This, just after I posted about endless summers...


I am almost ready to start school again. I feel like my life is spinning a little bit much at the moment, and I am ready to get more organized, and spend more time on my Etsy shop.

I am also considering spending some money on advertising. I feel like I have done the Craig's list thing, Kijiji, I've got ads in Youcraft, I blog, Flickr, I have an I Love Etsy page, Trunkt, and all of this is not getting me anywhere. Has anyone ever done a Facebook ad? I am thinking I might try that first. I am also thinking about the local newspaper. It's just a scary step for me! But as I see my expired listings start to pile up, I have to get more into it, or get out of it.

And the next thing on my "Buy" list is photoshop.

All this, and I have to get school shopping done too! ;)

Have a great day all!

I have tried craigs list and the free advertising, but I have not had any success. I signed up with project wonderful. I have not done any paid ads yet, but I am thinking about it once I increase my inventory. Project wonderful, might be a nice start for you since you only have to invest small amounts of money.

I say go for it! I haven't tried it myself at this point but I might also in the future. :)

Good luck with school and advertising. I have yet to advertise yet, but it may soon be time for me as well.

Thanks for your comments! Hmmm, still not a confirmed result on whether or not paid advertising works! I am pretty sure I will try something out though.
