Running a business online is similar to running a real store. The key is to get customers to buy what you are selling. However there are many differences in the strategies that you can use with an online store and the ones that you would ordinarily use in a regular store on the street. Here we look at how your website and CRM can affect your chances of success.

The Competition is Fierce

The number of sites trying to sell products and services on the internet are beyond computation. In each niche you have hundreds if not thousands of people competing with you. Selling exactly what you are selling and maybe at a lower price as well. So in the face of such fierce competition how do you make your mark on the internet? You need to find that unique point that is special to just your organization and then market it ruthlessly to your customers and potential clients. One thing that can help is the way you go about designing your website and your customer relationship management.

Out of Sight is Out of Mind

The kind of marketing you undertake also affects the business. There are a number of websites offering the same product as you but what is the true competition that you face? If you are a localized service such as a real estate agent in a particular state or city, you need not bother about websites of real estate agents in other states. Your web promotion strategies will include getting the word out about your products and services in local groups online and offline. Of course while putting advertisements in the newspaper and the local cable channels is a good idea, you should ideally tap the potential of the online marketing gimmicks.

Discounts and Perks can push up Sales

Most webstore designers will ask you to ensure one section of the website deals with the discounts and other perks that you offer your online customers. If you make offers for buying online which gives the customers a better deal than going into a store and picking up the same things you will naturally push up the sales of your own products and services. If you do make a sale to a customer make sure that you follow up with ongoing emails to offer the latest discounts that the site is giving away. Some of them will come back and buy from you if they were happy with the first experience and your web contact management.

Be Easily Accessible to your Online Clientele

Just how easy is it to contact the website owner from your portal. Make sure that you give out the relevant contact details on the website. That’s just half the story now you must be available to respond to the questions and queries that come in from the source. Keeping your customers in constant communication with the company can have a number of benefits. These will include spot sales, impulse buys and word of mouth publicity about the deals that you are offering. So make a mark with your ecommerce company on the internet and reap the benefits.
