It's never to early to start christmas shopping! It's Christmas in July!

So I Started a Dating Blog...

Yes. I did. I started a blog about dating, and relationships. I'm so excited about it, it's been a lot of fun so far! You can check it out here, and I'd love to hear what you think! I also have a section where you can write to me with a problem or dilemma you are facing, and I will anonymously write my response to you in a blog post! I plan to make it both light hearted and serious. I will offer advice for those of you in a relationship, as well as great tips for you single gals. Once I have more followers I plan to have guest writers from all over the place, including tips and advice from guys. Move aside Dear Abby! Check out Great(ish) Expectations and let me know what you think!

Beginner's Craft Course: Facebook Ads Completed

Ok, so to get you up to speed on my latest venture in advertising, I've put out two ads on Facebook. I created a local one that ran only in targeted cities in Ohio, and another that was international. The ads ran for 11 days. They brought me a total of 132 clicks. Worth it? I think so.

I spent a grand total of $49.18. That's a lot of money, but that's also 132 new people who know about my shop. I also made about $100.00 in sales during this time, so I would say that the risk was worth the benefit on this one. I can't say for sure however, that these sales came from the Facebook ads. I only had one customer take my Paypal survey, and according to that buyer, she found me on etsy.

I am personally willing to pay for visits to my shop once and a while. I probably won't take out another ad until Christmas shopping season though. I think overall I can say with confidence that the Facebook Ads were beneficial to creating awareness of my shop. I'd love to hear what you think! Have you ever, or would you take out an ad on Facebook?
