You are probably here because you have an online store or you are about to get started with one. In this post, we will go over three key tips for eCommerce Success.
You’re in the right place. It is not news that the business world is going digital and online. The internet, computers, smartphones, and the global pandemic have changed the way people do business.
The tips we have listed here are some of the most important ones you need to adhere to if you want to set up your online store for success.
Believe in the Product or Service you’re selling
This might come to you as a shock but a lot of stores do not use the products they are selling and neither are they essentially passionate about the product or services they are trying to sell. This disconnect from the product will affect your delivery to market to the prospective customer to use such a product or service.
It will be an embarrassment if a prospective client asks you to walk him through how to use or set up a product and you have to call support right in the presence of your client because you have no clue how to use the product.
If you don’t want to embarrass yourself, you shouldn’t just choose products because of the profit margin but choose products that you understand and can tell people about.
Make Sure There is a Market for your Product.
Imagine trying to sell beach sand at the beach. Exactly, it is laughable because it is in excess. There is no demand for beach sand at the beach. However, selling water in the desert is a lucrative business because there is an amazingly high demand for such in the desert.
Customers and sales grow businesses and their absence means extinction for businesses. Your stock will get dilapidated without customers. This is why they say “Customer is King”. So before you go into that online business, you could create a YouTube video or Instagram post and ask your followers and viewers if they are interested in getting “This new thing” you have and see what the feedback you get is.
When quite a sizeable number of people give you positive feedback indicating that they want “that new thing” then you can start such a business because you have the demand for it. That is called market testing
When you have a product and you have a demand for the product you should make sure that you have distribution for that product. This is the art of putting your product in the faces of people. Getting the word out about your product. The fastest way to do this is to get your product to people who already sell to your target audience and build some sort of work together.
