When it comes to selling on Etsy, you may have noticed that your stuff is getting less attention, less traffic, and maybe just overall LESS.
BOO TO THAT.
So today, I’m going to talk about the best FREE ways to promote your Etsy shop.
And here’s the deal — this year, more people than EVER have been asking me about paid traffic.
You know, promoted listings, Etsy renewals, google and facebook ads — all that crap you throw money at in the hope it will CHANGE EVERYTHING.
But the reality is this:
That shit sounds WAY too good to be true. So it probably is.
So INSTEAD of shelling out hard-earned cash for a couple extra sales here and there…Let’s just put on our “this is bullshit” cap for a minute and evaluate ALL your best options for promoting your Etsy goodies.
Because maybe you shouldn’t be PAYING for promotions after all.
Today I had a question from one of my Coaching Students about promoted listings…and I decided to use her question to create a Six-Minute Makeover video just for you.
