How to Promote website & Online Store

Marketing sells. It’s simple logic — you can’t make a sale if no one knows about your products or services. No matter what you sell on the internet today – you need to find customers. That much is certain, but the more creative you are at finding those customers (especially when those methods don’t involve spending any money) the more successful you are likely to be.

Social Media 

Social media plays a big part in marketing today. This is because nearly 80 percent of the population in the United States has a social profile of some kind. It is a great way to engage thousands of potential shoppers almost instantly. It's also a great way to boost the online store's reputation. 

Email Campaigns 

Email is still one of the most cost efficient and easiest forms of marketing on the Internet. It can help engage previous shoppers while keeping the interest of new ones. Email marketing is such an integral part of business success on the Internet. Many organizations such as MailChimp offer services to make this automated.

Blogging

Blogging about the niche of the business is a great way to engage customers. People who visit the blog are already interested in the product and are often more likely to make a purchase. For example, a blog about how to use a specific item you sell in new ways could encourage visits from potential buyers.

Running Affiliate Program 

Some systems will allow you to set up Affiliate Programs. This is when you give others a percentage of sales they help you generate. This is an effective way to engage a wider audience without having to do anything extra aside from sharing the sale. Essentially, this turns fans of your site into marketers to boost your income.

Pay-Per-Click Ads 

A pay-per-click campaign is when you post an advertisement but are not charged anything until someone clicks it. Your advertisement can be displayed 10,000 times and still not cost you a dime until someone visits the site. There are many ways this is implemented ranging from Facebook Ads to Google Adwords.
