Hi. It is a wise decision to think about generating traffic before the launch! Generating consumer traffic for a startup can be challenging, but there are several effective apps and strategies you can consider to boost your visibility and attract potential customers. Here are some recommendations:

 

1. Social Media Marketing: Utilize platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest to showcase your apparel, engage with your audience, and build a community around your brand. Use visually appealing content, including high-quality images and videos, along with relevant hashtags to increase your reach.

2. Influencer Collaborations: Partner with relevant social media influencers or bloggers who align with your brand's aesthetic and values. Their endorsement can help introduce your products to their followers, providing valuable exposure and potential customers.

3. Content Marketing: Start a blog on your website and create valuable, informative, or entertaining content related to fashion, styling tips, trends, etc. This can help establish your brand as an authority in the industry and attract organic traffic through search engines.

4. Email Marketing: Collect email addresses from interested visitors to your website and send out regular newsletters featuring new product launches, promotions, and valuable content. This can help you maintain a direct line of communication with potential customers.

5. Search Engine Optimization (SEO): Optimize your website for search engines by using relevant keywords, creating high-quality product descriptions, and obtaining backlinks from reputable sources. This will improve your website's visibility in search engine results and drive organic traffic.

6. Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Advertising: Consider running targeted ads on platforms like Google Ads or social media platforms to reach your desired audience. You can control your budget and target specific demographics, interests, and behaviors.

7. Social Media Advertising: Platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest offer advertising options that allow you to create highly targeted ads based on user demographics and interests. This can be an effective way to reach potential customers.

8. Referral Programs: Implement a referral program that rewards customers for referring friends and family to your store. Word-of-mouth marketing can be powerful, and offering incentives can encourage existing customers to spread the word.

9. Collaborations and Pop-Up Shops: Collaborate with other local businesses or brands to cross-promote each other. Participate in local events or set up pop-up shops to increase your brand's visibility in the community.

10. Mobile Apps and E-commerce Platforms: Utilize e-commerce platforms that offer mobile apps, making it easy for customers to browse and shop on their smartphones. Providing a seamless mobile shopping experience can boost conversions.

Hi InspiredOne,

 

Congratulations on your new store!

 

I would suggest that you optimize your web store for the search engine with SEO (Search Engine Optimization), which is a type of digital marketing technique that offers you long-term results.

 

So, here are recommendations that you should consider:

 

  • Keyword Research: Carry out keyword research for your website using keyword research tools, like Wordtracker, Moz, Semrush, Raven and Linkdez, that are suitable for your business. 
    • Incorporating effective keywords in the website can help the website rank better on the search engine results page (SERP) whenever those keywords are used. 
    • You can add the keywords in meta descriptions, title tags, URLs, product names, product descriptions, and alt text for the images.

 

 

  • Carry Out SEO Audit: SEO Audit can help you ascertain various issues related to SEO on your website and fixing them can help you improve the SEO score of the website, and eventually improve the ranking of the website.
  • Image Optimization:
    • Compress images’ file size to reduce their loading time
    • Add keywords in their file name and alt text to improve the rank of the image on SERP and enhance the visibility of the website on the search engine
    • Ensure to add alt text for images, which helps the search engine and users to understand the context of the images. As search engines cannot see the images, and users may refer to alt text whenever the image takes too long to load.

 

 

  • URL Optimization: 
    • Reduce the length of the URL to allow users to easily share the URL
    • Add a keyword in the URL to improve its rank on SERP

 

 

  • Enable Rich Snippets: Rich Snippets optimizes the website’s snippet on SERP and helps the website stand out on the results page. You can provide additional information about the website and its content on the website’s snippet. You can enable rich snippet and add:
    • Product Markup Snippet
    • FAQs Snippet
    • Review and Rating Snippet
    • Home Page Snippet

 

 

  • Use Google Analytics: Google Analytics provides you with quantifiable data, like conversions, traffic, and orders from different channels; thus, it can assist website owners in making data-driven decisions.
  • Optimize Page Speed: Optimize the page speed, as it is liked by search engine crawlers and users, which helps in ranking better on SERP. You can optimize speed by:
    • Compressing images’ file size
    • Implementing AMP
    • Using GZIP
    • Removing unused JavaScript and CSS
    • Implementing lazy loading

 

 

  • Fix Broken Links: Broken links hamper user experience; thus, identify and fix broken links by redirecting the traffic to the right location. Ensure using 301 redirects, which are permanent redirects, and completely transfer the value of the old URL to the new one.
  • Submit ‘XML’ Sitemap: The ‘XML’ sitemap helps the search engine crawlers to easily navigate the website, and crawl and index all the pages on the website. Thus, ensure submitting the ‘XML’ sitemap to the Google Search Console.
  • Check the ‘Robots.txt’ File: This file helps in giving the command to crawlers to not follow the mentioned pages on the website. However, it is crucial to check this file, as sometimes important webpages could be mentioned in this file with the ‘nofollow’ command; thus, those pages are not indexed by the crawlers.
  • Get an SSL Certificate: An SSL certificate authenticates the website’s identity and makes it secure, which enhances the credibility of the website.
  • Ensure Mobile-friendliness: More than half of the web users are mobile users; thus, to target this audience, you shall ensure that the website is mobile-friendly. 
  • Link Building: Link building can help in enhancing the visibility of the website on search engines. You can get backlinks by:
    • Creating high-quality shareable content
    • Local SEO to get backlinks on local directories
    • Determine competitors’ link-building strategy and identify opportunities of link building
    • Encourage customers to post testimonials on different platforms.

Hope it helps!
