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.

a) in case of BIG products like umbrella, put 2 chairs and white sheets and take your photos, then remove background in photoshop
b) in case of small products use white BOX-setup like this http://imgur.com/a/VcRVM

I started private label selling 6 weeks ago and my conversion rate is 8.5%. Is that good or bad? I sell around 7 units per day

It's good. Your goal is to sell 10 units per day, $10 per unit profit. You are on the right track, keep pushing!

How accurate are sales estimates based on BSR?

It's pretty accurate but it's only a GUIDE, not exact amount. You need to understand that amazon does not release real sales amounts on public. So it's an EDUCATED GUESS. The problem is that all of that information is based on the sales rank at the time you are viewing the product. So if they ran some promo last week they have more BSR than usual.

That's why good to use TRACKING tools like "Track my product" in sells lik ehot cakes..

FBA toolkit, Unicorn smasher, Jungle scout, all give you some estimate. Nothing is "ACCURATE" and cant be accurate as you dont know real numbers, only amazon does... all tools just try to help you research. Dont worry about "accuracy".

Hai, I am obsessed with online business. I have bought some e-commerce affiliate software, that is completed with with Youtube video review for every product I added. The e-commerce is linking to social media. It covered three affiliate : Amazon, Ebay, and Ali express. Organic traffic is about 8,000 visitors in 3 months, but ZERO affiliate hit. No sales. Then yesterday I saw this system. Here claimed can get usd 45,000/month if we follow all the guide. My question, if we just started with Shopify, and we follow the guide, is it possible to get that number? By some posting I read, the contribution is more come from FBA instead of Shopify. Nice to meet you all here.

Glad to have you here. There are many shops on shopify that are doing much more than 45k, it's a pretty modest number but after couple of years you should be doing much more than that. just take your time to learn!

Videos provide two examples of searching niche. I need more. By the time I go to camel, and best finder, and video, back and forth, i get lost. I thought I found something, all looked good, until I went to aliexpress. Price was more than amazon! That was hours of research for a dead end. Maybe I'm not doing it right.

Aliexpress price does not have to be lower than amazon.. Aliexpress is only good for Shopify Dropshipping business.

If you plan AMAZON FBA business, then check prices on Alibaba, not on amazon! hope it helps!

Can't do FBA until business succeeds. The lower the price when buying, the better one can compete with anyone. I don't want to stock or ship, so I'll stick with the dropshipping model. I'll Keep searching I guess.The videos however are very good. Some company tried to sell me $3500 dollar CDN course on dropshipping. Was already doing what they are teaching. This is way better!

Thank you Leslie. Don't buy into overpriced courses. All the tools you need is right here. FBA model you can also start without big investments using the "alibaba wholesale" instead of whitelabelling... One of the videos cover it.
