The Building Blocks: Tips to become a Bestseller
For The Bazaar, from The Bazaar
Create good, no, great works.
We are not just a normal bazaar, we're a marketplace for tastemakers looking for creative objects. Naturally, the easiest way to get their attention will be to raise the benchmark.
Use Social Media
Constantly sharing your products with your contacts on Facebook and Twitter can help raise awareness of your store. Depending on your product, Stumbleupon also can drive you tons of free exposure.
Read our blog
We constantly build and integrate new features to help you promote your products better. To make sure you don't miss any of them, follow our blog here.
Have a blog. Talk about your new work. Brag.
Create a following for your current buyers so they are informed when you have new products.
Experiment with prices
It's hard to know what buyers are willing to pay, so set limits on your quantity and provide variety so you can set different prices and observe what sells best.
Upload many images for every product
Give ideas to buyers how your product will suit them or their environments. By giving them ideas, you are creating reasons for them to buy.
Take good pictures.
A good picture says a thousand words. Make sure the lighting is adequate and composition is balanced. Sharp images also let buyers have a clear idea of what they'd be getting, and thus help them make decisions faster.
Talk to a magazine
If you want to have a rockstar store, you have to market it like one. Advertise on blogs. Talk to journalists. Give it a Facebook page.
Only sell what you can make.
Build a reputation for yourself by only selling what you can produce. Over-demand can stall fulfillment and delivery, leading to frustrated buyers.
Deliver on time.
At The Bazaar, we give you up to 14 days to ship to buyers. But, imagine the smile on their faces if they get it earlier. It's priceless.
Wrap your item well.
You never know what your item goes through during shipping. So make sure your item is wrapped properly, so buyers receive them in good shape. Trust us, it's going to earn you some brownie points.
Put your BZA.CO url on your business card.
Promote your store every opportunity you have. With our uber-cool, ultra-short website address, you don't even need a URL shortener.
Invite buyers to leave you ratings and reviews
High ratings give you credibility towards buyers, and earn you exposure on the main page. Don't be shy, leave a note and invite your buyers to review you and your products when they have received it.
Include your store website address within your email signature
Every email sent is an opportunity. He or she may be interested. In your products, we meant.
Be thorough in your product description. What it is, or not.
Letting buyers know everything they should is important to avoid unnecessary disputes.
Create a newsletter
Newsletters are affordable ways to keep your followers informed. Provide them other interesting information besides sales talk.
