Foraged provides the tools, features, and infrastructure that makes selling online easy and affordable. To increase sales to your Foraged shop, consider taking these simple steps:
1. Create a plan to market your shop
The Foraged team handles many of the technical marketing efforts needed to sell products online, but the best way to increase sales to your shop is to develop a marketing strategy for your own shop!
Share your products on social media
Whether you use Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin, Tiktok, Reddit, Pinterest, Snapchat, or any other social media application, posting your shop to the public can create a dramatic difference in shop views and sales. Social media algorithms can be tough to navigate, but most platforms reward a high volume of posts. The more you share your products, the more potential customers will see your products!
Additional tips we have are to use relevant hashtags for non-followers to discover your products and tag Foraged on all social media platforms so we can support your business and share your posts!
A good place to start is to tell your story, show how you pack orders, and engage with comments and messages. The more your audience gets to know you, the more likely they are to support your business!
Share your Foraged shop with your email lists
Don’t be shy - let your friends, family, and colleagues know that you have an awesome business and that you’re proud to be selling on Foraged!
Also, we recommend sending out a monthly newsletter to your network featuring products in your shop, or just letting people see behind-the-scenes of your operations.
Put the link to your shop in your email signature and social media profiles
Don’t make your customers search for your shop. By making it accessible in social media bios and email signatures, customers can find your shop quickly and easily.

3. Consider offering free shipping
The data doesn’t lie: people don’t like paying for shipping. Offering free shipping is a common tactic among sellers that is proven to work, and it’s an excellent way to attract new buyers and keep sales going swiftly and consistently. Not only does free shipping entice your buyers, but it is also extremely easy to setup on Foraged.
