The Sales Approach Your eCommerce Store Is Probably Missing (Using social marketing to overcome the most common cause of eCommerce failure)
By Rudy DeFelice, CEO,

Over 20,000 ecommerce stores are opened every week in the U.S. Most of them will fail. And most of those will have one thing in common - they neglect to tap their best audience. It is not what they are selling, but who they are selling to, that matters most.

Finding your best audience

It has long been understood that social phenomena - fashion, a new band, a viral video - spread through social relationships. Malcolm Gladwell talked about "influencers" in the seminal book The Tipping Point. Influencers spot and adopt trends and through their adoption influence others in their social sphere to do the same. Geoffrey Moore articulated the spread of ideas through early adopters - those that are inclined to try new things early - in his masterpiece Crossing The Chasm. The common thread between these teachings is that ideas are cultivated by planting a few seeds in the right fields, and that only certain fields are receptive to those seeds. As those seeds sprout, they spread seeds more broadly. But you can't just scatter those to the wind - they rarely take.

So what does that mean for the 20,000 ecommerce stores that open each week? read full article
