I am currently working as social media marketing assistant for a home decorations site, the online store is already up for 2 months but unfortunately the site is not getting a lot of visit. I've only been focusing on social media marketing as of the moment, but I think I need to do the old way of marketing as well. What do you think I should do to attract more people to our website and increase our customers? I really need a professional advice on this... TIA!

If your site does not get more visitors, then find out the reasons behind it and fix the issue. e.g. if your site is not mobile friendly then redesign it in bootstrap to make it mobile responsive. You can check it https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/

Second thing, update your services, content, of your site. Thirdly offer discount packages/ free gifts etc and send this information to be delivered on social networks, Local advertisement agencies, TV channels, and banners etc.
You must use old methods of marketing too including Bulk sms, emails, local ads, ppc, etc.

Social media marketing has been always the best free resource for obtaining direct traffic and business clients. However, it will be recommended to maintain good visitors flow by posting good user engaging content/information in it.

According to me you need to adopt traditional SEO along with social media marketing. As you have home decoration site, you will have a lot of images to share so engaging image sharing sites like Pinterest, Flicker, Instagram will also give you a lot of traffic.
