We have collected a list of 7 simple tips:
Welcome New Customers
After the pandemic started, eCommerce saw an extreme growth of new customers. Many customers turned to new brands because of value, availability, and convenience.
Checkout is the most important part of the whole shopping process. An average checkout rate is around 88 percent. However, you can change that by implementing a few solutions.
Improve Customer Service
Since customers can’t visit local stores and have to shop online, they no longer can check products personally. Thus, they started asking more questions about products they are interested in. You can easily turn these questions to your advantage.
Collect Customer Reviews
More customers online mean more reviews for businesses. The number of reviews was up by 76% in 2020. Such reviews can turn into powerful social proof.
