    Hello everyone,

    Like the title said I have finished my online store website, now I would like to know what I should do to improve the sales and the costumers?

    I already have a Facebook account and I have published in some walls of friends and already have some promotions.

    Now i'm thinking in create some contestes to promove my store.

    But for example, when i try to search my website on google, i can't find any results, how can i change that?

    For now, i'm looking for free ways to improve the results, because i already invest a lot in the creation of website.

    Thanks

    That statement cannot be fully backed up and substantiated there is a market place for replica goods the key is knowing how to convert in that marketplace - which is possible without the ban hammer coming down on the site!

    My actual providers guarantee me that the goods aren't replicas. But I open this topic for others reasons: to know how to improve the sales and the costumers

    Almost always have to spend money to make money. I would also say adwords is your best starting point, then of course creating backlinks, citations, all the basic seo starting points.

    ^ All good tips. Yes, you do have to spend money to make money, but you want to spend it RIGHT so there's actually a return on whatever you invest.

    PPC is a good idea, so do that on Google and social media, since you're using that too. You said your site isn't showing up in Google? Not only should you submit it to the directory, set up Webmaster Tools and Analytics but you should also connect your online store with Google Shopping or Products, another good way to get more customers.

    What products are you selling? Who is your target audience and what are they doing online? Go there to hang out and establish your brand in a non-spammy way.

    With an online store, you need to balance your efforts between bringing in traffic and also converting traffic. I worked with an ecommerce store that was getting a ton of traffic, but not closing any sales. You wouldn't want that to happen, so keep on eye on Analytics as your traffic spikes to find out what's working (off site and on site) and what isn't.

    What's the difference between backlinks and citations?
