1. IT DOES NOT COST A PENNY TO OPEN YOUR SHOP
Many people ask, how much does it cost to open up an Etsy shop, well I am here to tell you that it is 100% FREE. The cost of running an Etsy shop comes when you list products and make a sale. To list a product Etsy charges you .20 cents per listing and 5% of every transaction. However, if you open your shop up using this listing- HERE

2.YOU CAN DO IT ON YOUR SPARE TIME AND FROM HOME
Starting an Etsy shop can be done from anywhere and whenever, you can open your shop and create products on your schedule! Whether it’s early in the morning, on your commute to work, or maybe it’s after dinner once the kids are asleep. You are in control of the energy and time you
3. YOU DON’T NEED TO LEARN A NEW SKILL
The benefit of starting a digital product Etsy shop is the fact that you do not need to learn a new skill! You can sell products based on a skill you already have! Are you good at making spreadsheets in Excel? Perhaps you sell monthly budgeting planners, or maybe you are great with photoshop and sell preset image editors. The options are endless, know what you are good at and use it to your advantage!
4. YOU WILL START MAKING PASSIVE INCOME
The best part about digital products on Etsy is that the work only needs to be done ONCE, you create your product, list it on Etsy and then you continue to make sales on that one product- residual income. Imagine this, you wake up in the morning and take a peek at your phone, notification from Etsy you made $30 while you were sleeping. How will you spend that $30?
5. IT IS A FUN AND CREATIVE OUTLET/SIDE HUSTLE
Owning a digital product Etsy shop gives you a creative space to start using the right side of your brain. There are no rules when it comes to the product you create (minus legal trademarks and such but more on that another time.) If you are inspired to create a product based on wine or an event you went to so be it! This shop can be used in a way to express your creative side!
