If you haven’t made your first sale inside the world’s biggest apps yet, we have a few tips to make your first sale. Whether you’re an online store veteran trying to get the hang of your Mini App or if you’ve just started selling online, these five surefire tips will help you get your first order!
1. Make your store more accessible with the Facebook CTA button
While using ChatGenie streamlines the whole ordering process, your customers may not even know how to use it. They may not even know it exists. However, once your customers discover just how easy it is to use, it’ll be even easier to make another order since they can store their information, view their cart history, and more. To let them shop on your online store in an instant, you can add your chatstore link to your Facebook CTA button so they can find it the moment they view your Facebook page. To do this, read this guide from Facebook or watch our special video for it. You can also seamlessly incorporate your online store link to your content posts.
2. Utilize ads strategically
After that, investing in Facebook ads or boosted posts is another hack to really get the word about your store out there - no matter the budget. Some of our biggest merchants swear by this tactic and have even earned close to a million pesos in a month with ChatGenie. The key to an effective ad strategy is giving each ad or sponsored post an actionable CTA or link to your ChatGenie Mini App online store.
