Below are tips you can use to improve eCommerce and stay ahead of competitors. This article was written by Brooke Chaplan in collaboration with Second Spring Digital Inc.

Maintain an easy-to-navigate website

One of the main reasons small businesses lose out on sales is because their website is not easy to navigate. Most consumers use their mobile devices, so your website should be mobile-friendly. Even in 2021, many websites are not up-to-date and too slow to process orders on a mobile device. If your visitors need to complete a specific action to make a purchase, you should explain the necessary steps. Helping customers follow a clear call to action could prevent them from becoming agitated and logging off the website. Instead, they are more likely to stay on and make purchases.

Personalise correspondences

This is a strategy that can make customers feel valued and genuinely appreciated. When you send out emails and postal mail correspondences for deals, new products, and other important information, the flyers, documents, and text should have a more personalised approach, regardless if you use the person’s name or base the correspondences on customers’ preferences and past purchases. The objective is to build strong relationships with customers.

Re-evaluate marketing goals

Small businesses need to determine what their long and short-term goals are and evaluate the success of each. If your plans have not been achieved, the time to regroup is now. An experienced company can provide effective eCommerce services for small businesses to utilise. These strategies include shipping and distribution and online sales, combined with marketing, which can increase your business’s success.

Maintain customer engagement

Every small business needs its consumers. You will need someone to purchase your products and services to earn a profit. Announcing a unique item or discounted service does not automatically lead to sales. You need to keep customers engaged by building up the excitement of your current products, new deals, and future advancements. You can do this by maintaining customer engagement via social media and with regular announcements.

These are some tips that can help you capture consumers’ attention while keeping your current customer base happy in 2021 and beyond. When you invest more money, time, and strategies into eCommerce, you can keep customers engaged and grow your small business by increasing its sales and brand visibility.
