    One word of advice: get SOCIAL!
    Create a Facebook page, a Twitter account... and engage your potential customers!

    Then, redirect them towards your site.

      YES!

      If had only done this to start with in some of the niches I had. I would have been the king of it by now!

    Hi
    I would do social media and also blog commenting. Make yourself an expert in your niche and leave useful helpful comments linking back to your site. Always provide your readers whichever option you choose to use with value.

    first you should get some backlinks to your website, you can write some articles and submit them to free articles directories, such as ezinearticles.com, goarticles.com, enarticles.net ... Backlinks is one of the most important factors to promote your website and get higher positions in google

    I am a newbie on internet marketing like you (though have founded my 1st business 12 years ago)

    I always seek for an answer on how to market a website, but most people gave almost same answers, which I don't quite like to be absolute frank. Don't get me wrong, these are the fairest and most honest answers, but lack of the sparkling effect which I'm aftering.

    If there's only I thing I learned all these years of doing business and seeing all the ups and downs around me . that is - don't become a slave by sacrificing too much for your time "in" a business, rather, target the best business model, or a better (than most) model, then work "on" the business model and improvise on it. It's actually not much difference than leaping to B from S quadrant as described by Robert Kiyosaki in his ESBI model.

    Don't get me wrong, hardworking is good. But it's not the ultimate answer I am (or you are) looking for. So Andyhenry's advice of SEO seems more like a business model in long run, but for best effect in short term, engaging could be the best way of all. And most good ecommerce sites don't run on wordpress unless you're doing blogging or sharing informational products.

    If you could link to more pages on this forum where these tips and advice are given, that would be greatly appreciated. This thread is a great reminder.

  • Try to make it social, opening a Facebook page, a Google + page, a Twitter account and a Pinterest account. Share your products and their images, but especially your method to deal with customers.

    Try also to share special coupons only for who likes your FB page, or the same with Twitter. Or make a gift to the first 20 who make an order through your site.
    For example give free shipping to first 20, or give a branding free item, like a custom keychain, custom badge and so on.

    This is the best way ever.

    Otherwise read the traffic best posts here on Warrior Forum and you will learn the best!

    See you soon,

    I offer free coaching to people just starting out. The first module is all about YOU. What makes you tick? What do you like (besides money)? What are your passions? What do you like to do? Can you write? Can you build links? Do you get along with people? etc etc

    This is the cornerstone of marketing: CORE COMPETENCIES. Someone can give you a marketing swiss army knife but if you have no clue and don't have the temperament for it, you're wasting your time.

    I help people find their inner core marketing skills. Anyway, if you or anyone need help, just let me know. I am not going to baby you. You have to work to build your site/program up. That's what a coach does-help you help yourself up. Not do stuff for you. Big difference. My advice/coaching is free although I am not always at WaFo.

    Like what is mentioned, facebook, twitter, social bookmarking, blog commenting, forum participation, SEO, keywords, backlink and many more.

    For me, I also install the Google Analytics to track where my traffic comes from. Its free.

    You need SEO, both on-page and off-Page.

    Are you using All-in-one-SEO-pack, or a similar plugin, and using it correctly (to add meta tags etc.)?

    For off-page SEO, you need to create a wide variety of DIFFERENT types of back-links, so it looks as natural as possible to Google.

    Hope this helps

    For ecomomerce site, I prefer to use PPC to get the traffic.

    Unlike SEO, you could get traffic and make sales in short time with PPC. For PPC traffic, you could try Adwords Display Network (the banner ads). The quality is the same with the Search Network, but with price much cheaper.
