I have recently started advertising some of my pieces on a new ad site called Own the Hour. They allow etsians to purchase one hour blocks of ad space on their site for 50 cents each. (yes, that's 50 CENTS!) You add the link to one of your listings...one per hour slot and they do the rest!

The OwnTheHour FAQ section states that they advertise on Facebook, Google, Twitter and other sites .
I think this could be a great tool, as long as they are reaching our target markets.

I can neither confirm nor deny that I've had sales generated from this site at this point, I'm not even sure how to tell on etsy!
Until I have a way to gauge the effectiveness of the site, I will happily continue advertising Simply Willow earthy romance and Victorian inspired jewelry....one hour at a time.

I like to price point. So far, each time I advertise, there isn't even an increase in views. I am trying different times and different days before I call it quits *smiles* Can't beat 50 cents here and there!!!

I have been using OTH too,lots of views but no sales, good luck, you have some lovely pieces!

Are you checking your stats while you are on there? See what your views are on a site like Majaba, just before being posted on OTH then check views during and right after. That should give you some indication of it's value.

I've heard some mix reviews... from what I read it's resulted in more views and hearts not sure about sales... I love how your blog and jewelry has this muted radiance... =D
