Supplement Sales are Spiking During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Supplement Sales are Spiking During the COVID-19 Pandemic: Is Your Website Ready to Support this Boom in Sales and Search Traffic?

Learn about E-A-T and why it is so important for supplements and natural products websites

Sales for supplement and natural products companies are up. In fact, they are way up. Online search traffic for supplements and natural products has never been higher. On the flipside there are also companies that are not seeing a surge in sales or website traffic.

And this underscores why it takes more than having a good product to thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic supplements sales spike. For both supplements companies who are seeing a surge in online sales and those who are lagging behind, your website and SEO must be working for you not against you.

When was the last time you updated your website? How frequently are you posting informative, high-quality blogs? Which keywords are driving traffic to your website? What is the search traffic for your niche and how is this translating to traffic and sales for you? Have you created landing pages that help consumers learn more about your products?

While the consumer interest in supplements is spiking, it’s important to remember that this is a very competitive market. As a supplements company owner, you need to do all you can stay ahead. You’ve got a proven product, you’re seeing a boom in sales, and now you need to keep the momentum going.

This is where your website, search engine optimization (SEO) strategy, content marketing, social media presence, and search traffic make such a huge difference for you, your consumers, and Google.

We get it – you want to drive traffic to your website and social accounts, and you want it to happen immediately. This is what paid traffic promises to do for you – clicks, clicks, and more clicks.

The lingering problem with these all these clicks and sudden boom in traffic is quality. Who is clicking these links? Are these clicks converting to new customers or regular website readers and social followers? What is motivating people to click your paid advertisements?
