  • Why Krispy Kreme and Sausage Bacon Breakfast Burgers Matter More Than $2,500.00 – Pinnacle Cart's eCommerce Blog - Tips for online sales success
    pointer and Power Point deck at the family reunion I made an exception out of excitement for our client their success and the partnership with our SEO software company friends When I shared the story about our clients getting amazing software for free that will enable them to take their business to a completely new level there was NOTHING The silence was deafening Later in the day when I shared the picture of the Krispy Kreme Sausage Bacon Breakfast Burger on Facebook the lack of response to our client success announcement was so much more evident because of the intense noise created by this freakishly unhealthy food imagery There were probably 20 comments within an hour The responses ranged from Disgusting to I approve of this meal D My sister said she was falling asleep while she was posting in response to another comment my wife had just made Because of the spirited response triggered by this image I could not let this amazing object lesson and content go to waste Commenters literally couldn t stop talking about it As I watched this unfold I thought to myself the jig is up and the way we sell our products and services to people is forever changed This is noteworthy because of the aggressive sales tactics still deployed by huge brands when they should clearly know better People s heartstrings and their purse strings are wound irreversibly together and these are the interactions going forward that will allow us to reach our customers There is high shock value with this picture but it is a relatively harmless piece of content Interacting with it requires zero commitment In other words it fails to register with the public s BS detectors but is still incredibly emotive This transpired the week before I was set to attend the Hubspot Inbound 2012 conference in Boston I d already sensed the significance but the keynote by Gary Vaynerchuck spoke so specifically to these changes we see in marketing and selling that I couldn t avoid writing this even if I wanted to Gary highlighted the significance of the emotional impact of social media and how the game has been changed forever I couldn t agree more as I was listening to his words and I also couldn t get the image of this delicious breakfast confection out of my mind either The way we market and are marketed to has been irreversibly changed forever Next time you feel like reaching out to a customer to pitch them let them know you care and cater to their sentiments and your words will likely carry farther Happy soft selling everyone Jordan Foutz is the Director of Marketing for Pinnacle Cart and loves eCommerce the web and helping Pinnacle Cart merchants sell the lights out with Pinnacle s eCommerce hosting You can also follow Jordan on Google Back to the Pinnacle Cart Homepage By Craig Fox 2015 09 01T17 39 06 00 00 September 12th 2012 Managing Your Business

  • Web Traffic: Five Ways to Increase Visitors in 2015
    brand awareness it drives sales 3 Use Facebook intelligently Hopefully you have a Facebook account and you ve activated the free Facebook store that comes with every instance of PinnacleCart Also be sure to activate the social media tools that come with your cart to encourage sharing on all major social networks including Facebook But what do you do after that Well you start using Facebook intelligently Your goal is to use it to generate traffic and sales without coming off as too self promotional To do this you need to make sure every post you create has images and be sure to make them big Facebook posts with images get around 120 more engagement than posts with no images If possible make sure the image is self explanatory If you re using product images consider overlaying some text on the image to give it more context Looking for more likes You can get 42 more by offering coupons or discounts Encourage engagement by asking questions Make the questions short witty and intriguing and be sure to keep your readership in mind when generating them Another great idea is to share lifestyle or how to blog articles that are directly related to the product you sell The truth is Facebook fans are not there to learn about your product they go to your website for that Too many business just post products or sales on Facebook and while you should do this periodically your posts should also center on how your products create an enticing lifestyle or enhance an existing one 4 Offer Free Shipping sometimes Much of the reason consumers abandon carts during checkout is because of shipping Let s face it your visitors want to pay the price they see on the site not an additional delivery fee But again use free shipping intelligently For most businesses offering free shipping 365 days a year simply isn t a reality but offering it periodically will increase sales And offering free shipping for a designated period of time creates a sense of urgency which leads to more sales Of course be sure to promote this across all of your social media and advertising avenues 5 Create interesting titles and Meta descriptions for your products While much has been written about the relevance of Search Engine Optimization lately three indisputable facts remain Search engines drive visitors to your store They use the title and Meta description to create your listing Boring listings get less clicks Spice things up a bit especially with your Meta descriptions Keep your meta descriptions under 155 characters use action oriented language and when possible and think solution or benefit Another great idea is to ask a question with a short answer in your Meta description Whatever it takes to spice things up we encourage you do so We hope this list helps you get started on a fantastic start to your 2015 selling year As always our team is here to help and provide you advice
