Strategies to Promote Shopify Stores
1. Engage your audience on social media: Social media platforms are among the best places to start publicizing your Shopify store. Your options include:
- Organic content on your platforms
- Invest in social media ads
- Advertising with influencers
- Share product updates
- Connect with customers
2. Invest in paid ads: Paid advertising can help reach a larger audience and drive traffic to your Shopify store. You can use:
- Google Shopping campaigns
- Facebook ads
- Instagram ads
Among many other social media platforms to promote your products.
3. Create a pre-launch viral campaign: Create a buzz by announcing a pre-launch viral campaign and providing exclusive deals, giveaways, and early product access. Most of the time, the simplest things work the best.
- For example, 2 for the price of 1
- Buy X and get Y completely free
- Sign up today for a 20% coupon code
4. Create video reviews: Video is one of the most engaging and highly viewed content mediums on the web today. With most of the social sites showing the highest engagement levels on their Reels, Stories, and Uploads, it's where your customers are hanging out, and so should your product.
Plus, such reviews allow you to showcase example use cases, enabling you to educate your potential customers simultaneously.
5. Create infographics for your products: Presenting your product in a graphical format, like an infographic, allows you to be creative with use cases, product features, and even just quirky, informative content around your product.
Add your website link and information in the graph and share it on social media, or send it to some of your favorite bloggers - who may post it on their blog as well. While this may look like you need to be highly creative, there are may tools available online that help you design your own infographics.
6. Sell Thematic Gift Cards - Seasonal gift cards are an excellent cash flow idea for your business. People can either buy it for themselves and spend it later or buy it as a gift for whatever the current season and occasion is.
7. Find affiliates to promote your business: You can partner with affiliates with a similar target audience and promote your products on their websites or social media platforms.
8. Join local events: Local businesses thrive when they connect with their local audience. Participating in local events where you can showcase your business can help spread the word about your product or service in very little time.
Fairs, conferences, festivals, sports events, street fairs, and fundraisers are all events where people from many walks of life, who can also be your customers, get together and are generally open to seeing and trying new things.
9. Give discounts to new leads: You can use your email sign-up forms to offer coupons and discount codes for new leads. This marketing method not only helps you gain qualified leads from people looking to be customers but also adds to your brand value by creating loyalty and a sense of exclusivity.
10. Create a gift guide: Save your customers time and effort by creating a guide that they can use for easy gifting, especially during the holiday season. You can even develop guides by interest, personality, or activity.
