I rely on specific resources to help me run my Etsy shop and my blog.  Here are the resources that I have tried, tested, and absolutely love:

Sites and Services:

Etsy Free Listings for New Sellers – If you haven’t yet signed up for an Etsy seller account use this link to sign up and receive 40 free listings.  Forty listings are an $8 value!

Creative Live – This site has live courses to help creatives with things like marketing, photography, and branding.  Classes are free to watch during the time that they launch.  You can add upcoming courses to your schedule to get reminders.

The Hungry JPEG – My go-to site for amazing fonts and design elements.  I use these to create products and promotional materials for my Etsy shop.  They have some great free fonts too!

Marmalead – An amazing tool for making sure your listings appear in Etsy’s search results

EtsyRank – Another great Etsy SEO tool with all kinds of resources to find keywords and the info you need to run your shop.

Social Media Management:

Board Booster – I use Board Booster as a scheduling tool for Pinterest.  It also has a looping feature to repin your existing pins that I really like.

SmarterQueue – If you’re looking for a scheduling tool to automate all of your social media posts, SmarterQueue is my fav.  It’s affordable yet has all the features of the bigger expensive schedulers.


Dymo 4XL Thermal Label Printer – This label printer is great for shipping labels.  It helps speed up the shipping process and because it is thermal you don’t have to buy ink which saves money.

Dymo 4XL Labels – I’ve tried a few brands of labels for my Dymo 4XL and these are my favorite.
