Crack the Google Code!
Angela cracked the Google code. It wasn't easy - it took lots of trial and error - and she sometimes didn't shower or eat for days on on end - but she cracked it! That is how she moved up to #1 in the Google search engine - and sold over $100,000 of handmade wedding merchandise on Etsy in her first 14 months. Angela has been in the Etsy trenches - and has real opinions on what you should name your Etsy store, how you should handle shipping and how to turn every customer into repeat business. . . . your success depends of cracking the code!
