    Hey Puffy,

    I seen your concept before many of times, the last one I seen the person was advertising heavily on ProjectWonderful.com. You can only buy traffic from certain regions you're interested in shipping too.

    The reason why I remember was that I was competing with them on a few sites, but I never got a conversion rate from those ads and just stopped advertising their all together.

    Welcome to the hardest part of starting up a site, driving traffic and getting sales..

    Nice clean site. I would come up with an online marketing strategy that includes a content plan and identify where your target audience is then market to that audience via social media channels.

    Love the idea, and great website.

    You could target people who are interested in subscription boxes on Facebook with ads.

    This looks like a company that needs to be on Instagram too. You can make use of a lot of pictures with the products that are in your boxes.

    Very nice looking site. There are lots of strategies for driving traffic and implementing them requires TIME. You could go off to places and buy traffic but it will never be as high quality as organic traffic. So in most cases you should focus on creating content that provides VALUE to your target market. Then come up with a strategy to distribute that content on social media, blogs, forums, etc. Over time you will have built an online presence that will resemble that of an organization (your website) with many sources of transportation (back links - Authentic and High Quality through appropriate SEO) in and out of the city. If you're patient and you just focus on creating good content you'll get to a point where none of your competitors will be able to replicate such a following in its entirety.

    I think that you need to concentrate on your current clientele and decide if you can do something better for them and have then satisfied.
    I mean 100% satisfied client will always drive a few new clients to you and you do not need huge amount of traffic in this case.

    That is a really greate website! I really like the design.
    You can get traffic from free or paid sources.
    Free traffic needs usually a lot of time and effort to be built so I would recommend using paid traffic sources like Google AdWords or Facebook Ads! These can get you really fast results if you know how to use them.
    I hope that helps :)

    I really like your website, it's not even a website, it's more of a single landing page and that's great! I love the concept, I think it's a good niche.
    Twitter and Facebook are awesome picks, you can get affordable ads from there. I think this video will help you, I swear this isn't spam, but I think you both follow the same business model. Hope you check it out :)

    You just went live without doing a market research? I suggest you should start from scratch.
    Marketing research is not an option it's a must.

    Ok. The design needs a revamp. Your site has a blog like layout, that won't work. If you need a redesign / hosting, do ping me.

    Hi @PuffyBlog your site is OK, but some suggestions if you like.
    1. As user scroll the page down, your "Welcome to Trendingbox your brand new subscription directory!" goes off. Try to fix it somehow so even when user scrolls down your "Welcome....." text is clearly visible.

    2. At the end of each post your have placed ( ... ), make these dots clickable like of those "READ MORE" type.

    Thanks!
