You know how to reach success as an online store owner because you’ve been told a million times: It’s all about the links you build via search engine optimisation.

Yet, you see no improvement in organic traffic, despite the fact that you have spent time and money in building lots of links. In fact, you’ve been seeing instances of traffic drops in the last few months.

eCommerce Hosting Company

Whether you are just getting started, or you are already running a successful online store, choosing a reliable, fast and supportive ecommerce hosting company is an important part of your business.

Here at Supercell Media, we run multiple online stores and it had been some time since we had reviewed the hosting options on the market. This was all sparked for 2 reasons:

  1. We recently became owners in a new online store business which had a poor site speed for an online store.
  2. I had attended a session on hosting and site speed at the Magento Live, Magento’s signature event.

How do you get shoppers to buy what you sell?

It’s possible that even if you feel your online store is doing well, sales may indicate otherwise. A little promotion can help to make sure you’re working smarter (not harder) to boost your bottom line. The aim is to get shoppers engaged and ultimately buy from your site.

Coupon Codes is a marketing tactic loved by some online store owners and hated by others. We believe it comes down to how effectively you can use them. They can either increase your sales and engage your customers or they can drive them away.

SEO for blogs

There’s a lot of hype out there about blogging but many business owners are sitting there stumped because their blog seems to not attract any traffic or interest…. so why do others make such a fuss?

These days, just having a blog for your business isn’t good enough. Just posting content on your blog and hoping people will come to you isn’t going to cut it. Why, because people can’t find your content online!

A blog isn’t something magical that tells search engines like Google to fall in love with your site and send you traffic. It only provides you with a platform to publish new content for Google to index. How your blog ranks in search results depends on…

Why Zappos is the KING of Online Retail

by on March 6, 2015

It has been on my bucket list to do the Zappos Tour for a long time now.

If your are in online retail and you do not know who Zappos is or why it made my bucket list, then you need to pay attention. Frankly I would be surprised if you don’t! They are the king in building a mega successful online retail empire.

Zappos.com is a billion dollar online shoe and clothing store currently based in Las Vegas and well known for being ‘different’ and going above and beyond the customers expectations.

So, finally while I was in Las Vegas for the PubCon Conference to speak at late last year, I managed to tick a visit to the legendary Zappos off my bucket list.

Booked the Zappos Tour in months before and was very excited to finally get to check them out.

It did take me a few tries to get here…The last couple of times I was in Vegas, the tour was either booked out or wasn’t available. It was off for quite some time when they were moving into their current downtown office.
