There was a time when flea markets and bazaars were the only way you could reach out to your customers. And you as a store owner, know how tough that can be when you want to reach out to your customers all across India, in a better and faster way.
But thankfully with the steady rise of eCommerce in India, things are changing for the better. It has become easier to increase your brand’s visibility online by being on a global medium.
Telling you of one such success story. A very famous Indian brand, before they opened their online store, used to only sell through all possible online marketplaces – to get noticed and build their brand visibility. And this generated a lot of buzz around their brand and they promoted it well using some one else’s e-commerce site. And just during that, they went ahead and opened their own online store. The first time a customer purchased their product from the marketplace, but the next time they purchased it directly from their online store, since now they knew about the brand well!
So you see, you have got e-commerce to work amazingly for your brand by opening an online store. But how do you keep attracting new customers to your store everyday?
Apart from selling through your own website, you need to be visible at a lot of other places too. Selling your products on online marketplaces will help you achieve 2 very essential things as an entrepreneur:
1. It will increase your brand visibility and engagement.
2. And it will keep getting you new customers time and again.
So you can be sure that a repeat customer will definitely come to your online store the next time he wishes to purchase something.
