Create a Positive Experience with Shipping

Shipping.

It almost sounds like a bad word. But it doesn’t have to be.

Unless you expect every customer to collect their purchases directly from you, shipping is just part of the process for online shopping.

And it doesn’t have to be a negative experience. The key is communication. Let your customers know what to expect before they get to the check out.

22 Marketing Tips to Promote Your Online Shop

Your website is live, your products are loaded, and you’re ready for shoppers!

So, where are they?

With a physical shop, you’ll receive some foot traffic just by having a presence and an open sign. The online equivalent of this is your SEO, but that’s naturally going to take some time to get going, and just as with a physical shop, it’s not enough on its own.

Writing Tips to Engage Customers and Search Engines

A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a well-worded description can sell anything.

Words are convincing, they’re emotive, and they’re what every product on your website needs to accurately describe them for your customers and search engines, like Google.

You don’t need to be a master of the pen (or keyboard) to convey why your product should be snapped up, but it helps to put a little effort into your text. (more…)

Top 10 Essentials for your E-Commerce Website

What do you do when you search online for a product and land on a company’s website? Whether consciously or subconsciously, we all perform checks before considering a purchase. It makes sense that we want to make sure this company we haven’t dealt with before is trustworthy, before punching in our credit card details. We need to know who we’re buying from, that they’re reputable, and be assured we’ll receive the product and appropriate service.

So what things help us as online shoppers to tick the boxes? There’s some really simple, but extremely valuable, information that all businesses can include on their website to help potential customers overcome that first barrier to buying online from a business new to them.

Cross these 10 items off the list and you’ll know you have a great basis for winning over new online shoppers. (more…)

Why your pharmacy needs a website

Many consumers won’t even consider transacting with a company that doesn’t have a strong online presence to go with their physical store. A website should serve as a company’s central hub in today’s modern marketing world.

If your pharmacy does not have an adequate online presence, you could in fact be missing out on sales through your physical store.
