5 Important e-commerce Business Tips you MUST Never Forget!

There are a plethora of methods for scaling and growing a business…. Truth be told, there is no perfect way to go about this process. However, there are some key principles that you should adhere to regardless of the kind of method you’ve chosen to grow your business. What are these principles for e-commerce bloom?

Let’s find out!

Reasoning like the customer: the advice often given to entrepreneurs is “think like the customer,” aside from this sounding cliché, most people don’t know how to go about it. When attempting to reason like the customer, you have to be on the same mental plane; the mantra of “less of me, more of you” is apt in this context. What this simply means is that what you think is good/right should not count; rather, what the customer thinks is good/right counts. If you apply this pattern to key areas of your business, it won’t take long before you start noticing positive changes in the area of sales. For example, regarding the product you want to sell, think of what is in vogue, what customers are demanding right now and pitch your tent there. Providing for specific customer needs will not only improve your business, but it will also prevent the dreadful menace of unfulfilled orders.

Learning by Doing: We have talked about how entrepreneurs get trapped in thinking and learning phase without actually getting anything done. What you should remember is that failure is simply an opportunity to learn and improve as an individual and a business. So, always see failure as an ally in your journey to perfection. Go out there fail, fail, learn and then WIN BIG!

Selling Different: Selling in a unique way separates you from the pack and gives your business an identity. Customers like to feel special, patronizing a unique brand is a cool thing and if you brand your business as something different, you will quickly amass loyal customers. Ensure that you not only provide for your customer’s needs, but you also cater to that basic human instinct of wanting to be different. Don’t copy the competition too much, stand out of the crowd with unique selling techniques and incentives.

Get the Right Product: In the e-commerce world, the consequences of selling bad products are failure and loss. Because of this, it is in your best interest to devote the time and energy into finding the best products to sell. Having recognized the importance of this, we have created courses dealing with this subject extensively. You can have a look here.

It is worth remembering that there is no business without products.

Stay Current: In a digital world where new technologies keep popping up here and there, a lazy entrepreneur who fails to stay up dated with the current happenings and trends is only digging his own grave. Don’t be the lazy entrepreneur, be a WINNER!

By keeping these tips at the heart of your business and implementing them, you are sure of scaling successfully and opening the doors for further growth and expansion.

Professional for sure! Get LLC State Registration to protect yourself legally. Important: To Sell In USA you don’t have to live there or have USA company/Bank acc! Plus you get all the features of PPC, Lightning deals etc.
Cons? Small monthly amazon fee.

Shopify Is Easier to Use, it's a turn-key solution. (hosting, ssl etc all included) + great app store to boost your sales.
WooCommerce is free opensource plugin and working with Wordpress which means you have to install and confirgure everything yourself, buy hosting, ssl separately too so there is no real saving just more headaches.
Go for shopify and jump straight into selling rather than micromanagement tech parts with WooCommerce..

WooCommerce looks like saving but in reality you have tons of hidden costs like domain, ssl and tons of extra hassles... Why not go easy with Shopify!

Agreed. dont pay $150 to some shady guys. you should do it yourself and become your own expert. 1/2 the people that claim to know don't. You know your product better than anyone else. Dont be lazy! USe the tools provided and dont look for magic pills!

Hi, Claudia and Friends...
Just brainstorming a bit! Is it possible to monetize a Shopify store solely or in part by customer's purchases?
