eCommerce Marketing Strategies with American Outdoor Brands’ Jonathan Steffens – EP 96


eCommerce Marketing Strategies with American Outdoor Brands’ Jonathan Steffens

In Episode 96 of the Lion’s Share Marketing Podcast, Tyler and Jon discuss Facebook’s new tool for small to businesses and creators to conduct and host paid online events through Facebook. The Online Event tool is free for the first year. Facebook is launching this to aid SMBs during the pandemic since the majority of Facebook’s revenue comes from smaller brands. This could be a game-changer if Facebook executes it correctly. Jon and Tyler agree that when there’s a new feature available within a strong platform like Facebook, marketing leaders should test it and see how it works; it may turn out to be something incredibly profitable.

Next, Tyler introduces Jonathan Steffens, eCommerce Manager at American Outdoor Brands. Jonathan explains his role at American Outdoor Brands and the unique circumstances that come with housing eighteen different brands. Drawing on his experience in eCommerce, Jonathan explains his approach to attribution modeling, selling products that are challenging to advertise—such as firearm accessories and tools—and managing multiple re-platforming projects at once. He also covers the current trends in eCommerce and the new opportunities for eCommerce marketing leaders during the COVID-19 pandemic. Ultimately, Jonathan advises marketing leaders to constantly be innovating while focusing on one process, technique, or method at a time.

Join Tyler, Jon, and Jonathan for more information on effective eCommerce management and marketing challenging products.
