  • 2. WHY E-COMMERCE IMPORTANT In today's competitive business world, having an online presence is more important than ever. This is particularly true if businesses wish to grow, extend their sales, and reach customers they might not have reached before. Ecommerce sites enables businesses of all sizes to reach their target range of customers without being physically present. Since the rise of the Internet in the mid to late 1990s, companies have listed their products and services for sale online. People have caught on, and many enjoy the benefits and ease of being able to browse for products on e-commerce marketplaces from the comfort of their own homes. In effect, ecommerce marketing has become more important than ever for businesses to stay afloat. In fact, businesses can lose customers or revenue by not maintaining an online presence

  • 8. LINE OF SIGHT MERCHANDISING TECHNIQUES In many offline retail stores, the layout of the shop floor is governed by the line of sight from the entrance of the store. Line of sight is the natural or common focus points for a consumers eye to be drawn to as they enter a shop. It is within these focal points that stores will place their top selling and highest turnover categories for the season to help increase sales on these items. This line of sight merchandising theory can achieved online using a number of simple options:  Promote top selling categories using banners or carousels on entry pages .  Change your navigation structure to ensure that most popular categories feature prominently on top level navigation automatically by monitoring top selling categories and changing the navigation to reflect this.
  • 9. GIFT MARKETING In offline retail we have known for years that people tend to shop with budgets in mind, particularly when shopping for kids in an effort to ensure that everyone is equal. Think about the gifts sections in apparels which begin to pop up dripping with gifts and stocking fillers. With this in mind, consider introducing not only a Gifting Category, This will ensure that the e-commerce shoppers who are on a mission to get in, get gifts and get out very quickly with fixed mindset of purchase on a particular product on there preferred ecommerce store on targeted category during the festive season.
  • 10. CHANGE YOUR ‘YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE’ PRODUCTS  Most good ecommerce site platforms provide site owners with the option of including related or recommended products along the side or on the bottom of product pages users are viewing.  This is loosely based on an offline merchandising technique that is often used to increase average transaction values (ATV). In offline retail you will often notice that matching accessories or complementary items are placed.  This technique increases in importance. To maximise on opportunities here, ensure that you review your “you might also like” options across your site. For example if you sell a Laptop ensure that some of your recommended products on that page are Laptop Accessories or Hard Drives. Or if you don’t have a match to complete the look, think about pushing your stocking filler type gifts for your Ecommerce shoppers.
