    Ok, so I've been dabbing at im for some time. I finally found a popular niche I want to tackle, its competitive, but it seems good. The problem I'm having is getting traffic, and converting visitors into paying customers (people like the product, but I am not seeing alot of sales). Here is what I have so far:

    - Website with hosting already indexed and over a year old (not an emd) (No SEO has been done or articles yet, but I will write at least 1-2 articles per day).
    - Social media accounts (facebook with around 50 fans, its a few months old)
    - No Youtube or heavy amount of twitter followers as of yet
    - No adwords
    - Rss Feed, but only have submitted a 3 times.
    - Mailing List setup
    -Facebook ads (I tried that for awhile, and even though I found a way to get low ctr, not too many people went to the site).

    Ok, that's what I've have so far. I need to do a complete 180, and start to figure out how to bring the people in. I've been reading on seo so far. Its not exactly a aff. landing page site or anything. Its a site where I sell products people need or want. I don't want to flat out state it, but lets just say "shoes".

    I've been searching through forums and places scraping emails (not alot, but I managed to find around 500 emails of targeted leads). I've had very few sales, but I feel like I could do WAYYY better, and I just got tweetattacks, I know how to make videos, but I dont have a cam, so I probably can make animated banner videos.

    I thought about buying traffic, but I need really targeted traffic (like people only interested in buying what I have and nothing else).

    So anyone with any insightful tips could help?

    If the problem is traffic, you should do some standard backlinking, post some articles and make sure you use your keywords well, submit your RSS Feed to directories.
