New Online Store - Looking for Marketing Suggestions

  • Hello everyone,

    I am so glad I found this website!! What a great way for moms in business to connect and support each other.

    I have recently launched an online store. I have been working on this business idea for over a year and now that the site is up and running, I'm looking for suggestions on how to drive traffic to it. Do any of you have any suggestions? I would also appreciate any suggestion of places you advertise online that have worked for you and aren't too pricey. Thanks so much!!

  • Darling site! It's really lovely.

    You might want to take a peek at a facebook page called "Threadless". It's a t-shirt company with a huge facebook presence (and one of the sites that is so good that even the Facebook execs point it out as a model). I'm thinking it might have lots in common with what you are doing.

    I'm constantly learning about search-engine kinds of things. Sooo much to learn!

    I tweeted about your site -- you can find me at @lizziemcg there.

    Let me know if you are interested in getting some Legal ins. (it's the same thing as medical ins)
    You are more than twice as likely to be in court as you are hospitalized. It's not if but when, protect yourself. Ask me about Full Legal Protection - Including Free Will, document review, traffic court, and more. 5 Point Identify Protection included - drivers license, social security, medical, criminal, and financial.

  • Advertising is always a tricky thing, regardless of whether it's online or traditional methods. Start a blog about something to do with babies, fashion, and have links from each site to the other.

    You can also try an ad here at Work It Mom marketplace, like I did with the Knowledgewebb client I handle marketing for. Wish I could share numbers with you, but I don't have a month's worth yet to analyze.

    I appreciate the suggestions people have already posted, if anyone has any more suggestions, would love to hear them. I am currently doing the pay per click advertising and not sure if its very effective. I think I need to tweek the keywords and keep playing around with it.
