Courtney Gillard, founder of LaDy LaDuke, recently reached Amazon best seller lists in three different countries with her book “How to Etsy: Marketing Your Etsy Shop.”
Tucson, AZ – Fame Jumpers PR and Marketing congratulates Courtney Gillard, best-selling author of “How to Etsy: Marketing Your Etsy Shop” which recently hit Amazon Best Seller lists in three countries.
The booked reached #1 in the ‘Business of Art’ category, #2 in the ‘Arts and Photography’ category, and #3 in the ‘Commerce’ category. In addition, Gillard’s book reached three Amazon best seller lists and Germany and three Amazon best seller lists in Canada.
For a number of years, Gillard has been designing, manufacturing, and selling items for mothers in her own successful Etsy store. While still very active with her own Etsy store, Gillard has turned some of her focus to helping others create their own successful brands online. Gillard remarked, “The purpose of the book is to help the online business novice, who may be an artist or a Mom at home knowing she can open an Etsy Shop, but who may not know the details of how to make an Etsy Shop idea an actual business and brand that is growing and making money.”
Gillard’s book is the third, and final, installment in a series of Etsy books that she has released to take future Etsy entrepreneurs from idea, to implementation, and finally to profit. When asked about her motivation for creating her Etsy book series, Gillard responded, “I tend to get a lot of grateful communications from customers on Etsy about how fast I respond to them, which tells me there are some business basics missing for many Etsy Sellers. My inspiration for this book stems from the necessity of combining business and artistry. You can’t really have just creativity or artistry and no business or vice versa. The combination is required for a winning formula.”
Now that all three books have reached best seller status, Gillard feels she has a proven formula to help those wanting to find success with Etsy. Gillard also understands that many of the skills used for creating a successful Etsy shop can be transferred to create success in other online businesses, and she is she is using this knowledge to help others achieve success outside of Etsy.
