After all, how many people will read that question and think <em>No, I’m making all the money I need?</em><br><br>Not many.<br><br>Making money is good and making more money is even better. So, knowing how to utilize the sales techniques that can turn more shoppers into buyers---as well as add more money to a lot of sales---can only be a good thing.<br><br>These 3 effective sales techniques are called:<br><br>Up Selling<br>Cross Selling<br>Bundling<br><br>If done correctly, they are highly effective at making money for you and building your revenue. Here is how each one works.<br><br><strong>Up Selling</strong>---According to trusty Wikipedia, here is the definition of up selling: “Up selling (sometimes "up-selling") is a sales technique whereby a seller induces the customer to purchase more expensive items, upgrades, or other add-ons in an attempt to make a more profitable sale. Up selling usually involves marketing more profitable services or products but can be simply exposing the customer to other options that were perhaps not considered. Up selling implies selling something that is more profitable or otherwise preferable for the seller instead of, or in addition to the original sale.” <br>Here is an example, let’s say you are dropshipping camping equipment and a shopper is looking at plain pop-up tents. They might be a prime candidate for a larger tent with more bells and whistles such as screen windows and separate rooms. So, by all means, show the shopper these fancier, more expensive tents. What have you got to lose? Worst case scenario is that they stick with buying the less expensive tent, but they might go for the pricier one and you will have made more money!<br><br><strong>Cross Selling</strong>---Here is the Wikipedia definition for cross selling that pretty well sums it up: “Cross-selling is the action or practice of selling among or between clients, markets, traders, etc. or the action or practice of selling an additional product or service to an existing customer. In practice, businesses define cross-selling in many different ways. Elements that might influence the definition might include the size of the business, the industry sector it operates within and the financial motivations of those required to define the term.<br><br>The objectives of cross-selling can be either to increase the income derived from the client or clients or to protect the relationship with the client or clients. The approach to the process of cross-selling can be varied.”<br><br>Now, for your dropshipping purposes, cross selling will mean selling an additional product to a customer. For instance, a shopper is browsing your office supply products and looking at copy paper. Chances are that this shopper will also need other sorts of office supplies, so you can show him/her other items such as printer ink cartridges, pens pencils, markers and so on. This boots your sales because you end up selling someone multiple items.<br><br><strong>Bundling</strong>---Again, we turn to Wikipedia for a great definition of bundling as it pertains to sales: “In marketing, product bundling is offering several products for sale as one combined product. This is common in the software business (for example: bundle a word processor, a spreadsheet, and a database into a single office suite), in the cable television industry (for example, basic cable in the United States generally offers many channels at one price), and in the fast food industry in which multiple items are combined into a complete meal. A bundle of products may be called a package deal or a compilation or an anthology.”<br><br>So, the idea here is to offer a shopper multiple correlating items in a “bundle” with a lower price than buying each product separately. This is a win-win thing for both you and the customer---they save money on things they need and you make more sales and hence, more money. Bundling is a very effective way to boost sales and income for a dropship business.<br><br>So, there you have 3 <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/26806/dropship-tips-cross-sell-or-upsell-what-s-the-difference" title="sales techniques than can boost income for your dropship business-" target="_blank">sales techniques than can boost income for your dropship business-</a>--get started now!<br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/100131/3-Sales-Techniques-That-Can-Boost-Your-Dropship-Business-Income&bvt=rss">Greg ScottMon, 19 Aug 2013 02:05:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:100131http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/95520/Start-a-Dropship-Business-Blog-to-Boost-Sales-Build-Your-Brand#Comments0Start a Dropship Business Blog to Boost Sales & Build Your Brandhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/95520/Start-a-Dropship-Business-Blog-to-Boost-Sales-Build-Your-Brand<br><img id="img-1376104230874" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/blog.jpg" alt="dropship business blog" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you want to see your home business really take off, start a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> blog to boost sales and build your brand!<br><br>Using marketing strategies to grow and build your home dropshipping business is just good thinking all the way around. With a little work and effort, you can greatly increase traffic, boost sales, build your brand and work at maintaining great PR, too. <br><br>You have probably at least heard of social media marketing and may even have a page on Facebook and a Twitter account. This is wonderful and is the type of marketing and promotion that will reap big benefits for your home dropship business. <br><br>But, did you know that a blog is social media, too?<br><br>It’s true! A business blog for your ecommerce endeavor is considered social media marketing and can be enormously helpful to you if you are willing to put forth the time and effort required to do it right.<br><br><strong>The Benefits of a Blog</strong><br><br>First of all, a blog is defined by Wikipedia as a “web log” and basically, that is what it is, although not so much as when blogs were just starting up on the internet. In the beginning of blogging, most people maintained a strictly personal blog and kept this daily web log to chronicle life events and things of that nature. <br><br>As time went on and ecommerce blossomed, more and more businesses began to see the benefits of having a blog to keep in touch with customers and potential customers, increase sales and drive traffic.<br><br>A blog gives you a place to interact with others and provides a platform for you to provide information and education, even entertainment, to viewers. <br><br><strong>Blogging Basics</strong><br><br>If you want your blog to work for you, there are a few things you need to do:<br><br> <ul> <li>Blog consistently, on a regular basis. You should post a blog article at least every day, preferably, and more if you can manage it. The more the better. If you need to skip a day every now and then, no biggie. But try not to skip more than one day.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Keep your blog posts relevant but not too full of sales hype. In fact, this is a big no-no. A good rule of thumb, according to some master bloggers for ecommerce, is that your blog articles promoting your business should make up no more than about 15% or less of your total posts.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Try to have high quality blog posts as this is what will score you brownie points with Google. Especially since the Panda and Penguin updates, Google puts a premium on fresh, relevant, high quality content. Blogging is one of the best ways to provide this content to Google and keep your business high in the search engine results pages.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>You can use WordPress as your blogging platform, or find another good one. WordPress is free and immensely popular because it has so many bells and whistles. Setting up your blog is almost a no brainer and you can customize the style and design to suit yourself. If you don’t feel up to writing blogs for your dropship business, you can hire a freelancer to do them for you. The cost will be offset in more sales and higher rankings with search engines.</li> </ul> <br>Start a dropship business blog to boost sales and build your brand!<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-a6dd1d02-dfb5-4530-84ff-27798fadb6fe"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-a6dd1d02-dfb5-4530-84ff-27798fadb6fe" id="hs-cta-a6dd1d02-dfb5-4530-84ff-27798fadb6fe"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/a6dd1d02-dfb5-4530-84ff-27798fadb6fe"><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-a6dd1d02-dfb5-4530-84ff-27798fadb6fe" style="border-width:0px;" src="https://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/a6dd1d02-dfb5-4530-84ff-27798fadb6fe.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-a6dd1d02-dfb5-4530-84ff-27798fadb6fe"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=a6dd1d02-dfb5-4530-84ff-27798fadb6fe&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/95520/Start-a-Dropship-Business-Blog-to-Boost-Sales-Build-Your-Brand&bvt=rss">J.

