After a very long wait I finally got approved for a merchant account. My site is live and I can accept payments YAY!

The first day my site was put live with all products and accepting payments I got about 63 visitors, every day after I've only got at least 3 visitors a day. The store has been open since April 13th, I know that is a short time. I have a FB page set up and have been advertising through business and personal page, I have twitter set up and working on Instagram today
I think the content on my site is good, I have a blog only one article but writing more.

I need keyword help? Hope its not too late for this, I got so tied up in my merchant stuff. I am waiting before looking into paid ads due to low funds but I am definitely interested.

Here is my site https://www.purplevaporsuite.com
What do you think? What can I do?

    You're in a niche I dont think google or facebook would let you advertise on but that doesnt mean youre limited.

    I suggest you look into media buying. Buy some paid ads especially on adult sites.

    You have to send traffic if you want sells and the quickest way to do it is to pay for it. I see you say your funds are low but i would think you'd have a few hundred around to test.

    For your niche, My best bet would be to hold up a competition on social medias. for example, share this on your facebook for a chance to win this purple vape!

    Such competition has proven effective for such niche. GL!

    You have not followed the HTML heading tags properly while developing your website which is the main reason you can't get up in the search engines even if you are try harder, check some of your pages here including the Home Page to know the fact

  • Is your site optimized for mobile? Google just changed their algorithm to take into consideration which pages are mobile and tablet friendly. Those that aren't are being bumped down in rankings. Could that have been a factor?

    Like the above poster said, make sure your SEO titles and tags are properly done.

    Good luck!

      You site loads very, very slowly for me. Almost gave up on it in fact. I would optimize your images which seems a huge load (your slider seems one of the biggest slow down points).

      As someone else said, your niche will limit you with most advertising so you should look at alternatives such as targeted forums, print ads, perhaps college papers, etc.

        I thought about Etsy, I wonder if they have a prohibited items list? I'll check into it

        Labe, do you think I should remove the slider entirely? how do the other images load? I am using bigcommerce and the images fit...

          Most studies have found sliders are ineffective on ecommerce sites. I definitely think it is too big - your prime, above the fold real estate should hook your customer in and make them want to shop. If your slider does that, great. If not, put something better there that does like a special offer, free shipping notices, etc.
