eCommerce Marketing – it’s not just a service…

An eCommerce marketing plan is developed by focusing on five objectives: systems, helping new visitors to find the website, turning visitors into customers, after-sale marketing to encourage repeat visitors, and multi-channel distribution and understanding all the data

Helping new visitors find a company’s eCommerce website is largely dependent on search engine optimization, pay-per-click marketing, social media marketing, and display advertising. A successful eCommerce marketing team also needs to have expertise in infrastructure, order management, inventory integrations, multi-channel product distribution, shipping providers, payment gateways, accounting, and MAP policy, and know how to streamline these systems to make them all work for the business.  The biggest key is aligning all these systems and marketing efforts with the technical skill set of the team and business, whether it’s a small retailer, resort, multi -location retailer, or a product manufacturer.

Multi-channel eCommerce is a big step to grow or scale your eCommerce activities, but should only be implemented after your “marketing machine” and systems are dialed in. If you are a product manufacturer, you MUST have a strong MAP policy before you allow other retailers or marketplaces to sell your product online, to not start a price war for your own product.  In many cases, even the manufacturer can get cut out by large marketplaces with bigger ad budgets. Multi-channel eCommerce can be incredibly profitable, while building your brand at the same time.
