Copy can often times be an afterthought for eCommerce store owners. This is because the focus is often put on how the site looks and functions. Your messaging is a huge factor in helping to increase conversions.
If you are struggling with planning your copy, or how to revamp your copy, start with a user journey map for your store to map out all of the touch points where you communicate with your visitors.
Questions to Consider When Reviewing Copy
As you work on this user journey map, consider the following questions:
Have I established a customer profile for my target customer?
Am I speaking to my target customer’s pain points?
Does my copy only focus on my business, or does it clearly explain what’s in it for the customer?
Have I clearly explained our store policies (free shipping, free returns, 24/7 support, etc.)?
Am I highlighting what makes my store different from my competitors & why customers should shop with me?
