Ask your customers to share pictures of them using your product with hashtags that are solely generated by your product. These user-generated photos will show potential customers that you currently have happy clients which will then drive more customers.
- Capture Email subscribers:
In online marketing, email is one of the best options at your disposal. It outperforms all your social media channels for generating sales, it keeps your customers aware and engaged, drives in more traffic to your online store and supplements content marketing. According to a recent research and surveys, 70% of people make use of coupons or discounts, 60% admitted that they subscribe because they get special discounts from businesses. Keep in mind that despite the countless facebook posts, tweets, or Instagram pictures. People cherish messages or email that have been sent to them personally. So, when your store is giving special discounts etc, more people would be aware of that fact when they would subscribe to your emails, which will drive more customers.
- Reach to press/bloggers and influencers:
Look for people who have a considerable amount of people following them. You can send in samples of your products to them, for example: hand out skin care products to a beauty blogger and ask them to review it for their followers. People follow bloggers/influencers and wait for their reviews before buying something because they don’t want to waste their money on something with bad reviews. Another method would be putting your business in the press, even though you might not have a big shot from big newspapers or sites but there is a chance of getting press from local news sites and community papers. Put your product in a blog or story and make sure your blog/story is catchy enough to catch the attention of people.
Once you adapt these ways there’s a great chance for a good number of people driving into your online store, just be sure to put in your best and the best will happen.
