Tips For Promoting Your ECommerce Business

Tips For Promoting Your ECommerce Business

An eCommerce business without a solid marketing plan is like a car without an engine: it might look good on the surface, but it’s going nowhere fast. If you want to take your eCommerce business to the next level, you need to promote it effectively and consistently. In this blog post, we’ll share 5 valuable, actionable tips that can help you succeed in promoting your eCommerce business and grow your sales. Whether you’re a seasoned eCommerce marketer or just starting, these tips are essential for driving traffic, boosting sales, and creating a loyal customer base.

Use Social Media Effectively

Social media is one of the most effective and affordable ways to promote and grow your eCommerce business. However, it’s essential to use it wisely. Focus on the social media platforms where your target audience spends most of their time. To make the most out of social media marketing, share engaging and visually appealing content, respond to comments and messages regularly, and use paid advertising options to target a specific audience. Social media influencers and bloggers are also vital for brand awareness via sponsored posts or collaborations, which can increase your brand’s credibility.

Collaborate With Other Brands or Businesses

Collaborating with brands or businesses that have a similar target audience can be a great way to expand your reach and expose your brand to new potential customers. You can collaborate with other businesses for a co-branded product or offer a discount code for their audience to incentivize them to try your products. This strategy can also be effective for gaining backlinks to your website, which will improve your search engine optimization (SEO) and lead to more organic traffic.

Email Marketing

Email marketing is still one of the most effective marketing channels, and it’s highly targeted for two reasons. First, it’s possible to personalize the entire email journey, effectively communicating with your subscribers. Second, with the ability to segment your email list based on a variety of factors, you can send targeted messages to specific segments. Whether you’re announcing a new product launch, sharing a sale, or providing valuable content or resources to your audience, email marketing is a crucial tool for building long-term relationships with your customers.

Focus on SEO

Search engine optimization is essential for promoting your eCommerce business for organic search results, basically for free. By optimizing your website’s pages with keyword-rich content, easy navigation, and compelling meta descriptions/tags, you can increase the chances of your site appearing for relevant searches. You’ll also want to focus on other SEO tools like off-page factors, like backlinks, social shares, and your domain’s authority. SEO can take time to see the results, but it’s worth investing in for the long term.

Use Paid Advertising Smartly

Paid search and social media ads are an effective way of boosting your brand awareness and reaching a more targeted audience. It’s crucial to optimize your paid advertising budget, though, by targeting high-intent keywords and focusing on specific demographics to make the most of your ad spend. Utilizing a retargeting strategy can also be effective in keeping your brand top of mind for those who’ve already interacted with your website or brand.

Growing an eCommerce business requires hard work, patience, and a comprehensive promotional plan. Utilizing the tips shared in this post, such as tapping into social media marketing, collaborations, SEO, email marketing, and paid advertising, will go a long way to bolstering your marketing efforts. Additionally, tracking your results, staying up-to-date on new trends and best practices, and staying consistent with your messaging and branding will help you stay ahead of the competition and market your eCommerce business effectively.

Socialboost
What photos or videos do you use?

By default, we can use the photos you have on your website as well as utilizing the plethora of photos available to us within our royalty free library.

If you have photos or videos for us to use, depending on your subscription, we welcome you to upload them into a Google Drive folder and share that link with us!

Looking for custom videos?  Some of our plans include videos or you can add them to any plan starting at $98/mo!

How do you mimic my branding colors and style?

As mentioned above, depending on your plan, we can use whatever you’d like to provide us! If not, we’ll resort to using your website or our royalty free library.

That being said, we can come up with custom graphics that suit your branding style as an add-on to your posting subscription.

$98/month for 3 custom graphics each week
$148/month for 5 custom graphics each week

Note: The cost of custom graphics is on top of your monthly subscription cost

What is content review & approval?

Content review and approval is where your social media content creator sends you a weeks worth of posts, prior to their designated publication time the following week.

This way, you will have the chance to give us feedback on each post in case you’d like us to make a minor edit.

Note: One round of editing per post permitted, depending on your plan.

What are the results I can expect from your posting services?

The idea behind consistent posting onto your social media pages is to keep them active with content that promotes your business solutions, educates your audience to showcase your expertise and to also keep things lighthearted, it’s social media after all!

There’s nothing worse for a business than to earn someone looking into what you do, only for them to see a barren social media page. To them, it may appear that you are out of business or potentially a scam.

We are often asked about growing followers and generating sales or leads. These are great goals to have but please understand that those goals are better obtained through paid advertising campaigns.

For more information on paid advertising, please visit our paid advertising services.

Do you use a posting scheduler and how do you get access to my business pages?

We are fortunate to be partnered with CloudCampaign.com to utilize their excellent scheduling platform.

By signing up for our content services, we will set you up with your own Cloud Campaign workspace depending on your plan.

During onboarding we request admin access to your social accounts using a secure platform. This allows us to manage the occasional disconnect when the platforms push out updates.

Furthermore, with your own workspace you are welcome to view and edit content at your leisure!

Why do my posts say “Posted by Cloud Campaign”

We use Cloud Campaign, which is a 3rd party app, to scale social media management and posting. When a post says “Posted by Cloud Campaign”, it is only the admins of your company page that can see this and not your followers.
