Good advice when starting up an online shop
Make sure that your shop is able to accept VISA payment. A shop that only accepts Paypal is not a good idea. Your shop should also be able to MasterCard.
Make sure your design is responsive - so that your shop also looks great on iPads and smartphones. More and more sales are done on these devices.
It is important that you choose the right shop system early in the process. We use redSHOP , which we think suits the needs of most of our customers, because it is a system that works great for both complex shops, but also small niche shops . There are many shop systems, with different advantages and disadvantages. However, it is really annoying and time consuming to first choose a system and then move to another system far in the process .
Remember to think about search engine optimization in the beginning of the process. SEO is the best way to get free traffic on your site. It is an advantage that structure and SEO is in your mindset from the beginning.
Remember to collect email addresses - newsletters is you bread and butter in down periods. Also, it helps to give loyal customers.
Keep your shop understandable and simple. Make sure your shipping rates are understandable and reasonable. It is also important that your delivery are understandable and that you keep your promises.
You should have a phone number on the site - this provides security and credibility. Have focus on your reputation. A bad reputation can ruin your business, so it is important that you follow up on your reputation on the web.
