This week we talk with Julie Granbois about how to use Etsy and Pinterest together. Julie as tons of great insight on both of these platforms. She is a DIY enthusiast and loves making any kind of crafts in her spare time. Her source of inspiration comes from Pinterest, where she has created group boards where many other Pinners share their own crafts and crafty ideas. She finds that the more we see, the more inspired we get, and more likely to create more beautiful things.
She was so inspired with what she saw on Pinterest that she decided to open her own Etsy shop. As she was studying what pins were more popular on Pinterest, it dawned on her what kind of products she should be offering, and started making them. Since then, she has been growing her hobby into a small business and learned what it takes to market an Etsy shop on Pinterest.
