Key Questions to Answer for eCommerce Success

Summary: Doing well in the world of eCommerce can be difficult. Our free eBook contains 18 useful tips from industry experts to help your online business succeed.

It can be a struggle to succeed in the cutthroat world of eCommerce. With so much competition to contend with, most eCommerce businesses have to work even harder than their brick-and-mortar counterparts to stand out, attract leads, and close sales.

Key Questions to Answer for eCommerce Success

However, this challenge is not without its upsides. The eCommerce industry is competitive, in part, because it has plenty of opportunity and few barriers to entry. With a little expert help to ensure that the business is optimized for success, an eCommerce shop can become a very lucrative enterprise.

Using eCommerce Categorization to Drive Sales

One of the key things that contributes to the success of eCommerce ventures is good product categorization. Visitors to your site need clear product categories and subcategories to help guide them to the products they want to buy.

For example, if you sell clothing on your eCommerce website, it helps to separate your products into:

  • A men’s section
  • A women’s section
  • A children’s section

These are your starting categories. Each section must then be subdivided into smaller subcategories for further clarity. The women’s section might feature subcategories for:

  • Tops
  • Pants
  • Dresses
  • Skirts
  • Blouses
  • Jackets
  • Sweaters
  • Shorts
  • Activewear

This type of detailed labelling is important for both customer convenience and maximizing selling opportunities.

It is easy to see why a customer would appreciate having an organized, informative product layout that lets them quickly find exactly what they want. This provides them with a better experience that might influence their final decision to buy.

In addition, sorting listings this way also allows businesses to present would-be customers with a wide selection of product listings as they browse. This increases the likelihood of them finding at least one product that meets their needs. They may even purchase multiple similar items, winning you extra sales and revenue.
