As the year winds to a close, I thought it would be fitting to take a look back at the business tips from 2011. Â This year, we had 8 awesome bloggers contribute to create 49 posts. Â All of these posts were aimed at helping advance our Etsy shops and improve our performance both online and off.
The time between Christmas and New Years often provides some quiet time to reflect on the business and plan for the new year. Â So, I figured a post that links to all the business tips from 2011 in one place might be helpful as you fill some of your quiet time.
