3. How to earn money from your armchair

When your e-store is set up technically, you need to take care of your customer base. Only then will you have a chance to sell. But how to generate the customer traffic flow?

Start with creating unique game descriptions instead of copying them from other websites. This way, your e-store will be well ranked in the search engines and search results. You can also add game screenshots and YouTube game videos to the product card. Players love such things and they only urge them to buy a game.

Another thing is starting the fanpage of your store on Facebook. As we mentioned earlier, Shopify enables you to sell video games directly from Facebook. If you build a strong fan base here, you’ll get the opportunity to sell the products from your catalogue. That’s why you should invite your friends to like your fanpage and ask them for help in promoting the products. At the same time, publish unique and engaging posts about games to attract new players. Screenshots and videos are the most effective examples of content, but always remember to post quality content, which attracts your customers in the end.
