Hey guys ! Have dabbled in ecommerce on/off in the past few years but did not succeed. My biggest obstacle is gaining traction/traffic in the beginning. Initially when I started I did some instagram marketing (organic) back when it was still feasible, it gained sales at the beginning but faltered after a while. Closed that website down and tried again on some other products with facebook/instagram ads but it was not profitable.
I'm starting again selling apparels at www.trufflemeister.com (feedback on website appreciated) ! and am wondering what is the best way to gain the initial traffic.
For those of you who have found success in your stores, I would like to humbly feed off your experience.
– What is the best way to gain traffic in the beginning of your journey? Paid or organic ?
As a newbie I find the biggest hurdle is actually having an actionable plan. Resources on the internet is vast but it can be overwhelming sometimes. Do you guys have any good sources/guides that you could link me up to, which has been helpful for you in growing your store ?
A big thank you in advance !
