Episode Info: eCommerce is booming in India and in the western countries like USA, Canada a lot of businesses have already gone online. In India, traders are signing up on Amazon & Flipkart to sell their products online. Many businesses are also setting up their own eCommerce shop to sell online. Selling online does not mean that you focus on getting more traffic to your website.

Use the rating schema on your product pages to show reviews. Apart from star rating reviews, collect video testimonials of customers using your products and put them up on relevant pages. 4.
