As an e-commerce business, it is important to grow your followers. The more followers you have, the more likely they are to turn into your customers. Unlike a physical store, there are always new potentials that walk by and shop. But as an online store, you would need to put in the effort and strategic ways to attract people to your online store.
1) Have a web address that actually makes sense.
It’s important that you take some time to come up with an e-commerce website address (URL). Why? This is to make sure it’s easy for customers to remember, it stands out from the crowd and communicates your brand’s message. Make sure your web address is the same as your company name, or include it.
2) Put it out there.
Make sure to have your e-commerce website address or Facebook store name on your business cards, existing brochures, advertising materials and company letterhead. Wherever you promote your company name, promote your web address as well.
3) Make sure to utilize SEO.
If you’ve got an online store, you need to be doing search engine optimization (SEO). This is a must! SEO will help your website to be featured prominently on search engines like Google.
