WhitePaper Release: Why Should Your e-Commerce Site be Optimized?

The word optimization means many things to many developers. Lead generation websites optimize their websites to collect email addresses, while bloggers optimize their user experiences to get ad clicks or affiliate sales. Because every industry is different, it’s hard to discuss optimization in a way that’s useful. We want to change that. Our new whitepaper focuses exclusively on optimizations for e-commerce websites, so you can focus on improving your product pages and driving sales. Keep reading to learn more about it.

What Is It About?

There are four sections in this whitepaper that your marketing and development departments can use to further optimize your e-commerce website. Some sections have more to do with developing an optimization infrastructure, while others focus on the exact optimizations that your website needs.

Why Should Your E-Commerce Site Be Optimized?

This section creates a case for investing in optimization. Regardless of your business or industry, your website needs regular updates and improvements. Even the most established companies need to grow and adapt. Otherwise, your website will look and run like it was developed in the 20th century.

How Do You Know if Your E-Commerce Website Needs Optimization?

The next section discusses a few flags that warn marketers that their website isn’t performing as well as it should. It reviews common situations that many CopyPress and Earned Solutions customers have when clients come to us for SEO and website improvements.

Oftentimes, brands don’t start optimizing until they notice significant decreases in traffic and sales because they didn’t recognize the warning signs. This section reviews those warning signs.

What Common Optimizations Do You Need?

After reviewing the business case for e-commerce updates and discussing a few signs that your website might not be as optimized as you think it is, this whitepaper reviews common optimization best practices that you could use for your website. A few sections that are discussed within the content include:

  • Search engine optimization.
  • E-commerce content updates.
  • Technical SEO improvements.
  • Site usability and conversion optimization.

While one aspect of your website might be strong (like content or usability), another aspect like your technical SEO could hold you back and prevent growth.

How Can You Build Optimization Into Your Business Model?

The last section helps marketers and developers create a road map for building optimization into their brand strategies. Companies don’t need large optimization budgets and endless resources to improve their websites; they simply need goals and the drive to grow.