You can do this by having well written, informative content that demonstrates your knowledge and understanding of your particular niche and products. You can also use social media platforms such as Twitter, face book and LinkedIn to post authoritative content. People tend to look up to businesses that show extensive knowledge about their own niche, and it helps to build trust, as well; which in turn helps to increase sales.</li> </ul> <br><br> <ul> <li>Use content to promote your dropship home business and build your brand. The days of “article farming” are over, thank goodness, so the last thing you want to do is plaster the internet with tons of poorly written content that offers little or no value to readers. Since the Penguin and Panda algorithm updates, this is a great way to get yourself blackballed with Google. But, you can use high quality content to your best advantage and it will help drive traffic to your website or listings; which translates to sales. Google loves fresh, relevant, high quality content. The more you provide, the higher your rankings in search results will be. Since research has shown that the average online shopper rarely goes past the first page of search results, you will help your dropship home business tremendously by being on that first page!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Beef up your opt-in email subscription list. If you don’t have one---do it now! Email marketing is not only extremely effective; it costs nothing if you make it a DIY effort. But even if you have to hire someone to write your marketing emails, you will gain more than enough in extra sales to offset the cost of a freelancer. To sweeten the pot and make visitors to your website willing to opt-in to your emails and newsletters, you might consider offering a decent incentive such as half price shipping or even free shipping if this is feasible. Obviously if you are dropshipping big heavy products, free shipping is not the incentive you will want to use.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Offer great coupons! According to <a href="http://www.internetretailer.com/2011/03/30/two-thirds-shoppers-use-web-coupons-study-finds " title="Internet Retailer" target="_blank">Internet Retailer</a>, a Morpace market research survey showed that:</li> </ul> <br><ol> <li>67% of shoppers have used coupons they downloaded and printed from the web.</li> <li>In a survey of 1,000 shoppers in mid-February, Morpace found that women and consumers with annual household incomes of at least $50,000 were most likely to use web coupons.</li> <li>71% percent of women and 59% of men use coupons from the Internet.</li> <li>71% percent of consumers who make more than $50,000 a year use them, compared with 61% of shoppers who make less than $50,000.</li> </ol><br>The moral of this little story is that most people love and use coupons. So, tempt them into shopping with you by offering valuable coupons. You don’t have to give away the store and remember; sometimes you have to spend a little money to make money!<br><br> <ul> <li>Develop a good understanding of your differentiators and what they mean to customers. Even if you are in a highly competitive niche, you should be able to find something that sets your dropship business apart from the others. Once you determine what your differentiators will be---build on them. Play it up! If you offer free return shipping, play it to the hilt. For example, if what differentiates your dropshipping home business from the others in the pack is superior customer service…let your customers know this. Bear in mind that your differentiator must be something that is actually beneficial to buyers. Otherwise it falls into that “so what?” factor and is useless.</li> </ul> <br>These 5 home business marketing tips to boost dropship sales can help you keep your ecommerce income going up, up, UP!<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/91805/5-Home-Business-Marketing-Tips-to-Boost-Dropship-Sales&bvt=rss">Greg ScottMon, 26 Nov 2012 01:39:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:91805http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/90979/7-Tips-to-Increase-Online-Dropship-Sales#Comments07 Tips to Increase Online Dropship Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/90979/7-Tips-to-Increase-Online-Dropship-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/eCommerce-Icon.jpg" alt="increase dropship sales" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Is there an ecommerce entrepreneur anywhere that isn’t interested in increasing online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> sales?<br><br>Well, provided they have a dropship business and work from home, that is. <br><br>A dropship business is one of the easiest and most efficient of any work from home enterprise you could possibly find. <br><br>It’s fast and extremely easy to set up and maintain, plus it’s low cost, which is appealing to many wannabe work from homers who are starting a business on the proverbial shoestring.<br><br>Now, let’s assume that you have your online home business up and running and now you need some tips to increase your online dropship sales. What can you do that will help drive traffic and increase sales?<br><br> <h3><strong>How to Increase Your Bottom Line</strong></h3> <br>There are a lot of things you can do to help increase online dropship sales.<br><br>Let’s start with those of you who have your own websites as opposed to using eBay or Amazon for your marketplace. Since those internet commerce mammoths have an enormous amount of traffic flowing through their sites every day, if you’re selling on there you won’t have to work as hard to get traffic since these sites are doing a lot of that for you.<br><br>Here are some basics that should stand you in good stead and help increase dropship sales:<br><br> <ul> <li>Since the advent of the Google Panda and Penguin updates, Google wants high quality, relevant content. This means that you can’t outsource some person to write scads of fractured English and weirdly phrased content for peanuts anymore as long as it’s stuffed with keywords. Google now actively frowns on this practice (thank goodness) so the days of “article farming” to boost rankings in SERPs is a thing of the past. Just provide fresh, relevant, high quality content and you’ll get higher search rankings; which will mean more traffic and consequently---more sales.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Using great marketing techniques will work wonders for your online dropship business! The beautiful thing about marketing for ecommerce is that much--or even all--of it, depending on your personal capabilities, can be done by you and not cost a penny! Email marketing, social media marketing…these are fabulous ways to increase traffic and sales!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Think global! When your dropship sales are online, the whole world is your oyster! Unlike traditional brick and mortar stores, you aren’t limited to mostly local traffic, but may have shoppers from all corners of the world. Make sure that your dropship product source is set up to ship globally, of course.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Make sure your dropship site is mobile friendly. This can’t be stressed enough! With more and more Road Warriors doing their shopping on mobile devices, it’s a case of snooze and you lose. So, if your site isn’t mobile accessible---get busy and get it up to speed before the big holiday shopping rush begins.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>If you don’t have a Facebook page for your dropship business…do it now! Once you get your page looking good, be sure to post to it regularly and include such things as promotions, contests, steals and deals. You should also install a Like widget on your dropship site so that shoppers can share with their social circle on Facebook. You might be surprised how many sales are made this way, since it’s a proven fact that people tend to buy under the influence of others.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Even if you have your own dropship website, it wouldn’t hurt and would almost definitely help to run some listings on eBay and/or Amazon. Bear in mind that these two giants of online marketplaces have a huge amount of traffic every day!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>Perform routine maintenance on your dropship site to make sure everything is running smoothly. The better and speedier your site, the less shopping cart abandonment you’ll have, which translates to more sales.</li> </ul> <br>Use these tips to help increase online dropship sales!<br><br><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/90979/7-Tips-to-Increase-Online-Dropship-Sales&bvt=rss">J.

