Have you ever considered these tips?
Always be willing to lose money in the short run in order to make money on the long run; However, with that being said, lose money by giving outrageously good benefits to your customers, rather than purchasing "how to make money guides." If you treat your customers well, they will promote you without your asking. This is a very big help to you. Word of mouth is one of the best promotions and get you those return customers.
Participate in some sort of group "give away" event. These usually take place right before Holidays, such as Christmas. If you do not see any being formed, you may want to contact other people in your niche to see if they are interested in pooling products to create a massive giveaway, so that you all can benefit while giving a big present to your current and Future customers. This can be fun.
Use pay per click advertising to market your business. This is one of the quickest and most effective ways to get targeted, low cost traffic. You can do this by opening an account with Google AdWords and testing out advertisements for as little as 1 cent per click until you get the hang of it and are willing to pay more. But do not set your price too high at first so you do not big bill at the end of the month. Practice this first so you do not spend too much at one time.
If you regularly send out "customer support" emails or emails to joint venture partners, you should always put a sales page or opt-in page in all of your emails. While the amount of sales you may get from this is minimal, you will still pick up additional sales that you otherwise never would have seen. This could get you regular customers.
Use some type of tracking system for your website promotional activities. Preferably, you will want to find one that allows you to track visitors on multiple levels – not just on one. For instance, you will want to know who is coming to your site to begin with (and where they came from); And from there, you will want to know how long they stayed on the page and if they made the purchase. When you do this you can target your customers. If you track your activities this will give you a advantage and boost your sales.
