    I have a business in the health food niche and sell a few products for around $6 - $15 but can't seem to make them profitable with ads. If I do a sale from ads (rarely) it costs more money to pay for the ads than the profit I'd make from the sale; resulting in a loss.

    How can I go about sourcing a new product that would be profitable when using ads like Google, Bing Fb etc.?

    Use either bing ads which has got less competition to decrease expenses or try raising your prices to increase ROI. Or both.

    My product isn't that well known so it's harder to get people to click on my ad and buy. I'm trying to find a new product(s) that will be easier to sell while making a profit.

    I suggest using reddit and seeing what is trending.

    There are two ways to this either you raise your price to accommodate the money spent on ads or you use free promotion tactics.

    You probably need to target your users and region better for improved ROI. Competitors often click on ads just for kicks too. But remember one of the purposes of advertising is not just for the first sale, but customer acquisition, keeping the customer for future purchases.
