Which of you have etsy stores? Of those who answered with an enthusiastic “me!”, which of you have tried paid advertising? Where did you advertise and how did it work for you?
I’ve been contemplating using my copious free time to do some experiments in advertising my etsy shop. While I can’t afford a massive campaign, there are places where I could throw up an ad for a day or two for just a few dollars- long enough to see what kind of impact it has on my analytics, and possibly on my sales.
