My friend is deciding to make an online store and was looking for any tips or advice that would help. He wants to bring in traffic , at the same time make money from hosting ads on his site or any other methods that would not distract or hurt his online sales. His site will be coded I believe in flash (it has a really fast loading time even on a slow connection) and he has a mobile version as well with a fast checkout system. If flash is not a good idea for ads, let me know. This was my advice to him, and I posted this thread for anyone to correct me or just add to my advice (as I am not a perfect expert to im) to help rank it really quick and drive traffic. - Use social networks - Create articles that are part of the niche (400-600 words with the keyword(s) he choose a few times in it). - Upload videos of your products - Check out cyberzilla post on keywords lol (thanks cz) - Have a space to host google ads on your site, or even other website banners (if that's possible to do in a flash site). -Have a mailing list for users to subscribe their email. Any successful advice you have would be great! From software, to anything or specific tactics.
