Without knowing specifically what you mean by "on page" and "off page" work, it's difficult to make meaningful suggestions. I don't think anyone here is prepared to put together a complete optimization plan for free, so perhaps it would be good to start by identifying specific areas where you feel you need further advice.

There's been a lot of material posted here already with SEO advice. Have you read those threads? If not, I suggest that as a starting place. If you have read them, are there any specific areas about which you have questions? That might help us begin to narrow down what sorts of suggestions would be helpful.

SEO is not an overnight solution. Depending on the market the site is targeting, the level of competition and how realistic the expectations of the site owner, getting traffic via SEO may take months. Depending on how long the site has been in existence and how long you've been working on optimizing it, you may simply need to give it more time.

Beyond that, what else (beyond SEO) is the site doing to bring in more traffic? Organic search should always be the "icing on the cake," not the core of the traffic strategy for any site. In high competition markets, SEO alone may never be enough to bring in sufficient traffic -- and even when it does generate a lot of targeted traffic, that traffic can go away overnight if Google decides to change something. That's a precarious position for a business to be in. For the long-term survival of the business, there must be some sort of backup process for generating traffic in the absence of search traffic.

SEO is all focusing on different aspects on your websites on a continual basis and optimizing it accordingly as torka has mentioned here, its not an overnight task, neither a walk in the park. Its essential for you to have patience, see that your site offers the best user experience and fresh/unique/informative content on a regular basis. This is the key to observing positive results.

Hello Debbie,You need a blog so your information about products can be known to people.Secondly you can opt for webinars,so you can reach globally through prooting your site's vids on social media and other medium.

If your question is only about getting targeted traffic then make sure only SEO work is not enough. You also need to start blogging for your website theme. Create social pages and attract your audience through posting interested and useful content on page. To entertaining your audience you can post HD photos and videos within the content.

And on SEO work query prospective you can track previous threads as torka already told you.
If you have specific query then run a new thread with clear title.
