Are you looking to make more profit on your online store? The print on demand industry is demanding and competitive, so there may be some vital tricks you’re missing out on. If you are just starting out or you’re looking to get more attention, we’ve got 5 tips for you.
1. Social Media
The first way to get more customers is by utilizing your social media. This is the biggest form of advertising in society and will help spread the word around. It’s highly likely that a potential customer will be researching your social media to see what sort of presence you have. Establishing profiles such as Twitter, Instagram or Facebook Pages help build a great reputation and if they are linked together, can spread out your presence online and increase your website traffic. Building upon your social media is a great way to interact quickly with customers and is an extremely accessible platform. Here is our article for tips on how to promote yourself using social media.
Make yourself aware of the current trends and fads, so that you can utilize them. For your store to get attention, you’ll want to appeal to as many customers as possible. That means researching what is currently in demand. Cater your advertising to current events and you’ll be more likely to come up in searches by potential customers. For example, what holidays are coming up, or what is the most popular hashtag currently? You’ll lose customers if you are not appealing to their interests or advertising outdated stuff. It’s especially important for you to adapt your store to the current quarter the year is in. Thankfully, we’ve written an article covering what and when quarters are, so that you can make the most of them.
Focus your attention on your advertising, otherwise you’ll will not reach the audience you are intending to, let alone build upon the volume of buyers you already have. Lots of companies miss out because they don’t put the time or money into promoting their brand to the right audience. Have you considered geotagging, adding hashtags or even paying for adverts through Facebook and Instagram? Research your market, and you’ll be able to edit your adverts around your audience and directly recruit people interested in your store. Advertising is a necessity but how you do it will massively impact your success.
5. Sell After the Sales
Keep your customers close, even if the sale has finished. Your potential sales will be increased in correlation with your reputation. After a sale, ask for a review. Most customers will be looking for a rating or something to prove you are trustworthy. Plus, you will probably get repeat buyers if you keep the sale positive throughout. It’s really important to keep communicating with your customers and try to give them the best service. That way they might even recommend you to other potential customers. The main thing here is that as long as you maintain your relationship with the customers you have, you’ll be able to appeal and contact new customers in the future.
Overall, it’s important to evaluate where you’re losing profit and fill in the gaps from there. Check each of the steps to improve your reputation and strategy, and you’ll be increasing profit in no time!
