HI,

 

I opened my store about 5 days ago and so far no sales :(    I paid for a few FB ads and see I have some traffic coming but no sales yet.   Do you know how long on average does it take to start getting sales?  

 

As a start up should I spend most of my time on SEO right now or keep up ads on Facebook?   Also, how many products do you think I need to start getting sales?  I have about 400 uploaded but working on getting more up.

 

Thanks!  Any advice you can help me with I would be very grateful!   My store: http://bentbuys.com

Seems like your store sells everything and has no real way to say it's different from any other store out there that may or may not be doing drop ship. 5 days isn't a long time and if you barely spent any money on Facebook ads....that could be why you have no sales. We generally get all our ecom clients up on Google Shopping as they can see revenue and sales faster then targeting a cold audience on Facebook.

We help ecommerce brands create, manage and scale profitable PPC campaigns across North America, Europe and Australia. We also help with Conversion Rate Optimization: TakeSomeRisk.com

My recommendation is you have do both SEO and Social Media.

 

If you want to invest the SEO or Social Media, you have to hire the specialist for who can rank your website into 1st page of search engine or attract the potential customer from social media to your website store.

It took me about 1 month and 1000$ spent on testing FB Ads to get first sales. Keep trying!
