Increasing Traffic to my Shopify store

So most I've had on a daily basis is maybe 30 views/sessions, I use shopify and I sell a variety of items, not necessarily a niche store. I was using it to test different niches and start stores out of that. I have only had maybe a few orders and hard time getting traffic.

I use facebook and google ads (at a bare minimum), pinged my website, tried to generate backlinks for it and even share every product I can on about 6 social media platforms for social media bookmarking.

I've used Instagram (on two accounts) and have a twitter and facebook page. So is there anything I could do to help increase views than I could worry about conversion and making more sales.

    Content marketing will probably gonna help you a lot to generate organic traffic, along with focus on paid advertising on Facebook, it really gonna benefit you a lot.

    Influencer is also a good option, although if you want good amount traffic coming in through influencer, then you need to find out some good influencers who had good amount of audience, although it could be more pricer to do so, keep that in mind.

    I have one simple golden advise to anyone trying to build ecommerce business like Shopify: Never send cold traffic directly to your product. It does not work that and you will waste money. Find a way to warm up your traffic first. Build audience first! Then send traffic the traffic to your Shopify products later.

    #1. Use SEO to increase your site's visibility
    #2. Build customer engagement through content marketing
    #3. Reach your target audience on social media
    #4. Use influencers to get more traffic
    If your site traffic is in the doldrums, ignore sales for now. Focus on building brand awareness and customers will come

    There are three digital marketing campaigns that provide the best results for an E-commerce store

    a) Influencers Marketing

    b) Email Marketing

    c) Facebook PPC campaign

    Do not pitch or promote your products in blog comments, forums, etc. It will diminish your brand value.

  • It's never been easier for e-commerce entrepreneurs to set up an online store.
    Platforms such as Shopify offer everything a new seller needs to get their business up and running in minutes, without the need for serious web design or coding skills.

    But if you build it, will they come? Probably not--unless you're working to build brand awareness, your business is as good as invisible. There are a lot of eCommerce experts suggests best strategies can help you to increase the traffic.

    Check for your product related niche on Reddit. There would definitely be people willing to buy.

    Maybe even try Youtube commenting on specific niche related videos. Like comment on 10-20 or even 30 videos the minute they come out.

    There are alot of areas i can tell you to try as most have already suggested here but that will be trial and error and in that case you may loose some money before you pick up and i dont know your budget. Generating traffic and making sales to give you profit are 2 different things though one leads to the other but you need skills in these 2 areas. Do not try so many platforms but choose one and learn alot and make it work before trying the another platform

    You have multiple products on your website, it a little bit difficult to optimize the main home page, but you can optimize by categories

    Hello, Jared.
    I've got these tips that may help you. Some of them can be obvious, but still...:
    1. Competitive analysis. Compare what you do and what your close competitors do, what are their marketing and ad strategy. What about their site?
    2. Speaking of the site, it should have:
    * great website navigation, and search options.
    * be fast, perform well.
    * have a modern design and high-quality images.
    * be mobile-friendly (must-have!).
    * security is highly important, especially for newcomers in e-commerce.
    * you can ask marketers for help in order to build the right marketing strategy. If you can't do it now,- watch your competitors.
    * ask your friends, relatives, other people about your site. They can share awesome ideas.
    * write a blog sharing relevant information with your customers.
    * selling on social media, use hashtags, advertising.
    Good luck with your business)
