In an ever-expanding e-commerce world, it can be a challenge to get your products in front of the right customers at the right time. This blog gives a few simple tips on improving your e-commerce store to ensure more customers discover your products. Product Information Management Systems can provide huge benefits in helping this process.

Paid search advertising

In 2020, search advertising accounted for 8.4 billion British pounds in spending in the UK alone. It is therefore imperative to focus attention on your keyword and paid advertising strategy in such a saturated and competitive space. Hidden within PPC accounts, wasted spend on keywords with little to no conversions is a very common sight. For example, broad match keywords can often lead to Google bidding on keywords that aren’t particularly relevant to what you are selling, leading to wasted spend if these ads are clicked. Broad match keywords can be used effectively, but it is important to monitor them and add irrelevant words to negative search terms.

Poorly set up conversion tracking can also hinder the accuracy of the data your Google Ads account uses. The start point of any PPC strategy should be to ensure that conversion tracking is setup correctly, tracking exactly what you want to track.

Categories

Once a customer reaches your site, you want to ensure it is as easy as possible to navigate to the products they want to buy and discover new products. This becomes particularly relevant if you have a large range of products. Keeping your ideal customers in mind can help to formulate a way to sort your products into groupings that allow your customers to find what they are looking for. Categories within OneTimePIM are very flexible. They can be built to reflect the way you wish to set up your e-commerce store.
