10 eCommerce tips that will make you at least 100k this BFCM

I shouldn't be giving away this for free...

Email subscribers spend 138% more on average than non-subscribers.

So, the most powerful tactic to prioritize now is building your audience.

A bigger list means more revenue over the holiday period.
So make sure you have your embedded sign up forms on the footer or header of your store as well as your checkout opt-in in place to passively collect email subscribers

Effortlessly make $100,000 by the end of the year Pairing TikTok + Email Marketing

Ignore this thread at your own risk

🧵 Image
IMO there’s never been an easier time to get rich off of TikTok

Why?

Cause Tik Tok has 1 billion daily users across 155 countries

And yet not many advertisers…

There’s a lot of demand and not that much supply

Which makes it cheap
It reminds me a little bit of the good old times of Facebook, in 2018 when you used to sell ice to Eskimos and they bought it

Here's how it works:

// Thread // 🧵
First, you have the problem.

Ideally, a huge problem that is constantly eating away your reader

As that specific problem is something they care about or struggle with, when you mention it, it hooks your prospect in.
Once you have them hooked

Then you agitate the problem

You talk about all the negative things that come with having this specific problem:

Make them feel emotional
Provoke strong negative emotions
Make the problem seem scarier

Thread //
When approx 90% of your customers will be one-time buyers, having a win-back strategy to lower that stat is a must.

Just imagine what would happen if 20% of your customers buy from you not only once but twice?
Let’s run the numbers:

If you have 10,000 current customers

And 2000 buy from you a second time at a $50 AOV.

You would be making an extra $100,000

Without spending a single penny on ads...

As an email marketing agency owner, I audit Klaviyo accounts every day

One of the most common mistakes I see throughout the accounts that are not attributing 30% to 40% of their rev to email is:
