Just wanted to share about the AD Directory. It's a free (yes, FREE) service started by a fellow Etsian who got tired of paying others to do something that you can easily do yourself!

"I want to encourage and empower Etsy sellers and bloggers to take control of their online businesses. Always read the fine print, and be aware of what these large companies are asking you in return for their services. We are business owners, and we need to be smart about how we market our products and monetize our websites and blogs!"

Why give away your profits to Project Wonderful when we can sell our own ad space and maintain complete control over our blogs and websites?

You can read more about it here: kmtgraphicdesign.blogspot.com/2009/06/faq-about-ad-directory.html

She'll even walk you through the process if you need help! And it doesn't cost you a thing! Thanks kMTgraphicdesign for a great idea!

That's one of the great things about Etsy- there are people here who have great ideas and are so willing to share their expertise! Who knew it was so easy to sell your own ad space? Why are we giving away our profits (and our control over our businesses)?

I WISH it was my blog! It's The great idea of kMTgraphicdesign- a fellow Etsy seller who is also very computer savvy! I think it so great that she's looking for and sharing ways for us to take more control over our businesses! She the one who started the Etsy Mentor Series, too!
