Marketing

(or lead). Keep in mind that this relationship must be built carefully and
using the right tools. So how do you stand out from competitors and deliver
value in your messages?

An
online platform allows you to collect a lot of crucial information, this is
essential to segment the audience and understand their true desires. See below
some of the main strategies made possible by digital marketing applied to e-commerce.

Define your persona

In
digital marketing, you need to embrace the concept of personas, which are
semi-craft profiles based on real consumers. This way you can create targeted
and assertive campaigns. You won’t be wasting time or money delivering messages
that are unnecessary or do not impact your customers. Creating a persona
requires studies and analysis from your customer base to achieve this “ideal
model” that will drive your efforts.

Sales funnel

You
have certainly heard of this term in your daily life and it is no wonder. This
is one of the most important processes in your entire customer relationship,
ranging from problem identification and first contact with your brand to
purchase and after sales.

Knowing
how to recognize at what stage the consumer is at is critical to delivering the
right communication with the offers and information he or she really seeks.

SEO, of course!

SEO,
or Search Engine Optimization, is the set of actions applied to your pages and
content to better rank within search engines. This matters because it will
increase the chances of your site being found by someone during a search. About
this, we have a number of articles that can help here, just take a look at the blog.

Inbound marketing

Inbound
marketing is the strategy used to be found by people and attract them to your
e-commerce. The first step is to understand the customer’s pain and deliver
him/her a solution, even if you are not offering a product at first. Educating
the consumer can be as important as selling something. This is the process of
creating authority on the subject so that in the future, when he knows what he
needs, he will be reminded to close the purchase.
