Sometime after Christmas, 2013, I was tooling around on Etsy, looking for a nice cover for my newly acquired Kindle Reader. Now, there’s a whole lot of crap on Etsy. I’m sure a lot of love goes into the hundreds of what I equate as the tea-cozy of device covers (this is what I’m talking about), but it’s obviously not my style. Luckily, I found Byrd & Belle on Etsy, and boy did that change my life.
The effort that went into making the Etsy shop look nice was by far one of the best displays I’d seen on that site ever. So impressed, I ordered the cover right away, and when it arrived, I was glad I made the purchase. From top to bottom, every single aspect of what Angie Davis of Byrd & Belle does is well thought out and perfectly orchestrated. From the product, to the photography and concise, thorough descriptions, to the branding, and all the packaging effort—Byrd & Belle knows how to make a customer love everything B&B does.
With all of Byrd & Belle’s perfection, it was a no-brainer for me to get Angie on the show, and so I did. Originally I was going to talk mostly about her experience with Etsy, but through the conversation, she told me about how Etsy is just one small portion of what B&B is about, and she shares all that wisdom with us in this interview.
Up front, besides gushing about all things Byrd & Belle, I also talk extensively about pricing and how it’s probably time for you to raise yours.
