  • Tweet about your page and ask other established pages if you can advertise also you should print out some cards and get you and some of you friends together to hand them out at obgyn offices any place where women are. talk about your business at the local community college any place where people will listen.

  • BRAVO! and congrads on your business. Online stores are great but the marketing is tough. Some ideas... all local social events, grocery stores, hospitals, maybe OB/GYN dr.s offices, local magazines or maternity mags in dr.s offices=flyers/ads. .Put a banner on the rear view window of your car. free advertising on Backpage, craigslist. They cover multi cities. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn. Finda way to use u-tube for a fashion show and tips for expecting moms - recruit local PG moms for modeling clothes, hair styles, skin care, etc. You could have a lot of fun with this idea. . Blog(which can be time consuming) about fashion, hair & skin care= consult your beautician - maybe she'd help with great advice for a honorable mention in your blog and she'd return the fave by handing out cards for you. blog bout recalls on children items, safety tips, attach the blog to your website. There is more ideas so holler if your need more.

  • If you have an online store, you need traffic to your website. Three main things to focus on: keyword research, search engine optimization and good content. Keyword research will help you find the right keywords to place on your site for people to find you online. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) will bring your site to the first page when people are searching for maternity clothes and good content sets you apart from all your competition. I hope those tips help. Good luck with your online biz!
