Marketing checklist

Dive into these marketing strategies that will get people traffic to your online store, and will help you succeed. Ideas in this guide are for every entrepreneur who is starting their e-commerce journey.

Social Media

Explore your social media options wisely. Use platforms that best showcase your products to reach your target customers.

  • Create pages for your business on social networks like Facebook, Instagram or TikTok
  • Spread the news about your store with friends
  • Don’t be shy using your personal page to drive traffic to your business
  • Set up and test a few ad campaigns on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook (if you’re a pro, check out Facebook Pixel)
Start with your site’s analytics. Who visits your site? Where do they come from? Do they buy anything? These indicators will point you to places worthy of your ad budget.
Ecwid’s App Market offers tools that help you organize posts and share your products across multiple networks. Learn more about posting on social media.


A good content strategy starts with the customer. Putting in the leg work ahead of time to find what your customers want will pay off in spades when you generate worthwhile content. Plan on giving more than you receive when you first start building your brand’s content portfolio.

  • Create meta tags for individual products to improve SEO.
  • Establish a presence in your field by answering questions on Quora.
  • Offer to write a post for a specialty blog as a guest contributor.
  • Start blogging about your products – this can also boost your SEO if you do it well.
  • Get involved with your local community! You may be able to generate press if there’s an overlap between a newsworthy event and your business.
  • Create videos – behind the scenes, lookbooks, testimonials, overviews, etc.
  • Promote individual products with reviews to build trust with your audience.
  • Build a database of user-generated content to use in future marketing efforts.


Emails are the most cost-effective way to reach your customers. Start building your customer base by getting to know your store’s visitors.

  • Collect subscribers with pop-up email capture forms.
  • Send emails regularly with info on new products, promotions, or sales.
  • Segment your subscribers (customers vs window shoppers) for better engagement.
Mass messages should always contain a reason to have your customer visit the store and never feel like spam. Review these tips and tools to make email campaigns a breeze.


Everyone loves a deal. Promotions, holiday sales, and new products are a great way to bring traffic to your store. Ecwid helps you provide special offers to increase your store’s sales.

Pay Per Click Advertising

Online marketing has taken over the internet. If you’re serious about driving traffic to your online store, you need to look into pay per click (PPC) advertising.

You’ll want to get started with Google AdWords. It’s easy to learn, easy to use, and will help you bring people you’ve never met to your store.
