Since you have a FB page, my suggession would be a lucky draw contest, like "Give away of 10 Dress materials". It should be like to participate, visitors should like the page and share the FB post. So it goes viral and you get a lot of new visitors. Also go for a FB paid program and it can drive a lot of FB likes.

hello all, i'm new to this forum and i am having the same issue here. i am running an ecommerce site selling auto accessories in Canada for about 7 years from now. From 2015 on, our sales dropped significantly and the traffic has also dropped over 30% comparing to 2014. I'm wondering the reason and would like to know ways to drive more sales. Please feel free to provide suggestions to drive more traffic/ sales significantly for an ecommerce site. Thanks for your help!

You can try collecting costumer emails, by giving them a discount.
After that you can contact your prospect and ask why they didn't buy on your site

Hello dear, To get customers on your sites first you need to promoting your site through SEO. Give customers offers and discount. I would suggest you visit some top most e-commerce online shopping portals like Snapdeal.com, Amazon.in, Flipkart.com, Alibaba.com, BatteryBhai.com, Myntra.com, Ebay, Olx or more.

It's good that you have started adwords, but proper implementation is main factor. Adwords setting like proper keywords, site links and most important negative keywords are essential for you. Try to research on visitors coming through ads, as well as your websites structure from the customer point of view.

Default Make your products stand out

You can do various stuff to make them buy from your site.

1. You said clothing business. I believe that Amazon and Flpikart is currently owns this segment. If people are not ready to buy from them, they will then choose Myntra, Jabong, snapdeal etc.

What you can do is in the product page beside your price, you can list the price of the same product (if available) on other sites and a comparison of the price to show that your price is least.

2. To show your genuinity provide the customers free shipping and COD option. This is the only way to increase brand preference, I know its risky.

3. Offer them cashback, discounts and other stuffs.

A very popular is that show them a price, e.g. 4500 INR , offer them discount coupon of say 20% and the price will get down to 3600 INR this will drive them to buy. Make your discount coupons readily available throughout the internet.

4. Offer them a seamless, smooth browsing experience. Parallax scrolling should not be used in India because of its low speed internet connectivity.
