Let me try to share some specific and actionable tips based on my own experiences handling online store:

1. Be found on internet:
- Adwords
- Social media ads

2. Apparel is quite general products, be unique if possible.

3. The first impression of your online store is very important:
- Make sure your site loads fast
- Make sure it has clear and intuitive navigation
- Make sure the live chat is ready to help

4. Product description clarity
- Price
- Discount
- Description of material used, size, etc
- Stock availability
- Expected delivery time

5. Build trust on your website
- Show some testimonials
- Show some real proof of previous transactions
- If you have offline store, tell the location (with pics would be better)
- Show some badges of authority websites will help

Hope it helps

Find ways to keep them coming back to you and update your product line so they have a reason to return. If you have sales, get them to sign up for sale notices. That will give you a way to contact them and invite them back.

You should try some social media outlets with some discount coupons and offers.Social media marketing is the one of the best method for promote online store business.but you have to keep patience and post daily basis with social account and also get intentions of viewers with attractive and viral stuff.

Do not Direct sell your business to viewers because its very annoying.

Here are some basic steps you can take to improve your sales performance, reduce your cost of selling, and ensure your survival. Clarify your mission.

1. Clarify your mission.

Begin by understanding your business niche. What do you do best? Who needs what you do? How do you best approach these prospects? How much are they willing to pay? If these questions are not answered easily, campaign at the top for clarity and vision.

2. Break the mission into specific goals.

Write down the activity goals (calls per day, proposals per month, referrals per call, etc.) that you can control. Set results goals (sales per month, amount per sale, profit per sale, etc.) to measure your progress, and track them closely. Increase your activity and measure the results. Goals focus your attention and energize your action.

3. Sell to customer needs.

Always assume your prospects will buy only what they need. How can you convince them of that need? Emphasize the features of your product or service that reduce costs and solve problems for the customer. Sometimes you can reposition your wares. For example, you sold wool uniforms for their look and feel; now stress wool's durability and lasting value. Be creative in your sales and marketing.

4. Create and maintain favorable attention.

Effective marketing, referrals, strong sales skills, and strategic questions are the keys to creating favorable attention. Diligent follow-through and above-and-beyond customer service are the keys to maintaining it.
