Enhanced Interactivity

With eCommerce market near to saturation, the only way to rule is making the store experience of the buyers as interactive as possible. It is quite possible when a high-end platform like Magento is used. Engaging and highly relevant content is the first thing to focus on to make a site more interactive.

While converting potential leads/visitors to customers and growing the traffic to the site are amongst the top marketing priorities of eCommerce businesses, increased customer interaction can help retailers realise that. There are 4 ways to do that.

  • Welcoming visitors with on-site pop-ups for flash sales, daily deals, combo offers.
  • Loyalty programs/ rewards points collection
  • Promotional emails
  • Highly responsive site search

Specific placing of CTAs

CTA or Call-to-Action. “It is the term marketers use to describe words which cause conversions.”

‘Add to Cart’, ‘Buy Now’. ‘Click To Buy’, ‘Add to Wish List’, are some must-have CTAs for eCommerce sites. Among the wide-ranging elements for eCommerce site, CTAs are the most important element to be taken care of. While earlier there was no need for so much precision about placing the CTAs in a page, it is now realised that CTA at the right position can cause thousands of increase in conversions.

According to market studies, customers face more hurdles in the shopping, purchasing or finding out their products if they don’t get proper CTA buttons. Indeed, CTAs are the final attempt from an eCommerce business to turn a visitor to a customer. It is thus a priority for website owners to place CTAs in prominent positions to make them noticeable to the visitors and also convince them to click for buying.

Mobile Friendly eCommerce Site

It’s obvious fact that people are now much used to with small handy devices i.e. mobiles and tablets rather than desktops. This trend is prevalent in online shopping too! According to Statista, while there are over 2.3 billion smartphones users, there’s more percentage rise of consumers using smartphones than desktops for online shopping.
