Due to my lack of online advertising, I have decided to conduct an experiment by placing a few ads each week. I will track my results via Google Analytics and report back on this blog.
If you are an Etsy shop owner, I hope my findings will help you too. If you have ever used any site to advertise, email me or comment on this post with your experiences. I am determined to increase sales and have little to no advertising experience, so all advice is welcome!
Here are the sites I will try this week:
-Craftopolis - I just created and purchased a week long ad for this site. The Craftopolis process was simple and they responded right away. So far, so good...I will let you all know next weekend if it was worth the $15.
This is my Craftopolis ad, it will start running tomorrow, March 14th.
-Craigslist - I assume I will get a lot of spam from this (which is why I link all Craigslist ads to an email I rarely use), but I have read on other blogs that people do get an increase in traffic. An increase in traffic is the first start to an increase in sales.
Wish me luck!
