Hi ,I opened my shop a couple of weeks ago and I have 0 organic traffic. None. If you search for my (quite unique) store name on google it doesnt pick it up at all, in fact it picks up links to my store from other websites but not my actual store.
I have been told by a couple of Marketing people that you are in a google sandpit for at least the first 6 monhts, and then if you want help with SEO or marketing you have to spend over £1500 per month on it which is obviously completely unrealistic for someone like me, and I have no idea if spending that kind of money would bring in enough sales to even cover that.
I have tried doing ads on facebook and instagram and get a few people through but no sales at all. I spent a lot of time trying to make the website appealing and easy to use, and I am pretty sure of the niche and did plenty of research. My instagram account took off fairly well but I dont seem to be able to drive traffic away from instagram to the website.
I am wondering if wordpress would have the same problem? If I have to spend thousands of pounds per month is it better to spend it on a website that you can build from scratch? Would that get more traffic? I'm thinking perhaps web based small businesses are not really able to draw any traffic nowdays and its best to think in terms of selling in the real world instead? My site is www.kirschhome.com
Your store is quite new so it must take a time to get visitors to your site. If you want to get visitors soon, you should try paid ads such as Facebook ads, or Google ads, ... or try a free one but it takes time: SEO. For the details, you can read these guides below:
