Using your phone number
This may sound obvious but we see LOTS of people who retail online via
eBay and their website trying to ‘hide’ behind a website and think people don’t
want to call them as they are shopping online. WRONG.
We have seen where online retailers have added a phone number to the top of
their website (on every page) and also to the top of their eBay listings and eBay
shop seeing MASSIVE INCREASES IN BUSINESS. If you do just one
thing today, make sure you have your phone number in a prominent place, it
adds credibility to your online business, makes you look more approachable
and will get sales from people who still like to pick up the phone and talk to a
real person before buying (yes these people are still out there).
Becoming an expert
This scares many people as they believe they aren’t an expert and could never be an
expert but if you are selling something online chances are you have LOTS MORE
KNOWLEDGE about your product and its market than most other people out there.
You need to capitalize on this knowledge you have to drive sales and the best way to
do this (and we have seen MASSIVE RESULTS from this) is to sign up to forums
and Facebook groups and help people with questions/problems they may be having in
your expert subject.
Helping people with free advice and guidance (without trying to sell to these people)
will build up a loyal following and trust and give you lots of extra traffic and sales to
*We implemented this strategy with one of our clients and now they have received
tens of thousands of visitors to their online shop generating lots of new sales.
Skimming the cream
Lots of online retailers (probably you too!) use websites like eBay and Amazon to
generate sales but do you use them to their maximum potential.
You need to use these sites to get your customer and then retain them as a paying
customer on your website.
There are many ways to do this and one of the best methods is to build a customer
database so wherever you ‘acquire’ the customer, whether it be eBay, Amazon or a
retail show you want to drive these people back to your website to get them to buy
from you time and time again.
We talk about this strategy in more detail in our FREE ‘eCommerce Zero To
Hero’ guide which you can download here.
Building business assets
We talk to lots of online business owners and they get confused when we talk to them about the difference
between ‘selling online’ and being an ‘ecommerce business.
You may wonder what the difference is, aren’t the 2 things the same?Well, yes and NO!You see, an
eCommerce business is something that has value, a brand, assets, a customer database, something that one
day, to a potential buyer, has massive value and means your business can help you realise your dreams once
you decide the time is right to sell itWhereas an ‘Online seller’ is someone who sells online, primarily on
sites like eBay, has no website, no brand and no customer base to call their own!Which would you say is the
business you would prefer to have? If you answered ‘AN ECOMMERCE BUSINESS’ we recommend you
