Is your Marketing Strategy ready? Blog on your Website ➜ A blog on your website can help you bring you audience which can be your potential buyers. ➜ The websites which blog regularly have better CTR (click through rate) and conversion rate as compared to the ones which don’t.
  10. 10.

Twitter Ads ➜ Twitter offers promotional activities on its platform with the flexibility to narrow down your targeting as you need it. ➜ Promoted tweets don’t really look different than the normal ones and have good chances of getting favorites, retweets and clicks instantly.
  12. 12. #3 MAKE THEM SUBSCRIBE You cannot rely on paid advertising every time you want to reach out your target audience. So, it’s very important to build a subscriber base from day 1 of launching your ecommerce business & make strategies to improve the subscription rate. My favorites are MailChimp & SumoMe.
  13. 13. #4 USE MULTIPLE PAYMENT GATEWAYS All the payment gateways have different offerings, comfort and ease of paying online. Your users might be loyal for their favorite payment gateway and this is why it’s important to consider using multiple payment gateways. This will also increase your checkout success rate/ conversion rate i.e. sales by offering flexibility to pay through another payment gateway if one fails.
  14. 14. #5 LOGISTICS PARTNER THAT DOES NOT GIVE YOU NIGHTMARES ➔ Choose Logistic Partner on the basis of your Customers’ expectations ➔ If most of your customers need to buy via Cash on Delivery, arrange it ➔ Find a good logistic partner and lock the deal on the basis of mutually beneficial terms. ➔ Make sure your stuff reaches to your customers on or before time which can make or break your future referral business.
  15. 15. #6 DEFINE YOUR TARGET AUDIENCE What age group and gender do you want to target? What geographical locations would you be interested in reaching out to? What interest areas should your target audience match? What should be your customer’s spending capacity? etc.
