Intro to marketing - Why marketing matters

Marketing includes all the promotional strategies a company uses to attract potential customers to its product or services. With marketing, merchants have the opportunity to expand brand awareness and drive sales.

How marketing impacts businesses

On the surface, marketing seems to be about bringing in as many customers as possible to increase sales. But marketing is about so much more than clicking the “buy” button. For ecommerce brands, marketing is about creating lasting relationships with customers to maintain trust and grow revenue over time.

What is marketing for ecommerce?

Ecommerce marketing involves promotional tactics to drive traffic to an online store and lead visitors to become paying customers. It also involves retaining customers post-purchase. Many ecommerce brands use an omnichannel approach to reach customers at different touch points.

What is omnichannel marketing?

Omnichannel marketing is an integrated approach that uses many channels like social media, email, and SMS to reach a customer. Brands use omnichannel marketing to create a seamless user experience across all touchpoints. Providing a smooth omnichannel experience builds customer trust, reduces friction, and drives more sales for merchants.
