This will allow you to sell those products from the website, as well as from your store.
Pay for Advertising on Other Websites
You can also easily promote your business by paying for advertisements on other popular websites. Many businesses will advertise on the sites of popular magazines, like Buzzfeed, Vogue, and Seventeen, as opposed to paying for advertisements in the physical copies of the magazines. You can also seek out content-generating companies that promote other businesses on blogs and websites like The Total Entrepreneurs blog and pay for advertisements on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram.
