When you have a product or service to sell, it can be sold on an ecommerce website! Online stores have made it quicker, easier and more profitable to sell your small business' product or service to an ever growing target market.
Many incorrectly assume that ecommerce only works with tangible, mailable products, but the truth is that, with the right setup and Shenandoah Websites' help, you can sell nearly anything online. In addition to the commonly expected physical items that can be shipped, services can be scheduled, paid for and followed up with online. Digital products, such as newsletter subscriptions, ebooks and high resolution photographs are also good candidates for an online sales presence.
There are several advantages to maintaining an ecommerce website. First, if you already have a website for your business(and you should), there will be little more recurring overhead involved with attaching an online sales channel to it. Second, an ecommerce site (usually) doesn't require dedicated staff to sit by it to keep it profitable. In addition to that, if the weather is bad outside, making travel difficult, online sales are unaffected and may even increase.
Once you have an ecommerce website, your target market increases exponentially!
1. Don't forget to consider the cost of packing and shipping tangible products 2. Follow-up with pleased and displeased clients 3. Build a list of clients! When you have a new product or service, you'll have an email list to announce it to. 4. Know your market. Don't bring a new product into your business solely to sell it online unless you have thoroughly researched it.
