Running an ecommerce business has plenty of advantages over other types of companies. You can do it from anywhere with an internet connection. You don't have the overhead of maintaining a storefront, and you don't need to fret over the ideal location of said storefront. But that doesn't mean it comes without its own distinct set of challenges.…

    Hi Nadav,

    Great article and tips! I know many that have eCommerce stores and can benefit from these techniques. As someone who is a freelancer, I can see myself using these techniques to further my own business. Pinterest is like the ultimate "go to" now for searching products and diy. Crazy how we once googled, now we pin!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Love the tips.

    I use Pinterest and enjoy it, but I haven't tried using ads. They may be worth looking into since I know others have had success with this.

    I agree about turning podcasts into shareable videos. It's tough to share podcasts on social media, but videos are much easier. Anything you can do to make sure your message gets the most amount of exposure - and is easier for people to share and gain access to is a good idea.

    Thanks for putting this together :)

    Hi Nadav,

    I like the idea of going multi channel.

    This way, when channels open or close it will not affect your business much at all.

    Some folks get hyper attached to selling through a single channel, or maybe 2. I sell through Amazon, iTunes, Create Space, Audible, Selz, Teachable, SendOwl, Amazon Associates and of course, I offer services through various channels too.

    Definitely a sound Future-Proofing strategy. When 1 income channel dissolves, 3 more open.

    Thanks for sharing Nadav.

    Hi Nadav,

    Thanks for sharing these tips. Although I don't have an ecommerce biz, I can definitely use some of these tips for my business. I love Pinterest but I haven't tried their ads but I will be soon. :)

    Experiencing with augmented reality can definitely put a unique spin on things - that would really make us stand out from the crowd!

    Another great post Nadav!

    Great tips to help my ecommerce site, Nadav.

    I love Pinterest, but haven't yet tried their adverts. Obviously a mistake on my part as the demographic and statistics make it an exciting opportunity. I was also very surprised to read there is such a high average order value on Pinterest.

    Thanks for some really interesting tips.

    I totally love the tip about content marketing, mainly because I can relate to it the best.
    As a blogger, I often create content that is both helpful AND that promotes my writing and editing services. :)

    Although I don't have an e-commerce site, these tips are helpful for small business owners such as myself... even though I don't like Google Analytics! LOL ;)

    I'm doing all of these right now except for the augmented reality and can attest to the fact that they work well.

    If you're not selling on Amazon right now especially, you're making a huge mistake. We're on a bunch of marketplaces right now and combined they actually sell more than our website does, although as we continue to pump out more content our website sales are steadily growing as well.

    Taking advantage of these tips gives you a HUGE edge over competitors who aren't.

    Hi Nadav, I know Pinterest worked very well for me several years ago when I had a retail online store. People would purchase right from the pins.
    Keeping track of inventory became difficult with some drop shippers and delivery often took longer than the customers expected. I imagine that is more difficult today with Amazon and such.
    I'd love to get back into it someday, it can be fun to see orders coming in from your computer. It's how I got started in blogging and content marketing.

    Hey Nadav,

    It seems that people are more focused on the Pinterest ads these days. I have never tried any. I am sure, it will be good for the e-commerce owners.