That being said, online marketing is different in many ways than what would be done for a traditional brick and mortar business.<br><br>With an ecommerce business, all of your sales are online, so you must gear your marketing efforts toward the online community of shoppers. <br><br>Here are 5 tried and true marketing tips for your online dropshipping business:<br><br> <ul> <li>I. Keep your eye on the ball---What does this mean? It’s simple. Your main goal is to make sales. So, your focus should be on that more than anything else. Before you get all carried away with cutesy pages and overly long content that really doesn’t do one thing to advance visitors toward a purchase and checkout; remember that your overriding concern is to sell, sell, sell. Anything that detracts from that or doesn’t keep things moving toward that desired outcome when a visitor enters your sales funnel is extraneous and should be done away with. You don’t need it. Keep your eye on the ball and your goal of selling products.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>II. Think like a customer---What would you be looking for on your website or listing page if you were a customer? What would you expect to find? While there may be multiple answers to these questions, there are some givens that will apply to almost every visitor to your listings or web pages. People want to find what they’re looking for quickly and easily, be given enough information about it to make a purchasing decision, and then a fast checkout. Cut and dried. So, have a friend or relative browse your site as though they were a potential customer and go all the way through checkout. (You can void the sale, don’t worry.) If they run into problems or hit any snags, you need to correct the situation post haste.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>III. SEO is important for marketing---You may hear rumors that SEO is dead since Google has rolled out the Panda and Penguin updates. Don’t believe them, SEO is alive and kicking, and you need to use it wisely for best marketing of your online dropshipping business. Make sure you use prime keywords in titles, descriptions, alt tags, image tags, the whole enchilada. Using great SEO will make it much easier for your online dropshipping business products to be picked up by the search engine bots and get you ranked high in SERPs, or Search Engine Result Pages. So, be sure to utilize correct SEO.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>IV. Use product reviews---Internet retail research has shown that online consumers love reviews. As more and more people are turning to the internet for shopping, they are getting smarter and a lot savvier about checking out products by reading user reviews before buying. Don’t cheat on your reviews! If you’re selling a product that gets consistently bad reviews, you need to quit selling that product and replace it with a better performer. Be sure to let shoppers know when you do this. It boosts confidence if people see that you’re posting honest reviews and that you’re listening to what buyers have to say about your products and taking appropriate action accordingly, if need be.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li>V. Use a mixture of marketing methods---There is a world of opportunity online for someone willing to put in a little work on social media marketing and email marketing. In many cases, these types of marketing won’t even cost you anything because you may be able to do all of it yourself. But, even if you have to hire a freelancer to write your emails, for instance, the increased sales will make it well worth the expense.</li> </ul> <br>Use these marketing tips and tricks to boost sales in your online dropshipping business!<p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/90126/5-Marketing-Tips-Tricks-for-Your-Online-Dropshipping-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeTue, 02 Oct 2012 22:08:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:90126http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77082/Ecommerce-Dropship-News-5-Tips-for-Holiday-eMail-Marketing#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship News: 5 Tips for Holiday eMail Marketinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77082/Ecommerce-Dropship-News-5-Tips-for-Holiday-eMail-Marketing<br><img id="img-1353988661394" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/christmas%20couple-resized-600.jpg" alt="holiday email makreting dropship business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">Hopefully, if you have a home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business or other ecommerce enterprise, you are gearing up for the holiday season and including email marketing in your push to get your share of the increased traffic and sales on the World Wide Web. <br><br>While email marketing is a great way to build your ecommerce dropship business year round, if you focus on holiday marketing specifically during this prelude to the winter holidays, you can reap the benefits of the crowds of shoppers and flurry of e-tail buying.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/try-email-marketing--watch-your-sales-soar/" title="Click Here For a FREE eMail Marketing E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE eMail Marketing E-Book!</strong></a><br><br>Here are 5 tips to help your dropship business marketing emails during the holiday season:<br><br>1. Target your marketing emails based on past buying behavior of customers on your opt-in list. For example, if you sell pet supplies and you have customers who bought holiday pet stockings last season, send these buyers emails relating to pet stockings. It’s okay to mention other promotions and holiday specials, as well, but be sure to shine the spotlight on items they have purchased in the past. <br><br>2. Be festive! Dress up your holiday marketing emails with a festive holiday theme. This accomplishes a couple of things: it immediately tells recipients that your email pertains to the holidays, plus it helps to put people in a holiday mood.<br><br>3.&nbsp; Consult the Ghost of Christmas Past. In other words, look at your sales and marketing stats for the holidays of yesteryear. Notice which promotions and specials seemed to generate the most sales and which basically fizzled. Check to see which of your holiday marketing emails got the best response and use the ones that performed the best as a sort of template for this year’s batch. If something works---stick with it!<br><br>4. Stay consistent with your promotions straight across the board. This means that your email marketing should correspond with your marketing and promotions on all of the social sites you frequent such as Twitter and Facebook, as well as your website and other platforms.<br><br>5. If you don’t already have a holiday email marketing campaign all mapped out, do so without further delay! The time will get away from you before you know it and the window of opportunity to make the most of holiday sales will close before you even get started.<br><br>Use these holiday email marketing tips for your dropship home business and watch your bottom line increase!<br><span class="hs-cta-wrapper" id="hs-cta-wrapper-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"> <span class="hs-cta-node hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" id="hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"> <a href="http://cta-redirect.hubspot.com/cta/redirect/41336/5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" \=""><img class="hs-cta-img" id="hs-cta-img-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263" style="border-width:0px;" src="http://no-cache.hubspot.com/cta/default/41336/5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263.png"></a> </span> <script type="text/javascript"> (function(){ var s='hubspotutk',r,c=((r=new RegExp('(^|; )'+s+'=([^;]*)').exec(document.cookie))?r[2]:''),w=window;w[s]=w[s]||c, hsjs=document.createElement("script"),el=document.getElementById("hs-cta-5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263"); hsjs.type = "text/javascript";hsjs.async = true; hsjs.src = "//cta-service-cms2.hubspot.com/cs/loader.js?pg=5d914ef1-8804-4875-b047-7890c8bb1263&pid=41336&hsutk=" + encodeURIComponent(c); (document.getElementsByTagName("head")[0]||document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0]).appendChild(hsjs); try{el.style.visibility="hidden";}catch(err){} setTimeout(function() {try{el.style.visibility="visible";}catch(err){}}, 