eCrater Sellers Can Get Traffic and Earn with Google AdSense
By: Julia Wilkinson
| I hadn't been on eCrater for a while so I caught up with founder Dimitar Slavov to see what was new. Slavov said he'd like to remind sellers to link their AdSense account with their eCRATER store so that they get more traffic from Google Shopping. (There are a few caveats, like you have to have at least 5 active products, so check the details).|
Another thing that's new is they recently launched a Facebook app "that allows our merchants to gain Facebook fans directly from their stores. They can also post their store items to their store pages," said Slavov.
Why wouldn't an eCrater seller want to potentially make more money and get more traffic by not taking advantage of these features? I couldn't think of a reason, other than simply inertia, and finding the time in the super busy task-filled days we all seem to have now.
What I like about eCrater is both its intimate environment, and also that when you create a presence on there, you're not just an online seller, but you essentially have a web store. This enables you to do nifty things like actually make money from the ads that run on your store (with the aforementioned Google AdSense), rather than the owning entity doing all the earning.
I've just started to build an eCrater store, so I'm new to the environment. But while eCrater certainly does not get the massive traffic of an eBay, I like that it's free, you can earn AdSense money, and also that Google Wallet is available as a payment option.
Do you shop, or sell, on eCrater, and what do you like (or not) about the marketplace? Post a comment here!
