I just launched my site this week (lovestruck-shop.com) and I need help with generating traffic to my site and just getting it known. I've been mostly posting on Facebook and instagram. I'm getting quite a bit of a following each day on instagram. And I'm looking for a team of people that are experienced in engaging customers and helping me run a successful ad campaign as well as daily posts on my social media accounts. I am on a tight budget so please try to understand that. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Pam! Maggie, a Shopify Partner here :)
I'll be happy to help with social media marketing.
Have a look below how it works:
Your website looks really nice. If you just launched an online store, you're in Validation Phase. It means you still need to find a market for your product. For stores that don't have a huge budget, "niche" is the way to go.
Try to brainstorm ideas for target markets, taking into account interests, location, age, gender, life-moment, etc. Be very specific. Then find places where you can reach them for free, like forums, communities, events, facebook groups, etc.
Don't invest in advertising until you're confident that you found a group of people that is excited to buy from you.
I'm doing a free webinar this Wednesday where we talk about all the steps companies go through, and the tactics and metrics to grow a sustainable business, and not just waste cash in Google or Facebook advertising. I think it would be interesting for you: How to Use Data to Grow Sales to Your Store.
Hope to see you there!
