Posting to social media shouldn't be a drag. It can actually be a fun way to drive traffic to your online shop. The more your product shows up in social media feeds, the more “touch points" a potential customer has with the items you are trying to sell. Also, shoppers will see products in their natural environments, and might feel inclined to buy something that their friends (or people they follow) are promoting.
When it comes to generating traffic for your blog, not even search matches the power of social media.
So you’ve built your own website, perhaps your own online store, and your confidence is sky high, you’re feeling like a creative genius! Learning new technology, the art of dragging and dropping and the courageous step of pushing publish on your site takes time, patience and the ability to often times master a new skill. If you’ve made it across that finish line, congrats!
