How Can I Use Business Advisor To Improve My Online Store?
In terms of eCommerce revenue is defined using the formula below:
Revenue = Traffic x Price Per Buyer x Conversion Rate
That being said, in order to optimize your product performance, you also need to set your eyes on your traffic, price, and conversion rate.
The first thing you need to do is to set a target or goal for each of your focus points. To ensure maximum results, it would be best to think of one broad yearly goal and then break it down to monthly, weekly, and daily targets. Then you can brainstorm possible works of action that you can perform geared towards reaching your targets.
For instance, you can join campaigns or use sponsored products to increase your traffic. Perhaps, you can also utilize bundles or vouchers to make your product prices more attractive to customers or to up-sell or cross-sell other complimentary products. As far as conversion rate is concerned, you can also update your product listing to make it more clear what customers are receiving.
Once you’ve settled on a strategy, it is time to select which products you want to apply it to. In terms of traffic, you might want to focus on high revenue SKUs. Meanwhile, you can focus your vouchers and bundles on SKUs that aren’t as competitive. By doing so, you will be able to boost the overall performance of your Lazada sales channel.
