For cross-border e-commerce sellers, traffic can be said to be equal to sales and profits, so traffic is what we must pay attention to. How can Shopee drive traffic in 2021 to get more traffic? Here are a few simple methods for reference.

1. Update in time
New products that have just been launched are ahead of similar products, and consumers will see your new products earlier, so they can choose to pick up new products during peak traffic periods.
Peak traffic period:
Taiwan Station and Singapore Station: 20:00–00:00
Malay Station: 14:00–16:00
Indonesia Station: 10:00–12:00; the number of orders placed after 21:00 starts to decrease;
Philippine station: the order time is relatively scattered, and it can be online all day;
Vietnam Station: There are more orders in the morning.

2. Manually put items on top
Click on the upper left corner of the Shopee official website to enter the [Seller Center], and click [My Products] to enter the product page. On the [My Products] product page, click [live] to view products sold online. Click [Boost Now] in [More operations] to set the product to the top, and it will automatically enter a 4-hour countdown after it is topped; [Within 4 hours] you can select 5 top products at the same time, and the product can be placed on the top of the corresponding category page position.
It should be noted that this method is used with caution for products with a flow basis, and is more suitable for new products.

3. Actively participate in platform activities
Every platform has activities. To be honest, activities are to fight for capital and seize resources.
There is a marketing center in the Shopee backend, where many themed activities are often published. Different activities are aimed at different categories. For example, in June, there will be promotions for maternal and child products or 3c digital products, all of which are launched by Shopee’s marketing department. Yes, they will tell the details of the activity to some sellers whose weight is okay and the category is also suitable.
It should be noted that novice sellers can participate in novice store activities. Sellers should seize this opportunity to achieve rapid drainage and increase their weight.
Some festivals in Southeast Asia are similar to those in China. The first half of the year is the low season for sales, and the second half is the peak season for sales.
Shopee will conduct online activities and offline promotion during the holiday season to achieve drainage outside the station.
For example, June is the holy month of Ramadan in Malaysia and Indonesia, which is as important as the Chinese New Year. Therefore, the platform will have a significant increase in traffic during this time period.

4. Fan marketing
Fan marketing is a personalized function of Shopee. Shopee is a social e-commerce company, similar to Weibo, where buyers and sellers can follow each other.

Buyer interaction circle fans: attach importance to every opportunity to communicate with buyers, reply to chat messages in time, and improve customer conversion and retention;
Fan discount: sellers can encourage buyers to like their products or follow the store, and give discounts or gifts as rewards for the next purchase.
