WELCOME BACK! In the 3rd edition of our 20-part Shopify series on getting your first (of many) sales online, we examine the key points of consideration when beginning the process of building our your marketing plan to acquire your business’ first customers which break down into these 3 non-negotiable steps for consideration:
- Know your differentiators: why do you exist? why will people buy from you vs. the competition?
- Tell your customers who you are: A brand ethos must be developed. Consumers buy from brands that they connect with on a deeper level, it’s not enough to make cool products anymore. You must as well align your brand with the lifestyle of your target consumer.
- Have a core story you tell: This is your opportunity to make the personal connection with consumers that will lead to not only repeat customers but mini brand ambassadors.
Tune in next Tuesday for our next installation of the Shopify series: Infrastructure.
