Most online sales occur because consumers are actively searching for a specific service or a particular product.
Regardless of your e-commerce niche, your business needs a solid marketing plan to drive traffic to your website and crush the competition. With an expertly-optimized e-commerce site, you’ll be more visible.
And you’ll draw better, more qualified, more targeted visitors.
You have a variety of strategies from which to choose, each designed to drive traffic to your website.
It’s widely believed that merely having an engaging, user-friendly website is enough.
Believe it or not, how you describe your product or service is critical. Many e-commerce businesses don’t realize the importance of this. Just as many e-commerce marketing agencies overlook it or don’t know how to implement it.
Consider the following descriptions of the same product:
If you’re in the market for a Porsche, which are you more apt to buy?
Of course, not all services or products need visualization like choice B gives. But product profiles and descriptions that are more engaging sell better.
SEO helps drive traffic to your e-commerce website. Even better, visitors to your site are ready to buy. This happens when you identify keywords and key phrases that shoppers use to discover your product or service.
When you optimize these words and phrases, several things happen:
The result? Increased leads and better ROI.
Even if your site ranks well organically due to keyword optimization, PPC advertising is effective. It’s especially successful for generating traffic as you establish your organic rankings.
In many cases, you can configure e-commerce ads to display when consumers search for particular keywords. If they don’t click on your ad, you don’t pay.
A PPC campaign is useful in identifying the products on which to focus your ad spending. This maximizes your marketing efficiency and improves ROI.
Bottom line? PPC ads quickly and easily pay for themselves when you target the right keywords.
You already know how popular Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media sites are. Why not leverage them to skyrocket your e-commerce business?
You can market your products, advertise special events, and announce promotions. Even better, social media builds a loyal fan base by encouraging customer engagement and feedback.
Customers will share your popular products or well-liked services on social media. Positive reviews and glowing testimonials position you as an expert. You become a highly valuable source of information.
This builds trust with everyone. It also makes current customers loyal and draws in new ones.
Creating valuable online content is essential. Search engines embrace quality content, which in turn bumps up your rankings. Some examples of effective content include:
Engaging, useful content increases your viability as an expert or authority. And this boosts customer loyalty.
A heat map is a visual data analytics tool that shows which areas of a website are getting the most attention.
It uses a color spectrum to show which parts of your site are hot (popular) and which are cool (not so popular). It displays where consumers click and how far they scroll down a given page.
In short, it shows and analyzes user behavior on your website.
Heat maps make large volumes of data easier to study and interpret because they make the content visual. They are useful in helping gather information from which you can make decisions to optimize your website.
When applied correctly, each of the above delivers eye-popping results.
However, when you implement one or more together, your chances at exponential growth skyrocket.
