When have you not seamlessly checked out without thinking twice about the item's necessity? You get your favorite pair of jeans just with a click, a lovely new bracelet, or even a customized gift shipped directly delivered to your doorstep with a push of a few buttons and scrolls. Isn't the process super simple? It might seem so.
Sometimes, there's more to the story. So, in this blog, MarsDevs illustrates how you can develop an excellent eCommerce site and how we can help you in this journey.
Say you do not have any experience with any e-commerce store. How can you build one from scratch? Building an eCommerce site is a time-consuming and detailed process. When you look at any eCommerce site, you never think someone has to craft content and load every product individually.
Here is a list of all the steps that you need to take to get started and successfully build your eCommerce site:
Here is the most basic first step in learning how you can start an eCommerce business. You need to start with the necessary research. If you were starting a sushi restaurant and needed to look into different locations and themes, wouldn't you check the various sites and their possibilities first?
So when you plan on an eCommerce brand, investigate the area you're interested in or the ones that will affect you and make decisions concerning your business.
Here are some questions that will help you start:
Once you answer these questions, ideate on the business you would employ— now, are you going to offer single products, subscriptions, or packages?
The first step is pretty straightforward. You just need to come across a domain name that fits perfectly with your brand's identity. You can purchase a site in seconds from sites like GoDaddy to Google Domains
Who would build your site? You need to hire an excellent tech assistance if you want to launch your site in a relatively short period and with a professional approach:
Entrepreneurs often start working with a developer without completing their due diligence in terms of research and then realize that they need a great team to start. Experts can help you skip silly mistakes and make the process simpler. MarsDevs can develop and maintain your site while you focus on your business. Let us know about your requirements now.
When you launch a new business, it often feels overwhelming. It is because of the uncertainty and the "you never know" situation. Being a part of an online selling community, you will have access to various entrepreneurs and business owners who will be willing to offer their tips. These tricks can help you start as well.
We present to you the trick to the success of Roxanne King, the owner of the brand The Holistic Mama:
In 2011, King, a prolific healthy living blogger, created and refined her natural skincare products at home. It was a simple idea and wasn't significant until years later when she transitioned from just gifting out her homemade cleansers to selling them in the farmer's markets and online. This was how she started an e-commerce business.
"It was hardly a marketplace when I started. It was a page that I presented on my blog. I named the blog 'Store' and sold a few products once a month," King said. "I just added a button in the blog so the people could pay with PayPal only. I got that using PayPal's site and copy-pasted it onto my blog."
It was this simple. Now, the time has changed. Every other site is an eCommerce site. You need to invest more in the area and technology. You also need to make the navigation. But you can keep it simple when you start.
King credited her "accidental" blog two years before she opened her store. Her blog helped jumpstart her business, and she recommends other business people to try the same. While the journey is different, you can try various tricks that help successful people win big.
She already had so many followers for the blog that customers could already trust her when she offered a product, even for the first time.
So, sharing your business or brand across other media channels can be instrumental, especially when you're just starting your operation. These early marketing strategies are almost free. You can use these channels to drop hints and build excitement about upcoming launches and product reveals.
Unlike her expanded store sites, holistic Mama products are now popular at Whole Foods. You can also find some of her creations on Amazon as a third-party seller. As a small business owner, you might also have your own site, but do not forget to sell on Amazon. While some would look at them as a competitor, make sure you make them your partner for the journey.
