Many of us dream of opening an Etsy shop, and as each year goes by, more artists or entrepreneurs decide to go for it and open a shop and get it up to speed.
Yet running an Etsy is often more complicated than it looks. Owners need business supplies, shipping supplies, and future inventory. Since most work out of their homes, their houses are cluttered, with stacks of future inventory and shipping supplies.
Growing an Etsy small business entails more planning and strategy than owners anticipated, particularly when managing inventory.
One way to become more organized and establish an action plan is to rent a self-storage unit.
Self-storage units can free up needed space and help you stay focused and organized.
As demand increases for your Etsy business, so does the demand for materials and supplies. A self-storage unit can allow you to grow without worrying about filling up your home with materials.
Utilizing a self-storage unit can help you manage your Etsy business in the following ways:
Store Your Inventory
Based on the size of your products, inventory takes up space in your home. Storing your inventory in a self-storage unit can free up space in your home or office. With all items in one place, it is easy to design organizational flows within the unit.
Purchase Supplies in Bulk
Self-storage units allow you to optimize bulk sales and discounts. You won’t have to worry about the items piling up in your home. Depending on the inventory volume, you can choose a storage unit size that fits all your products.
Small Etsy businesses run much smoother when there is an organized process. You can create better systems in a self-storage unit, so you always know what is running low and what items need replenishment. It can also increase efficiency so you can produce and ship inventory faster.
Self-storage units can help develop growth. The unit promotes planning, and you have a better chance of efficiently growing your business when you’re more organized. Having a small space for all your inventory can limit the amount you can have at a time.
With room to spread out your inventory and know exactly the amount you have, your Etsy shop can reach its fullest potential.
