New Year, New You: Creating the Ideal About Us Page

December 27th, 2018 Comments off

When it comes to your online e-commerce business presence, creating your “About Us” page requires careful consideration and attention to detail. When customers visit your website they often want to learn more about your company such as who is behind it, how long has the company been in business, and what is the company’s mission statement. The following will help guide you to the creation of an optimum “About Us” page using this handy checklist.

Use a Modern and Fun Tone

The ‘About Us’ page doesn’t have to be dull and straight to the point. Get creative and have fun with this page by using a modern and fun tone that is inviting to your visitors. One example could be with the use of a conversational tone that makes the customer feel invited and valued. Be upbeat and enthusiastic in your writing and this will come across as a company that is both modern and fun!

Showcase Your Company Interest and Culture

Giving your readers specific detailed information about who you are, where your company got its start, and the essence behind you and your products/services helps customers better understand where your passion lies and why they should be giving their business to you. Does your company give a proceed of sales to charity? Be sure to include this because customers enjoy shopping for a good cause!

Give Attention to Perception

In continuing with the idea of giving your customers an inside look at who you are and what your company’s mission is, don’t forget to give attention to customer perception. You want to be sure that your tone and message doesn’t come off as vain. While showcasing all your company’s achievements seems relevant on this page, consider how to feature them without giving the impression that you are bragging in any way. Instead, the perception you want to give to your customers should be one that is friendly, caring, and attentive to their needs. One way this could be done effectively is by adding a few of your customer’s personal reviews of your products so that customers can see for themselves why they should shop with you.

Having a Happy Thanksgiving with Stamps.com

November 10th, 2017 Comments off

Autumn means changing leaves, putting away your summer gear, and getting your office ready for the busy holiday season. Even though the days will start getting shorter, you can still keep your home office running by using the powerful Stamps.com platform! Keep yourself well-supplied for a busy holiday season by visiting the Stamps.com Store, where  you can order free USPS supplies, and also purchase a cornucopia of packing supplies, shipping envelopes, and special handling labels.

Optimize your sales

The Thanksgiving season means food and charity drives, parades, football games, and family dinners. If you’re an e-commerce seller, it also means the peak shopping days of Black Friday (November 24) and Cyber Monday (November 27) are right around the corner. Cyber Monday is always the Monday after Thanksgiving, so you can ride the gravy train by offering coupon codes and online deals. So that you can offer your customers free tracking and keep them informed about the status of their packages, we recommend using the Stamps.com Shipping Label feature. Under our “Packages” section, you can select one of our “Shipping Label” options. You can easily print a trackable label on plain paper or on one of our self-adhesive labels, such as the 4 1/4″ x 6 3/4″ shipping labels.

Organize your data

Thanksgiving is a time for pie, and with Stamps.com’s Report Tool, you can create your own pie charts by clicking on “Summary” under the “Expenses” and “Prints” tabs.  You can analyze your postage spending habits by logging in to your Stamps.com software and looking for the Reports icon on the left side of your screen.

Thanksgiving NetStamps

Thanksgiving is a season for expressing gratitude. If you want to give thanks and show your appreciation to a friend, business contact or family member, we offer nine different Thanksgiving and fall-themed NetStamps designs. NetStamps are versatile and can be used for various denominations. They don’t carry a date, so you don’t need to use them on the day that you print them.
