I started an online website selling African Shirts, but still haven't made any sales. How can I increase traffic to my online website?
I always preferred to invest in seo
It's no wonder that best way to get long term traffic to the website is SEO by which you can get organic traffic but it takes some time, if you want instant traffic then you can use PPC ads but you need a good budget here.
On Line Website - Make it SEO friendly

Do Social media paid marketing
5 easy ways to increase website traffic:
1. Optimize your website content
2. Use social media
3. Do content outreach and guest posting
4. Create a system that allows you to get recurring traffic
5. Repackage and re-purpose your content
Regularly share your content on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn etc. If there is such possibility to ask other people/friends/etc to promote your page, do it. Identify what makes you distinct from your competitors and make some experiment with videos (both prepared and live stream), infographics, and other kinds of content that will catch people’s interest.
Also guest blogging is a good method, and email outreach to influencers.
And success will be near with combining of all of these methods :)
Reach out to influencers.
