An Online Store Owner’s Guide to Window Shopping

Manhattan

If you’ve ever walked along the streets of Manhattan around Christmastime, then you must have seen the festive window displays outside your favorite department stores. This is a tried-and-true sales method that’s been in place for more than a century, and the idea behind said windows is to draw customers in by creating a stunning visual representation of the material necessities offered inside.

Owning an online store isn’t all that different from owning a brick and mortar establishment. While eCommerce merchants may not have to create beautiful, physical window displays for their customers, they do have to dress their store and its social profiles for every occasion.

Take Valentine’s Day, for example. Lovers in love all over the country will flock to online marketplaces seeking gifts for their sweethearts. E-store owners need to prepare for this, and one of the best ways to do just that is through the creation of original holiday-themed graphics and marketing content. Read More!

The following 15 3dcart sites act as shining examples of web designs to both envy and emulate. Each embodies unique qualities and characteristics while also showcasing the incredible power and versatility of 3dcart’s robust eCommerce software.

Increase Newsletter Subscription Rates By Offering An Incentive

Newsletter

Newsletter open rates are driven by quality of content. Newsletter subscription rates are driven by something else… something not so easily defined.

If you’ve ever subscribed to a newsletter, I’d like you to take a moment to try and recall what enticed you to sign up. Was it brand loyalty? Perhaps it was the need for more information or the possibility of future savings that swayed you?

One last question, or rather a pair of questions. How many times do you need to visit an online store before you consider subscribing to its newsletter? Would you subscribe as a first-time shopper or only as existing, loyal customer?

The point of this exercise is to get you thinking about the psychological reasons, and unique circumstances, people subscribe to newsletters in the first place. Now I’d like you to think about your own e-store’s newsletter and what you can do to increase its subscription rate. Read More!
