E-Commerce 101: Take charge of your deliveries this 11.11!
It’s that time of the year again — the season of sales! End-of-year sales are when your orders are likely to skyrocket and you’ll need all the help you can get. Did you know that 39% of online shoppers vow to never return if a delivery disappoints?
Heed these 5 key points we have — and we’re sure that your brand will make the best out of this crazy shopping season!
#1: Inventory & Stock
Before sales start, check and double check your inventory to ensure there’s enough stock to go around for the entire sales period. The last thing you’d want is for your customers to land on your product page but leave before carting out because there’s no stock. To predict your sales volume, look back at historical data to understand there is enough physical stock to meet the forecasted demand. This should all be planned at least 2 weeks in advance so you’ll be all set to dedicate your remaining time to manage orders.
#2: Traffic Acquisition & Conversion
The typical customer journey on ecommerce sites go from the homepage → category pages → product detail pages (PDPs). PDP optimization requires descriptive and rich product titles, images, body content, etc. For higher conversion rates, your PDPs should have helpful customer ratings and reviews. In this era of smart consumers, it’s common to research before purchasing anything, and having ratings and reviews just simplifies the customer’s shopping experience.
People always say, “First impressions last forever”, and that’s exactly what your product’s packaging tells your clients. Pleasing and thoughtful packaging will change a customers’ first impression of your product. It is also a subtle but effective way to slip in your Social Media handles, Call-to-Action Buttons and Promotional Campaigns!
#4: Fulfillment & Delivery
Delivery is commonly regarded as one of the most crucial among other tangible aspects of a business, because it is where your business and expectations of customers meet.
