Lookin’ Good for the Holidays: The Best Ways to Improve Your Listings

By November 8, 2018Blog

In this installment of Newegg’s holiday blog series, we will discuss valuable improvements sellers can make to their product listings and seller store as well as some best practices for establishing your brand on our Marketplace.  

Listings Search:

As a Newegg Seller, you don’t need to worry about site speed, site design, or the technical aspects of SEO. There are, however, some simple improvements sellers should implement to take their product listings to the next level of greatness. This priming of your listings starts by asking yourself, “Are my products easy to search?”
Key things sellers should focus on for optimization are product titles, keyword placement,  high-resolution images, and informative & descriptive bullet points. Once these best practices are in place, you will have a clean slate for accurately tracking the impact for all your upcoming holiday marketing promotions.
In this excellent example of proper content, we see clear and concise product listings and tagging which allows your customers to easily find their products within the Marketplace, your Seller Store, and on search engines.

Seller Store:

We have touched on this in past blogs, but because it’s such an important part of your business on Newegg.com, it’s worth going into detail on how to optimize your seller store.
Because you worked so hard to perfect your products’ searchability with the tips above, it only makes sense to apply that same attention to detail in creating a store that properly showcases these products and your brand. By creating this destination for your customers, you are building brand loyalty and improving the odds that customers will increase their AOV with your products. The addition of professional look and feel content to your store such as eye-catching banners, videos, customer reviews, policies, and logos further aid buyer’s purchasing confidence and satisfaction.
Reach out to your account manager and learn how you (or us) can add these professional elements and enhance your seller store in time for the holiday rush.
