[51] Ecommerce Best Practices That Get More Sales Fast - Acquire Convert


Great post Giles,
The main purpose of every business owner is to make a sale so he can take care of his financial needs.

However for you to be able to make that sale whether you’re an ecommerce owner, blogger or any other form of internet marketing, you have to research and see what others are doing in your niche.

If you see everyone doing it then, it simply means that its working therefore, what you should now do is to implement it on your blog too and see if it will also work for you and if it does then, you adapt to it.

I see many ecommerce stores doing majority of the things you mentioned here and it shows that its a very cool strategy.

Hi Theodore
Thanks for your response.
Of course it is important to keep up with best practices, but you must a/b test ideas from case studies.
And even better, come up with new ideas for website changes from data collected from your website and customer.

Spectacular article. Thank you very much for taking the time to write it.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the best practices for getting visitors to signup to a paid subscription service.

Hi GoGoChimp
Thanks for the kind words.
I am actually currently working with a client to create a sales funnel for their monthly subscription business.
The results of which I will post as a case study in a month or two, I’ll let you know when it goes live.

Thanks Giles for sharing this wonderful article. Improving checkout process can contribute significantly in reducing shopping crat abandonments on your e- commerce store. But, apart from this, improving the user experience and appeal of your site through the use of various web testing and web analytics tools can also help in improving your conversion rates. There are various tools like Unbounce, Mocking Fish, Crazy Egg, Click Tale and such others that can help you in this direction.

Hey Keith
Thanks for your detailed response, I agree these best practices are only a small part of a much bigger CRO process.
They should also be superseded by hypothesis ideas collected from analysing data from your website and customer of course!

No suggestions on how to get past the round-robin of negative social proof. Don’t display low “like” numbers, but you cannot collect high like numbers unless you display the like box?
This drives me crazy, I’d love more info on how, or rather when, to implement like and share buttons on new sites with initially low traffic.

Hey Dian
You can initially not show the like count, just the social network icon in a custom button using the api or a plugin.
Then once you are up to respectable figures for your niche, show the count.

It was the best article I have read in months. The article is written in a very clear way that any one can follow the steps mentioned above and get the advantage.
I will also apply all the case studies i hv read above on my website step by step and will write down the results i get.
Thanks a lot Giles.
