So… I just opened my Etsy shop back up because I wanted to test out the off site ads. I plan on adding more videos to this course, but obviously I need to actually test this out before I can talk about it. I still prefer Shopify and it is still my main shop, but over the holiday season I want to test out their new off site ads feature and give you guys my thoughts on it in a future lesson!
Have you guys tried this new ads feature? What are your thoughts?
The only problem with their ads feature is that you are competing with everyone else and they take a good chunk of your money. Say someone clicks on a competitor but found you, they still charge the ad fees because you were “found” through ads whether they were yours or not. And if you sell over $10,000 a year, you have no choice but to be in it, which I don’t like.
I started building my Shopify site the last couple weeks. I’m almost done with it, and I’ll be ready to launch. Figuring out traffic will be the hard part.
