When it comes to selling a product or service online, there are 2 main factors to consider and work on. First, the visibility of your business online and the second, attractiveness of your product or service.
Nail these factors and you may very well expect to see your business grow in the long-run.
Online Business Visibility
1. SEO-friendly and mobile-responsive Webstore
By owning a webstore, you may easily utilize it to promote your business branding. Customers tend to look out for information online these days either through a computer or their mobile phones. Hence, details found through your official webstore is an important resource for them. In addition to that, SEO-friendly features can be useful to help customers easily find your webstore online through keywords and links.
2. Selling on marketplaces
Another way to reach out to more customers would be to expand your business exposure through platforms that already have buyers visiting such as Shopee, Lazada, Zalora, eBay, Amazon and so many more.
There is no better way to quickly gain traffic and sales than to promote your business at a place that already has customers. The more marketplaces you sell in, the more customers you’ll be gaining online!
3. Shopee Boost
If you’re selling on Shopee, utilizing the boost feature is also one way to drive traffic to your store. By boosting your products, chances of customers discovering your products are much higher and you’ll be able to see an increase in store visits.
