The e-Commerce industry was booming and then COVID-19 struck. It gave this sector an exponential growth like never imagined. While the erstwhile retail format brands created their digital presence, there have been numerous new brands emerging in the online space today.
Though a lot of brands sell through third-party aggregator platforms like Amazon, Flipkart, etc., most brands try to launch their own websites and sell through it.
Here’s how you can market your eCommerce store:
- Create a robust platform: Just like how your retail format store has to be well-organised, furnished and present all offerings properly, similarly your eCommerce store needs to be decked up. Ensure the platform speaks about the brand, highlights products distinctly and is user-friendly. The platform should be strong to hold huge traffic as well
- Set the communication right: Be it the content on your website or what you communicate on a WhatsApp message, the communication should always speak in your brand voice. You need to define the right message and the visual language. For this, hiring a branding and marketing agency is extremely important
- Create a brand pull: Leverage social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, etc. to strengthen your brand. Engage the audience with your brand to eventually convert them into your customer. In case you need assistance, hire a digital marketing and social media marketing agency that will help your brand to build a strong social engagement
- Fill your funnel: Get your target audience to land on your website via the intent-based or interest-based search. Ensure you communicate ‘what is in for them’ clearly to ensure the audience clicks in your ads and lands on your platform
- Remarketing: The story doesn’t end at getting the customer on your platform, rather it begins from here. The catch is to hold them and keep remarketing yourself. Be in their sight to be on the top of their mind
It is the right approach and alignment of all the above mentioned that eventually helps you get the customers and retain them.