2500); })(); </script> </span><br><br>If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/32569/The-Benefits-of-Twitter-for-Your-eCommerce-Dropship-Business-Blog" title="The Benefits of Twitter for Your eCommerce Dropship Business Blog" target="_blank"><strong>The Benefits of Twitter for Your eCommerce Dropship Business Blog</strong></a><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/77082/Ecommerce-Dropship-News-5-Tips-for-Holiday-eMail-Marketing&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeWed, 02 Nov 2011 16:47:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:77082http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/76117/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Social-Media-Marketing-Boot-Camp-Basics#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Social Media Marketing Boot Camp Basicshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/76117/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Social-Media-Marketing-Boot-Camp-Basics<br>If <img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/markwting.jpg" alt="dropship social media marketing" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">you are just starting out in a home <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business, you may not be at all familiar with social media marketing and might appreciate a few basics to help you leverage this effective and economic method of growing your online business.<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/put-the-power-of-social-media-to-work-for-you-2/" title="Click Here For a FREE Social Media Marketing E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Social Media Marketing E-Book!</strong></a><br><br>Here are some basics about social media marketing geared toward beginners:<br><br> <ul> <li><strong>Facebook</strong>---Facebook is one of the largest social media sites on the planet wit a current membership of over 850 million and still growing strong. Originally, Facebook was started to allow personal interaction, and it is still very strong in that area. However, in recent years it has expanded into an ecommerce platform as well and can be enormously helpful in building your dropship business. You can have contests, promotions, freebie give-aways, polls, surveys and so on to encourage Facebook members to visit and “Like” your business Fan Page. By adding links to your dropship website or items listed on eBay, Amazon, Bonanza or whatever venue you are using, you can greatly increase traffic and sales. Facebook is free to join and use.</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li><strong>Twitter</strong>---Twitter is another social media site that is booming. Twitter messages are short, only 140 characters, and are called tweets. Celebrities tweet on Twitter. Many of the Big Box corporations maintain an active Twitter presence. Even the president tweets. You should, too. It is free to join and use and there are numerous free apps and services to help you make the most of your marketing efforts on Twitter. Your dropship business will benefit from being part of Twitter!</li> </ul> <br> <ul> <li><strong>Blogging</strong>---Although not a social media site, per se, blogging for your dropship business can be considered part and parcel of social media marketing. You can use a blog hosting service such as WordPress that won’t cost you a dime and blog away about your dropship products as well as relevant topics that ecommerce entrepreneurs might enjoy reading.</li> </ul> <br>The main thing to remember about using any of these three methods of social media marketing is to be consistent. To be effective and yield the best results, you should post to your Facebook Fan Page at least once a day and ditto for Twitter. Ideally, your business blog should be updated with fresh, relevant content on a daily basis. You don’t have to write an epic masterpiece. In fact, long blog articles tend to lose a reader’s attention. Stick with posts about 350-500 words long and you’ll be fine.<br><br>Besides helping win friends (and customers) and influence people on social media sites and with your blog, you will also enhance and elevate your rankings in Google and other search engine results pages.

There were over 800 million users on Facebook as of July 2011, worldwide. Just think of what a humongous group of potential buyers that is! You can leverage the power of social media and Facebook with only a few simple steps and a commitment to make the necessary effort to have your social media marketing pay off for your home dropship business.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/put-the-power-of-social-media-to-work-for-you-2/" title="Click Here For a FREE Social Media Marketing E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Social Media Marketing E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />Here are some handy tips to help you use Facebook to grow and build your home ecommerce dropship business:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Integrate ecommerce into your Facebook store by having contests that request Likes in order to be entered, or freebies that work the same way. Many big corporations are doing this with resounding success. You can, too.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Post ads and details of promotions on your Facebook wall with a link that sends viewers to your Facebook store pages. Use the Facebook Fans API, you can combine promotions with links to the product within your Facebook store and make it easy for visitors to make a purchase right then and there.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Using the Share, Like and Reviews features facilitates viewers passing the world along about your products, promotions, contests, freebies or whatever to others within their circle. Ditto for reviews. Reviews are also great because they get viewers involved and interacting with you!</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>The biggest majority of online users are still wary of divulging their personal and financial info on the internet. This is especially true if it is a procedure that they are not accustomed to. So, to increase buyer confidence and overcome fears about giving information necessary for a purchase, don&rsquo;t direct would-be customers to your dropship website from Facebook if they want to make a purchase. This isn&rsquo;t necessary and will cost you a lot of sales. Display the same trust &amp; security symbols on your Facebook store pages as you do on your dropship website, and integrate your website&rsquo;s preferred payment method---Paypal is one most users are comfortable and familiar with---so that a purchase can be completed on the spot.</li> </ul> <br />Using these tips for social media marketing and ecommerce on Facebook will help build dropship sales!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may find this one useful: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/29570/Social-Media-Marketing-FREE-Twitter-Apps-for-eCommerce" title="Social Media Marketing: FREE Twitter Apps for eCommerce" target="_blank"><strong>Social Media Marketing: FREE Twitter Apps for eCommerce</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/75750/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Social-Media-Marketing-With-Facebook&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleyTue, 18 Oct 2011 16:07:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:75750http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/75621/Home-Business-Tips-to-Help-Boost-Dropshipping-Ecommerce-Sales#Comments0Home Business Tips to Help Boost Dropshipping Ecommerce Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/75621/Home-Business-Tips-to-Help-Boost-Dropshipping-Ecommerce-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/homeoffice3rev.jpg" border="0" alt="dropshipping home business tips" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Anyone with a home business in <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropshipping" target="_blank"><strong>dropshipping</strong></a> sales or another ecommerce business is probably always eager to get tips and tricks to help boost those sales!<br /><br />If your sales are lagging, them trying some helpful hints to speed things up a bit can only come in handy, and even if your sales are booming, it&rsquo;s never a good idea to get complacent and rest on your laurels.

