    Helping customer to find products on your page is essential to close the sale. And the best way to do this is with an easy-to-find and easy-to-use search function. Utilize every aspect of design to help it stand out: placement, color, cursor focus, and the all-important white space. And make sure to do your own on-site keyword analysis to improve descriptions.

    The two best ways I can think of is to start a blog on your website, targeting longtail keywords. Try to rank the blog articles and link them through to your e-commerce website. You could introduce a widget that displays relevant products at the bottom of each article.

    The other best ways to engage with interested people on social media. Find groups on Facebook and search for relevant people on twitter, especially people who are in the same industry as you, and target their followers.

    Video is doing well right now.

    For your furniture site you can create videos on subjects such as proper care of furniture, furniture refinishing, the value of quality furniture over poorly made, etc.

    Just a few ideas that come immediately to mind. Create a short video, and post it - one each day to YouTube, and other video sites. Do a search for "video submission sites" for places to post your videos.

    Hi, I think the best way for that is for you to have a unique content that would attract and magnet customers into reading and purchasing your products.

    You need to be present and active on social media websites, social bookmarking sites, forums and YouTube. Create your channel on YouTube, optimize videos, share them on your social media and embed them on your website. Make videos short and try to capture people's attention in the first few seconds.

    No matter what you do make sure the traffic you attract is quality targeted traffic. You waste your marketing efforts if the only visitors you get are tire kickers.

    Targeted traffic is the prospect who truly is interested in what you offer, and also looking to buy products related to your niche.

    Hello,

    Also start paid advertising to get instant traffic and sale. In paid advertising target those people only who want to buy product and search related to your niche business.

    Paid traffic is the best method for attracting visitors to your site I think. You do need to research where you buy that traffic from though. There are a lot of so called traffic providers out there who charge you high dollars for clicks, and then turn around & buy clicks to your site for pennies. You can burn through a lot of money if you aren't careful.

    I am fully agree with your answer, whether website has own blog page or different blog site writing relevant blog contents not exactly about your websites products & services but how a particular product can help the customer will get more clicks.Putting questionable type titles like; mentioning tips, how to use, how it can help, top ten stylish, and most important putting call-to-action (buy now ) button is an ideal method of improving sales as well as visitors.

    Hope it will help you,

    Thanks

    There's a huge number of techniques for generating traffic. You can get overwhelmed trying to use too many of them. My advise is to select one way that you feel very comfortable with, study & learn that technique, put it place and get good at using it. Then select another technique to learn, and start using. After you learn a few techniques track the results of each, and specialize in the ones that work best for you, and your niche market.
