Hi Everone,

Question: I have just launched my online store and was wondering if you could advice me on what would be the best way to start advertise it?? I will definitely do fb ads but at the moment my fb page is empty (as I have just created it too) so I don't want to send lots of people to an empty fb page... Have you got any thoughts on how to get the ball rolling??

Thank you everyone in advance for your feedback! xx

Dear Viktorija

Your store looks awesome. Good luck with your new business. My wife had trouble finding stylish maternity clothing, I wish she had those options when she was pregnant :)

In order to promote your store, I recommend that you use Twitter. You can sign up for a service like https://www.twitfox.com/ (we're not affiliated) and they will automatically follow and like the relevant tweets, based on keywords that you choose. Thanks to this automated feature, we have gained more than 500 followers, and a lot of visitors to our website. 

 

By the way, we're a provider of automated customer service solutions. If you need an easy customer service solution, please check out https://apps.shopify.com/livechat24-7 

You can respond to your customers in seconds. And (coming soon) have our smart bot learn from the way you answer every question, and take over your customer service!

Good luck with your new business! I wish my wife had these stylish options when she was pregnant. She was really complaining about it. They're really looking nice :)

I recommend that you use a service such as http://www.twitfox.com (we're not affiliated) to automatically like and follow tweets based on relevant keywords such as 'trimester', 'pregnant', 'baby boy', etc.

Before doing that, don't forget to edit your Twitter profile to include the link to your website, and some tweets about your product, with cool photos!

So, basically, you will be auto-liking tweets such as:

And most of these pregnant women will check out your Tweets, and hopefully visit your store, to buy some cool maternity clothing :)

We love small businesses because they're the driver of our economy. We have saved them 1 million man-hours last year, preventing their customers from the frustration of seeing the ‘we’re offline’ message on their website. That's why Shopify mentioned our app on their official blog as a 'must have for ecommerce companies'
