How do I get people to visit my new store and purchase my products
Getting traffic to your store might be a little difficult if you haven’t taken out your time to learn social promotions either free or paid.
But be rest assured that it is very easy also even if you are a new bee to internet marketing. To motivate you! I sold 24 wrist watches worth 13k each on in one week, when I only got the wrist watches from China for as little as 3k . so that was when I was a new bee. So how much do you think am making now? Well story for another day but know I tripled my earnings with the strategy.
If you have a good knowledge on social media influencer sponsored post you are good to go but if you don’t, it actually means paying upcoming popular celebrities little money to advertise your products on there fan pages. This is an unbreakable form of promotion because they get new fan following daily and fans like following the footsteps of there role models.
So after paying them to promote your products you will give them your flutterwave online store product link to post on the feeds,stories and bio. So this is an evergreen strategy. But might be quite expensive for some people so below is another option.
Social media advertising is cool and effective when you learn how to run ads with good conversion rate. This isn’t too easy for beginners but just go to YouTube and watch videos on how to run social media ads and you are good to go…
