Akcelos' current priority is to diversify products and services and expand the offer to buyers. This summer, we had numerous requests from municipal, provincial and federal governments, who were asking when Akcelos would be diversifying the products and services available online. The demand for new products is already being felt!
We suggest that you make more products available on Akcelos. Site visitors will then see your merchant page more often. If you offer more products, you will attract new customers. To add a product, just follow the procedure described here. If you’re worried that one of your products or services cannot be displayed on Akcelos, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss it.
The number of English-speaking customers visiting our website is constantly increasing. We strongly suggest that you display your products in French andEnglish, otherwise you will miss some good opportunities to make yourself known. To do this, simply enter in the "Product page details" section an English name for your products, then translate the "Basic info on the product (fr)" and "Detailed description / specifications (fr)" sections of your product files. Finally, select "French" as a second display language to complete this small change that will let you easily reach more buyers!
You no longer need to change your personal website to add and edit product info! Your merchant and product data pages have unique links that you can post on your company's website. This way, you can invite your visitors to find out more about your products on Akcelos. Save time while stimulating users’ interest in your products!
All you have to do is put links to your merchant and product pages on Akcelos on your own website. Search the Web for information on the procedure if you do not know how to do this. For the link address, see the example circled in the screen capture below.
New products are added to Akcelos every day and you can make your files stand out with a few simple tweaks. Here are three things you can do to quickly raise your visibility and encourage visitors to learn more about you;
Log into your merchant area to modify your product file. Just click "Products" in the menu on the left and click the "Edit" button in one of your files. Then, in the "Pricing Details" area, you will see a box that prompts you to insert a link to inform visitors about your enterprise and the services or products you offer.
In this box you can insert a link to your online store or the "Our Services" or "Our Products" sections of your website. Visitors interested in your products will be able to learn more about you and you will benefit from increased traffic to your site.
One way to build a relationship of trust with your visitors is to add as many photos as possible to illustrate your products and services.
If it is difficult to represent your service with a photo, there are many royalty-free image banks online where you will find a professional quality photo that represents the service you offer. You can search these databases anytime to find images that fit with your product!
Feel free to include photos of your facilities and your proud team at work! Keep in mind that people enquiring about you through Akcelos usually know little about you.
To ensure uniform and optimal photo quality, photos should be at least 510x680 pixels. Your photos will display better if they are rectangular and panoramic. You can easily edit your existing photos with the default image processing software on your device.
Our visitors come to Akcelos because they know they will be both buying responsibly and supporting social economy enterprises. They want to encourage the emergence and development of enterprises that contribute significantly to their community and have a mission that corresponds to their values.
Show Akcelos visitors your expertise and achievements, your work integration enterprise’s prospects for advancement, or the impact of responsible sourcing on your environmental footprint!
See the screenshot above for an example of an achievement our merchant ADDERE has added to his service file.
These achievements are a source of pride for you and the guarantee of our reputation as the first online sales platform dedicated to the social economy!
