Default Re: Increasing Sales and Unique Visitor Count

Don't just rely solely on social media. You need to also "get out there" and promote your brand. Markets, fetes, fairs, flyers, business cards etc. Go door knocking!
Social media is there to socialise. Its like being in a pub and talking to your mates about your favourite subject. At the moment, your FB page reads like a lecture rather than a chat. Up the activity on your page. Offer discounts and special offers. Do a FB advertisement for a week. I did an ad for my printed acrylic nails with a limjit of $10 per day and in a week I've got 90 likes, a social reach of over 100,000 people and two serious enquiries. No sales yet, but I'm not expecting sales from my FB site. What I am expecting is to get my name out there to as many people as possible. If you want an example of socialising on FB visit my page Jen's Digital Nails and see what I do.
If you seriously want to pursue this, you need to read up on everything you can about marketing techniques. One of the best books I've ever read about the subject is called "Buying Trance". Can't remember the author, but it is an excellent book.
Best of luck
