28 Oct Why Your E-Commerce Site Needs a Digital Marketing Strategy
If you sell a product or service online, your e-commerce site needs a digital marketing strategy? Why? Because if your customers can’t find you, you’re bound to lose thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars in revenue.
For example, let’s say you own a company that roasts coffee beans, and as of today, most of your revenue comes from in-store sales. Yet for the past several months, you’ve had a growing number of requests from out-of-area clients who are interested in having your products shipped to them. A lightbulb suddenly turns on in your head—because you realize that online sales are an untapped revenue stream.
You sit down with your web designer, and you decide to add an online shopping portal to your company’s website. People can browse your inventory, select the products they want, and choose how quickly they want their shipment to arrive. Overnight mail? No problem. Three-day priority mail? Also, not a problem. Whatever they want, you’re committed to making it happen.
Yet once your e-commerce portal goes live, you realize you’re not getting nearly as many orders as you’d hoped. Your base customers are ordering, but as of yet, you’re not attracting new business. Why? Because your e-commerce site lacks a digital marketing strategy.
It doesn’t matter if you sell the best product, at the best price, and provide the best customer service on the planet. If potential customers can’t find your business (or they don’t know your business exists), you’re not doing yourself any favors.
