Tips to prepare your e-commerce for the Black Friday
The last editions of Black Friday confirmed that the date brings good results for the e-commerces and, in 2017, the event reached a revenue of R $ 2.1 billion. If your store believes that the competition is very high, we can confirm that. However, for those who prepare and invest in the date, there is space for all segments and this can be a great opportunity to get new customers.
Check out some unbeatable tips to attract customers to your e-commerce and close sales with reduced quitting rates:
Attract qualified leads
The Black Friday provides a considerable increase on e-commerce traffic, and people wait for that day and reserve budget to invest. But rather than attracting audiences, it’s important to target your media investments and your campaigns to focus on qualified leads, stimulating buy and repurchase.
How to do that? Drive, for example, your campaigns on social networks and search engines, with ads customized to your followers and customers. Also, make pre-campaigns to generate buzz and attract users interested in the promotions and discounts of the action to be the first to receive the offers.
Decrease the chances of exchange and return
Sales opportunities on Black Friday are huge and democratic, so stores can not waste time and, for that, it is necessary to boost the conversion and sell without exchange, even more in a period in which profitability is reduced. For this reason, it is recommended that e-commerces minimize this process by investing in tools and customizations that increase the customer confidence and improve all sales indicators.
