The world of e-commerce is an exciting, and potentially rewarding one.
Recently I decided to delve in, and went through the process of building an online store.
The result was a decent place for visitors to Be, Love, Create and Live. That is the theme, with products that promote a vibrant, balanced lifestyle; pertaining to the soul, the heart, the mind and the body.
My objective is to grow StoreFour to at least 20K Canadian dollars of net profit every month; ambitious yet achievable.
Here is something you can view and get from StoreFour right now:
So far, I’ve found that bringing interested customers to the storefront and convincing them to actually buy something is the real challenge of succeeding at e-commerce. Building the store, finding the right products, designing, putting and tweaking the processes, all of that was in my turf, and did enjoy it a lot.
That said, as I’m gaining more understanding of e-commerce marketing and sales secrets through learning and doing, I’m getting the hang of it, and gradually enjoying it as well 🙂
A key element of “customer conversion,” which refers to convincing a visitor to buy, is first to drive the right traffic to your website, then offer something that interests the visitors in terms of quality, usability, and price.
It takes consistent monitoring of analytics and learning how to spot the insights and apply their wisdom in action. It also requires getting busy with Search Engine Optimization (SEO), advertisement, and building a good customer list.
Will keep my readers posted on the progress and would appreciate your feedback on any aspect of this new venture…
Keep learning and growing!
