Just as if you were opening a brick-and-mortar store in your town, if you are running an online store, you’ve got to make sure that people show up to buy your products. You need people to know what you’re selling, why they need to come in and buy, and why they should tell other people to buy it as well. There are many reasons why social media is an effective tool for selling your products. It’s cost effective, there are billions of users on social media and it helps build a community around a store!

5 Ways to Market Your Products on Social Media

Get the word out and build a successful business by following these approaches to marketing your products on social media:

Choose the social media platforms that are right for your business

With tons of other social media platforms popping up everyday, your marketing options may seem overwhelming. But you don’t have to be everywhere at once. Explore your social media options wisely and use platforms that best showcase your products and reach the audience you’re looking for.

Facebook — Facebook is a must have. It has customizable marketing and tracking tools with a massive reach. Every merchant should create a FB business page. And of course you can add your Ecwid store to your Facebook page!

Twitter — If you have the time and resources to send consistent tweets you can develop a following.

Instagram and Pinterest — If your product has a strong visual element. For example if your store sells clothing or unique items that need to be seen.

LinkedIn — Great for products geared to businesses and professionals.

Create clear and urgent calls to action

Once you’ve developed a following, you want visitors to feel compelled to click on your updates and take action. Create incentives by offering limited time promotions and discounts, and use action-based language: “Click here…” or “Enter to win…”

Offer followers and fans exclusive deals

Customers are more inclined to get involved if they feel that they are receiving special treatment or getting a deal that can’t be found elsewhere. Create different offers for each social media platform you use.

Encourage sharing

Inviting your customers to interact with your product and brand will develop loyalty and help spread the word. Create contests or promotions that give people an additional chance for winning if they share the news.

Keep all of your social media accounts current

Regularly update your accounts with new content to keep your business on your followers mind. Layout and policies for social media platforms can change over time, make sure you’re making the most of each one. Don’t be afraid to show your human side by posting inside news and pictures of your employees.

Customer Service

Always remember, the customers come first. Answer all comments and feedback, even the negative ones. Make the customers feel special and avoid formal marketing speak. Imagine that you tell news about your store to your friends or colleagues.

Adding Ecwid to your store is easy, efficient and no big investment is required!

So simple to use – even my most technophobic clients can manage. Easy to install, quick to set up. Light years ahead of other shop plugins.
I’m so impressed I’ve recommended it to my website clients and am now using it for my own store along with four others for which I webmaster. Beautiful coding, excellent top-notch support, great documentation, fantastic how-to videos. Thank you so much Ecwid, you rock!
I’ve used Ecwid and I love the platform itself. Everything is so simplified it’s insane. I love how you have different options to choose shipping carriers, to be able to put in so many different variants. It’s a pretty open e-commerce gateway.
Easy to use, affordable (and a free option if starting off). Looks professional, many templates to select from. The App is my favorite feature as I can manage my store right from my phone. Highly recommended 👌👍
I like that Ecwid was easy to start and to use. Even for a person like me, without any technical background. Very well written help articles. And the support team is the best for my opinion.
For everything it has to offer, ECWID is incredibly easy to set up. Highly recommend! I did a lot of research and tried about 3 other competitors. Just try ECWID and you'll be online in no time.
