How To Sell More Online
The following tips will help you sell more of your products online.
Number 1 – Make Sure Your Website Is Mobile Friendly
Mobile Commerce or MCommerce is huge and getting bigger.
The best option is called Responsive Design where your website is designed to look great on any device – desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile.
Another thing to bear in mind is that Google is now starting to penalize non mobile websites so sooner or later you need to make the switch.
But don’t just stop at your website – make your emails mobile friendly whether they’re transactional ones like invoices & receipts or sales & marketing ones.
Number 2 Use Live Chat
I love Live Chat and so will you if you’re serious about selling more online.
If you’re getting traffic to your website then Live Chat is the only tool that will give you a return on investment in minutes.
Number 3 – Use video
It’s estimated that video can improve conversion rates by 80%.
Number 4 – Use Fast Hosting
SSD Hosting delivers the goods. It’s like rocket powered hosting.

The bottom line is that Google loves fast websites & so will your customers.
Number 5 – Have a secure website
HTTPS is the basic price of entry when it comes to website security. It’s also a Google ranking factor so it’s best to use it from day 1.

Number 6 – Use great images
Don’t just use the manufacturer’s images. Create your own images that pop.
With sites like Pinterest these days images and photos are vital if you’re to stand out from the crowd.
Number 7 – Write Amazing Product Descriptions
Don’t just cut and paste the manufacturer’s product descriptions.
Why? Simple – everyone does that so you’ll get penalised by Google for duplicate content.
That’s a massive mistake.
To avoid this just imagine your customer & just speak their language without any jargon.
Hit them with the benefits and show the features lower down.
Number 8 – Get Reviews
Customer reviews are pure sold gold so don’t be shy to ask for them.
When you get them show them where everyone can see them – front & centre on your product pages.
Number 9 – Have a great Site Search
If you’ve got lots of products you need to make it easy for people to get to what they want quickly & easily.
Show your site search prominently where people will see it and use it.
Number 10 – Great Thank you pages
Once you’ve made a sale take your clients to a Thank you page.
It’s a huge opportunity for you to continue the conversation with your new customer.
There are plenty of options available to you whether it’s social shares, joining a newsletter, fill in a survey or refer a friend this small detail can make a huge difference.
