Our Proven eCommerce Marketing Process Giving Big Boom in Sale for Our Clients

So before we look into the actual process, I am sharing the results we produced for our clients recently using the exact process I am sharing in the post below.

Client#1 – 265.12% Growth in RevenueClient Result #1

Client#2 – 134.23% Growth in RevenueeCommerce Process Result

Similar results we produced with four more clients.

Here is the exact step by step process we followed to achieve these results for our clients. And I believe this process will generate similar or even better results for any business in any industry.

Step 1 – Make sure all value propositions are highlighted clearly on the website.

Why a customer should buy your product instead of buying from your competitors ?

Its important to to clearly highlight the values of your offer. For example if you are offering free shipping or you are offering a 14 days easy return if customer is not happy with the purchase or express shipping or lowest price.

Whatever you offer that gives a great value to your customer should be clearly visible.

Placing this type of information on top of the web page helps a lot.

Here is an example from what we did for our clients –eComerce USP

Step 2 – Capitalise on positive feedback from your satisfied customer.

Positive Feedback left by a customer can play a real important role to win trust of possible new buyers of your products.

Make sure you include a provision to leave a feedback on the store by the real users of your product from the very beginning. If possible allow your customer to upload their photo while using your product in the real world.

We used Yotpo to encourage customers on our clients website to leave a feedback. It does great job in sending an automated email to every buyers once the order is delivered to them.

This email also includes an embedded form to write reviews. That makes the process of writing reviews faster.

You can use Yotpo in many different ways and various great features are available in premium plans.

So its never late, start generating reviews on your products if your are not already doing this.

Step 3 – Set retargeting options even before driving visitors to website.

Why Is that required ?

Because lots of analytical study shows that in eCommerce a customer requires around 5 touch points before making a purchase. So don’t get embraced when you google analytics shows customers are coming but you are not getting desired sale.

Instead start exploring all your possible options to reach out to these customers again with a new exciting offer. 

Here is what we did –

Offer Signup –

We created optin boxes on the website inviting visitors to signup to your offers and promotions. Generally we use two types of optin boxes –

  1. Welcome Popup – showing to visitors after a certain interval once they arrive on the website and offer them a discount code once they signup.Example of welcome signup
  2. Exit Popup – This type of optins shows when customers are about to leave your store.Example of Exit Popup

In worst case these optins converted at a rate of 2.5% for us. In some cases the conversion rate was above 10%. Which means your email list is growing at a rate of 10% of your store visitors. And this email list can be a most cost effective and result oriented way to product great sale. 

Facebook Pixel –

Even if your are not using Facebook ads now, You should install the pixel with all relevant conversion events from the very first day of going live with your online store.

Doing this can be fairly easy or complex depending on the type of technology you use.

Because Facebook allows you to retarget all those visitors with specific ads for example an ad targeting visitors who viewed x product but din’t purchased that.

Possibilities are endless once you start recording pixel events.

Here is a snapshot of data captured by a properly configured Facebook pixel –Facebook Pixel SnapshotSo the above three steps are the foundation of whatever you do in your marketing campaign down the line.

So to summaries the process, we need to clearly highlight our USP’s, capitalise on customer feedbacks or build up options if you are just starting out, and the most important one – always be in a position to re-targeted a big percentage of your website visitors be it with email or Facebook ads.

Step 4 – Building Up automated email flows – The Money Making Machine #1

Step 5 – Facebook Dynamic Ads – The Money Making Machine #2

Facebook Dynamic Ads are ads served to customers who viewed or added a product to cart but din’t completed a purchase. These ads really worked as Money Making machine #2 for all our customers.

For dynamic ads to work perfectly, the first important thing required is correctly setting up Facebook pixel on the website that can capture all the events correctly.
