Online Marketing/please advice
My name is Stella. I will be grateful if you answer few queries of mine. I have learnt a lot about online selling and marketing through internet. If have collected a lot of articles and e-books to gain some knowledge about the same. Then I started a blog in wordpress named " learn English online". I posted few articles. Also I used Facebook and twitter to get traffic.
Now the problem is that I am not getting any traffic. No one is reading my posts. It has been 6 months since I started blogging. I am aware of SEO terms and tools. I used it to some extent. Could you please tell me what should I do now. How can I get more traffic?
Actually I have planned to start an online store. But since it involves financial investment, so I decided to test the concept of online selling by using blogging first. But unfortunately its not yielding any results.
Could it be that I stay in India and here the concept of online selling and blogging has not gained much momentum so that's why iam not seeing results.