Many website design gurus and internet retail specialists firmly believe that your home page is the most important page of your entire website.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/2-ecommerce-marketing-strategies-to-grow-your-business/" title="Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />Or, let&rsquo;s put it this way: if it isn&rsquo;t, it should be.<br /><br /><strong>The Importance of a Home Page</strong><br /><br />As mentioned above, your home page is usually the most viewed page of any other on your website. Just as it is in real life situations, first impressions are crucial! Think of your real home and imagine what a visitor would think if they peeped inside your front door and everything was a jumbled up disaster area&hellip;..dirty&hellip;.messy&hellip;.disorganized. <br /><br />Would visitors want to enter such a place? Probably not. The situation is the same with your website home page. It needs to be neat and well organized, user friendly and welcoming to visitors. Otherwise, there is a strong possibility a visitor will simply hit the back button and exit immediately.<br /><br />That&rsquo;s how your conversion rate goes South, not to mention your sales and profits.<br /><br />Here are some simple but effective tips for a great home page:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Use clean 2.0 web design with your navigation either on top or on the left side of the page. Have a pleasing, harmonious color scheme without clashing colors or flash unless you feel you absolutely must have it. Research has shown that dark text color against a light background is easiest for the human eye to read, so bear that in mind and use a font that everyone will have, as well. You might also consider giving visitors the option to enlarge the text of your home page.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Keep your home page consistent in letting visitors know what you&rsquo;re all about, but do update content frequently. After all, the search engines love fresh, relevant content so this will help boost your rankings in search results, plus your returning visitors will be less likely to get bored with the same-old, same-old content.</li> </ul> <br /><br /> <ul> <li>Offer informative content. When new visitors land on your home page, they are generally there because they have an interest in whatever it is you&rsquo;re offering. Basically, they have unanswered questions and it&rsquo;s up to you to answer those questions right up front. Briefly describe who you are and what you are providing, be it goods, services or whatever. Make it clear to viewers what they can expect to find within your web pages.</li> </ul> <br />Use these tips to spruce up your dropship home page and watch your sales increase!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/61026/A-Strong-Call-to-Action-Will-Boost-Dropship-Sales" title="A Strong Call to Action Will Boost Dropship Sales!" target="_blank"><strong>A Strong Call to Action Will Boost Dropship Sales!</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70887/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-How-to-Have-a-Great-Home-Page&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleyWed, 24 Aug 2011 16:25:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:70887http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70516/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Improve-Delivery-of-Marketing-Emails#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Improve Delivery of Marketing Emailshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70516/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Improve-Delivery-of-Marketing-Emails<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/newspaper.jpg" border="0" alt="emial marketimg ecommerce dropship" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Email marketing is a great way to build your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business and it will help your efforts to improve your delivery success.<br /><br />Deliverability is a term that crops up frequently in reference to email marketing. <br /><br /><strong>What is Deliverability?</strong><br /><br />Deliverability simply means the ability of any email you send to actually be delivered to the recipient. You can invest quite a lot of time, thought and possibly even money if you hire someone to write your marketing emails&nbsp; into coming up with a killer piece of email copy that will hopefully convert to increased traffic and sales for your dropship business&hellip;..but if this piece of marketing genius never makes it to the intended target&rsquo;s inbox, it&rsquo;s a total flop.<br /><br />Here are a few tips to help you improve the deliverability of your marketing emails:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Use the Reputation Triplet. This is the combination of three things that make up your reputation within the realm of email marketing. These three components are:</li> </ul> <br /><ol> <li>Content</li> <li>Email address</li> <li>IP address</li> </ol><br />In order to avoid having your marketing emails dumped straight into spam folders, these three vital components need to be spotless. <br /><br /> <ul> <li>The SPF, or Sender Policy Framework, is how an IP address is authenticated. This is accomplished through a DNS service. A lot of corporate domains authenticate IP addresses in an effort to protect themselves from spy ware and viruses, and many email services won&rsquo;t accept email from certain domains.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Use a dedicated domain for sending marketing emails. Using a shared domain is inadvisable.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Your content needs to be of high quality, nothing that the spam filters will interpret as gibberish. Although the word &ldquo;free&rdquo; is very powerful in marketing, it is also a word that triggers the spam filters of many email services. So try to avoid using it in the title line if possible. The good news is that if you build up your Reputation Triplet, your emails may have enough instant credibility to clear this hurdle even if you do use this buzz word.</li> </ul> <br />Deliverability is key to the success of email marketing campaigns for your ecommerce dropship home business.<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/34050/Dropship-Tips-Working-at-Home-Habits-of-Highly-Effective-People" title="Dropship Tips: Working at Home---Habits of Highly Effective People" target="_blank"><strong>Dropship Tips: Working at Home---Habits of Highly Effective People</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/70516/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Improve-Delivery-of-Marketing-Emails&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleySat, 20 Aug 2011 16:00:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:70516http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/69108/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Pointers-for-Video-Marketing#Comments1Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Pointers for Video Marketing http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/69108/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Pointers-for-Video-Marketing<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/movies.jpg" border="0" alt="video marketing dropship ecommerce business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Video marketing can be a big part of your social media marketing efforts and help to increase both traffic and sales to your <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce enterprise. <br /><br />YouTube is, of course, the name that immediately springs to mind for most of us when we think of video marketing. And there is no doubt that video marketing on YouTube is an extremely effective weapon in your arsenal of targeted marketing techniques.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/2-ecommerce-marketing-strategies-to-grow-your-business/" title="Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />However, you can also use video marketing in other places besides YouTube to help boost your business and build your brand.<br /><br />Here are some pointers to help you use video social media marketing effectively in your dropship home business:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Be choosy about who stars in your marketing videos. If you are a one person business, you can surely scare up somebody with a big smile to be your video cheerleader and star in your productions. If you would prefer to have the starring role yourself because you think you can make a better video with more enthusiasm and knowledge than anybody else, you don&rsquo;t even need a second person to aim the camera if you have one with a timer.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Now, bearing in mind that you can be the lone star of your marketing video, or only have one person appearing, you may also include others in your productions if possible, at least occasionally. A video would be a great place to show an interview with another person about your dropship business. It might be someone who is thinking of starting a dropship home business themselves and you could go for a question and answer session about how to get started.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Have various types of marketing videos. For instance, you could do how-tos that might show the process of adding your dropship products onto eBay or Amazon. Tutorials are also nice, and people appreciate instructional material that spells something out in one neat package.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Have a whole series of interconnected videos, sort of like sequels to the main video. This will keep viewers coming back for more.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Use videos as part of your social media marketing efforts. Include videos on your Facebook page, for example.</li> </ul> <br />Video marketing can help tremendously in the growth and success of your ecommerce dropship business. <br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/33339/Customer-Service-is-the-Key-to-Success-in-Dropship-Sales" title="Customer Service is the Key to Success in Dropship Sales" target="_blank"><strong>Customer Service is the Key to Success in Dropship Sales</strong><br /></a><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/69108/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Pointers-for-Video-Marketing&bvt=rss">Greg ScottSat, 06 Aug 2011 16:20:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:69108http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/69030/Dropship-Jewelry-and-Watches-for-Big-Profits-in-a-Home-Business#Comments1Dropship Jewelry and Watches for Big Profits in a Home Businesshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/69030/Dropship-Jewelry-and-Watches-for-Big-Profits-in-a-Home-Business<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/jewlery.JPG" border="0" alt="dropship jewelry and watches" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />You can reasonably expect big profits if you <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/jewelry-watches-c-281.html" title="dropship jewelry and watches" target="_blank"><strong>dropship jewelry and watches</strong></a> in your home business. <br /><br />Jewelry is always a very hungry niche with literally millions of consumers around the world creating a tremendous demand.

