Easter has been and with ANZAC Day approaching, April has certainly been a month of public holidays. 

This month, we're focusing on selling online and exploring your options when launching new products, starting a blog for your store and automating your shipping processes:

Launching New Products

With 95% of new products failing in their first year, it's vital that your product launch is successful. You need to get and retain the attention of your target audience and demonstrate to them the benefits of purchasing and using your product. 

With all of the feasibility research behind you, it's time to write up your launch plan and get it online. We've made a list of 5 steps to help you have a successful launch, plus some great product launch ideas.

Starting a Blog for Your Online Shop

Blogs can provide your store with plenty of benefits, including:
  • increased traffic from search engines
  • building customer loyalty
  • demonstrating your industry knowledge and experience
  • educating and entertaining customers
  • encouraging regularly visits to your website
  • product promotion
  • keeping customers updated

We will walk through how to set up a blog within your website, how the blog area works within the CMS, the adding of a new blog article and deciding which topics you will write about.

How to Automate Your Shipping Processes

Automated shipping makes it quicker, easier and cheaper to send out your customers' orders. Some of the key benefits include: 
  • Lower costs - by removing some of the manual and repetitive tasks, you free up your time to focus on other things like manufacturing or marketing. 
  • Increased productivity and speed - orders get sent faster, freeing up your time to spend on other tasks.
  • Improved customer experiences - customers love receiving their orders faster and being updated on order progress.
  • Reduced errors - the fewer errors, the less time and money you need to spend on correcting them. 
  • Real time analytics - you can see your live shipping and inventory details at a glance.

In this handy guide, we'll explain what shipping automation is, why you should consider using it for your online business and how you can get started using it today.
