Vehicles are very, very different than most of the products your listeners will be selling. Also the marketing and amount of PR work that goes into them is on a much larger scale. It’s not a good comparison for an ecommerce discussion.

If you are dropping $35k on a car, yeah there’s going to be more money spent on getting you to buy it. :)

Love this podcast. Thanks for sharing the facebook ads experience. My niche is more like cuttingboard.com, high priced luxury items. Can Grant share some tips on how he drives traffic to his site? Is it SEO or google shopping or facebook ads? Maybe another episode on more luxury items?

Thanks Eve. I’ll see if we can’t work that into one of our future podcasts. Thanks for listening! Luxury items is definitely a very different realm.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
