If you have an eCommerce store, whether you sell physical products or digital products, here are 5 easy ways to market your products.
1. Build an Email List
To build your list, you can offer coupon discounts if they sign up, sign up everyone who buys from you, and maybe give away a free digital product to your subscribers that relates to them and solves a problem for them. It’s easy to create a free PDF checklist or something that relates to the types of products you sell.
2. Start a Niche-Specific Group of Users
Another great tip for marketing your eCommerce store online is to start groups and forums using social media (like Facebook groups, for example) to create user-specific groups. So if you sell cat toys, you may want to start a cat lovers group where you can interact with cat lovers and then also give them first dibs on any sales or new products.
3. Run Facebook Advertisements
Instead of running a Facebook ad for your entire site, run advertisements for selected products or services individually. If you grab a Facebook pixel, you can install it onto your site by following the directions given by Facebook, or by hiring someone who knows how to do it such as your web designer or a virtual assistant. The pixel will then target only people who have already visited your site with the advertisement that you run.
4. Post Informative Content Often
Even an eCommerce site can have a blog that enables you to post informative content that engages, educates, and informs your audience about your products, as well as how to use them. You can publish case studies, user-generated content showing users of your product using it in action, examples of how to use your product, tips on using your product, and so much more.
The more useful, valuable, and informative the content is, the better. If it’s interesting and engaging, that’s even better because people will share it. It also gives you something to promote on social media.
5. Mind Your SEO
Product descriptions, product titles, and how you name the images of your products are all very important for the health of your search engine optimization. Don’t ignore any of that, thinking it doesn’t matter just because your customers can’t see it. The search engines see it and they use it to deliver your content to your audience, so don’t skimp on these important aspects of SEO.
