How much time should it take to get my first order from my online store?
I launched my online store on 9/16/2017, approx 2 months ago.
So far, I've only had one order. Is this considered normal or is there a problem?
I launched a Facebook page + an Instagram page and I am constantly boosting posts to advertise my products and current promotions.
Can you please help me with this matter?

Thank you in advance.
From what I can tell you need to run more ads!!
It doesn't look like you are running anything on Google and there are only 3 ads on FB..2 of which started 6 days ago.
Boosting posts is the best way to let FB spend your money..grab a course on Udemy on how to run successful campaigns and do it your self..
Once you start getting the traffic you need..then start on page optimizations to convert higher.

Boosting only shows who you are friends with. If you want to reach more people, you need to run ads through your Facebook Business Manager. That way you can target more people! Hope this helps!
I think it really depends on how you market your product online and by mouth. I think the most powerful of marketing is by mouth still because it's different if it comes from real people. Like how my friend told me about where to get online computer games and now I am also sharing them and it's just how the world works I guess.
Facebook and Instagram page actually help. You can also add up Pinterest, Tumbler, and LinkedIn while making sure you are linking your website on this social media profiles. It will boost up your products as well as the business name. I used the same technique now in my company and I'm very glad that it's working. For SEO experts, they call it backlinking. Well, if none of these work, you can ask help from a digital marketing company. They have various options that can help you!
Best of luck,

You've gotten some great advice from other experts here on Business.com.
My point is to tell you to hold on and not quit too early if you don't get sales right away. These days Google is taking longer to rank pages so your SEO will probably kick in later rather than sooner. Read this e-commerce guide: https://best4businesses.com/ultimate-guide-ecommerce-marketing-2018/
My newest site took over 6 months to get my first sale and I almost quit a few times! But a smart mentor of mine told me to keep working and waiting, and now it is doing great.
Please keep working and the sales will come. Good luck.
It depends on your marketing approach. When I was assisting a friend of mine in starting an eCommerce store, we had to wait for approx. 25 days. The problem was we were targeting the customer base but we're not approaching them on the right platform. SEO is definitely an important aspect for the ecomm, but we should have focused on social media platform right from the very beginning.
Hence, I would say there is no right or wrong question to this question. I would ask you to keep some patience and target the right market. Focus on SEO as well as social media marketing. You never know the magic might happen in a day.
For long-term success and a steady flow of leads, SEO is 100% the best way to proceed with your business!
Yes, I would definitely start working on climbing your website up the ranks in Google on search engines.
When you boost posts on Facebook/Instagram, you are basically throwing away money. Try setting up an actual ad campaign where you can choose who sees your ads, when they see them, and how they see them. You can also incorporate a pixel onto the site that gives you more insight as to who is visiting your site and what actions they are taking on your site. Then you can retarget the people who viewed the site but didn't make a purchase.

Hey Serge, I checked out your site and it looks very nice. Although I noticed that you haven't done any SEO on it. I would recommend working that into your marketing budget. That'll help you eventually drive traffic but you should get started on it asap.
