    Good evening, friends.

    I don't want to put money into things with falsified hope and a bad track record- so I hope your word could help me here.

    I am in need of multiple services- and information on those services.

    I've started up a new company in the e-commerce area and am interested in ways to bring in some traffic. I've been messing around with FB ads but I want to branch out to several platforms. I've browsed this forum for a long time but I am in need of up-to-date services providing things like SEO, social media tactics (finding influencers, determining prices for sponsorships, etc.), keyword help, and whatever else you guys might want to recommend.

    If you guys could recommend the best services on this site, ones that have given you great ROI, and ones that you have enjoyed because they are truly helpful, please, leave a message here with why you think that is a great service and how it helped you! It would be so so appreciated.

    Feel free to promote your own service, and how that could help me.

    I hope this is okay with the rules of the forum- I kind of just want a discussion on what services have been great to this community over the months/years, and how they have helped. We're all in this together. To make some cash.

    Thanks in advance- looking forward to any responses.

    Building and pushing an e-commerce site is a monster within itself. I think it's one of the hardest online businesses to build successfully. There are so many different ways you can approach the marketing aspect of things.

    But I think the one thing you MUST DO is build a marketing plan. This is the first thing I tell any of my clients. You can't be successful without a plan. You can't be successful if you don't understand your market. What are you selling? Who are your target customers. Before you do anything you have to have an answer to these questions.

    The one thing that people shy away from is CONTENT. They forget that building an online business means that most of your marketing is going to happen through CONTENT.Pushing traffic to your business will be done through targeted content. (I specialize in this)

    Getting the word out about your e commerce business is important and the only real way to do it is through content. There are a few things that I would personally suggest you do when trying to build healthy traffic to your business.

    Build a Blog

    Successful e commerce sites all have blogs. Creating a value driven blog is a must. 80 percent of companies put together some sort of content strategy, and honestly it's the best thing they can do. Content marketing is hard, it's definitely not easy.And most companies employ services to make it happen. Creating content is more than just throwing a blog up, adding content and images. It's about creating content that is highly targeted and offer quality to your customers. It's the thing that will make them click the "buy" button.

    Letting a professional help with your content marketing will allow you to get a understanding of what your keyword acquisition should be. Be sure to work with someone who is not only willing to build a solid content portfolio for you, but are just as willing to show you how to build content properly.

    Promote Products through Video marketing


    People love to see what they are buying. Start creating videos that demonstrate your product. Let people know what they are getting and why they should buy. I would personally self host the videos because they will help your site rank. But using a third party host isn't bad either. Third party hosts allow you to reach more people, and it helps you to save on load time.
    Videos can be considered visual content that will help to not only rank your e commerce site but help people become aware of your products.

    There are so many things that need to be done to get your store in the eyes of customers. But your first step needs to be creating a marketing plan, and then a content strategy. The more content you have, the more you not only begin to rank but you begin to get recognized. I won't dive into the other areas you asked about because I don't have much experience with them. I try to only speak about what I know and what I've done.Just start laying the content foundation, and then you can build from there.

    :)
