How To Make This E-Commerce Holiday Season Your Best Yet

Fall is only just starting, but for anyone running an e-commerce business relying on holiday season sales, it is time to get 2021’s marketing campaign underway. Some of the big players in retail have already started. Anyone shopping in-store will probably have noticed the first few holiday decorations being put up. Online, some leading e-commerce retailers are already publishing their holiday deals. Cutting through the noise will take a well-planned strategy.

E-commerce has never been more competitive. However, the market is also bigger than ever before. While e-commerce has been growing steadily for years, it has grown exponentially since the Covid-19 pandemic hit last year. Green Street retail analyst Vince Tibone told the New York Times that Covid “pulled forward five years of fallout into an 18-month period” for the retail industry. Leading retailers including Walmart, Target and Amazon reported staggering growth in their e-commerce business last year.

While some may have thought this expansion of online shopping and related services is temporary, a number of experts believe the shift to e-commerce is permanent. Walmart chief executive Doug McMillon said the company believes the shift in how customers shop is largely here to stay.

All things considered, this is good news for any e-commerce business: Growing markets and more customers mean businesses will flourish. However, as more retailers are moving online, marketing campaigns need to work harder to stand out.

Align Your Organic And Paid Strategies

Creating a successful holiday marketing campaign starts with clearly defined goals. Increased sales are not always the obvious answer. Raising brand awareness or boosting website traffic is just as valid and maybe better suited to your organization.

Organic and paid-for search engine marketing work hand in hand. Search engine optimization grows organic traffic, but it can take time to see results. Adding terms that are pertinent to holiday shopping can help a business’s rankings but may not be fast enough for anyone starting now.

You can’t successfully run a business without a consistent revenue stream. No matter how strong your ideas are, they won’t be of much use if you don’t have a way to continually bring in money. As a business owner, more revenue usually means more security, and that will lead to more satisfaction with your business from both the client and team perspectives.So, how can you go about bringing in more revenue for your business? You can’t simply will the money into existence, as much as we all wish that we could. The truth is that there is no one-size-fits-all strategy for revenue generation — after all, every company and every industry are vastly different. However, you can probably get a good start by focusing on lead generation.Why Are Leads So Important?Every company must sell their product or service if they hope to succeed in the increasingly competitive world of business. Whether they do this through old-school cold calling and traditional sales reps or through high-tech marketing channels, they will always need one thing — leads. While you can always get better at selling, the magic is in the leads.Sales reps can’t just call on random people or businesses to see if they require a product or service. It would be a colossal waste of time. You may have heard stories of powerful reps in the '80s simply running through the Yellow Pages and calling every number they could find. Those might be impressive, but they are a rarity, and becoming even more so in today’s world.Read more: Five Lead Generation Strategies For Your Businesshttps://strategicmarketsolutions.com/?p=2388 ...
