When you find your e-business growth has stopped but the sales are constant then it’s the right time to change your strategy and adapt a new one with a contingency plan in place. There are different ways of increasing growth and some of them are

  • Market Development
  • Penetration
  • Launch new product in existing market
  • Product Improvement

card layaway

Out of all these methods the penetration is the only method which does not demand any research work thus reduces the cost of implementing the strategy. The penetration is defined as offering the products and services at low price than that of your competitors and target price conscious and low budget customers. This strategy might not be successful for the store with low profit margins due to high cost of manufacturing, operating and selling. Here is the tip for these kinds of e-merchants i.e. start selling on installments. Yes! With the introduction of technology and legislations the online installment selling has been made possible. There are hundreds of modules like Magento payment module which are available for the stores using open source program like Magento, prestashop etc to setup a proper partial payment function in the store. However before actually starting a Layaway program take the precautionary measure as stated below!

  • Develop written agreement and get it signed from the customer for future legal proceedings and do discuss every information about the pricing, extra charges and payment methods and time period.
  • Promote your plan as much possible as you can. Go viral in advertising and let you voice reach the customers who were looking forward to buy your product but unable to purchase because of their tight budget.
  • Restrict your layaway program to only those countries which do have legislation. You can restrict those customers using Magento IP restriction module or any other similar module offered in your respect open source software.
  • Keep the inventory high as there will be more customers to jump in and buy products, when you are big brand there are high chances that people will like to have your product by availing layaway opportunity.
  • Target the special events like Christmas as it is the best time to introduce your layaway program or re market your existing program to capture maximum audience.

It’s really fun, check out this PrestaShop module that has actually made this happen.

Sales Inclined

Advance Testimonials – Increasing Sales

For the past month i have been trying to collect all reasons that can increase sales. Many ideas on how to increase sales are well know but the tactics are hidden which are revealed below,

  1. Effective keyword research and content optimization can increase website traffic you are having at the own
  2. Developing a strong social circle to spread words of mouth and do referral marketing
  3. As obvious, the best link building strategy today is the guest posting. But what makes it successful is some value that you can put to it. Adding research, experiments, opinions etc with strong keyword optimization makes its robust.
  4. Selling through social networks such as Facebook stores, engage customers toward your brand, run contest and other fun activities to bring more people then direct them to your site.
  5. And YouTube, which we all know. But besides it there are few more services such as Vimeo etc.

testimonials

What I Found After 1 month of Research

To make my decision final and to execute the plan i met with some website owners running a successful marketing campaign. Though it was hard to know most of what they do to sell more products but what shocked me was a key ingredient that was totally out of my research for generating ecommerce sales.

What was it?

These were few plugins that can trigger more conversions on your website. Prestashop customer review module is one of them which help in managing customer testimonials. About 18% sales were increased as a result of installing this plugin which you can download here. Along with this, numbers of general inquiries were reduced because of the following reasons;

  1. Customers found confidence because they could see testimonials
  2. They assumed that if Advance Testimonials works for number of people, it can surely work for them.
  3. The result was more clicks on “Buy Now”

Advance Testimonial costs 49 euro which pushed sales level to 18% higher giving store owners a bunch of profit again and again. But where would you include this in your marketing strategies, On Page or Off page marketing strategies. I believe this should be in fundamentals, when combined with link building and social marketing its can bring excellent results.

As a general rule of thumb always start your marketing campaign with doing some research about essential plugins that can bring more fruitful results. May it bring more success to your business.

Prestashop as we all know is one of the top most growing e–commerce shopping cart solution software.  Prestashop wins the when the comparison is made with Magento on the basis of its“ease to use.”  Magento no doubt has a greater learning curve to get started with it where as Prestashop requires less which makes it favorable for all those e-merchants who are good in doing entrepreneurs but has less technical know-how.

Prestashop comes with 310+ free features but all those features fulfill basic requirements of an online store.

After the Google the most visited website is Facebook which cannot be ignored at any cost. The latest modules have help website owners to make their customers as brand ambassador. People love to share the products on social media that they have purchased or about to purchase. This increases the store exposure on social media and thus helps in generating more traffic and more sales.

The success of an online store depends on the presentation and design of the store. The question “how it looks?” defines the potential of the store. There are two ways of attracting customers either with unique and rare products or having similar products to that your competitor but a unique and amusing way of offering those products for sale.

Trendy-responsive-prestashop-theme

With the development of technology and e-commerce business there are millions of merchant to sell their products through online websites and that is what makes it difficult to have a unique product and survive in the market. Even if you find a unique product that unique will be hard to keep as other people will not take longer to do reverse engineering of your product and come with the same product as yours. The requirement of having an esthetically pleasing design increase when two or more e-merchants are offering the similar products.

The e-commerce shopping carts has made it easy to start an online store which has made the competition even more tougher as the e-commerce merchants are increasing day by day in different markets and targeting different requirements of customers.

This milieu of high competition nurtures the requirement of Prestashop customization, Magento customization, and customization of other e-commerce shopping carts. As the customization is the only way to get unique in design and product offering. The owner can create an idea the custom development experts can take care of that idea to make it real for your website.

The social media sites have become a commercial platform for all kind of businesses. The people from all age groups and professions are on social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and etc. The e-commerce shopping stores have realized the fact that beyond search engines there is another strong source of traffic and sales. The question arises how to handle all these networks at the same time. The social media management may require a team and resources that a small e-commerce store may not able to afford. The popular open source shopping carts does not come with the social media applications except few having very basic social media management feature. The merchant may not need to hire a team for the social media management as he can use the added features available for difference e-commerce shopping carts, the two best social media modules so far includes Prestashop Facebook comments module and Prestashop share module.

