    Hey guys, I work for an online adult retailer in Australia and we are trying to figure out some innovative ways to make more sales and increase the average spend. We are limited to the number of people we can sell to due to being in Australia. We cannot ship over seas because Australia post is incredibly shit and postage is to expensive for us to have a competitive edge. We have about 3 000 products in stock, most of which are high quality products. We try not to stock too many of the cheap Chinese products because people just don't like them.

    The website gets around 250 UV/day after a drop off due to a huge fuck up by someone in charge. We have a PBN that I have been working on for several months. Due to our small team this has been slow which I don't mind because it is really high quality. We are using social media, but social media isn't massive for sex toys and its really hard to get targeted followers so we don't spend much time on it.

    We have a budget that can be used for things that will bring in sales so if you have a suggestion that costs $$ please do not hesitate to contribute. Stupid/funny suggestions are very much appreciated for the giggles but I would also like some serious suggestions.

    Cheers

    There's pof, you can do some split tests with it. Traffic comes pretty cheap in there, plus you can think smart about a simple ad... without showing too much and start promotion in fb and other websites (example, hot female as an image.. "Click LIKE if you want to date this girl" )

    I provided a lot of value just in here, be creative and it's better to read some other ppc strategies people tend to use (it will help you improve ctr).

    Thank you. I will checkout POF in the morning. As for FB, we cannot use paid advertising because its adult content. Our page has been marked and as soon as we try to boost a post it gets denied.

    Clearly someone is going to mention blow up sheep - so it may as well be me :)

    I will also have a think about some serious ideas too though

    haha I was surprised when I realised that this stuff doesn't sell. I guess the market just got saturated and the joke became less funny. Plus, we are Australian and its the Kiwis that love sheep.

    I think blow up sheep are big sellers everywhere else but the Antipodes

    I do have a marketing idea for you, but rather than mention it in public and risk someone else using it, if you Skype me I'll run it past you.

    I'm in the UK.

    I am usually asleep by 10.30 pm but I'm an early riser.

    If you add me on Skype we can chat at some point tomorrow (Tuesday) when we are both online.

    How about advertising on dating/ relationship advice sites, together with an opt-in form on a website you provide tips and guides on relationships so you could email market as well? Facebook and related social media sites could also be used in a different way to direct visitors to your website.
