MAKING SALES ON ETSY IS FUN, but it's even more fun BEYOND ETSY!

Ready to move beyond Etsy?

We've got you covered.

Hi! I’m Sasha, Head Coach at Gold City Ventures™, Mom of two, blogger, and a former 9-5 manager in corporate accounting. I’m a top 1% seller on Etsy with over 20,000 sales who has coached thousands of students to Etsy success. ❤

I love selling on Etsy but my business took off when I added additional revenue streams through blogging, email marketing, social media, and freelancing. I now have a six-figure business!

I’ve curated the trainings in Beyond to help both digital and handmade sellers learn how to diversify their business off Etsy too.

You’ll get access to me in the Beyond community platform and during Live Q&As. I can’t wait to help you!

YES! IT's WORTH IT TO DIVERSIFY YOUR INCOME STREAMS OFF ETSY!

Come join our community of amazing students:

Hi! I'm JULIE and I'm A Co-FOUNDEr OF THE Gold City Ventures™ team.

Online business has transformed my life. In July of 2021, I quit my tech job when my entrepreneurial income started to cover the cost of my lifestyle… and since then I’ve never looked back!

I started off monetizing a blog, selling on Etsy, and podcasting.

Then I took my business to the next level. I started email marketing, built a brand with my business partner, Cody 🙌 ! And I was hooked.

Let’s not forget, I had ZERO formal background in marketing and I was terrified to show my face online. If I can do it, I know that you can too. Don’t miss an opportunity to build a sustainable business on your own terms!

I’ve personally coached students to build larger 6-figure brands through selling products on their own websites. I now have a team of powerhouse sellers who specialize in physical and digital products as coaches alongside me in my business as well.

It’s fun building your brand and it’s possible if you take the right steps!

Imagine what it would be like if...

You were able to GET NOTICED MORE AND INCREASE SALES OF YOUR PRODUCTS.
You were able to BUILD A BRAND THAT YOUR CUSTOMERS RECOGNIZE AND LOVE.
You were able to OWN YOUR CUSTOMER JOURNEY END TO END WITH A WEBSITE.
You were able to get paying customers while you sleep!
With our BRAND NEW PROGRAM, BEYOND, you can learn TO EXPAND YOUR BUSINESS BEYOND ETSY!

About The Beyond Membership

Beyond is a monthly membership where you will receive immediate access to all self-paced training videos, calendar events, and community forums for an affordable monthly price.

Beyond has a completely different focus than the other Gold City Ventures program, E-Printables, and Beyond serves both handmade and digital product sellers in growing their business.

The membership is housed in the new, easy-to-use platform, Skool, which also has a mobile app. The focus of the trainings is selling off Etsy and it’s customized depending on the nature of your business and where you want to go. For example, if you don’t want to sell on social media, we have other paths you can take to grow your business such as selling on Shopify, blogging, or affiliate marketing.

We help you sort through the options so you know which path makes the most sense for you. You get all of this for an affordable monthly price and you retain access as long as you stay in the membership. You can cancel at any time.

In the BEYOND COMMUNITY we

  • Host live Q&A, strategy sessions, and virtual meetups
  • Help you understand what your first, second, and third steps should be in growing beyond Etsy
  • Teach you to do competitive analysis, email marketing, blogging, social media, e-commerce & more
  • Answer your questions and perform individualized audits when you reach certain milestones
  • Run 30-day challenges & celebrate your successes
  • Give away prizes to keep things fun!

YOUR Membership includes

  • Access to 20+ courses, 300+ templates, and our private group coaching in our new easy-to-use platform
  • A curated content path depending on your business type & goals
  • Behind the scenes and tutorials from 6- and 7-figure business owners
  • … and all the resources you need to take your business to the next level

Have a busy schedule? No worries. Live events are held via Google Meet and then replays are shared with the community afterwards. All of the core training materials are pre-recorded and self-paced and you have access to them immediately.

You will be billed $67 per month as long as you stay in the community. You can cancel at any time through the Skool platform which is easy to navigate and use. Skool also has a mobile app so you can consume content on the go!

NAOMI CLARIFIED HER BRANDING!
naomi

“The Visual Brand Workbook in the Brand Strategy section is a great tool to use as you set up your brand. It is thorough and gives you consistent branding to use in your business. I really wish I had something like this when I was starting out – I have been piecing things together and now trying to establish these things.”

– Naomi Provencal
Etsy Seller

frequently asked questions

Yes! We have members of the community and coaches who sell everything from jewelry, to crochet supplies, to stickers, to digital products. You are welcome and can learn no matter what you sell.

Nope! You can do almost everything with free software and we’ll give the prices for any recommended products as well as free options.

The program is 100% self-paced. You could finish in a couple of months, or maybe even an entire year — it’s completely up to you how long you stay in the community. You retain access as long as you are a member.

Not at all! We give you tech walkthroughs and over-the-shoulder trainings. And we help to eliminate all of the guesswork around finding your next steps in expanding your business.

No worries! You don’t need to have an existing audience to sell to and make money. If you follow everything we teach you in the program regarding SEO, marketing, and keyword research, customers will find your products.

There are no refunds in the program for the first month due to the digital nature of the offering but you can cancel at any time going forward so you are not charged for future months.