However, this is probably way too broad a niche to try and cover all of it and you would be well advised to drill down within this huge niche to find and develop a smaller, more manageable sub-niche.<br /><br />For instance, you could specialize in the dropship jewelry and watches sales of all gold or all silver products. There is an enormous demand for both types. Or, you might consider selling all wedding and engagement jewelry, another very hot niche year round.<br /><br />To drill down even deeper to another profitable strata of the dropship jewelry and watches niche, you might think about focusing your sales efforts on one particular type of jewelry.<br /><br />You might, for example, sell earrings only. Alternatively, you might decide to stick to selling rings and nothing else. Or necklaces, or sports watches, and so on. <br /><br />Sales of fashion jewelry and watches are always good. Fashion jewelry is basically costume jewelry and is always a best seller on sites such as Amazon and eBay.<br /><br />Again, this is a niche with predictably solid sales and traffic all through the year and even more so during the winter holidays and close to Cupid&rsquo;s big day.<br /><br />Dropship jewelry and watches can be an extremely lucrative niche for you with an assured target demographic world wide of both genders and all ages.<br /><br />Check out the great selection of high quality dropship jewelry and watches available from Drop Ship Access and start making big profits with these hot sellers!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <div class="TitleEditSpan" id="98395_title_span"> <div id="bb-container"> <div class="post"> <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64129/7-Tips-for-Writing-a-Call-to-Action-That-Will-Boost-Dropship-Sales" title="7 Tips for Writing a Call to Action That Will Boost Dropship Sales" target="_blank"><strong>7 Tips for Writing a Call to Action That Will Boost Dropship Sales</strong></a></p> </div> </div> </div> <br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/69030/Dropship-Jewelry-and-Watches-for-Big-Profits-in-a-Home-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeFri, 05 Aug 2011 16:36:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:69030http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68802/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Internet-Marketing#Comments2Ecommerce Dropship Tips: SEO for Internet Marketinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68802/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Internet-Marketing<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/markwting.JPG" border="0" alt="SEO marjketing ecommerce dropship sales" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Are you using best SEO practices for internet marketing to help build your ecommerce <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> business?<br /><br />SEO is absolutely vital to the success or failure of any ecommerce endeavor, be it an online home dropship business or other type of e-tail enterprise. If you fail to hone your SEO skills and don&rsquo;t work diligently to always stay up to date on current best practices and changes made to Google and the other search engines that will impact how you use SEO---you will be left behind while your competitors sail on to success.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/2-ecommerce-marketing-strategies-to-grow-your-business/" title="Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Ecommerce Marketing Strategies E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />So, always make SEO best practices a priority. It will only require a few minutes of your time every week to check the World Wide Web for newest SEO information. In fact, you could set up an RSS feed on this topic and then you wouldn&rsquo;t even have to bother to search for news you need to know about.<br /><br />Here are some tips for using SEO wisely for internet marketing:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Link back to your own website. For example, when you add new website content, which hopefully will be often; be sure to include links back to relevant pages on your website. The search engine crawlers look for links within your content, so make sure there are plenty for them to find.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Make full use of your images by having each image description incorporate as many of your prime keywords as possible. This is a great way to use SEO in a way that Google and the other search engines smile upon.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Try to avoid using Flash as much as possible as it is difficult for the search engines to link to the page. If you feel that you must use Flash on your dropship website, be sure to add SEO rich text and/or links underneath or above the Flash image.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Get the most out of your site map. Use your keywords in your site map for best SEO practices. This accomplishes two things: makes it easier for visitors to your dropship site to find what they are looking for and easier for the search engines to find and access your pages.</li> </ul> <br />Using SEO best practices for internet marketing can vastly improve your dropship sales and increase your home business profits!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one:&nbsp;&nbsp;<a><strong title="E-Commerce &quot;Bad Words&quot; That Will Cost You Dropship Sales "> </strong></a> <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/34829/E-Commerce-Bad-Words-That-Will-Cost-You-Dropship-Sales" title="E-Commerce &quot;Bad Words&quot; That Will Cost You Dropship Sales" target="_blank"><strong>E-Commerce "Bad Words" That Will Cost You Dropship Sales</strong></a></p> <br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68802/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-SEO-for-Internet-Marketing&bvt=rss">Hope WhitleyWed, 03 Aug 2011 16:01:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:68802http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68565/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-More-Ways-to-Increase-Sales#Comments5Ecommerce Dropship Tips: More Ways to Increase Saleshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68565/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-More-Ways-to-Increase-Sales<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/Daryl-money-womanrev-resized-600.jpg" border="0" alt="increase dropship ecommerce home business sales" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Anyone with a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other sort of ecommerce business is probably always on the lookout for ways to increase sales. <br /><br />After all, sales mean money and money is what it&rsquo;s all about in a home dropship business!

Here are some tips to help you minimize losing sales when it is right down to the wire in the checkout process:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Sweeten the pot with a coupon code. Internet research has shown that many potential customers who are wavering between pulling the trigger on a purchase or hitting the back button and exiting your website will often go ahead and buy if they are offered some type of coupon code at the point of checkout. For example, you could offer flat rate shipping, or even free shipping if that is feasible. The main thing is to give a person some reason for going ahead and buying from you right there and then.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Allow shoppers to edit their cart contents without a big rigmarole. If someone decides, for instance, that they want a sweater in pine green instead of chocolate brown, let them change the color without deleting the first sweater and then going back to the product page to add the green sweater and then starting the entire checkout process all over again. It is so annoying when that happens and an amazing number of websites do this. Editing a shopping cart should quick and easy!</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Show product images next to items in the shopping cart. This will help a lot in the battle of overcoming doubt and hesitation about buying. Many shoppers are prone to procrastination and will often back out of the sale even if they have already added something to their shopping cart. By keeping the image right there before them, you make it more difficult to back out and more tempting to go ahead and complete the purchase.</li> </ul> <br />These tips will help you improve your conversion rate and make more sales for your ecommerce dropship home business. <br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/31103/eCommerce-Do-You-Have-a-Customer-Retention-Plan" title="eCommerce: Do You Have a Customer Retention Plan?" target="_blank"><strong>eCommerce: Do You Have a Customer Retention Plan?</strong></a><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68493/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Boost-Sales-with-Streamlined-Checkout&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSun, 31 Jul 2011 22:05:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:68493http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68487/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Easy-Ways-to-Improve-Your-Bounce-Rate#Comments0Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Easy Ways to Improve Your Bounce Ratehttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68487/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Easy-Ways-to-Improve-Your-Bounce-Rate<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/bounce.JPG" border="0" alt="ways to improve ecommerce dropship bounce rate" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Improving the bounce rate of your<a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title=" dropship " target="_blank"><strong> dropship</strong> </a>or other type of ecommerce sales can help you enormously, boosting sales and making your business much more successful.