Sales Analytics App

One of the main drivers of increasing your revenues in the Christmas season is deep knowledge about your customers, products and orders.

Among the most interesting questions are:

  • Which of your products are the best-selling ones this December?
  • How much revenue does a specific product bring?
  • What is the average revenue per order?
  • How many of your customers placed orders repeatedly?

The free Sales Analytics App by ePages lets you find out exactly that – and much more! The app provides you with insights on your customers and their behaviour as well as the performance of your products.

The possibilities for using this data to your benefit is huge. Here are some ideas:

  • When you find out which of your products are ordered the most, you can promote them on your shop’s home page.
  • You can directly target the customers who spent the most money in your shop with an email marketing campaign and reward them with a special coupon.
  • You can use the analytics data to boost your sales in next year’s Christmas period – for instance by offering the most popular products of 2017 for a reduced price on Black Friday 2018.
