Etsy is a good starting point if you are a handmade maker . There’s teams in some cases local and even in states if your based in USA . Etsy sellers tend to be willing to help each other and in some cases will be your cheerleader when a bad review comes in . Starting small is never a bad thing .
The reason I always tell people to start on etsy or any other online market site is to test the waters . To see if your products gets views and WHAT starts selling .If sales are low and views are low get a business coach or a shop mentor !
My advice to you is to start small learn what you can and take a chance . And once the ” bank ” starts getting a little big then start looking into hiring a designer ! To build your shops branding and your dream online store .
