From 7 orders a year to 5,325 orders with Crystal Seymour's bead supply shop

In this episode, I talk to Crystal Seymour, who owns an Etsy shop called "You Don't Need a Reason," where she sells bracelets and gemstone beads that are handmade for those who love making jewelry. She shares her story of how she started in 2017 and only made seven sales in the first year. Crystal then talks about how she changed her focus to selling only stretch bracelets and joined our Etsy Accelerator program, which is a community of successful Etsy sellers that provide guidance to help others succeed. The program covers everything from product photography to marketing and SEO. Crystal's shop gained momentum and went from seven orders in 2017 to over 5,000 orders in 2022. Listen to her motivating story!
