Building eCommerce website is a lot more easier than promoting it.

There are many tools to build an eCommerce website and I believe there are some software too, to install. Anyway, how do you promote them? Do you use Google Adwords? Is it worth it? I am not sure what to pick when it comes to advertising something. I haven't signed up for Google Adwords yet but I believe it's pretty expensive.

So, is there a way to promote this without spending too much money?

Facebook helps a lot with promotion but I think the best promotion is word of mouth, get some good sales and at one point they will tell to others to check what you offer.

Now a days social media is key for these kind of business as you will see quality traffic which converts much better and if you're good in Social media than you could save money as it's less expansive or free if you have huge numbers of followers.

For Google Adwords, it is quite handy but for that you need experience to run your campaign otherwise you might see poor ROI.

Its all about social media, and depending on your niche Instagram is the way to go! Ideally you would want to post at least 2 times a day... their is a guide that tells you the best time to post each day.

Yea that is true, each platform, from linkedin, facebook etc has research done on when is the best moment to post, when I worked in the pharma/health field earlier this year, I remember we worked with this part as a Marketing Growth Hacker Specialist and every platform knows when their users are mostly online and spending time scrolling down..

Building things is usually easier than promotions them. Most of the times people spend more money on advertising than on the actual product, in this case an eccomerce website.

I think at the beginning you should try promoting your website directly to people. This means contacting people on social media or forums and recommending them to check out your website. Of course you shouldn't do it by just spamming your website link to everyone, you should somehow bring your website into discussion and then make sure they check it out. Eventually some of them are actually going to start using it and if they enjoyed and were pleased with your service I'm sure they will recommend it to thier friends also.

Social media is your best bet especially Facebook. You can even promote for free in Facebook groups you belong to.
To achieve the best results, create a page for your ecommerce website and run paid ads for it. Facebook ads are cheap and you can set your daily budget to as low as $1 daily.
Easy to integrate with Instagram too.

You could always leverage on the power of social media to promote your store for free. You could create a group or fan page on Facebook and display the best pictures of your products /services. Don't forget to also give a detailed description and benefits of what you are offering.

When you are thinking of promoting your e-commerce website that means it is already in operation. You have a good number of sellers with the array of their products on display on your e-commerce site. One condition of accepting a seller to your site is the regular promotion of their products in social networks and forums. The point is the seller should also promote the e-commerce site.

This kind of unique attention can catch a customer’s eye.
Whether a digital passerby sees you assisting another customer or you’re speaking directly to the shopper in need, engaging with your audience can make your brand more memorable.
Not only can this improve your chances of getting a sale right then and there, but the customer will also come back for more.

There are several paid sites where you can advertise, but I think that if you are starting you can opt for social networks, including facebook, twitter, instagram and linkedin, in the latter I have seen many interesting publications so you should make a very good publication.

I started with a WordPress website then I run Facebook and Instagram ads at different times to drive traffic to my website. You can try this method too
