  37. 37. AND – NEW SERVICE FROM SITE STRATEGICS We are the fast & easy way for small businesses to make Mobile Apps We talked about how many apps are being launched daily, more apps are launched than babies being born daily! The reality is that with the adoption of the mobile devices and the “second screen” marketing, the ability to connect with consumer loyalty is stronger than ever.

  38. 38. 12 CONVERSION TIPS ARTICLE: ECONSULTANCY: Ian McCaig • Christmas is the biggest ecommerce event of the year and a time when consumers are at their most willing to part with their hard-earned money. • The impact of the holiday period on the attitude of customers offers a huge opportunity that online retailers can‟t afford to miss. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 39
  39. 39. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 1. Welcome your visitors • Visitors are often uncertain of what they want at Christmas because they are shopping for friends, significant others, relatives and children. • To help communicate your brand‟s values, serve new users a welcome message. This is a chance to familiarise visitors with your brand and USPs and to give them a good reason to buy their festive gifts from your website. • Limit the message to one time only and customise it for your target audiences by traffic sources, search terms and purchase history. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 40
  40. 40. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 2. Use Christmas imagery and language • Physical stores use Christmas decorations and music to get shoppers in the mood; so tweak your website to give it a more festive look. However, don‟t over-do your Christmas rebranding as you still want people to recognise that you‟re you. • Christmas-specific language can have a huge effect on your conversion rates. Conversion Voodoo found that using the headline „Merry Christmas‟ within an email generated almost twice as many click-throughs than the same email using „Happy Holidays‟. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 41
  41. 41. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 3. Countdown to Christmas • Everyone loves a deal. So offer your customers a variety of deals with a time constraint to ensure they return again and again. • In the build up to Christmas, change your deals daily – or even hourly – in order to drive up impulse buys. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 42
  42. 42. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 4. Push gift guides • Gift guides are great for giving shoppers inspiration, advice and suggestions. A link to a size guide or buying guide can help explain different fits or specifications to a shopper who is shopping for something they wouldn‟t usually buy, making them more likely to convert. • Create category pages for gifts or add filters to existing category pages, asking shoppers questions such as: • Who is the present for? What is their age? Relationship to the buyer? Gender? Personality? Is it a secret Santa gift? A stocking filler? Do you need a gift for „under $50‟? 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 43
  43. 43. IF YOU‟RE TUNING IN! If you just tuned in: You‟re Listing to Edge of the Web Radio We‟re talking about 7 CONTENT MARKETING FAILS 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 44
  44. 44. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 5. Show stock levels • Providing stock levels for your customers means they know if they‟re about to miss out on a product or good deal. If a visitor was considering leaving a product in their basket, they‟d be much more likely to purchase if they saw there was only one left. • However, use this message sparingly and remove „out of stock‟ items from category pages to reduce frustration and hassle. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 45
  45. 45. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 6. Bundle products together • Christmas time is product-bundling heaven. For example, if you notice someone is interested in a particular scented handcream offer them the full range of fragrances at a discount. • Customers like a bargain, and retailers like higher average order values, making it a win-win situation. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 46
  46. 46. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 7. Publicise e-vouchers • E-vouchers are a retailer‟s dream. Not only can they be sold throughout the Christmas period because they are not dependent on physical delivery, they are also incredibly useful for gift-buyers who are unsure about what their recipients would like. • Take advantage of this gift idea by preparing a specific page to sell e-vouchers as gifts, include different image options for the email or printout. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 47
  47. 47. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 8. Align online and offline targeting • Use data from all your channels to give customers the ultimate shopping experience this Christmas. Your customers‟ online experience is becoming increasingly significant to the state of offline purchases so ensure that your online and offline comms to consumers match. • For example, make sure that website promotions are available in-store as well. Aligning your online and offline marketing strategies will help avoid the risk of alienating consumers with inconsistent messaging. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 48
  48. 48. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 9. Shout about your delivery • One of the main concerns shoppers have during the festive season is whether their gifts will arrive in time for Christmas: clear, easy to find delivery information will help put their minds at ease. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 49
  49. 49. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 10. Offer gift wrapping, but carefully! • If your site offers a gift wrapping service, make sure to point this out as it can be a great time-saver for shoppers at this busy time of year. This addition to the purchasing process also has the great feature of increasing average order value. • Make sure the gift wrapping service is a seamless part of the checkout. Don‟t force people to opt out, but make sure they won‟t miss the service, even if they are in a hurry. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 50
  50. 50. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 11. Offer returns, or an explanation why not • People buying gifts as presents want to know their options if the gift needs to be returned. If you have a particularly generous returns policy then shout about it. • Reassuring your users that everything is hassle free should the recipient not like the present allows visitors to be more adventurous in their choice of gift, and more disposed to buy. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 51
  51. 51. 12 CONVERSION TIPS • 12. Up or cross-sell to drive average order values • Raise your average order values by cross-selling associated products at the checkout. Place it next to the basket, especially if you have a free delivery threshold and recommend spur of the moment stocking fillers, focusing on those cheaper, lower consideration goods. 1-877-SEO-4-WEB 1-877-736-4932 52
