Strategies to maximize retailer sales
A report by Gminsights claims that the pet care market has witnessed a growth rate of 6.8% from last year (2020). Living with a pandemic, apart from few shipping and delivery restrictions, the pet industry continues to prosper. World Animal day 2021 might be a good chance for e-tailers to jump in for new trends and market dynamism.
Below are few sales strategies to help sellers understand the animal market better:
Sell on ‘awareness’ grounds
To target your audiences’ ‘soft spots’, selling on ‘moral grounds’ might not be a bad idea (especially for a good cause!).
Few reports on shark and minke whale killing are of the many unreported ones! Retailers can use such facts and figures to attract shoppers. For instance, more than 8 million dogs are killed for meat, every year, in China. Online stores that list products like dog food and their apparels might use such reports. This might attract more ‘woke’ shoppers and hence increase website traffic.
Sponsor charities, events and animal campaigns
Another valuable strategy can be usage of sponsorship programs. There are many charities and events that get organized on Animal day in October. Retailers can extend their ‘sponsorship support’ to such campaigns. In return, this technique might just increase brand promotion and awareness.
Use Google shopping and related tools
Retailers can use ‘Google shopping’ to sell their products online this World Animal day 2021!
The question is, why this selling platform? Let’s understand!
For instance, a new retailer wants to start their animal online business on this day. Google trends will locate both global and local trending pet items. Google merchant center will help with ‘seller’s online shopping setup’.
However, a retailer already selling on a different platform, can opt Google shopping too. Free listing allows ‘free display’ of products on it (No-commission-charge policy).
