Jump to [PART 1] of 6 High-converting marketing strategies for online sellers in 2017

But if all the chords are hit the right way, this practice can bolster your sales easily—and that, in a quick span. So look around for top influencers in your niche market (bloggers and social media personalities) and approach them from the front to promote your products to their audience. Some are going to review your products personally, while others will charge you for the ‘good words’. Also, you’re going to hear lots of “NO”. So stick to your plan and be persistent. If things go perfectly, few top names might agree to help you in pro quo.
