    Increasing traffic for ecommerce sites are very difficult unless you have a good budget to invest into advertising like facebook ads or google ads.

    I would suggest to use SEO and social networks as free methods to drive traffic to your website.

    Did you try Google Alerts ? Try them, set your products/keywords over there. You will start getting mail with latest links related to them , you will drop your link over there as a comment. You will see the difference.

    You need to ask yourself where does your target audience hangs out online.. From that you can either place ads on such resources or interact with comments, postings (ideally guest posting) etc...

    Can you tell us on which niche you are working , I get a good traffic from social media but that depends upon my product niche .

    Use twitter , pinterest and instagram for getting good converting traffic if you are running Fashion , food or something like store.

    Create A legit account over twitter , upload cover pic and profile pic according to the niche .

    Post few Interesting tweets with your website link ( use goo.gl url shortner so that you track visitors you are getting from the link)

    use # tag to make your website a trend , Follow other users .

    When you create account on Twitter you can follow 2400 users , but after that you have to slower your speed of following .

    Use follow / unfollow method .

    Re-tweet other tweets from big accounts within your niche with # tag of your brand .

    This is slow and steady Process but it will help you a lot.

    Another thing that can help drive some more sales for your eCommerce site is to find forums and websites that are related to the niche that your products are for/in and buy advertising in them.

    In forums you can also make posts to help members and maybe have links to your eCommerce site in your signature if signature links are allowed in a particular forum. People will see your signature when you make posts and this can help drive a little more traffic that might lead to sales. ;)

    Social media promotion should be a real good option. Just try to get some quality and non-spammy marketing going in some appropriate Facebook groups, on Google Plus, Twitter and any other social media website that has active people from your target audience.

    Cheers, Dean.

    What about running some promotions and some sales of your products? You can market them around the internet and let people know about them and maybe get some more sales that way. Everyone loves a good sale!

    You can try to offer discounts or sales promotions to people to help gain more sales. Even if you do not really offer much of a discount many times people will buy things just because they are on sale. Put some text like "Limited Time Offer" in any sales promotions or advertising and that can help as well.

    There are plenty of ways to increase sales for website, however, you should find the way that suits your site, you target market and products.
    For example, did you promote your products on social media like facebook or twitter. Most of our customers come from these channels.
    Furthermore, keep in mind to offer discounts or sales to engage more visitors. You know, everyone loves discount.
