On eMAG Marketplace you have a daily chance to reach millions of visitors who are looking for the right products and whom you can convert into customers.
But what can you do to increase the visibility of your products on the platform? One effective and handy option could be to promote your products through the tools available in the Marketplace. You can use promotion opportunities for new categories you include in your offer, as well as for bestsellers or products you want to increase sales for.
Here are the promotion methods available to you on eMAG Marketplace:
Promoting your products through our recurring campaigns on the platform can ensure visibility in a simple and effective way.
Our recommendation is to upload attractive offers for customers, which can bring you benefits such as increasing the number of visits to your product pages, but also the possibility to increase your sales and conversion rate.
Go to the Promotions-Campaigns menu in your eMAG Marketplace account to find out what campaigns are currently available and choose the right campaigns to load your products in.
In addition to joining platform campaigns, you can create your own promotional packages. These can help you attract customers’ attention and increase the average order value of your products.
Go to the Product promo menu in the Dashboard to start creating custom offers. Here are the types of packages you can use:
- Bundle first promo – a promotional package consisting of a main product and a secondary product; for both products you can offer a discount.
- Bundle promo – similar to Bundle first promo, this package consists of one main product and up to four secondary products; you can apply a discount for each of the products included in the bundle promo.
- Gift promo – for this bundle, consisting of one main product and up to four secondary products, you offer 100% discount (gift) only for secondary products.
- Promo pack – this is a promotional pack consisting of a set of two, three, four or even five identical The aim is to give the customer an advantage when buying several products of the same type.
The latest promotion tool we have launched, eMAG Ads, gives you flexibility in promoting the products you want, both in terms of budget and the type of campaigns you can create.
Here are some tips that can help you get started:
- You can test a campaign with a product that sells well in general- this way you learn how a campaign works and have the chance to maximise the impact of products that are in high demand.
- You can separate campaigns for each product category – this way you can better analyse results and compare the performance of products in the same category.
- You can start by investing small amounts but allocate enough budget to each campaign – our recommendation is to allocate a daily budget of at least 10 lei and start with a minimum bid to test which products perform better. If you don’t get any hits after a few days, you can consider increasing your investment gradually by 10-20%.
We remind you that we have started to test the display of the ads generated by eMAG Ads on the product listing pages , so you can register even more views for the promoted products. If you are tempted to try this method of promotion, we recommend that you start by watching this webinar on how eMAG Ads campaigns can help you.
