    Create a good marketing plan and follow it!
    SEMrush
    Content is crucial if you want to become visible in search engines! In your case it can be product descriptions, product articles and customer testimonials. Sauce it up with social media. I highly recommend to use google+ in 2014. It's just a quick tip, you can find more by browsing the forum.

    It can be hard to kick off, but stay focused and invest time in your marketing plan. Never give up my friend and it will work out for you!

    This is awesome advice.

    It can sound super daunting, because when you're running an eCommerce operation, there's a lot of work and logistics that have to go into just the selling parts of your business.

    What's important to remember, though, is that you're basically the CEO of a tiny little company. Means you've got to be in charge of things like marketing, too. Creating a plan is the best way to make sure that you can stay on track of your marketing goals and requirements, alongside all the demands that come with running your online store(s).

    Hope this helps!

    Live Chat helps you stay engaged with your customers.
    Live Admins JLT is a UAE based company which provides a live chat software called the WebGreeter. Its a multilingual live chat software, so it doesn't matter to them where you are from. They would work with you in your own language.

    1) Improve your site loading speed. It matters most in online businesses. The more speed your site has the double will be your sales.
    2) Design proper landing pages for each of your product/service.
    3) A/B test your landing pages to determine what works and what doesn't.
    4) Deliver what you commit.
    5) Improve your customer support. It should be 24/7.
    6) Your product/service should provide some sort of benefit/value to the customer.

    People may vary based on different countries and languages. But everyone likes to visit the website when it offer some discounts, deals, gifts, rewards, etc. Increase the sales and customers by implementing this idea in your business.

    Invest in email campaigns, ppc (Google, Bing), social (Facebook). Track ROI on all your investment and cut off what is not working well.

    Many websites rank highly in search engines and get lots of traffic but achieve low conversion rates when it comes to making online sales. There are many potential reasons for this, from pricing and product to navigation and security. You could have two websites with the same products at exactly the same price but they would get different amounts of business because of issues such as ease of use and trust.

    Improve your website navigation. To encourage site visitors to purchase from your website it needs to be very well laid-out, clean and clear. If people find your website awkward and cumbersome and can't find what they want, they will go and find it elsewhere and they won't come back.
    User-friendliness is important. You have to keep everything simple, professional and consistent. You must use obvious section names and remind the user where they are in the site. Use a strong call to action to get them to buy.You need to minimize the number of clicks from landing on the home page to reaching the checkout. The whole purchasing process has to be as quick as possible. That means not forcing users to open an account in order to buy something and not having to input lots of unnecessary information.

    Online businesses do not have face-to-face contact with customers so they have to find other ways to convey the fact that they are trustworthy. You should try to get as many accreditations as possible, including association and trade body membership. Join local business groups to show you are part of the local community. Include endorsements,testimonials and case studies from customers on your website.Try to personalise your site as much as possible and feature real people.

    Security is an important part of trust. Always display the payment providers you work with, such as PayPal. And it's good to have a Verified by Visa sign and a VeriSign SSL certificate.

    Honesty and openness are vital. Always be clear about all your costs and delivery prices — no-one likes a shock at the point of purchase. Include full details about delivery. FAQs are a good way to pre-empt customer questions.Think about your target market. You should always remember who you are selling to. If it's a younger market, then they are likely to be web-savvy. But if it's an older group, you have to do everything to make people feel safe. Tailor content to the user.At the same time, you need to track and analyze your website and those of your competitors. Ask customers for feedback, run user surveys, build a database and contact them with relevant information, not spam. Try to establish an on-going process that enables you to find out what your customers like and dislike.

    The word "trick" is not recommended for this statement and it must be the "ways" that effectively increase your online sale. :(
    First, Focus on your targeted audience and study their behaviors to determine the best move to reach them and provide what they need and expected from a particular website. A content that is credible to share and engage with your visitors that can lead to conversions of sales.

    Some customers like to give importance for website content, some like discounts, offers and deals. Boost your customers based on their needs. This will increase the productivity of your online business.
