Question Advertise on Etsy or YouTube?

Hi!


To sell my artwork (math-based acrylic paintings and giclee prints), I already set up (1) a website, (2) an Etsy shop, and (3) a YouTube channel. My website links to my Etsy shop. And, my YouTube channel links to my website.


The next step is to promote the website/Etsy shop. I am considering either (1) advertising the shop within Etzy or (2) advertising the channel within YouTube.


Have any of you done either one? Your comments are greatly appreciated.

Re: Advertise on Etsy or YouTube?

I advertise using Etsy's promoted listings very successfully. In my very saturated market, it gets me seen.

It costs me about 7% of the subsequent sale year to date, but I overpriced my bids for a long time and adjusted it recently and am down to just over 5%.

I am very happy with them.

I've never done YouTube.

Re: Advertise on Etsy or YouTube?

You're welcome. It uses their relevancy algorithm so you might want to read up on best practices. I see you don't use all of your tags, for instance.

I see your art as a good gift for engineers and such. Gifts for men are hard to find, you might want to push that.
