How to Run a Facebook ad for an Etsy Shop

Posted by Damian Roberti on

If you have an Etsy shop and you're looking for a way to promote it on Facebook but you're not really familiar with how to boost an actual listing or create an ad for Facebook, I'm gon na show you step-by-step right here on the computer exactly how you can run one. And we're going to hop into that right now. There's a couple, about three steps to what I'm about to do. When it comes to food, it's a little different than if you were just selling some USB drives. So what you want to do is pull up your listing on Etsy.

Now, this specific video is going to be about Etsy and promoting on Facebook and Pinterest. And I'm going to show you in a separate video exactly how you can promote your Etsy shop by promoting a pin. If you don't have a specific Facebook page set up for your food business or even your own Etsy shop, you need to create a Facebook page. I've been on Etsy since 2011, and I've sold over $100,000 worth of products. I'll actually do another video explaining how you can really, really easily and simplistically set up a page and start promoting your products.

When you hashtag certain catchphrases or certain groups of words, you'll get a lot of exposure as well. When I do promotions, if I do any Facebook ads, they're actually on there. So here it is, let me go down. There we go. Here is our page.

So now you can see it's on Etsy, right? If you're going to sell products online, be aware of the states that you sell to the most. I actually have the most chocolate pretzel rods sold in New Jersey. Men don't really click on a lot of the links, so I'm not going to waste my time trying to target men for certain food products. California, Florida, New Jersey, and New York are the four states that I get the most business from.

The more precise you are about who you're targeting, the more chances are you're going to get engagement and then sell product. So how do we narrow that down? If you're just starting out, you need to run a few ads to get some of the information. Damian: So I don't want the ad to go in so many directions that it's not associated with what I'm selling. He says he doesn't want to reach out to 40 million people because it doesn't mean they're going to buy it.

How much do you want to learn in five days? How many people is that actually reaching? 1200 to 3500 people a day. Now, if you're doing this for the first and second, the first two times, five to seven days is good. You don't need to do it for 10 days, two weeks, or 30 days.

If I sell a thousand of these and I'm reaching 3500 people a day for six days, I just made $29,000, 29 grand and I spent $25 to get those people, right. On a low end if I don't do that and I get 500 of those people then let's see that's 1500, that's about yeah, 15 grand, I guess that would be. So that's how it works, very simple, and then just hit boost. You can promote your Etsy shop on Facebook for just a fraction of what you could spend anywhere else.

How to Start a Spice Business from Home

Posted by Damian Roberti on

Some of the sites that I'm going to cover are going to offer free shipping and others don't. We're also going to go over some of the pros and cons of dealing with Alibaba, which is a great place to get spices from. If you can get free shipping, that's even better. Most of these spices are going to be best when you purchase them at about a five, 10 or 25 pound price point. Cardamon, cardamon is also one of the super unique spices that this website has.

Many of them may offer pretty good pricing for one pound. When you get to the 10 pound point, you're looking at about $5 a pound. The next one is Spiceology (Spiceology.com). They have a variety of spices that are set in either 12 ounce or 64 ounce containers. When it comes to spices, though, you can buy them in bulk, however big you want, and put your own label on it.

Webstaurant.com has some amazing spices that they offer. You can get 15 pounds of cinnamon sticks or 25 pounds of black peppercorns. Prices on these will vary depending on the type of spices you're looking to get. So next up, So now, Alibaba.com. If you want to start a spice business, you will need a large quantity of spice bottles and containers.

Alibaba is one of the better sites for bulk spices, in my opinion, that you can get brought in from outside the US. You can pick out any particular type of spice that you're looking for. Some suppliers are within the US as well. If you're just starting out, Alibaba.com offers great bulk pricing on spices. You can get a five-pound bag of spices for about nine and a change a pound.

Next up, Nuts.com is a candy and snack business that also sells spices. If you're not in the business of making your own spices, you can resell them on sites like foodservicedicedicedirect.com and myspicer.com. You can buy a jar of Toni Chacheres, which is roughly equivalent to a 12-pack of spices, and sell it for about $2 and change. If you want to get into the reselling business, then you can purchase these products in bulk and sell them on E-bay or Amazon. You can buy individual spices and blend your own, or you can buy pre-made blends and simply put your name on them to save time.

Monterey Bay Spice Company has some really high quality spices on this website. Mount Hope Wholesale has spices in our blends as well. The only thing is that their pricing is a little bit on the higher side, in my opinion, for the product. But My Spice Sage is another great one as well. This is a great website because of the price point, but also because the selection is huge.

You can put this in a half-pound box and charge about 10 bucks a pound or 10 bucks for eight ounces. If you want to start an online spice business, if you want to sell spices on Amazon, you want to sell spices on eBay or Etsy, check them out as well.
