Beginners guide on how to start an online Store
Sell your products and build your brand in one great place…your own online store!
Starting an Online Store is easy, but it can become messy if you are following the wrong guide. There are hundreds of options available today depending on purpose, niche and personal preferences. So, here in this article, I will try to make it as easy for you as possible and select the best options for your requirements. Are you confused? Let’s look at some details…
Name and Logo
Creating an online shop requires you to craft a visual identity for your brand. You need a memorable logo that reflects your brand’s personality. Check out our Logo Designing Services.
Domain and Hosting
After you have finalized the name, it’s time to make it official. You need a matching domain name and a web space. You can easily get that from vendors like bigrock, namecheap, etc. Check this guide to know more.
Pick the Right Platform
Though we always recommend custom built websites, a WordPress + WooCommerce website is a great option to start with a small store. WordPress provides a very easy to use and user friendly dashboard to manage your products easily.
Next, you need to decide and list down the products you want to sell on your website. Today, you can practically sell anything on internet. From vegetables to large size electronics, anything!
Next, you need to write high quality and rich content for your products. Attractive and catchy titles with description of product features, size, color, and anything else that you can manage. Our Content Writing Services can help you with that.
Next, you need a talented photographer who can take photos of what you plan on selling. Plus you need someone who can enhance your images to bring out the best in your products. You must always remain true to the actual product while also fixing things like lighting and coloring.
You need to add at least one payment option for people to be able to pay you. Cash on delivery always works, but if you need them to pay you instantly, add a payment gateway. PayPal is universal, while there are many available depending on your location.
Spread the Word
Now, with everything done and ready, all you need is to spread the work and get traffic to your website. Our SEO and SMO services can help you with that.
The longer you wait to take action, the more you fall behind.
