Etsy launched a new platform to help sellers buy ads on Google to draw traffic to their listings on the Etsy marketplace.
A spokesperson for the company told us, “Etsy Ads unifies the company’s existing tools (Promoted Listings and Google Ads) into one simple, turnkey solution.”
“Sellers can now set one budget, and Etsy will leverage its data insights and marketing expertise to optimize how their dollars are spent across channels,” she said.
Etsy announcement follows:
Introducing the new way to maximize your advertising: Etsy Ads
We’re super excited to introduce our powerful new advertising platform: Etsy Ads. With Etsy Ads, one campaign makes it easy for shoppers to discover your products on both Etsy and Google and make a purchase from your shop. Instead of managing two separate campaigns through Promoted Listings and Google Shopping, you can set a single daily budget and see your advertising performance in one place.
Why’d we make this change? You’ve told us that you want simpler advertising tools. Etsy Ads helps you grow without all the guesswork. We’ll optimize your campaign by using our data insights and expertise, so you get the most visits for your budget.
You’ll be seeing Etsy Ads in your Shop Manager over the next few days. If you’re currently using Promoted Listings or Google Shopping, you’ll get an email from us with more details. Those campaigns will be automatically moved over to Etsy Ads in the next few weeks.
