6 Things To Consider Before You Start To Sell
Online
2
In the rush to sell online many small business
owners forget to consider various shopping cart
functions into their websites. If you run your
website on a platform of online store builders
such as BuildaBazaar, Shopify, and WooCommerce
then the process will be very simple as
installing the platform and some DIY steps get
your store ready in just a few minutes. But no
matter how you got your store, selling online is
not an easy nut to crack. Making a leap in
eCommerce is really important and to make your
business move in a correct direction. To ensure
your online success, make sure you consider the
following aspects.
3
How to correctly manage inventory
If you already own a physical store, then you
will be aware of the term called inventory
management. When to restock? How to predict what
your customers want to purchase in next 6
months? With the physical store if you create
your online store, how will you successfully meet
the two? With an online store, you need to
juggle your physical and digital inventory. Have
a clear plan to have a sync between the two. Use
spreadsheets or have an inventory management
software to manage your inventory.
4
Check For Technical Assistance
Either a custom solution or a store created by
online store builder, some or the other thing is
going to break as it is technology. This can be
as simple as a banner replacement to as major as
credit card security or security break down. No
one expects their site to be perfect.
5
Your Customer Service
If you own an online store then people expect you
to be responsive to their queries. They will
approach your store by all means such as
Facebook, Twitter, website contact form and will
not hesitate to write a complaint. Hire a team
to constantly monitor the social media and the
online reviews with quick and rapid responses to
the customer issues. Most customers prefer to
shop online, thus you have to be sure that you
lay the foundation in place to be a grand success
in the online market.
6
How to reinvest and grow
With the profits, you can reinvest in your
inventory, add more products, revamp your site or
spend in digital marketing. Disbursing profits
should only be done when you are able to purchase
and restock comfortably.
7
Check for a backup plan
As an online seller, you always need to have a
backup plan in case you are unable to fulfill
your orders or reply to your customers. Your
customers dont care that you have a fever or you
cannot get out of your bed. They dont care that
your system crashed or you have a slow internet
connection. At such times you need to have some
backup plan or some assistance to help you out
with. If you have a documented process then
someone can take over the priority tasks.

How will you drive traffic to your site
Having a website is not enough you would need a
people to get on your online store and make a
purchase. Optimizing your website for SEO can be
one of the biggest challenges of selling online.
Your website will roll around in the ocean of the
internet. How will your customers find your site
in the bucket full of thousands of shopping
sites? To drive traffic you will have to use
tools such as Google Analytics and get the power
of online search.