<br /><br /><strong>What is a Bounce Rate?</strong><br /><br />Just in case you&rsquo;re a beginning online entrepreneur and unfamiliar with the term &ldquo;bounce rate,&rdquo; here is a simple definition for you:<br /><br />Bounce Rate is an internet marketing term and refers to the number of visitors who arrive at your site and then immediately leave, without viewing any other pages except the one he or she landed on.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/dropshiping-niche-toolkit/" title="Click Here for a FREE Dropship Niche Toolkit!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here for a FREE Dropship Niche Toolkit!</strong></a><br /><br />Improving your bounce rate is important! If you are doing a great job of driving traffic to your website but a lousy job of keeping visitors there for a while---long enough to buy something, hopefully---then you have a very big problem that must be corrected post haste.<br /><br /><strong>What Causes a High Bounce Rate?</strong><br /><br />Your website bounce rate can be affected by a number of factors, but generally speaking, in most cases if you have a high bounce rate it is because your landing pages are not following through on the promise you made to attract a visitor. <br /><br />In other words, if a visitor does a search for the phrase &ldquo;silver jewelry&rdquo; and then clicks on your link about silver jewelry in Google&rsquo;s search pages, only to arrive at your landing page for that link to find a whole page full of content about how to clean gold jewelry but nothing about your silver jewelry products---BOING! They&rsquo;ll probably bounce right back to Google and try somebody else&rsquo;s link. <br /><br />So, as you can imagine, it is essential that your landing pages always follow through with your promise if you want to improve your bounce rate.<br /><br />Another great way to improve your bounce rate is to dispense with a slow loading, long intro that provides no real info about the product or service the visitor clicked on to land on your website. A lot of companies do this, but the smart ones include a clickable link to &ldquo;Skip Intro.&rdquo; In many cases, visitors don&rsquo;t have the time or inclination to sit through a long intro, regardless of how pretty it is. They want to get right down to brass tacks as soon as possible.<br /><br />Here is another tip to improve your bounce rate: Make your content easy to read. Forget using psychedelic designs and color schemes for your text. Internet studies have conclusively shown that the human eye is best able to read dark text on a light background. So, stick to that and you won&rsquo;t lose as many visitors that are leaving because they have become frustrated with having to work too hard to decipher your text and content. <br /><br />Improving your bounce rate will help boost your ecommerce dropship home business sales and profits!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/56469/DropShip-Tips-Benefits-of-a-Home-Business" title="DropShip Tips: Benefits of a Home Business" target="_blank"><strong>DropShip Tips: Benefits of a Home Business</strong></a><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/68487/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Easy-Ways-to-Improve-Your-Bounce-Rate&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeSun, 31 Jul 2011 19:11:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:68487http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/66182/Dropship-Childrens-Books-for-a-Great-Niche-Big-Profits#Comments1Dropship Childrens Books for a Great Niche & Big Profitshttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/66182/Dropship-Childrens-Books-for-a-Great-Niche-Big-Profits<br><img id="img-1349236992557" src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/bookskids.JPG" alt="dropship childrens books" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" border="0">If you’re looking for a great niche for online sales, you might be interested in checking into the possibility of <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/books-childrens-books-c-267_279.html" title="dropship childrens books" target="_blank"><strong>dropship childrens books</strong></a> sales for big profits!<br><br>Childrens books have been around for thousands of years as parents have long enjoyed reading stories to their little ones almost as much as the children love being read to!<br><br><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/dropshiping-niche-toolkit/" title="Click Here for Your FREE Dropship Niche Toolkit!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here for Your FREE Dropship Niche Toolkit!</strong></a><br><br>For older kids that are able to read, childrens books offer a whole world to explore and learn about through reading such famous and beloved stories as Jack and the Beanstalk, Alice in Wonderland, Black Beauty, Treasure Island and many, many more.<br><br>One thing you can be sure of when you choose to dropship childrens books is that you will have a huge target market for this particular niche.

Google smiles on websites with lots of good links and staying on the good side of Google should be of paramount importance to anyone with a home dropship business or other online venture.<br /><br />Now, please keep in mind that this only applies to good, high quality links. If you have a slew of spammy links connected to crummy websites, Google will judge you by the company you keep and your rankings in search will fall accordingly.<br /><br />You don&rsquo;t want this.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/dropshiping-niche-toolkit/" title="Click here For a FREE Dropship Niche Toolkit!" target="_blank"><strong>Click here For a FREE Dropship Niche Toolkit!</strong></a><br /><br />In order to get good quality links, you should focus on acquiring them in a natural way.<br /><br />What does this mean? When you build links in a natural way, they come in as a sort of slow trickle because you are getting them from others who are sincerely interested in your website, niche or maybe even your dropship business blog articles.<br /><br />An unnatural way to build links is when you pay one of those notorious link building farms and get 25,000 links in a day or so. This is not natural, and don&rsquo;t think Google or the other search engines will be tricked into thinking it was.<br /><br />What are some good ways to build high quality, natural links for your home dropship business?<br /><br /> <ul> <li>Have a blog: Having a blog which is kept updated with fresh, relevant content is one of the very best ways to acquire high quality links in a natural manner. Remember that the more blog content you post, the more attention you&rsquo;ll get from the search engines, so keep it coming and keep it interesting so that people will want to read it.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Social media: If you have a Facebook page for your dropship website or sales, which hopefully you do, you can imbed a link to your blog and your website. This is another great way of building links. You can also imbed a widget in your blog that directs viewers to your Facebook page. So this is a door that swings both ways and either way is to your advantage!</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Write articles: Writing and submitting articles to various article directories is an excellent way to build quality links! Use a good service such as Ezines, write a great article about your dropship products or business, be sure to fill in the resource and bio boxes, and watch those links come in!</li> </ul> <br />Building links is very important to help build and grow your online dropship business!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/34054/How-to-Choose-a-Great-Dropshipping-Niche" title="How to Choose a Great Dropshipping Niche" target="_blank"><strong>How to Choose a Great Dropshipping Niche</strong></a></p> <br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64392/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Building-Links-to-Build-Your-Business&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeMon, 27 Jun 2011 16:12:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:64392http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64362/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Have-a-Facebook-Contest-to-Build-Your-Brand#Comments2Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Have a Facebook Contest to Build Your Brandhttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64362/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Have-a-Facebook-Contest-to-Build-Your-Brand<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/contest.JPG" border="0" alt="Facebook contest dropship business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Chances are you are already doing some social media marketing on Facebook if you have a<a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title=" dropship" target="_blank"><strong> dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business, but have you thought about having a contest to liven things up a bit?