When you are engaged in marketing, the bottom line is your bottom line!
Certainly, you will want to foster client relationships, however, you want to profit as well. If you need to close more sales and prompt your clients to buy from you then begin by considering these upgrades to your site.
To begin with you have to work on getting visitors to your site and have them land on a page that is optimised to immediately provide them with the content they are seeking.
Optimise your landing page with the information your users are seeking while eliminating all distractions in order to increase conversions. For visitors who land on your site for the first time, the way your content is presented can make a big difference. Check out these tips for improving your landing page.
Certainly, trust may not be as large a factor for consumers who are bargain hunters, but it is likely to make a difference with most visitors who are considering purchasing your products or services. Here’s some ways you can build trust:
To get your visitors to convert to paying customers you must provide them with the required information. Having a good text product description, social proof, displaying related products, and doing some upselling can all be effective, but using product videos can work wonders to increase your sales.
Recent research has shown that 57% of all online consumers say that product videos help them to have more confidence about making a purchasing decision and the likelihood that they will actually buy is increased by 23%. Here’s how you can make use of product videos:
In addition to providing excellent product information, an intuitive and well thought out shopping experience eases the path to making a purchase.
Even a shopping cart that loads slowly can result in lost sales. You can achieve added sales by providing visitors with content of interest on your checkout page while it is loading. For example, you may want to display additional related products that may be of interest to your customer.
Here’s another point to keep in mind. Visitors are more apt to wait when they are made aware of the length of their wait time or at least if they are shown where they currently are in the purchasing process. This may require some additional coding, but it is usually worth the effort because it can affect your conversion rate.
In cases where visitors abandon your shopping cart, all may not be lost. You can still try to get them as a customer by sending them a follow-up email that will offer them some incentives and encourage them to return to your site to complete the buying process.
Consequently your website needs to be mobile-friendly since mobile users will soon comprise the bulk of the market. Consider the following to give your mobile initiatives a boost:
A continual steam of well-written, engaging, and useful content will provide you with more visibility on search engines and social media platforms. This will give you a better chance of attracting your targeted visitors and increasing your sales. When you post high-quality content you end up building trust with your audience and increasing the chance they will purchase from you.
Create excellent branded content in order to reinforce the trustworthiness and prominence of your business so that it stands out in your chosen niche.
If you are not getting the amount of sales you would like, examine your CTAs. To get a sale, you must ask for it, but you have to do it tactfully.
You should include CTAs within your product videos, on product pages, in your content and on your mobile sites. Make sure your CTA is clear and prominently located. Without clear and prominently placed CTAs, you are unlikely to make many sales.
