As an Etsy seller, the potential Ghost has as a platform for sellers is one of the aspects I’m most excited about. The simplicity of the platform lends itself really well to the DIY nature of Etsy, and will no doubt make for a brilliant platform to cross promote with facebook and twitter.
What’s so good about Etsy?
Etsy is a marketplace for artists and craft fanciers. An ebay for the hipster elite. It’s original and it’s beautiful.
The most important thing about Etsy is that it is easy! You don’t have to be a web designer to set up a shop, all you have to be is talented and committed to your craft. The same applies to ghost. Simplicity is key and that’s why Themeasaurus is keying in a plans to produce themes specifically for etsy sellers.
Why Ghost themes?
Themeasaurus plans to one day cater to every niche on the Etsy spectrum. Giving every Etsy seller who decides to give ghost a try the best shot at their blog being successful.
Most of the themes found on Ghost will be aesthetic and simple. Easy to use for both the seller, and the potential buyer. In the likely event that Etsy will produce a plugin for Ghost we will ensure that every etsy targeted theme is designed to optimize the application’s efficiency.
“How to” Channel
One of the best ways to market and etsy store is to show potential clients how you make your stuff. Teach the masses in the hope they won’t bother .
While no promises can be given before I receive a copy of Ghost, I am hoping that I will be able to integrate functionality for a specific, how-to-section. Which will allow etsy sellers to better search engine optimize their blog, and attract potential customers that they otherwise would not have found.
While all themes will come full stocked with a background that tickles your niche. Themeasaurus will also be producing background packs. Clusters of images, presented in high-res and web ready for you to take and make your own.
The aesthetic of your Etsy blog needs to tell the potential customer exactly what you are selling, which is why Themes for Ghost will have sets that cater to every niche.
All in all Ghost is going to be an extra string on the Etsy seller’s bow, and as the saying goes; the early bird gets the worm. So go and get some worms, and stay up to date with what’s happening with the Ghost blogging platform.
