The biggest challenge in today’s new era for selling online is to generate traffic to your eCommerce website. Due to constant updates in the browsers and their algorithm changes, it has been quite difficult for online stores to sustain themselves in this competitive market. In a recent survey, it is proved that around half of online shoppers now rely on marketplaces for their online purchases. So, now people prefer to buy from Amazon, eBay, Rakuten, Sears, etc. as they are able to view different products and brands all in one place.
Instead of waiting for your customers to reach out to you, it is of course a smart way to reach out to your customers by displaying and selling your products on different marketplaces. But managing all the marketplaces simultaneously is a big headache.
