews with Etsy shop owners. Get to hear the personal Etsy stories behind your favorite Etsy shops as well as those you haven't yet discovered. it all began when a Turkish classical musician, a graphic designer, and an iPhone newbie/crafting geek all happily collided in the summer of 2013 in a happy conspiracy that birthed the new host and the revival of the Etsy Conversations Podcast. As an iPhone newbie trying to figure out what the funny-looking purple icon on her phone was, Ijeoma discovered a podcast that was in desperate need of life support. A few conversations, emails and two to five petite cups of Turkish apple tea later, the podcast went from the brink of obsolescence to becoming the watercooler hub for all things Etsy, handmade, and arts & crafts-related. The Etsy Conversations Podcast is the home of inspiring interviews with and for veteran and newbie Etsy sellers where you get tips, techniques, and tools to make you a better more successful Etsy seller by learning from other Etsy sellers. If you’re looking for ways to get more sales and more traffic to your Etsy shop, be a guest on the Etsy Conversations Podcast and promote your Etsy shop to thousands of listeners across the globe while inspiring other Etsy sellers to take their Etsy business to the next level.

Love this podcast! Perfect for New Etsy sellers
I love listening to all the stories behind these Etsy stores! It motivates me to continue my Etsy journey. I just started my Etsy shop in August 2020 and already made 300 sales!
I look forward to this podcast each week as I always learn something new! The conversations are always engaging, informative, and down to earth which I appreciate!
I’ve been listing vintage on Etsy for several years now but recently ramped up my efforts and starting adding in some handmade items. I found this podcast and it’s honestly a treasure trove of good advice. I love that there is information for both vintage and handmade sellers. The host does a great job at interviewing never seems to interrupt her guests and has a lovely, soothing voice.
