Kirsten Howorth wanted to Sell More
Sales were not as per expectations and Kirsten was in no mood to wait and hope for the best. She worked hard and eagerly expecting great results.
How was your initial experience of selling glitzy clothing?,” Despite a healthy amount of traffic on the store, the conversion rate was not impressive. I was unable to figure out the cause for fewer sales and it was frustrating.” she told us with a sad tone.
What was your next step to turn visitors into customers?, “I decided to figure out the cause and religiously went through hundreds of articles online to figure out and fix the cause of low sales volume. It helped me narrow down that my products are sold on a single platform. I decided to place my products on multiple channels. It will expand my business and help me reach more customers.”
