How to increase your online sales

To increase your sales, you will need a converting website, and a high volume of traffic. To increase your website traffic, there are 2 primary methods:

  1. Advertising

    To increase your website traffic, you can advertise your products or services with search engines, or social media. Advertising allows you to drive traffic quickly to your website, at a certain cost. The disadvantage to advertising is that it can get expensive on the long run.

  2. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
