First Impressions last
How attractive is your online store? Is it boring or exciting?
One way to get people’s attention is to give them a very positive outlook of the site. An attractive appearance is a must. If the background or the pictures and photos that are attached to the site are too dull or boring, how do you expect people to be interested in your site?
Think of your market. What age group are you targeting? What kind of products are you selling? Be specific and be direct to the point.
Remember that first impression lasts. It will only take 2- 3 minutes of your visitors’ time to check out your site and if they don’t find anything interesting they can immediately leave the site and possibly won’t come back again.
Offer Promotions and discounts
Who doesn’t love special offers? It doesn’t matter how big the discount is, the mere mention of a big discount and promos is enough to keep people interested.
Some people are just waiting for these promotions before they purchase the product. Unless the product that they want to buy is badly needed.
It is proven and tested that giving promotions, discounts and freebies can help sellers achieve their targeted goal. More special offers mean more visitors of the site and more clients that can possibly buy your product.
Use social media wisely. Use this to spread information about your site and your product.
Attach stories that are worth sharing with others and show pictures that are relevant in helping your audience understand better what they can get from you.
Be as friendly and helpful as possible
Be prepared to answer different inquiries and questions from the customer before, during, and after a sale.
Customers feel important every time you respond to their requests and suggestions. It’s not just all about a business. Let them feel that they are valuable and important regardless of the amount of their purchase.
Once they feel comfortable, they will keep buying from you and will also recommend your online store to their family and friends.
Now that you’ve heard some key points to be considered to help you have a successful online shop, it’s your turn now to apply what you have learned. Go ahead and rock the online world!
