In the last of the series of articles that we did on Competitive analysis before you begin your eCommerce development journey, let’s take a look at the research you need to do on your competitor’s social media profile, along with gauging their level of customer satisfaction which can be primarily found from website reviews. We shall also cover a few websites and organizational research tools which will be helpful for you to better understand your competitors and develop your custom eCommerce development plan.
Doing a Social Media Research on your Competitors
Social Media is a critical tool to reach potential and current customers. It’s quite essential that you have an active social media presence to engage with your customers. However, by doing a bit of analysis, you can deep dive into the social media strategy for your competitors and check their individual strategies so that you can improve your own and know the pulse out there. Here a few social media insights that you should be getting from your competitors to know them and the target audience better.
Checking on level of customer satisfaction of your competitors
Your competitor’s product and service reviews are the most important source for getting to know the customer feedback they receive, which is critical to the overall marketing strategy. You can check for website reviews, apart from other websites such as Yelp, BBB, and other social media websites. This would give you a better idea of the common customer issues faced with that set of products, and also the general feedback that your customers get-so that you can work on improving your own.
