WooCommerce – How to Improve Sales on Poor Selling Products

posted in: Guides | 0

Let’s face it! Sometimes it’s hard to sell some products and that’s a problem because the more time the products stay without getting sold, the fewer possibilities we have to sell them out. It gets even worse when we have hundreds of products with poor sales.

However in this article we want to show you four easy tips you can take into account to improve sales on those poor selling products by using WP Sheet Editor.

1- Install WP Sheet Editor

This WP plugin helps you manage your WooCommerce store in simple steps because it allows you to apply changes (literally) to thousands of products at once with just some clicks.

2- Open the Spreadsheet

Wp Sheet Editor shows you all your products and their information on its spreadsheet, which helps you locate your products in a simpler way than the normal WP editor.

It definitely helps you save lots of hours.

3- Find products with low sales

The first thing you need to do in order to improve sales on low-selling products is to identify which products have poor sales.

For this you only need to use the “Search” tool in WP Sheet Editor. You don’t have to go product by product in order to find the ones with poor sales because this tool helps you easily find them.

Just follow these simple steps:

a) Click the “Search” tool.

 

b) Check the “Enable advanced filters” to open the fields necessary to look for your low sales products.

  • Write “_total_sales” in “Field key”.
  • Choose the “less than” symbol in “Operator”.
  • Write 10 in the “Value” field to look for the products with less than 10 sales.

Now that you know which are the products with poor sales, you may want to apply a discount/reduce their price, append messages to their titles and descriptions, or feature them on the product catalog.

One of the best options to get products sold is to apply a discount on those products. For example you may want to reduce their price by 30%. For this, you need to do this:

a) Open the “Apply changes in bulk” tool.

 

b) Set these values to reduce the products’ price by 30%

  • Check the “I understand it will update the posts from my search” checkbox.
  • Select “Regular price” in the field you want to edit.
  • Select “Decrease by a percentage” in the type of edit you’ll apply.
  • Write the percentage number to reduce (30 for example).
  • Hit the “Execute now button”.

Another way option to improve sales in products with low sales is to append a message to their titles. For example you may add a message like ” – On Sale”. So if you want to do this just follow this simple steps:

a) Open the “Apply changes in bulk” tool by clicking it in the above part of the spreadsheet.

b) Set these values to append a message to their title.

  • Check the “I understand it will update the posts from my search” checkbox.
  • Select “Title” in the field you want to edit.
  • Select “Append” in the type of edit you’ll apply.
  • Write the message you’ll append to the product title (” – On Sale!” for example).
  • Hit the “Execute now button”.
  • Done!

Besides applying discounts and adding a message to the product’s title, you can add a message to their descriptions. It’s really important not to lose any opportunity to promote your products so that they get sold.

Just do this:

a) Open the “Apply changes in bulk” tool by clicking it in the above part of the spreadsheet.

b) Set these values to append a message to their title.

  • Check the “I understand it will update the posts from my search” checkbox.
  • Select “Short description” in the field you want to edit.
  • Select “Append” in the type of edit you’ll apply.
  • Write the message you’ll append to the product title (“This product has a 30% discount!” for example).
  • Hit the “Execute now button”.
  • Done!

One last modification we want to suggest to you to improve your products sales is to feature them on the product catalog. You can do this by following these simple steps:

a) Open the “Apply changes in bulk” tool by clicking it in the above part of the spreadsheet.

b) Set these values to feature your products on the catalog.

  • Check the “I understand it will update the posts from my search” checkbox.
  • Select “is featured?” as the field you want to edit.
  • Select “Set value” in the type of edit you’ll apply.
  • Write “yes” in the “Replace the existing value with this value” field.
