Marmalead keeps it simple. It’s our pleasure to serve the Etsy community with integrity and the highest quality products on the market. Have you heard less is more? That’s what Marmalead stands for. The internet is a distracting place. There’s a ton of opportunity out there, yet many shops are still failing. Why is that? It’s because they’re chasing things that don’t matter and focusing on the wrong details.
It’s easy to allow fancy features or a cheap price tag to make us feel better. But eventually the rubber will meet the road and you’ll need your tools to be working in real and meaningful ways. Sure, we could fill your screen with charts and numbers until your eyeballs fall onto your keyboard. But if those charts and numbers aren’t helping you reach real goals, then they’re about as worthwhile as a screen door on a submarine!
The business of busyness
Busy is often viewed as a sign of success. Most of the time, it’s not. And sometimes, it only serves to stand in the way of progress. We created Marmalead to cut down on your busy work and to give you your time back. We want you to spend less time more efficiently and your tools should speed things up, not slow you down. Our commitment to our community is to create and maintain the most accurate and relevant application that will help you do real work.
Who is Marmalead?
At the heart of this company is a small group that is dedicated to the notion that small business and entrepreneurship are the lifeblood of individual opportunity. We are people who truly care about the success of Etsy shops. That includes your shop.
Not only has Marmalead created a set of tools, they’ve also created a community of folks who act as a support mechanism for one another and are able to answer questions and give and receive feedback from each other. There are plenty of forums out there where Etsy sellers are communicating and posting, but we try to keep the Marmalead community free from much of the gossip and false information that circulates, and keep it focused on relevant and helpful information.
Because You’re Worth It!
Meaningful guidance is hard. But you deserve meaningful guidance because you’re real people with real lives to live and it matters if you succeed! Think about all the click bait you see online. Does that help anyone? No. Does it make the publisher a lot of money? Yes. It’s wrong, and it’s bad for the community. Our goal at Marmalead is to give you the good stuff, information that isn’t watered down or fluffed up. Our team wants you to find real value in our product and community. We want to tackle the hard questions and give you answers and tools that can be used in your everyday Etsy life. We want to provide a place for you to come, knowing you can trust the information provided as being relevant and valuable to you as a seller.
Because it should be fun!
We want to provide fun opportunities (here’s lookin’ at you, Easter Eggs and desktop calendars) that will simply put a smile on your face. Our team is constantly brainstorming new features and benefits to offer our subscribers and as far as we’re concerned, the possibilities are endless! We love that we’ve created a set of tools to help you reach your Etsy sales goals. But we also love creating things that make your Etsy SEO journey fun! This is important to us and something we strive for on a daily basis. Why? Because to us, you’re the bees knees!
Marmalead vs Knockoff Competitors?
We get this question a lot. “Why should I choose Marmalead over a knockoff competitor? For us, it’s about community and the values that are behind a product or a brand. Marmalead was first to market with this idea, and though others have come behind and copied the basic format of the tools, Marmalead remains committed to doing everything it can to innovate and consistently push out content aimed at helping serious sellers see real results and achieve their goals.
A big difference between Marmalead and knockoff competitors is that we’re 100% user supported. You won’t see any ads in our app. So the money that you pay for Marmalead is what makes it possible for us to provide app support, a regular source of content that includes a blog, podcasts featuring various guests, seller guides, trending keywords sent to your inbox, training videos, personalized customer service, a moderated online community, and more. We can’t make you choose Marmalead over knockoff competitors and we know that each consumer has to choose the things that are of utmost value to them! But when you’re here, you’re more than a customer…you’re a member of the Marmanation and we’re thankful and grateful you’re with us!
What does this all mean?
Marmalead keeps it simple and every day we strive to serve the Etsy community with integrity and the highest quality products available. Which means that while it might be easier to show you fancy features or a cheap price tag we’d rather provide you with tools that work in real and meaningful ways. It means that we created Marmalead to give you your time back. In other words, we want you to spend less time more efficiently and we want our tools to be at the heart of that venture. It means we’re a small but very dedicated group of people committed to helping Etsy Shops succeed. Meaningful guidance is hard, but you’re real people with real lives to live and it matters if you succeed, so we’re here to help! And finally, it means we want you to have fun along the way! Basically what we’re saying is…Together we work, together we play, together we slay!
Happy selling, Marmawarriors!

Thank YOU, Sheryl! We appreciate and value you as part of our Marmalead community. Thanks for choosing to be a part of it:)
Thank you, Tracey! So happy you find value with us and that you’re in our Marmalead family! Happy selling 🙂
One of the things you can probably chalk up as a win for marmalead is “accuracy”. I find your tools to be more accurate or truthful in the data.
I have used and like marmalead however you do have a challenge with your value proposition. I would suggest that you can take this idea to the next level and provide more meaningful analysis for a shop.
Ie: So a shop uses a tool to improve it’s seo, you might even see some impact on sales or views. Is this because of seo or just seasonal or is it even due to a single good listing? It takes a great deal of effort for a shop owner to try and figure this out. More importantly, what if sales are falling. Again, it takes a lot of work to try and find out why.
Related to this, how are items doing relative to the competition. Sure I can do a rank test to find my items but I can’t tell how all of them are doing, I can’t tell how well they do relative to specific comps either.
I think the data is there, I think marmalead could derive it. You don’t have to have very many listings at all in your shop before the data required to figure out how well items are doing is basically an overwhelming task.
Thank you very much! I am very happy to work with your tools. This helped me make my first $ 500 a month, and then $ 700. Tthis is a big win for me. I could not do this myself for 5 years.
That’s amazing and we’re SO happy to hear it!!! Happy selling!
