    Hi All!

    New to this site, was looking around online trying to figure out ways to drive traffic to an online store without jeopardizing my seller accounts. I think the safest bet would be to start a shopify account and then drive traffic to that, but I'm clueless on SEO stuff and could use some helpful tips. Also, anyone know how to go about getting items on google? Can they be directed to Amazon or Ebay or do I need an actual website?


    Thank you! :-*

    You'll have to investigate what other people are doing successfully in your own lane.
    Depending on your products & niche YouTube may work better than picture sharing sites (such as social media sites eg Instagram)
    From my experience social media works best.
    But maybe in your industry SEO is much more lucrative.

    There is no exact answer, you have to learn & try yourself.

    Ha! Yes,
    New to site meaning= I've been snooping around on it off and on for a few years but have never posted. I just had to get my login credentials again as I totally forgot I had an account when I went to sign up. :p. Thanks for the tips, y'all. Has anyone on here had success directing traffic from Instagram or pinterest to their online store? Or success with buyable pins?

    Many of our members have had successes with both social media sites.
    There is a subforum on BHW discussing both platforms, check out the threads in there.
    Don't expect anyone to spoon-feed you, do your homework :)
