6 Steps to Selling More

Properly written e-commerce copy can make a HUGE difference on your website. It’s not uncommon to see proper copywriting increase search traffic by 50% and conversion rates by 30%.

Quality e-commerce copywriting is vital to the success of any online business. Remember, if you’re selling something online, potential customers can’t see or touch your product — they can only read about it. Keep this in mind when crafting product descriptions and writing copy in general.

    I haven’t tried kissmetrics. But I think I am going to check it out since I want to find out more on how will I promote my website more based on the traffic that I am getting. The info graphic is very informative and very detailed too. I like the suggestion to make the marketing idea more simple, avoid exaggerating the product and establish the trust.
