Etsy Online Income Opportunity

by Scott on July 22, 2008

I will be the first to admit that I don’t have any artistic capabilities. In fact, my 4 year old and I can draw the same stick figures. It’s funny and frightening, at the same time. I was researching some recent changes to the ebay feedback policy and stumbled across a great website called Etsy. I’m probably the last one to know about this wonderful website for artists and designers that enable them to sell items worldwide. I’m amazed at the quality and detail that many of these handmade items have. Here are a few examples that I found:

I was looking for a new dog bed and came across this item called Puppy Lovey. If you have the ability to sew and some old fabric around the house, this could be a great little money maker. Give your kids something to do on those boring summer days and make some money too.

Look at what Mittenmaker has done with an old tennis racket cover. You could make several of these from a tennis racket cover. And, who ever uses a tennis racket cover? Nobody! I use a tennis bag and usually throw away the racket cover.

Baby Bug Shoe Designs made some little baby golf shoes. I could see grandparents buying these by the truckload for the grandkids.

What a wonderful online job for your kids this summer. Tell them to fire up the sewing machine and make some money with Etsy. As a teenager, I might have been tempted to do it myself. Your kids could easily make spending money for the summer, or clothes money for the next school year. Parents, what a fun way to teach your kids to be creative and make some spending money. And don’t forget about you parents, I know you are more creative than I am. I would be interested if you sell on etsy, and if Etsy has become an alternative income source for you. I also have a list of passive income ideas you can review here.

I have had an Etsy store for a couple of years making bath and body products, and just sold my company. Etsy is really great and you can find anything on there. I highly recommend it!

Its been a while since I had time to do my blog commenting! Well, I actually started a venture and I hope that you will take a look at it. I love Frugal Dad and I’d like to sponsor it with some traffic, allow you probably don’t need it. :) We were looking to see if you could review us or perhaps have a banner of our site up on your blog? What is the cost of purchasing an ad banner for the header part of your site? (Drop12 – is a “click.comment.earn” site)

We recently started a site and want bloggers to join up in the community. We currently have 700+ members now and what to grow a lot more. Practically, what it is… a website with blog readers and folks wanting to earn while they view blogs, comment, etc.

Its kind of like Entrecard but you make real money not credits and your viewers stay on your site for a minimum of 35-40 seconds guaranteed.

Single Guy recently purchased an ad from us. He could get his return on investment simply by becoming a member and clicking on blogs and earning too! The cool thing is that if you refer folks, you get 100% of their earnings as a premium member.

Anyways, I wanted to share that with you in hopes that you’ll take a look at and hook up with us in our movement.

Could we still try and offer some traffic for a review? Let us know what you think.
