So you’re are thinking about getting your business online, but simply don’t know how you might do it as it can be a complete minefield online. Where do you look, who do you use, or even where do you start?
The simply thing is to break it down into what you need, first work out what you could afford to spend. Then decide on how many products you might sell, for example if you sold dog accessories, foods and similar items for pets, you could look at starting to sale dog beds and maybe after doing a stock take you may have 10 different beds for dogs with 5 different sizes making a total product list of 50 products. Then your next job would be to get some buyers online to purchase your beds for sale online, but if you have a great selection then this shouldn’t be a big problem.
You may also think of selling sweets online, maybe even make and bake your very own delicious little treats. If you already have a shop then selling online could be great to boost business, if you don’t then maybe use a room at home, or convert a garage into an store area that is hygienic and fresh to build your sweets business online.
