Social Marketing for GroovyCart online shops
Display products using our Facebook app
We have a Facebook App that can be added to Facebook Pages, this is an excellent way to display the products on your GroovyCart shop/s to your family and 'friends' and potential customers, ask your facebook friends to share your pages and spread the word.
Facebook pages are a great low cost method to attract new customers that may be interested in your products, if someone 'Likes' your Facebook page some of their friends will click through to find out more about that Page, so don't lose those potential customers add our Facebook App to directly market your products to those new leads. The more people clicking on links to your GroovyCart shop the better, keep Google happy!
Social networking links
All of our shops are supplied with multiple social share buttons that are added to the bottom of products or in the side bars of your shop, allowing your customers to tell their friends about the products on your shop at the click of a button.
There is no better way to advertise your products than to get your customers to recommend you to their friends, not only is it free, but it is the type of advertising that works best - we love it! We have made it as easy as possible for your customers to spread the word about your shop.
At the bottom of this page you can see the most popular social sites.
Adding Facebook Comments to your shop.
Comments on your products are a great way to gain trust from potential customers by making your shop feel more friendly and less corporate.
The Facebook comments box allows your customers and others who may be browsing your shop pages, to comment on your products, these comments will be visible to their Facebook 'friends' and therefore, potentially drive more traffic your way and hopefully urge them to shop with you.
Adding Facebook comments to your shop couldn't be easier, we have integrated this facility into your shop, you can turn this on and off from the 'Optional Settings' page. You don't have to have a Facebook account to use this facility but it will allow those who have, to share your products with their contacts.
Customers are more likely to buy from you if they have been recommended to you by a friend!
Comments are also very important to Google and other search engines. When search engines see that someone has commented on your product it shows the search engines that the page is being interacted with and this will give it a boost in their rankings. Also any comments that are left will be counted in your favour when they are looking for keywords.
Post Twitter messages
Twitter is a great way to advertise your products. Whenever you add new products to your shop we will provide you with a text box to quickly post notification of this onto your Twitter account. You can use our standard message or edit it, but it is best to keep the url as is. There is a 'Post on Twitter' page that allows you to see what others are saying and add comments of your own.
Twitter is a great marketing tool and a great way to keep your customers up to date with new products and promotions. We have taken the chore out of doing this and made it as simple as possible for you. One click Tweets your new product.
