Do you ever find yourself tempted to let go of your shop on Etsy and just sell your products on your own website? This thought pops up here and there as people wonder if Etsy is worth the fees they're paying. It's always tempting to cut out anything that skims money from your profits, but would you have as many sales without Etsy's advantages.
I came across a blog post about a month ago that addressed this topic very well. Everything Etsy points out that the Etsy brand is a powerful thing. People arrive at Etsy.com ready to shop and they trust Etsy in a way that they probably wouldn't trust you selling on your own.
What do you think? Make a go of it on your own or stick with Etsy?
