Handmade Journey Academy December 2017

Go From Overwhelmed to Consistent Sales

Do you dream of …  

  • Being your own boss so you can call the shots?  
  • Making money creating the products you love?  
  • Hand-crafting products that bring people joy?
  • Freedom over your time and money so you can live life the way you want?  
  • Getting paid to create every single day?

You’ve got the idea and the craftsman skills to make that happen.

…but you’re not so sure how to get eyes on your Etsy shop and see the sales roll in day after day.

So how are you ever supposed to leave your job or pay for your vacations or retire your spouse if you can’t seem to see steady consistency in your sales?  

That’s where the Handmade Journey Academy comes in. 

The Handmade Journey Academy is a one-of-a-kind membership community for handmade sellers who need the online technology skills to get their creations seen and sold consistently.  

So you can get paid to create every day.

You’ll learn the skills you need to …

  • Optimize your Etsy store for searching and selling 
  • Build an audience of raving fans of your creations through email marketing 
  • Get seen on social media for more traffic and results 
  • Keep your expenses down and your profits up so you bank more money for yourself  

"I can't even begin to count all of the ways that the Handmade Journey Academy has helped my business grow. I struggled with SEO for a good few months before stumbling upon Jami's blog, and ultimately the Academy. I also knew next to nothing about how to interact with an audience on Facebook and Instagram and HJA helped me tremendously there too! Having a wonderful community of makers to encourage you and help you along the way is invaluable."

"Handmade Journey Academy (HJA) has been amazing! In terms of my web business platform, I wasn't on the map until I found HJA. Jami has provided many tools to to not only develop my Etsy shop, but also the whole process behind the scenes helping me to get and stay organized and efficient.  

What makes this group different from all of the others I have joined and left behind me is the support system. The positive energy and support among members on a daily basis has motivated me on more than one occasion to keep going."

How Do I Know?

In case you don't know me yet, I’m Jami King. I'm owner of Liberty Island Farm, a 5 star rated Etsy shop which has made over 4,200 individual sales since opening in 2016.  

Like you, I started with dreams of using my passion to create a profitable business -- so I committed myself to learning the ins and outs of SEO and marketing for ensuring my success.  

I’ve mastered what it takes to get more eyes on my products, having an appealing shop for more sales, how to keep more of the money I make on every sale, and having a consistent income that supports my passion and my family.

And I’m giving you the shortcuts. What I learned through trial and error and months of studying online marketing and technology, I’m giving to you in easy to complete courses inside the Handmade Journey Academy.

"The Handmade Journey Academy has helped me grow my business tremendously! I don't even know where to start. I remember my Mom and I would try doing our own research, spending hours that we did not have, money that we did not have, only to make all of the changes that later we would find out were incorrect. We really struggled finding the time to become SEO experts! It was just not going to happen. 

Simply put, Jami puts YEARS of research into one amazingly easy to navigate website that you can get through fairly quickly, always learning something new. The best part is that it is always right there for reference. I have seen the quickest improvements ever, using the Handmade Journey Academy."

Tara Blank of thecottonhaven.etsy.com

"The Handmade Journey Academy is not just for new Etsy sellers! Even veteran sellers can benefit from the ocean of information provided on the Academy website and in the private Facebook group. I thought I knew it all. But since implementing some of the techniques Jami has suggested I have doubled my conversion rate, sales are way up, and my business is out of its plateau and back on the rise!"
