    Hello everyone, happy new year btw! Lets do this year right and make more money then we ever have!

    Now on to the point of this thread...

    I am working with a partner on a Local Vape store and i need some more ideas to grow it locally as much as i can. I figure why not see what crazy smart/simple ideas that BHW had to offer!

    This is a LOCAL shop and we have plans to grow with numbers all across our state.

    So Far

    - I will make a SEO optimized website
    - Rank it locally
    - Rank it using Google Listings
    - FB, Instagram promotion
    - Maybe some FB advertising if funds are available.

    Besides that what else could i do to really amp up traffic to our store locally?

    Thank you for reading this far and i really appreciate your help!

    If its a local shop, then why not make some flyers and distribute them across the neighborhood and the area?

    Or better yet, near colleges and dorms...

    Organize a free rewards game on FB, and use a viral plugin to make it go live. Before that, make some local targeted ads to gain some clients. Once you gain a good amount of clients organize more games, give loyalty rewards, and remind them of any promotion you are running.

    Needless to say train your staff to be as professional as they could be. Cashiers should be asking whether everything was ok, when the clients are paying for what they are buying, etc. Things like this will show great customer care and support, which might have a possitive effect.

    Make sure your shop is having a BIG NASTY Call To Action element. Just like in online websites, we use arrows, pointers, fonts/underline, etc. for Call To action - Perhaps get a HUGE arrow point to your shop. Be creative with this, you want something HUGE, and perhaps unusual to work as an attention grabber for you. If you put some drama on it, and use something really unusual that is totally unrelated to your shop, I guess it will have a great effect. Unrelated things are making people laugh.

    Remember the office of Saul Goodman from Breaking bad? This is a CTA ellement.

    Do some social bookmarkings on top sites like Digg, Stumbleupon, Reddit etc. Bookmarking will surely help you to attract more traffic. Spreading flyer is also a good option.

    Make them an offer they can't refuse!

    i.e Try our Vapor for Free - just enter your address and CC details (to confirm you are over 18) and we will personally deliver your free vapor the same day (if you order before 15) or something.

    Try to find local hosting if you can. Hosting your website locally will make it more relevant and in return
    it will be easier to rank the site locally.
