Starting an ecommerce business is more than hard work and demands many steps and decisions that need to come together at the right time. We took this article from Shopify and paraphrased it down for you to save you time. Here is the original.
FINDING PRODUCT TO SELL
The first step to building an ecommerce business is knowing what products you want to sell online, wholesale, or direct-to-consumer. Whether your drop-shipping or setting up your physical business online for the first time, we can help.
In less than 40-minutes, let us walk you through how to find product ideas, how to validate them, and how to sell the product once you have an idea you want to pursue.
Don’t start with your 5000 item inventory, start with 10-30 products and grow from there. Don’t be scared to contact your suppliers for product photos or get help from them to market their products online.
Setting up your business
BUILDING YOUR STORE
Don’t forget, if you run into any problems getting your store set up, you can always hire us to help with your online store.
CHOOSING YOUR SALES CHANNELS
One of the best ways to reach new customers is to choose sales channels where they already shop. The right mix of sales channels will depend on your products and your target customers, but there are a number of great options that can complement and support your self-hosted store.
I’d say the biggest issue with all of that, is an e-commerce site is hands on, and you don’t have time to waste micro-managing it. Hire us and we’ll grow it for you, so you can be hands off growing the entire business.
