Once you're successfully selling tyres online you can start to use the sales data to make future strategic decisions and forecasts. This is a vital next step to make sure that you're maximising your sales, stocking the right inventory, and able to keep track of trends to spot new opportunities.
If you have a good-quality tyre e-commerce solution in place, use it to its full potential and take advantage of its reporting tools to help you grow your business by boosting your online sales, optimising your marketing strategies, and improving customer experiences. You also need to make sure you set up all the relevant third-party tools to maximise the insight that you get – such as Google Analytics.
Here we're going to look at how to effectively use data and analytics to propel your tyre sales online.
Your website performance is at the epicentre of everything you do online. It's therefore vital to understand where your website is working and where you could make improvements. Analyse data such as click-through rates, bounce rates, time spent on pages, and conversion rates. Understanding how customers are interacting can help you identify areas for improvement.
Seasonal trends can come in varying forms. From predictable trends, such as the number of customers who may regularly change to winter tyres for the cold season, to random trends that appear throughout the year that you may not have previously identified. Getting any new insights into trends can help you across the whole operation. It can help you make sure you've got the right stock at the right time, create more impactful promotional campaigns, and react faster to customer needs to improve service delivery.
Base your plans on data-backed fact and set yourself up for success.
One size doesn't fit all. In terms of tyres or general requirements. Use the tools at your disposal to target the right people with the right messaging. Segment your customers based on past purchases, preferences, demographics, and interactions. Tailor marketing campaigns, promotions, and product recommendations for each type of customer to increase engagement and conversions.
Analyse sales data to identify the most popular tyre sizes, brands, and types that customers order. Adjust your inventory and pricing accordingly on a regular basis to meet demand and stay competitive.
Use the insights that you now have to run sales forecasts and look into expected trends/customer behaviour. Again, you can use this information to stock correctly and provide an always-available service. Then there is the benefit at a more strategic level. Are you looking to scale the business significantly? Are you looking to expand across additional sites? Forecasting can help you plan your next phase of business development.
Bring it all together with a new digital marketing strategy for selling tyres online. Use the data to understand what your customers want, and when. Your strategy could include paid media spend, such as Google Ads or social media ads, or you could focus on SEO and making the most of your local social media presence. Maximise your ROI on time and money spent by optimising what you do based on what you now know about customer behaviour in general and at different times of the year.
