Social media you can leverage as much as you can, you can find and you can target the specific customer over there, you can convert your visitor into the customer, you can share maximum post as much as you can, Join group and share and exchange your knowledge, you can sell your product online in social media site that will work for you.

if you want to go with paid marketing then you can choose the Google Adward

Email marketing, you need to make email marketing campaign for your subscriber and fire the email by free tool such as MailChimp, etc.

I agree with Valerie, social media is a great place to start! Just about everything we do nowadays is displayed on the various forms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat...). I suggest creating a profile for your store on each of these platforms. It helps let customers stay up-to-date with the latest on your store, from new items to sales. It also helps give customers an inside look on the process it takes to make your product. It breaks the barrier between creator and customer, and makes it a more personal experience. You can also have an email list on your site, and send out a weekly/bi-weekly/monthly email letting customers know what might be new and what they can look forward to in the future.

I think, there is no any tricks or tips or method to get the customer, but if you try traditional strategy doesn't work then try something new way to get the customer, email marketing what you send to the users, offers what someone mentioned above, try paid marketing in social channel that will work or not for your business, try some extra odinary way to publish the piece of content in social media that drive the traffic and visitors converts into the customers...
all the best!!

Competitions, particularly those with an incentive to buy or an incentive to visit the location - from there you can lay it on thick and grab their attention with the feel of your store. They might not buy first time round, but from then on they're more likely to associate your other marketing channels with their memory of your business location when they see them.

@Jack Benoit, I never used Etsy, but this is how I'd drive targeted traffic to my website:

1. Find 5 competitors that are exactly where you want to be
2. Relentess copy things that you find interesting about them
3. Brainstorm a couple of ideas to get you there
4. Create a ideal "persona" of people that bought your stuff on Etsy
5. Reach out and ask them where they hang out, why they bought from you and not someone else and what else they'd like to see
6. Go to the places they hang out (specific websites, Facebook groups, etc) and be a part of the community; learn about their pain points and solve them
7. Start collecting email addresses on your website so you can start a conversation with potential customers in the future
8. Focus on selling many times over to the same customer vs finding new ones
9. Make a list of 20-50 websites that are in your niche, but are not your immediate competitors; reach out and ask for them to mentor you. Probably 1 or 2 are going to respond back

A long thread and I see it has been around for a time. It is full of great suggestions:
I concur with Valerie

"For me, posting blogs to social media has worked the best. It just seems to generate interest in things I've already written while linking me to potential customers."

We post excerpt of a Blog post on Social Media driving organic traffic to the website/blog directly and then find in depth engagements with the readers. A recent series of posts has generated over 5,700 comments on site and fantastic conversions.

We believe having YOUR own site as the HUB of you business keeps you in control

SNS for sure, the most popular and most efficient way for the moment so far. now almost everything in social media, if you know about new Apple launch that'd probably be facebook or smth else. If you got a review for a nice restaurant in your area, that'd also be a mean of SNS

I belong to technical forums where I regularly contribute by answering other user's questions and providing "how-to" responses. This approach has helped me attract clients. I've also done some of the social network activities (FB, tweets, etc), but haven't found them to be as effective as contributing to tech forums.

While my business is different than Etsy, I suspect that the social networking activities would be effective, particularly if you are showing how you created whatever it is you're selling on Etsy (assuming you're creating the product(s) you're selling). Videos showing "hands-on" creation of products is something that would interest me.

I prefer, and seem to benefit most, from public speaking events. As a sales coach, people need to first see/hear my content, and decide if they trust, like, and relate to me. It is hard to convey that over a cold call or online marketing (though I do both of those too). I speak at networking groups and other venues for free, and usually get several potential clients that sign up for a free initial coaching session. From there, a % of them convert to paid clients.

The best method is customer reviews, the best service makes a good review. I used the method of social networks, namely instagram. Paid popular integramedica for shop advertising parents.

Direct contact over the phone, then set up a meeting. The physical meeting is always effective in bringing more potential customers.

Being empathetic, open and communicating that you care about the customers needs is the most important way to bring customers in. Social media, cold calls..none of it matters if you don't have that.

Speaking about reaching more customers, I don’t know how much of you keep Latin America in mind for cross-border ecommerce, but some data about Argentina kept my attention in the last few days.

It’s nothing new that the country is going through an economic crisis.

But it is not the crisis that got me surprised: ecommerce has grown around 37% in the country, even with a 40% of inflation rate, according to the latest Webshoppers report.

And then, as a way to make the market more interesting to foreign investments, recently the government has announced significant changes in the Puerta a Puerta process, increasing the chances of Argentinians to buy international goods online, besides of reducing bureaucracy.

I found those news in a portal called LABS, looking for puerta a puerta changes at google.
.
Now, what are your thoughts on it, Argentina worths the effort?
