There is no denying that e-commerce platforms have changed drastically over the last few years. And not only do they offer a better experience, but they also make it easier for the competition. So, if you want to stay ahead of the pack and increase online sales, take this advice from Chloe Thomas, an expert from eCommerce MasterPlan.
Launching an eCommerce business is very affordable. Even though you still need to deal with issues like storage and delivery, and properly automate your website, at least you don’t have to lease an actual store and hire people to run it. This being said, it is more than clear that running an eCommerce business is logistically easier than starting a traditional resale business. Still, this doesn’t mean it is easy. On the contrary, there are so many things you need to pay attention to and here are some of them.
Ok, so you have a trendy, new boutique shop. You’re beginning to get traction and exposure in your community, and your sales are growing. All your hard work, all those sleepless nights, the maxed-out credit cards … it’s finally starting to become worth it.
But now you have a new problem. Your current POS software is outdated. It takes forever to add new products. It only works on Windows (not your tablet or smartphone). And the reporting is atrocious. Well, I’ve got some good news for you.
I’m absolutely exhausted, but super excited at the same time!
I stayed up till 3am last night after making a discovery which I know will change the direction of my business. And guess what? Today I’m going to share my discovery with all of you!
Last night I found a product which will stop me having to spend hours researching new product suppliers, trying to figure out whether they are trustworthy, and worrying about using suppliers that would supply me products which wouldn’t sell well on eBay.
