as a small business owner and maker, i’m always looking for economical ways to get my work out there. i love printing and creating new items, but half of the battle is getting people to see new work and respond to it. being active on social media certainly helps keep my audience and customers up-to-date, but how can one gain new traffic without spending a fortune? etsy has a variety ad options which i am thankful for, but i wanted something more. if you recall, last year i did a tote bag giveaway with Meghan of eat.make.live– that’s how i discovered Passionfruit ads!
it’s pretty great- you can search blogs who need advertisers by region, ad price, theme- whatever suits your needs the best! i’ve only run a handful of ads thus far and have been experimenting with what type of blog yields results, what region, etc. however, the ads i’ve run have definitely turned in to shop views and that’s all i can hope for 🙂
what types of promotion/advertising have you done to boost your small business? what do you think was a win and what was a waste?
