3 Ways to Scale up SaaS SEO, Which Are Commercially Different With eCommerce SEO

SEO is not a strange term for most entrepreneurs and online marketers. Basically, it is a high ROI approach to capture customer search demand that can be converted into traffic and sales from different types of search engines.

Having said that SEO strategies can differ hugely depending on the business model and products you are selling.

So in this article, I would share some points of view on how to scale up SaaS SEO that is born without thousands of product page advantages. By the end, you can learn the common and difference between eCommerce SEO and SaaS SEO, and master some methodologies to apply to your SaaS business.

Cannabidiol Products Grow Rapidly in China Market? CBD eCommerce & Marketing 101

CBD, which is short for Cannabidiol, is a popular compound that is extracted from the flowering tops, leaves, and resin of two strains of the cannabis plant: industrial hemp and marijuana. 

You might be aware that many cafes, restaurants provide a theme collection of food and drink menu or some global FMCG brand, such as Estee Lauder, Loreal, etc are selling skincare and cosmetic products with the CBD ingredient, and it’s quite popular with the consumers. One of the reasons they claim is that It’s an effective alternative treatment. There are hundreds of scientific research studies and reviews showing that CBD is indeed effective in addressing a wide array of conditions related to depression, anxiety, and pain. For example, CBD oil can fight pain, soothes depression, or helps with cancer pain relief.

Although CBD use also carries some risks. For example, it’s often well-tolerated, CBD can cause side effects, such as dry mouth, diarrhea, reduced appetite, drowsiness, and fatigue. CBD can also interact with other medications you’re taking, such as blood thinners. However, In China, CBD is not considered a banned narcotic by the Chinese government, unlike marijuana — the possession of which could result in serious criminal consequences. Curiously enough, cultivation of the hemp plant, from which CBD is derived is, in fact, legal in three Chinese provinces: Yunnan, Heilongjiang, and Jilin. It is cultivated under strict regulations. As alluded to above, this is because CBD does not intoxicate as does marijuana/THC. 

Unfortunately, CBD is still being prohibited by many mainstream advertising channels, no matter either global platforms such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, or in China such as Baidu, Wechat, etc. At most, hemp-related products are being allowed to list on the platforms to sell and run advertising campaigns. So it is quite a big challenge for marketers to rapidly and exponentially reach out to the right audience, build up a brand and drive sales for the business. 

Thus, in this article, I’ll walk you through what approaches we can adopt to drive traffic and sales from your CBD products, and build a CBD brand. By the end of this article, you can learn the common eCommerce & marketing methodologies in worldwide markets in the healthcare and pharmacy sector.

Which Is Better for Non-Japan Citizen Sellers? Rakuten Ichiba vs Amazon Japan

How to Centralise Managing Order Fulfillment, Inventory & Product Data for Multichannel

It might be okay if you manually list and change the product data, which includes the product, inventory, and shipment information on a single channel when you just started selling a few items online. However, your enjoyable days must go away along with your transaction volume going up on multiple online channels because if you are still handling by manual, you will get frustrated in the massive error of inconsistent product information across channels, heavily time-consuming to handle inventory in stock, or out of stock, and logistic for customer order delivery, order refund.

Also, manually managing those data connections is both cumbersome to maintain and dangerously prone to error, because requirements vary from each ad network or a retail marketplace, a web store destination. Once the data feed gets an error or very slow to respond, refresh and update on the destination, you could miss out on a huge chunk of sales and revenue. 

Thus, if you want your products to stand out on Amazon, Lazada, Rakuten, Google Shopping, Facebook, ShareASale affiliate network, and others, you’re going to need high quality customized product listing data, inventory data, and order fulfillment data feeds in an automatic format across channels. Today’s most successful sellers maintain a well-oiled machine of feed syndication and data harmonization — with strong pipes and paths that always send the correct data to each and every destination.
