1. Create an online store
Having an Instagram account to showcase your products or services is a good start. As a seller, you also need to create a seamless shopping experience so it’s easy for customers to shop and pay. Ideally, all of these activities should be happening on one platform. When you give customers a seamless shopping experience like this, you’ll create a strong word-of-mouth and it’ll boost your sales.

2. Boost your brand awareness
In a recent Nielsen survey, 60% of consumers prefer to buy a product because of a strong brand presence. Start from consistently sharing valuable contents relevant to your brand on social media such as Facebook, Instagram, or shoot an engaging TikTok video. Having regular updated posts will impact the way social media algorithm works, and this will favor your brand especially when you have high engaging content.
3. Bundle your products
According to Picodi, the top 3 most popular categories are Clothing, Food Delivery and Cosmetics/Beauty care. If you’re selling one/more of these categories, this is a big opportunity to upsell! Bundle products are one of the most effective ways to increase your sales (and upsell the ones less purchased too!) Grab this opportunity and offer a few curated bundles/packages. It is recommended that you at least have 2-3 products as a bundle with few variations to attract more customers.
4. Special discounts
Offering discounts is a MUST have during 12.12 as customers will usually find the most attractive price during this shopping festival. Get ready and prepare a list of curated discounted products you’ll be offering during the day, special discounts during specific times of the day/week, or even limited period discounts so customers can get ready to shop! Don’t forget to regularly update your social media with these sneak-peak promotions to maintain the hype during the shopping festival.
5. Always maintain quality and service
Whether you’re selling socks, accessories, or electronics, quality is one that customers
will always rave about. Prepare early and make sure to double check and quality control the products you are selling, especially when the products are manufactured externally.
Not only that, make sure that you have enough stock and always be transparent on how customers can reach out to you when they have questions on their orders.
