Hey guys, I was recently given the opportunity to working with a sea food start up company. I am lucky to work with my best friend and with associates in the crossfit and jiu jitsu industries. We have all the product that we need, we just need to drive sales to our website. Any suggestions or hints would be welcome.

our website is https://www.itsumoahijerky.com/

Just looking at your site I'd say the copy is too wordy and small in some sections. Also consider offering a lead capture form for a free trial package where they just pay shipping and handling and then you can send promotional facts and info (and offers for discounted product) in an email.

SEO is a crapshoot right now til stuff settles down after the last algorithm update methinks.

Honestly I'd run PPC ads to a lander that had a lead form and build a list that way then look to develop a following on social media sites like youtube. Depends on your marketing budget.

My 2 cents. Best of luck.

you REALLY need to re-work your website. not trying to be unnecessarily harsh, but aside from the look which needs plenty of work of its own, the writing is just incredibly unprofessional and bad. plus, for a site that goes on and on about how natural the product is, you dont even show an ingredients list or nutrition label...come on dude, that is the first thing that health conscious shoppers are going to look for, not marketing fluff.

alternatively, maybe spike your jerky with cocaine to develop a rabid fanbase?
