5 Ways Freelancers Can Help You Set Up and Scale on Walmart Marketplace
Follow the tips below to get a better idea of how freelance professionals can help you make more impactful improvements to your listings and boost growth during the holidays and beyond.
1. Produce High-Quality Product Images
Your product images are the first thing that customers interact with before making their decision to purchase.
Your images need to be clear, have excellent lighting, and show good composition, in order to increase your chances of gaining valuable market share. A freelance photographer who specializes in product photography can easily take your products and produce high-quality images that will help entice customers to buy.
Here’s a holiday tip: add images of special seasonal editions to offer the perfect gift for dear ones and help your product stand out.
2. Write Engaging Product Descriptions
Along with beautiful product images, every item for sale should also have engaging product descriptions that hook customers upon first reading. It’s important to remember that customers don’t want simple explanations when it comes to products; they would rather learn how a certain product will help transform their lives or meet their specific needs.
A skilled freelance writer with experience in product descriptions can fill that void and help boost sales by increasing your SEO standing, improving your Listing Quality Score, and helping your products stand out.
3. Bring Your Products to Life with Breathtaking Videos
With engaging photos and product descriptions in place, your next step is to create product videos and video ads to entice buyers to make a purchase.
If you offer a product that people use as a tool, creating a video that demonstrates how to use it in a variety of situations is also a huge benefit. At the same time, video ads on social media may help you gain exposure among new audiences. When you hire a freelance marketing professional or videographer on Fiverr, they can help you develop those assets.
Leverage Fiverr’s expansive catalog of videographers to bolster your products with breathtaking videos that are emblematic of your brand. For example, videographers can create an unboxing video to showcase your product as the perfect holiday gift.
4. Build Your E-Commerce Marketing Strategy
In addition to marketing videos, you need a holistic strategy that combines several e-commerce marketing tools.
From Walmart’s Sponsored Products and Search Brand Amplifier to ad analytics and engagement metrics, digital marketers are waiting to help you maximize your ad campaign ROI. You also need an omnichannel, social media marketing plan that correlates with your online presence. Altogether, these tasks may be daunting, but trained freelancers who specialize in e-commerce marketing can build a strategy for you and help you run it so you can focus on other important parts of your business.
5. Provide Superb Service with Proper Store Management and Optimization
Finally, your online business needs constant maintenance across a variety of arenas to provide good service, earn good reviews, and visibility among customers. Thankfully, Walmart Marketplace’s large ecosystem of tools and programs can make it easier for you to stay on track.
