Who is Gen Z and why should you care? Typically the children of Millennials, Gen Z is a demographic for those born roughly between 1997-2012, making them about 9-24 years old. If the recent acquisition of Depop by Etsy tells us anything, it’s that Etsy is actively taking steps to reach this generation, and you should too. But don’t be so quick to close your Etsy shop and start selling your mom jeans on Depop – because that’s just cheugy.
Cheugy [ chew-gee ] – The opposite of trendy. Broadly describes someone who is out of date or trying too hard, This may include but not be limited to fashion, habits on social media, usage of slang, etc.
So, what does the New York Times say is un-cheugy? Thrifting, making your own clothes, handmade products, Levi’s jeans, Birkenstocks, and home decor not found at Target. Lucky for Etsy sellers, one-of-a-kind handmade products are decidedly very un-cheugy, which means more Gen Z-ers (also known as Zoomers) may start to find their way to the Etsy marketplace through Depop. Are the products you sell on Etsy cheugy? Or does Gen Z fit your target audience? The folks at GWI have prepared some very tangible data, all about the latest trends on Gen Z.
We get it. Learning the ins and outs of the Etsy marketplace takes more than enough time as it is. Who has the time to learn a new marketplace like Amazon Homemade? And it’s true, if you go in blind, you’ll be setting yourself up for long, painstaking hours, trying to learn what’s what on Amazon, but will you see a return on your investment and time? Maybe, or maybe not.
So, if you want to save time and learn how to sell on Amazon the right way, then this is the course for you. Mastering Amazon™ is a comprehensive program designed to optimize your Amazon business while helping you get consistent sales so you can increase your overall revenue without the constant hustle.
