Duplicate Content Is Hurting Your SEO Ranking; Here's How to Fix It.

Posted by EnableVue Staff on Jun 12, 2018 6:11:57 PM

 

There's no underestimating the power of content when it comes to driving your eCommerce sales. Just how important is it? New research behind content marketing reveals just how vital it is:

  • Increases Conversion Rates by Nearly Six Times. The average conversion rate for sites without a content strategy is 0.5%, while those with a content marketing plan convert at a rate of 2.9%
  • Costs Less. Content marketing costs 62% less than traditional forms of marketing.
  • Yields More. In fact, it'll generate around three times the leads that traditional marketing does.
  • Builds a Relationship With Your Audience. Over 70% of consumers would rather get to know a company based on their content than an ad.

Not surprisingly, three-quarters of eCommerce retailers boosted the content marketing budget in 2016, and yet only 30% of them have a consistent strategy for developing this content. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to extrapolate the big story here — content marketing matters, and many aren't doing it right.

Let's look at one of the most common ways eCommerce retailers are missing out when it comes to content.

INTRODUCTION:

You're likely already utilizing product descriptions to drive traffic to your site and turn window shoppers into buyers.

Most importantly, category descriptions inject themselves into the midway point of the conversion funnel; an on-point category description can move customers closer to a product page, while a poor one can increase bounce rates.

Is Your Data Dirty?

Don't look now, but your data may be dirty. And that dirty data could be costing your business thousands of dollars. You're not alone, though.

In fact, 20% of all street addresses and 18% of telephone numbers change in a given year, while anywhere from 25% to 33% of your email addresses will be outdated within the same period.

When your customers face a less than stellar browsing experience, the frustration they feel can lead them away from your brand or site and on to the nearest competitor.

Posted by EnableVue Staff on Jul 22, 2015 7:05:52 AM


Since social media’s inception naysayers have been ringing its death knell. The problem is – for every Luddite ready to call it done, there were a million more people waiting to sign-up, which meant their end-of-days prognostications never proved out.

However, now with the recent downturn in social media stocks (read the article), investors made leery by memories of the dot-com pop appear to be worried that social sites are headed for a redo of 15 years ago with a bubble big enough to take out heavy hitters like Facebook, Twitter, and even the ever shelf-stable, LinkedIn.

If your business sells products online, you likely--and rightly--see your website as a sales tool. However, it’s not as likely that you have a nuts-and-bolts understanding of the many overlapping systems that--when optimized--make your website as fine a sales tool as it can be.
