    Some tips and ideas to bring traffic to your website.

    1. Your website should have valuable ( unique and informative ) content in it.
    2. Always try to think in users point of view. They probably seeking for more information for what they have come for. So insert few internal links which should navigate to other pages that contains more additional information.

    Thanks for the advices.

    As fas as SEO goes, I am working on it. I am doing stuff such as alt tagging the images I use, trying to post useful in product explanation on pages & using only appropriate meta information. No meta keyword overloading as I understand it might end up killing my rankings instead. I am not aiming to achieve high ranks on any search engine quickly. I genuinely believe and want to grow on the search rankings organically, by regularly updating products and driving social engagement, and not keyword stuffing my pages.

    I have been using Facebook CPM ads over the last 2 days or so. With a very targeted audience of about 260k, I have been able to get approx. 700 visitors, with a cost per website click averaging at about 2 cents, and CPM which averages about $2/1000 impressions. There are two campaigns running, one for page likes, and one for webpage visits. I had to scrap the page likes for a couple of reasons -

    1. It was costing me approx $2/page like even on a custom audience.
    2. It didn't seem like worth the investment since in India fans are hardly engaged on pages of most popular online brands e.g. look at these pages -

    https://www.facebook.com/flipkart - 3 million likes and not even 50 fans have engaged with any of the latest posts. This is India's largest e-retailer.
    https://www.facebook.com/AmazonIN - >3 million likes, low engagement in comparison, better than flipkart though.

    Anyways, the point was, paying FB to make people like my page didn't make any sense to me at this early stage. So I scrapped the like campaign & continued with my Clicks to website, and added a "FB Social Gate" on my home page to get "likes" from the visitors.

    Now the problem is conversions. 2 days later even with a targeted audience, and 700 hits in total, I have ZERO sales. I am running offers such as "get a discount for liking the page" and general discount till next week, to drive up the sales. If I had some sales I could keep reinvesting those funds into ads.

    So that's the story so far. Would really appreciate if you guys can suggest how to drive the sales now.

    Since Facebook is hindering posts from showing up on feeds, it isn't nearly as useful as it used to be. I've all but abandoned my FB pages in favor of Google+. Posting links to Google+ will also get your site indexed faster.

    Well, I can say that conversion is now one of the problems. Over the last 15 hours since I posted I've had additional 300 odd visitors through FB campaign but no sales.

      Something at later stage may be. I am posting offers from my website to the page. Since I've only started off I think linking to external offers at a nascent stage might rebound.