<br /><br />Most human beings love contests!<br /><br />Dogs, cats, horses and other animals may like contests, too. It&rsquo;s hard to say as they can&rsquo;t talk and tell us and besides---since our four legged friends can&rsquo;t be our friends on Facebook, we don&rsquo;t need to factor them into this sort of marketing effort, anyhow. <br /><br />So, moving right along&hellip;.most people enjoy contests and the prospect of winning something. As an added benefit, contests and the possibility of being a winner is also something that many of your existing dropship customers, as well as anyone who sees your contest posted on your blog, website or Facebook page; will pass along and share with others in their social circle such as friends, family and coworkers.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/jump-on-the-social-media-bandwagon/" title="Click Here for a FREE Social Media Marketing E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here for a FREE Social Media Marketing E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />If you have a contest on Facebook to promote your ecommerce dropship business and build your brand, you can almost certainly count on gaining some new friends to sweeten the pot!<br /><br />What Kind of Contest?<br /><br />That&rsquo;s essentially up to you. Give away something from your dropship business that won&rsquo;t cost you too dearly, but don&rsquo;t be a cheapskate and try to have a great contest by having a prize nobody wants.<br /><br />Bear in mind that Facebook has rules about contests and promotions that must be adhered to. These rules were relaxed considerably last year when Facebook stopped requiring those who wanted to have a contest or promotion to get prior approval. <br /><br />Still, there are a few reasonable guidelines to follow that can be found <a href="http://www.facebook.com/promotions_guidelines.php" title="here" target="_blank">here</a>.&nbsp; <br /><br />Once you have familiarized yourself with the rules and regulations and have decided what prize or prizes you plan to offer from your dropship products or other goodies, you can start setting up your Facebook contest. <br /><br />Scads of the big mega corporations and brands that are household names such as Nabisco, Ford, Johnson &amp; Johnson and many more are having giveaways on Facebook. To have a chance of winning, you are usually required to &ldquo;Like&rdquo; the page. You should probably follow their example. They have whole teams of professional social media marketers that really know what they&rsquo;re doing. So if they think this is the best way to go, you would be well advised to follow their lead.<br /><br />Think of how this will get your brand out there and promote your online dropship or other ecommerce business!<br /><br />To set up your contest, just login to your Facebook dropship business page and enter the promotion details such as the prize/s, dates to enter and so on. Be aware that you are limited to 420 characters on your status updates, so keep it brief.<br /><br />Once it&rsquo;s all laid out the way you want it, click &ldquo;Share&rdquo; and Bob&rsquo;s your uncle--your Facebook dropship business contest is underway!<br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one: <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/59541/Marketing-Your-Drop-Ship-Business-3-Facebook-Mistakes-to-Avoid" title="Marketing Your Drop Ship Business: 3 Facebook Mistakes to Avoid" target="_blank"><strong>Marketing Your Drop Ship Business: 3 Facebook Mistakes to Avoid</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64362/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Have-a-Facebook-Contest-to-Build-Your-Brand&bvt=rss">Greg ScottSun, 26 Jun 2011 16:12:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:64362http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64245/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Two-Great-Facebook-Apps-for-Marketing#Comments3Ecommerce Dropship Tips: Two Great Facebook Apps for Marketinghttp://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/64245/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-Two-Great-Facebook-Apps-for-Marketing<br><img src="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/Portals/41336/images/dontworrybehappy2.jpg" border="0" alt="Facebook marketing dropship business" class="alignLeft" style="float: left;" />Anyone with a <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com/" title="dropship" target="_blank"><strong>dropship</strong></a> or other ecommerce business should be doing social media marketing and Facebook is one of the best social sites available for this purpose.<br /><br />Facebook has a lot of apps available for you to use, but some are better than others for marketing and promoting your business.<br /><br /><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/use-social-media-marketing-to-increase-sales/" title="Click Here For a FREE Social Media Marketing E-Book!" target="_blank"><strong>Click Here For a FREE Social Media Marketing E-Book!</strong></a><br /><br />If you are new to social media marketing and just setting up a Facebook page for your dropship business, you want to be sure to keep your personal profile completely separate from your professional profile, for reasons which should be obvious to you.<br /><br />There may be situations in life where you can combine business with pleasure, but Facebook probably isn&rsquo;t one of them.<br /><br />So, let&rsquo;s assume that you have moved past the initial steps and are now in the process of setting up a Facebook page for your ecommerce business. You will see a link for &ldquo;More Useful Apps.&rdquo;<br /><br />Click that link.<br /><br />This will take you to a page with various free apps you can use to enhance your Facebook business page. You may want to use one or all of them, but if you don&rsquo;t decide to use any others, do use these two:<br /><br /> <ul> <li>iFrame Tab Application</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Social RSS</li> </ul> <br />What are these apps?<br /><br />Static FBML is phased out on Facebook, so you will need to use the iFrame tab application to generate XFBML tag codes for things such as Like Buttons. To get the codes, simply navigate to Facebook&rsquo;s Social Plugins page.<br /><br />Once you have arrived at the Social Plugins page, you can choose which tag you want, enter the options on that particular tag&rsquo;s page and then click &ldquo;Get Code.&rdquo; <br />Many people report that they like this new method better than the old FBML.<br /><br />The second great app for Facebook is called Social RSS. <br /><br />Social RSS will let you add your blog RSS feeds to your Facebook wall, boxes tab or a dedicated tab on your Facebook Page.

You need a Master Plan and a daily/weekly plan that may, of course, change from week to week as your business evolves. If you don&rsquo;t have a track to run on, it&rsquo;s all too easy to veer off course!</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>While it&rsquo;s nice to be able to sell the things you are passionately interested in, it may not always be feasible if you want to achieve financial success. For example, if you have an almost obsessive interest in unusually marked lady bug shells, chances are that you are in the minority. Fascinating though it may be to you, it&rsquo;s unlikely many others will share your interest. So, sell what the market demands, not just what you want to sell.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Strive continually to keep your operating costs as low as possible. Remember, these costs eat into your bottom line. Always shop around to find the best deals on the things required to run your dropship business. Once you locate these rock bottom prices---don&rsquo;t let them rest on their laurels! From time to time, compare prices again in the things and services you use the most. Chances are there is a new kid on the block with comparable products at lower prices.</li> </ul> <br /> <ul> <li>Get some money coming in ASAP! One of the main reasons home businesses fail is that people fail to get a cash flow right away. While it may not be possible to do this in some ecommerce businesses, you can definitely do this with a dropship business. So, get started selling your wholesale products right away so that you have cash flow right up front.</li> </ul> <br />Use these tips to help you make money and be successful in your ecommerce dropship business! <br /><br />If you liked this article, you may also like this one:&nbsp; <p class="title"><a href="http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/53002/Dropship-Tips-How-to-Use-SEO-to-Maximize-Your-Facebook-Presence" title="Dropship Tips: How to Use SEO to Maximize Your Facebook Presence" target="_blank"><strong>Dropship Tips: How to Use SEO to Maximize Your Facebook Presence</strong></a></p> <br /><br /><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Start your own online <a href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com" mce_href="http://www.dropshipaccess.com">dropship</a> business today!<br></p> <img src="http://track.hubspot.com/__ptq.gif?a=41336&k=14&bu=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/&r=http://blog.dropshipaccess.com/bid/63623/Ecommerce-Dropship-Tips-For-Money-Making-Success&bvt=rss">Amanda BrookeMon, 13 Jun 2011 18:12:00 GMTf1397696-738c-4295-afcd-943feb885714:63623
