    Hi there,
    I'm in need of some advice, I have set up a ecommerce site selling mma/boxing equipment as this is what I do usually face 2 face in clubs and gyms, I decided to expand into selling online even though already knowing it is a highly competitive area etc. Another of the reasons for creating the website was so I could acquire trade accounts with other suppliers to widen my range which has already proven brilliant as I do really well with my face 2 face sales. However I would love to be able to get some traffic to my website and get some sales from it.

    I know there is an absolute wealth of knowledge on this site already and I have spent literally hours trawling through but with the amount of knowledge here I'm really not sure which or what would be the best options for me to apply so I can achieve traffic and sales. So basically if anyone could take the time just to explain best options for me it would be greatly appreciated.

    I have a Facebook page and Twitter which I have just started with a link to my site etc and running a competitions on etc.

    Thanks

    Hi thanks for replying. I can't currently send pm until 15 posts. Do you mean create an ad via facebook? when you have sponsored ad on right hand side advertising your page? My website is selling mixed martial arts and boxing equipment, I use opencart and have a template which i use, i have done my own meta tag, meta descriptions etc and used google keywords to pick out keywords which weren't overly competitive but still had a good number of searches.

    Im looking to increase traffic, page ranking and try get some sales through.

    Thanks

    Hi, While I am not sure what cahoud sent you, you just need to hold this fact in your left hand and NEVER EVER forget it in the IM race: 'Internet Marketing is just the same method or business as offline business; the only difference is you are using the awesome power of the Internet". Imagine how you have been selling to your offline clients; how clients from far away places have been able to contact and buy from you.>>> Just the same way, you can set up your business online. This you can do with proper SEO traffic. Since you seem to have optimized your site a bit for SEO, dedicate a portion of your site to add value to your prospects.Let them have the unique feeling that you have them in mind, and that the paramount thing you want for them is their satisfaction, yeah! it's the way you'd also like to be treated, right?? When you create this impression, getting them to part with their cash to solve more of their problems using advanced techniques will be like slicing butter with a knife. Hope this helps.

    A bit cliché, but why not post ads on classified ads sites. They will bring targeted traffic and hopefully spread the word among their friends.
    Also you can check social networks like facebook, twitter. You already know about facebook and I assume you know twitter as well, but people often miss the fact that twitter is one of the best places to find targeted traffic. Just type the word or term you are looking for and you will get a lot of results, mostly from people who are interested in that.
    Pinterest although dominated by females I think that it will be a good source of traffic in the long run.
    Another great place to get fast results for terms/words you are looking is tumblr.
    The almighty youtube is also one of the best sources. Create a simple video showcasing some of the gear you sell. You might want to look at some posts about youtube to see how to rank your videos.
    That's just a few which should help you get started. There are plenty more, but it's 2AM where I am and I'm really sleepy, so I can't really think of anything right now :)

    Edit: Why I was washing my teeth I remembered about yahoo answeres. That's a good place as well. You ask a question and you answer it yourself with a link to your site. You can either ask a friend to answer or you can do it yourself, but you will have to reset your router and clear all your cookies. Look for the exact way around the forum. There was even a thread about yahoo answers today.
