Strategy #6 - Use Email Lists
A listserver allows you to capture emails so that you can build an email list. This will allow you can send to entire list with just one email message or newsletter. A subscribed list is where users subscribe freely to your list. This is perfect for sales updates or a newsletter, or just wishing everyone happy holidays.
Strategy #7 - Get Found in Search Engines!
Unless you are in top 20 of search engine listings you probably won't be found by 90% of those using search engine. By creating an additional home page that is optimized for your search word and search engine you are submitting it to you will vastly increase your ranking in most search engine.
Strategy #8 - Get Linked!
One of cheapest and best ways for new customers to find your site is through links. Getting other sites to provide a link to your site involves just a few things:
1.Have a graphic button that you can provide other sites with which they can put on their page. This gives them an easy button that can serve to maybe even dress up their site. 2.Create a standard email message that has graphic button attached asking them nicely to put button with link on there site
Strategy #9 - For More Sales Have More Product
Too often shopping sites do not have enough of an inventory to make shopping experience worthwhile for shoppers. The likelihood that anyone actually buys something is directly proportional to number of items with all things being equal. You have to catch customers with something they want to buy.

You can make everyone a paid salesman for your products by setting up yourself with an affiliate program. Affiliate programs are fast becoming one of hottest selling techniques on internet next to auction programs. By creating an affiliate program you make it easy for anyone with a web site to sell your products and receive a commission.
