    Depends on what you are selling!

    What products/services do you sell?

        The quickest way is through Google Ads.

        Promote one product that is trending on Google.

        Ensure your site loads quickly or do it through an app.

            Really like the website but a couple if things to consider:

            1) The logo needs changing
            2) Have products on Instagram
            3) Utilise Google for Business

            If you help setting up the above let me know.

            Don't forget Pinterest too. Use all the major social media platforms. You can share coupons, sales info, etc. If you have a really good picture, you could post it to Pinterest, then use Stumbleupon and give it a thumbs up. Your picture will get traffic, then when they click on it the link will take them to your site.

            Yeah, the logo needs serious work. You could probably pay a small amount on Fiverr and get a really professional logo, or those fixed at least.

            Flores I checked your site, like it but there is a need to changing. Firstly try to resolve your loading speed. You can use woorank, to analyze your site.

    Create something of value, e.g. a PDF about your niche, and offer it for free on your website when people subscribe with their email. Then blast it out in a FB ad for $5 per day for 5 days. You'll should start building a solid emailing list, which you can then retarget.

    Guest posting is one idea Flores.

    If you are selling women's clothes, build friendships with bloggers in the fashion niche. Promote them. Comment on their blogs. All while you practice writing in a Word document daily.

    Guest post invites will come your way, then publish helpful, content-rich guest posts on these blogs to grow your niche and to drive traffic to your blog.

    OK,I would like to suggest you five things to get traffic easily :
    1. Send free samples to Instagram influencers :
    Instagram is quickly becoming one of the most effective marketing
    channels for ecommerce merchants
    2. Reach out to bloggers and press :
    There are other people you can reach out to: bloggers, vloggers, and press. The size of their audience varies, but some of them have large followings, and the process of reaching out to them is quite similar to reaching out to Instagram influencers.
    3. Get friends and family to share :
    4. Pro-actively engage on Twitter :
    You don’t need to start selling products before you engage with people on Twitter. There are a lot of ways to get on peoples’ radars as a cool new store
    5. Write a blog post featuring people with audiences and send it to them
    Our final suggested tactic for getting traffic goes back to reaching out and connecting to people with big audiences, and bloggers in particular.
    Conclusion:
    A store only gets launched once, and you won’t again have an easy excuse to reach out to a lot of people. So do everything you can to get traffic and convert them into customers

    The fast-way to get huge traffic for your e-commerce is:
    1. Using Google Adwords to get traffic base-on beauty & fashion keywords.
    2. Using Facebook Ads to get awareness, so make it 2 or 3 adset: 1 for impression, 1 again for click and 1 again for instagram promote. Don't make it become one ads, it is for your ads measure.
    3. Do the Search Engine Optimization for long-terms traffic, even you're already using Google Ads or Facebook Ads.
    4. Reach out to Beauty & Fashion Blogger, so they can help you to promote your e-commerce.
    5. Consistent write a blog post with relevan content about Fashion & Beauty.

    But before you do 5 point, you need to do one thing: Change the logo become more good looking as Fashion Ecommerce.

    Good luck!

    SEO is the best way to get traffic.
    You can also try PPC, but it's expensive.
    Alternatively, you can try bulk mailing if you have the data of online shoppers.

    Google Ads, Pinterest, Instagram. But for Instagram, you will need better photos. YouTube videos too. Again, for YouTube, the visual content has to really be on point and storytelling is a must. Facebook could be utilized, but to sell to that traffic you need more impulse type products.

    Design a much better logo. Yours sucks.

    What no one touched upon and I didn't in my last post is that your site, like thousands of other sites, is just a generic website with pictures trying to sell products. You have to get yourself noticed from the pack. I guess you can say you have to think outside the box.

    I think for anyone to sell, they need to get the consumer to know and trust them. Basically, they have to give someone a reason to shop at their site. I think the only type of selling where this is not really needed is impulse products. Then, I think the customer buys on emotion.

    Maybe, create and promote a brand. That is what you can do with social media. You must introduce yourself and present your wares in such a way that people feel comfortable buying from you and especially noticing you. You have to rise up and out of the noise.

    In all honesty, your site is no different from many of the generic clothing Shopify sites I see. Who are you? What makes your site special? Why would a customer come and buy from you without knowing you and your store? What are you offering that is different from everyone else? Why should they not just go to Amazon or a similar big site. I don't think people only buy on price, especially if they don't know you. I don't. If you were a customer, would you buy from your site?

    Now, be honest and then solve these questions. Then, maybe you can find and keep the customers.

    For promoting women's clothing you may want to use Pinterest as the majority of Pinterest users are women.

    I would suggest that you run a few polls surveys so that you can gather feedback.

    Do you have a content strategy in place as yet to attract prospects ?

    It's just a matter of time. You need comprehensive approach:
    - SEO (content, technical issues, URLs, innerlinking etc.);
    - marketing (service, selling points, prices, offers, content);
    - social networks (you need accurate set goals, because resources are limited, content).
