Why you shouldn't be paying for Ads on Etsy

Most small business owners think that paying a few dollars on Etsy ads per day will help them get MORE sales on Etsy...

Maybe you’ve been going back and forth with your keywords, titles and tags on Etsy and no matter what you try, your sales STILL aren’t where you want them to be. Maybe it feels like you’ve tried everything you can think of, so you decide to pay a few dollars on Etsy ads to see if that will bring in any sales… And all you hear is crickets

The truth is, paying for ads on listings that AREN'T attracting orders in the first place, won't fix your sales problem!


  • What ads are used for and WHEN they actually make sense in your business
  • The 5 different phases of running a business so you can determine exactly where you are at in your business at this point in time
  • What it means to be a small business owner and how we should view problems

Clear & effective communication!

Great podcast from Monica Little! She talks about the power of integrity, changing your mind-set to get stuff done and being accountable (both personally & professionally). The podcast is geared towards small business owners, but really so much of what Monica explains can be applied to various parts of anyone's life. She articulates so accurately many of the thoughts I have about the challenges of being a small business owner. It's reassuring & comforting to hear Monica break it all down in a comprehensive way in order to overcome the struggles. My favorite take-aways were how she explained that believing in yourself = FREEDOM and "how you do one thing is how you do everything".

I’m Learning So Much!

I love listening to Monica’s podcast as a handmade small business owner! She offers so many tangible tips within her episodes that have helped me to believe in and grow my small business. Episode 2 was very helpful as she discusses the power of integrity and using a habit tracker. I loved this concept and will begin to use one. I can relate to so many of the stories she tells about running her own handmade business. Thank you Monica for all of these episodes! I cannot wait to listen to more.
