It’s that time of the year again where online sellers of various sizes have the opportunity to be a part of one of the biggest sales events of the year. Just by putting your products on sale and hoping for the best will not give you the sales you want. You have to equip your store and design your customer experience in such a way that capitalizes on the potential traffic and buying intent that comes at this time of the year.
Here are some Buildabazaar apps to help you increase sales this Diwali :
1.FOMO : Social Proof In Real-Time
FOMO (formerly known as Notify) is a must have app if you want to maximize your selling potential. This apps shows off past customers who have bought from you and enjoyed your products to the new visitors who come to your store. FOMO accomplishes this by showcasing recent purchases in a little notification that pop-ups in the corner of your store.
FOMO allows notifications to appear in real-time or loop a handful of them again and again to create the impression of a buying frenzy. It also allows you to customize the look, placement, frequency and what produces get shown.
2.Privy: Pop-Ups Your Customers Can’t Ignore
Price: Starting at 0$/month
Hate pop-ups? That is because you see them everywhere and they are so effective. Privy lets you add pop-ups to your store, customize their look and set when and where they “pop-up”.
Privy has a specific pop-up which presents visitors who are about to leave your store without buying with some kind of offer in exchange for an email. With this pop-up even if a prospective customer isn’t ready to buy on the spot, you can continue to market to them through email.
3.Back In Stock: “Sold Out” Doesn’t Mean “Stop Selling”
Price: Starting at $19/month
Selling out is a good thing for your business but it is unfortunate for the customers who really wanted some of your products. This is where this app comes into play! You can let them opt into getting notified when you have more in stock.
All they have to do is fill a form next to the sold out tab and they will be notified when they revisit your store.
This app also lets you generate new leads for your email list and bring prospective customers back to your store.
4.Boost Sales: Upsell and Cross-Sell During Checkout
Price: Starting at $29/month
The best time to sell something to someone is when they have already got their credit card in hand. You can increase the value of each order by upselling and cross-selling by presenting customers with the option to buy complementary products or “upgrade” their order in some way. Boost sales lets you incorporate discounts into your upsell/cross-sell offers as well.
5.Hurrify: Show Customers That The Clock Is Ticking. (Literally)
Diwali season already does a great job of creating a sense of urgency for customers – the festival only happens once in a year after all. Putting n actual timer in front of the customer will give them the real feel of time running out.
Hurrify lets you count down the seconds to the end of your sale to convince customers who might put off purchasing for later that there might not be a “later”.
In case the timer ever runs out before the sale is done, it simply resets. This app is perfect for reinforcing the rush of Diwali shopping.
