Maybe you have just set up your online business and are ready to start making sales. Perhaps you have been in business for some time now and you are looking to increase sales for certain products. Whatever your situation is, you need a great marketing plan. E-commerce marketing allows you to drive traffic to your site and turn these visitors into paying customers. Marketing is what will show prospective customers that they need to purchase from you while also retaining the customers you already have. So how should you go about marketing your business?
1. Start with a content marketing strategy
It is said, with reason, that when you fail to plan you plan to fail. Unless you start by making a thorough and executable plan, your marketing campaign is doomed to fail. Note down all the methods through which you will reach your audience and evaluate along the way.
2. Diversify your social media platforms
There are several social media platforms to choose from. Diversification allows you to get the most out of each platform as each platform works well in certain markets. With time you will be able to set apart those platforms that are yielding you the most profits and shift your focus to them. Furthermore, if you spread your content across several social media sites you are likely to reach a wider audience.
Customers will be more interested in your content if it is fresh, unique and unadulterated. Granted, pulling content from the internet will save a lot of your time. However, people are likely to recognize the content and be discouraged from purchasing your products. Develop your own blog posts, podcasts, videos and eBooks from scratch. Customers will connect better with you if you constantly provide them with fresh but insightful information.
4. Reward loyal customers
Develop a system for rewarding customers who have proven their loyalty to your business. For instance, you may offer discounts or cash prizes.
5.Consider email marketing
Provide visitors with an opportunity to subscribe to your email list. Make a point to send automated emails regularly to customers. You may include important company updates, current promotions and exciting offers for them to try out.
6. Integrate Instagram to your e-commerce
Instagram allows you to post thousands of photos which are accessed by customers, prospects, influencers, and brands. Use powerful hashtags to make your posts easier to find and make them more exciting. Ensure your photos are of great quality; you want to compel people to make an order.

I tried other companies and I paid them and they didn’t deliver what they said they would do . We need to value those like Alex and Beehive that have class and integrity in their life and work place . Thank you Alex for years of managing my website and being there for my needs.
We have done 5 custom videos with Beehive and had great feedback on all of them. In the day and age of digital marketing, this is a no brainer.
I started off just needing a logo for my company so I could make business cards. Alex and his team did such a great job I decided to use them to build my company’s first website. Within a few weeks the site was up and custom built to everything I wanted. I will definitely be using Beehive for my next project.
