Google Shopping gives consumers a way to search for products and compare prices between different vendors before they make a purchase. For merchants, it’s a paid service that helps products get found by potential buyers. Luckily, Ecwid merchants have a simple way to make the most of Google Shopping. Before you dive in, here are some important things to know.
For many people, shopping is a social experience – whether shopping with friends at a physical store, or sharing online purchases with friends through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or other social media. When customers can easily share and ‘like’ your products and their activities with friends online, you’re not only building your company’s brand awareness, but you’re also improving your store’s ranking on search engines on sites like Google to drive more visitors to your website.
Any successful business needs to attract customers, but the real challenge is ensuring that customers return to your store after they make their first purchase. By offering a reliable, enjoyable, and smooth shopping experience, consumers are more likely to remember your business. Check out our tips to help build loyalty and generate repeat business from your customers.
We know that locating the desired product within your online store quickly and effortlessly is extremely important for conversion rates and sales. The search field can be a powerful tool. For instance, your customers may have heard of a brand, but are unsure of its exact name or perhaps they misspelled the brand.
It’s hard to believe that just five years ago, Ecwid was released to the world as one of the first 100% AJAX e-commerce platforms. For small business merchants, AJAX may not mean much, but what it does for small businesses is powerful. Since 2009, Ecwid has enabled merchants with an existing website, blog, or Facebook page to easily embed an online store that blends into the respective site.
We recently improved Ecwid's order status listing to make them more descriptive. The new order status set will help existing and new Ecwid merchants by making order management easier for them and their customers. As always, this update is designed to improve your ecommerce experience! Please read along to see all implemented changes.
The writing is on the wall, or rather, the mobile device: customers are using their phones and tablets to shop now more than ever, and if your website isn’t optimized to increase your mobile conversions, you’re missing out in a huge way.
One of the unique Ecwid features is that you can add it to any DIY sitebuilder, blog, custom-build web site or a Facebook page with a few lines of code. If you have any web presence, you can embed your Ecwid store on it. Today, we’re glad to announce a new Ecwid feature that allows you to start selling online in minutes even if you don’t yet have a web site. Please welcome Starter Site — a nice mobile friendly one-page web site with a built-in Ecwid store.
Your online store is humming along quite nicely (thanks to your superior management and some help from Ecwid). Sales are strong. Visitors are staying on your site – and buying things. Then, out of nowhere, a small dip in activity settles in. Uh-oh.
The most successful businesses work hard to create a personal connection with their customers that makes us feel special and keeps us returning for repeat business.
