Is selling on Etsy worth it in 2021 and beyond? In this video I look at the pros and cons of selling on Etsy in order to create passive income.

I personally sell digital product on Etsy and while I also have moved offsite to selling on my own website I do still utilize the benefits of selling on Etsy. I’ve found a hybrid system works best to minimize the downsides to selling on Etsy.

You might be wondering if you should start an Etsy shop (I think the answer is yes). If you are thinking about selling on Etsy this video will give you an idea of the pros and cons you will face when you start selling.

I started selling digital downloads to go along with my YouTube channel in 2019 and fell in love with digital products. It’s been my favorite creative hobby and one of my best, most consistent income streams that earns me money every month even if I don’t work on it. On this channel I love sharing creative projects and all the info I’ve learned about how to create and sell digital downloads for passive income.
