    I have a new website for sale cosplay costumes. We have a factory and made the costumes by ourself. Mainly supply Marvel and DC comic superhero cosplay costume. Market is high-end and can accept custom made.
    Now the website is new. Our quality is high but no one know our website. I have ask a facebook friend, they rather buy things on amazon.
    So how I can I promote my new website? Anyone have some good suggestion?

    You could:
    - promote your items on amazon too
    - promote your items on social media
    - pay for ads
    - SEO your website to increase traffic.

    Thanks for you advise.
    1. I sale on amazon before. But for some copyright issue, my account has been closed.
    2. Yes, I post on facebook, twitter,etc. But seems the result is not so good.
    3. What kind of ads, can you advise?
    4. I am SEO now. Would you advise some SEO suggestion?

    I can understand why. Because the characters are owned by Marvel and DC, you need to show you have permission to create the costumes.
    2. Yes, I post on facebook, twitter,etc. But seems the result is not so good.
    What did you post? What you post is just as important as where. You don't want to be "selling" all the time.
    3. What kind of ads, can you advise?
    You can advertise on social media, just not all the time. Old-fashioned classified ads may work as well.
    4. I am SEO now. Would you advise some SEO suggestion?
    Without knowing what you've already done, we couldn't offer any helpful suggestions here, but there are many threads in our marketing forums that may help.

    You can even place your ads, probably banner type, on good blogs having good daily traffic. Look for such blogs which upload about 5-6 posts every day.

    Hi,

    You can speak to Amazon about the copyright issue and provide proof that you have permission to sell products of those characters. However, they have also started blocking certain brands to only be sold by the company themselves. If you have a proper license you may still be able to sell though.

    Instagram and Pinterest can also work well for you. You can approach instagram influencers who match your company' target audience to do a competition or giveaway and on Pinterest you can pin pictures of your costumes on group boards where a lot of parents will see them.

    Hope that helps.

    Well i have a great idea for your website. The best way to sell these products is on an affilate platform. Do affiliate marketing for your website. Add your product to the amazon and other e commerce websites. Try to promote your business on social media like facebook and twitter they would be a great help for your business.
    if you want to go for paid campaigns use facebook adverts which is far more good and effective then Google PPC. You can also promote your website by traditional methods like newspaper advertisements, banners and Promotional products.

    You can start off by listing your product on Amazon and maybe giveaway your products for free on forums. Amazon FBA is another route you can go which seems like win-win to me. Also, considering Amazon has a lot of inventory you can try promoting the product on Amazon ads.

    I completely got your point and as per the mentioned info that you have everything except the brand name outside in the market. Dear friend, i can understand but you must have to try each and every aspect that gets your products before people. As suggested above try to market your products in marketplaces like Amazon, Flipkart and many other online portals along with start a proper plan to publicise your costumes to the people. People now are more online and make use of this in the best way with the help of brand awareness campaigns, partnership & mainly advertising. No business will get into the success place until and unless they put efforts and spend on advertising their products. The most popular mediums like Google AdWords, Facebook ads and other advertising ways. Other than this you can regional advertising, digital media in which tv and other sources are more effective these days so try the efficient aspect to reach out to the worthy people. Hope this works

    I think you need to look for web celebrity, And famous cosplayer, let them dress you compay's clothes. That is the fast way to raise the profile of the company. But it need a lot of money, as you know "No pains, no gains".
