Etsy was found in 2005 and it has become a familiar website among the artisans across the globe. The website focuses on unique and creative collections of handmade products, be it a hand kerchief or even an engagement ring, every product is unique in its own way! It has many contenders that involve some huge names as well namely Amazon and eBay. Etsy is also working on its features to grab more attention from online shoppers.
Recently, Etsy offered some crazy ground breaking deals for holidays in order to provide the best service to its users. It even conducts marketplaces in several countries around the world. Canada was Etsy’s target during the end of 2015 and many crafters turned out for the event. The event lasted for few days and the locals made the best off it. The event included handmade products that were unique and one of a kind. It was a huge success in and around Canada, and the sellers made good profit of it.
Etsy does several marketplace events in order to grab attention from the media and the public. Last year, the company’s revenue growth was very usual and Amazon had the best market shares in the ecommerce industry. The critics say the slow growth is due to poor search algorithms of Etsy that does not provide precise search results like the mighty Amazon. Nevertheless, the marketplace events are like reminders to people that Etsy is still in the competition!
