Some Do’s and Don’ts of Running Online Ads for Your Business
1. If you’re selling an offer, don’t send users straight to your home page.
This is the number one reason why online ads fail. Put yourself in the shoes of your customer: you see an ad for a discounted massage. Great! I’ve got my credit card out and I’m ready to buy. But when I click the ad, I’m simply sent to the business’ home page. Wait, where is the offer that I just clicked on? Where can I buy the very thing I wanted?

The best part is that the people that buy from your web store don’t know you’re drop shipping – well, most of the time. I still have to speak to my suppliers about adding a custom label to my orders, but that hasn’t stopped me from selling thousands of dollars worth of...
