We live in exciting times. You can get your hands on basically any product in the world with the new advancements in technology taking place in eCommerce, running your own online store has never been easier and the potential reach for your products can be enormous.
Why should I start an online store?
We are not saying you should close your doors and only focus on selling online. eCommerce is an excellent add-on if you have an existing brick and mortar shop or looking to sell products online as a hobby. Apart from the broader client base, your products are available 24/7 and shopping from your couch is way more convenient. If you are starting out you don’t have to worry about signing a lease for rental space.
But won’t an online shop prevent people from seeing and feeling my products?
We are sure you have enough confidence in your products to offer a free return policy. With good descriptions and imagery, they should have a good idea what they’ll get. This will give them peace of mind and they will still feel in control. Testimonials do the world of good to build trust with new customers. Remember to show your appreciation for great reviews and also to respond in a professional manner to any bad reviews, and do your best to solve the problem as quick as possible.
