After all, conversions depend on whether your customer can easily find all the information they need to make a decision about your product.

  1. Brand identity comes first - figure out who you are, what you do, and what makes you unique.

  2. Optimize your site so well, that even your grandma can navigate it, i.e, minimum clicks, clear messaging, and great UX throughout

  3. Avoid overusing discounts for sales and use more sustainable strategies instead.

  5. Implement a marketing strategy across different channels.

Tips & Advice

  • When it comes to different digital platforms - live shopping has unparalleled conversion and engagement rates.

  • Be cautious with discounts. Reserve them for suitable holidays or significant milestones for the brand.
