Keep them up to date, and keep them relevant.
If you follow these two simple maxims then you’ll be headed in the right direction in no time at all.
Offers. Offers. Offers.
Everyone loves a bargain, and the online shopper is no different.
When it comes to catching their eye make sure to have a couple of big hitting offers highly visible on your site.
You could have special offers for Xmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day, the list is endless.
Keep them up to date and add a little bit of seasonal artwork on an accompanying banner.
Then you can avoid being the digital equivalent of those high street stores that have closing down sales all year round that after a while shoppers simply ignore!
Spend the time creating offers that will entice your customers and they’ll spend their time and money exactly how you want them to.
