I have an account on bonanza but i'm not subscribed, isthatwhy i'm not selling anything?

I have been selling plenty of my bronze statues on Etsy but nothing on Bonanza and although I have the same listings on both I’m not subscribed to either. Is that because Etsy is better?

I do not subscribe and keep my FVF at 9%. However, I do think that investing in Turbo Traffic for the holidays does help with sales. I do not have a lot of sales on Bonanza, but I did invest in a Turbo Traffic package at the end of November and had a couple of sales this week. Granted that doesn’t set the world on fire, but it is a improvement. It is also important to do shameless self promotion on social media. I have always promoted Bonanza, and do my best to tweet other Bonanza members. But, at the same time, I do have to admit that my enthusiasm has waned the last couple of years because I do feel the Bonanza powers that be could do more in the area of visibility through a bit of quality advertising. That’s my 2 cents for what it’s worth.

Yeah, you would think the Bonz powers would loosen up a bit and throw our items to the internet seas (as if we bought a Turbo) at least for free during this busy time. I mean, Amz gave away free prime at this time last year to gen sales. We sellers need corporate help here. roe

Are you titling your pics before posting your listings? That will get you on Google Shopping – Images, without you having to purchase a membership or opt for higher percentage. Bonanza is not known for it’s traffic, you have to advertise your items yourself, even then sales are really slow here. Not a lot of people know about this site because they don’t advertise themselves. If Bonanza would spend a little on advertising, that would benefit ALL of us.

Bonanza gets very little direct traffic. You either have to advertise your items yourself (drive from social media, etc), or sign up for a higher rate on Google shopping… Even then, it’s pretty slow.

Etsy is different, not necessarily better. They do get more internal traffic, but sellers on Etsy are also complaining of low sales.

Optimize your listings for Google Shopping and promote where you can.

A basic booth is all that is needed, unless you want the extra channels of advertising offered. You may want to get settled in before you worry too much about paid subscriptions.

I just did a search for ‘unique bronze statue sculptures’ on google which is where I usually start out for something I’m looking for to get ideas. Under shopping or image links I see Etsy come up several times but did Not see Bonanza even 1 single time. Makes me wonder, too, if subscribing will help. I just signed up and cannot even link my account to spark lister, which is Provided by Bonanza but yet I could link it to my eBay….? FRUSTRATED already

Each search results differ. Their items are in Google general search and in Google shopping as well. Probably more established store (in this case on Etsy) has a bigger ’weight ’ in G. algorithm.
