While marketing strategies have many different goals, the ultimate goal that most are building up to is for conversions in the form of sales. With so many e-commerce businesses online it can be challenging to stand out, but having the right systems in place can increase your conversions significantly.

One of those systems needs to be a flawless checkout process. Abandoned carts are a huge loss of potential revenue for e-commerce businesses, and having a difficult or even just a too-long checkout process is enough to get users to jump ship.

When looking at why users are abandoning checkouts, there are two reasons that stand out as significant. The first is that 35{fdbd0ccb61e7238485356800e3ea86ca3bdaae791b81f5665d6d805cc534cc92} of users abandon a cart because they are asked to create a site account. The second is that 27{fdbd0ccb61e7238485356800e3ea86ca3bdaae791b81f5665d6d805cc534cc92} of users abandon a cart because they feel that the checkout process is too long or too complicated.

Easier digital wallet payment options can solve both of these problems. GooglePay, Apple Pay, and PayPal are all examples of payment options that are quick, easy, highly secure, and trusted by users.

These convenient and secure payment options are becoming the preferred method of payment for large percentages of customers. …

Amazon, after all, is an incredible entity in and of itself. There are more than 300 million active customer accounts and 90 million people in the US are Prime members. To impress you with even more figures, Amazon made almost 2 billion dollars mostly from ad sales in the first quarter of 2018.

And when it comes to these millions of customers, Amazon knows a lot. They have data on what device type we are using, our basket size, wishlists, search filters, the reviews we have left, and what products we have viewed and purchased. That is a lot of information that can be leveraged to market products to the right consumers.

They make good use of that information, placing ads in relevant search feeds and in front of the right users. They currently offer the following ad types:

  • Sponsored Products. These ads are broken down into different campaigns and ad groups. You can target keywords, using both multiple match types and negative keywords to ensure the most relevant placements. To qualify to run these ads, you need to be winning the Buy Box, and products with the most reviews will fare better.
  • Headline Search Ads. These ads work on

Blog content can be used to drive e-commerce sales by attracting customers and pushing them through a funnel; this works by capturing users who are searching for informational content instead of product information and bring this relevant traffic to your site through optimized content. The goal is to then push customers to product pages and encourage sales.

As your content gains new links from outside pages, this will also send relevant traffic back to your site, giving you more customers to nurture through the funnel.

To get the best results from your content marketing, Kevin recommends following several key tips:

  • Doing quality keyword research. To do this, he suggests using the GSC to find low-hanging fruit opportunities, and to use tools like SEMrush’s Keyword Research tool to reverse engineer top-ranking content. You can look for what types of content and queries your competition is ranking for, and use that to create your own competitive content.
  • Creating long-form content, which will typically beat out shorter content in the algorithms, as it offers more value. To track your results in the SERPs over time, you can use SEMrush’s Position Tracking tool.
  • Keep the featured snippet in mind, as it can