Prestashop Share And Follow Module:

As the name reveals it has two blocks one is for share and the other is for follow. The visitors can follow you on social network accounts using the buttons placed in follow block.

Whereas the Prestashop share module allows visitors to share the product or post page on their social network accounts. This helps to make the customers as your brand ambassadors.

In January, FME announced three new Magento Extensions all with interesting and revenue generating ideas. What makes these more interesting are the following facts,

  1. Generate maximum revenue in events like Christmas, Valentine and other holidays.
  2. Get conversions from CMS pages
  3. Provide Image slideshow or front/back image views on product mouse over

Let us briefly see each of these products and how do they work.

Event Discount Manager Magento Extension

The name of this plugin will give you a clue but what you can achieve with this plugin is enormous. It fulfills the need and urge for store owners to maximize their profits on yearly events such as holidays, ceremonies and any kind of event. FME has developed stand alone tools such as Product labels that can be used to put special discount labels onto each product for occasions. But to make group deals and packages Event Discount Manager is a perfect tool.

How it works

To create group deals Event Discount Manager provides comprehensive management module. You can create unlimited deals based on events and packages.

  1. First of all create your desired event. The image below shows how much information you can manage by adding event. You can configure Meta information, effective dates and use image for this particular event as well.

           2. Create packages, add products and categories to them and select what     price you will offer. Your price will be shown as prominent where as the market price will appear in strike through format.

Events Discounts Magento

Checkout for more details and comprehensive list of admin features you can use to configure packages. It’s all new idea, once you have created your deal, on the front end a separate page will list them as shown in the image below. The end result is that you create customer catching deals and get more of your products sold out easily.

 

Add Products to CMS Magento Extension

CMS pages are those such as FAQ page, About US, Contact US etc. These are visited by users frequently but merchants miss out important opportunity to drive conversions from these places. Every page of your website is too much important and has the potential to drive sales, it’s just the matter of how do you use it. So Add Products to CMS Pages plugin gives you all what it takes to drive more sales from these pages.

magento cms page extensions

 

CMS Products Magento Extension

You just need to visit any CMS page from Magento Admin panel and configure rules to automatically show products on these pages. Yes it’s all automatic and no manual work, it’s all about your comfort. The end result is a compelling call to action on CMS pages which will expose your store products to customers and get them to purchase it.

List View Product Gallery Magento Extension

List View Product Gallery Magento Extension is a 3 in 1 plugin that gives functionality of three different Magento addons. The theme of this addon is to let users view product images on one spot and checkout without navigating to product pages. It eliminates page reloads and produces efficiency in the work flow for users. How it works? Users just move their mouse over any product image, as long as the mouse is over the product, automatic image slide show will be shown to them or you can configure the extension to display front/back side of image.

magento gallery extensions

 

 

list view product gallery

It worked for all type of products such as simple, configurable, grouped, virtual etc. But this is not the end, users can view all images zoomed up in a popup window from where they can easily checkout or add products to wishlist. It really works for clothing, fashion and jewelry stores where users by moving mouse over product can view different angles of it such as front and back. This helps them visualize and make better judgments.

The post 3 Ideas for Creative Website Development appeared first on .

Those who are new to internet business are often struck with the concept that they would need to create their website from scratch. Over 60% of people use pre-made website templates and then alter them according to their needs. This process is called as customization and it has given birth to many open source and paid ecommerce platforms such as Magento, OpenCart, Shopify etc. Each one offers unique and creative designs in terms of Magento Themes, OpenCart Themes and Shopify Themes.

The best tip you could ever get is to use these Themes rather than creating from scratch. Important reason is that most of the popular themes’ selling websites have strict criteria to advertise and sell themes, so for the most part quality is assured. Secondly you can see how your products and services will look like on live demo, so you are not blind. In a manual creation of website you often end up in changing things which cause frustration for you and developer. It may also raise expenses for you.

A solid idea is that you can get a Magento Theme under $60 whereas to develop it from the scratch you might have to pay four or five times more than this. And that too depends on your requirements, if developer has to work more then you pay more. Another brilliant idea is that most of these themes include paid tools as free, so you don’t have to purchase and then incorporate them.

Why would you need those plugins?

You will need those because they offer relevant and user required functionality such as if you have a watch store then you its way better to showcase watches of different brands, but this plug-in or functionality cost about $100 alone whereas if you choose to buy Templates such as Magento Watch Store Themes, you get many paid plugins as free.

Below are some of the creative and outstanding Magento Themes to choose from.

If you don’t know then I would be glad to let you know that the instant uploading of your website when someone type in the domain name of your store in the URL bar matters a lot in the search results as well as in grabbing the Google’s Page rank. So, you must be careful about the content you are going to upload on your site because this is the only reason that stops the web entrepreneurs, not to go for flash based websites.

Well, the concern of the time is; how can we minimize the upload time of our E-store? And I would say its “Fooman Speedster” Free of cost Magento extension that will let you to optimize the upload time of your store by gathering, squeezing and caching the CSS/JS. The ultimate functionality of this extension is, reworking how Magento take care of the loading of CSS/JS. “It utilities the Minify library developed by Steve Clay and released under a BSD license”

The extension is thoroughly updated and complies with these versions of Magento (1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.4.1.1, 1.4.2, 1.5 ). if you have a huge store then I highly recommend you to go for it, if you are unable to purchase the premium one of same functionality.

The Benefits of installing Fooman Speedster on your store are:

  • CSS/JS will be combined into a single file for each.
  • File compression with and without the “GZIP” support on your hosting server.
  • Every time you update the JS/CSS files, a fresh URL builds up pursuing the customer’s browser to present the latest version. (Make sure you refresh the Magento cache).
  • Minify sticks with its performance, that CSS images are accordingly presented without taking care of, what package/interface/skin you have on your store.
