Are You Ready for 2010?
Categorized as : Ecommerce
In a little over a month, we’ll be rolling over the calendar. What will that mean for your business?
If you haven't begun to plan for your organization's success in 2010, it's not too late. Why not start by tackling our end-of-year "to do" list?
1. Revamp Your Website
Just as people change, so do companies and websites. If your organization’s site hasn’t been updated in the past 18 months, it’s time to reassess everything, from the graphics to the copy. Sure, it may take a little time, but the results will be worth the effort.
2. Evaluate Your Internet-Based Store
Is your online store really "working" for your business? Are you maximizing the capabilities that are available to you? For instance, the aheadWorks AJAX Cart Pro extension can enable you to strategically cross-sell and up-sell to current customers. It can also assist you in avoiding those dreaded (and pricey) "abandoned cart" losses.
3. Improve Your Inventory
Maybe it’s time to find or create some new items or services to sell. When you do, you’ll have an excuse to get in touch with all the clients who previously purchased from you. Don’t try to be all things to all consumers, though. Be selective and judicious in what you add to your inventory.
4. Rev Up Your Reports
Are you capturing all the customer and sales data you could be? If not, you should consider aheadWorks Advanced Reports extension. That way, you’ll be able to easily spot areas of improvement.
5. Tout Your Testimonials
A customer tells you that you and your products are terrific. What do you do with that information? If you’re smart, you use it to woo new customers to your store! Make it a habit to utilize unsolicited positive feedback to your advantage.
Guarantee that 2010 is going to be your business’s year to break sales records by positioning your company the smart way.
Be bold, be creative and be successful with aheadWorks!
