Basic Selling Tips
When Uploading Images try to use As many Pictures as Possible that Clearly show the Product you are Selling and Images that showcase The product features and all the different angles.
Products with a White Background will perform better on search engines so this may be something you can keep in mind.
Title & Description
Your Title should be a short and easy to understand summary of the product you are selling. You can try putting in keywords that will help you get found easier on search engines too.
The description of your Product should include all the details the customer will need to know a T shirt for example will need to show sizes so including the measurements of the Shirt will greatly help the customer understand what they are buying.
|Garment Width (cm)||46||51||56||61||66||71||76||81|
|Garment Length (cm)||71||74||76||79||81||84||86||89|
|UK Size||8 to 10||10 to 12||12 to 14||14 to 16||18 to 20|
|Garment Width (cm)||41||43||47||50||56|
|Garment Length (cm)||64||67||69||71||72|
Put simply a keyword is a word most customers will type to look for a product for example If the customer is looking for a Bed they will type in the word bed. Seems like common sense but keywords are important when creating your product they will help your product be found easier on search engines and by customers.
So when creating your product title be sure to include as many keywords relating to your product as possible whilst keeping in mind what will the customer search for?
So It is important to research the most used keywords for your product to give yourself a greater chance of being found.
You also have to keep in mind that your product title is easy to understand and the customer knows what they are buying.
You cannot just put in every key word possible. because the customer will be confused.
4 seater 3 seater chair sofa leather fabric furniture (this makes no sense and the customer has no idea what they are buying)
whereas leather 3 seater + 2 seater sofa furniture set ( this makes sense whilst including the keywords)
It may not seem important but including a thank you or further details within your purchase note will make you seem more professional.
Delivering good customer service may be the deciding factor if that customer chooses to come back and buy for you again. it will also help build trust and may also get you a review for your store or product compared to just accepting their money and delivering a product then asking them to review the product.
A Simple thank you can go a long way.
Two sellers may be selling the exact same product but a review means you are trusted so customers will likely buy from the products with High reviews.
You can get great reviews by sending follow up Emails to customers or delivering a fantastic service and product to your customer.
