  • How Multi Location Online Stores Can Help Businesses Get Targeted Traffic

Want to build an online store that becomes the favourite shopping hub for your customers? Want to bring targeted traffic to your business to boost your conversion rate? Eager to build a brand presence that sets you apart from the competition?

Wonder if paid marketing is the only way to achieve this?

What if we say you can achieve the same results at a fraction of the cost of paid ads?


Simply by building a network of multi-location online stores for your business.

Want to understand how this works?

Let dive deeper!

How does multi store ecommerce set up work?

In a multi-store setup, a brand builds a chain of sub-stores to segregate its users based on:

  • Location
  • Language
  • Product Lines
  • Buying Habits
  • Any other custom criteria or the mix of the above

When you segment your buyers on any of the criteria, it becomes easier to offer them personalised products and buying journeys. While you can have a host of storefronts to cater to the unique needs of your customers, you can manage them all with a common central admin.

For location-based ecommerce stores, you can add products that are most in-demand in a given city, state or country. On top of it, you can incorporate value-added service to make your brand stand out. Combined together this set up of multi-location online stores becomes a winning formula and helps you get targeted traffic.

Let us see how this feature engages and converts your traffic into buyers.

Location-Based Online Stores: A Solution With Multiple Advantages

Some of the undeniable advantages of creating a chain of location-based storefronts are:

  • Offers a low cost and highly targeted means of advertising

  • Allows to understand customer preferences in a better way

  • Keeps customers loyal by offering tailor-made deals to reward them

  • Attracts lots of new customers to your multi-location online stores by word of mouth

  • Allows to give special hourly deals to make the best use of slack periods in a business

  • Improves your chances of becoming the local bestseller by offering quick service
