First things first: How to start selling online

how to start selling online

So, you have a great new product. Yours is special. Yours is unique.

Your product can help many people: (check boxes below for all that apply):
be successful

feel beautiful
make more money
spend more time with their family and friends
work more efficiently
become a Guardian of the Milky Way Galaxy
other: fill in the blank  _______________

But sadly, you have a stack of boxes sitting in your ex-roommate’s bedroom. You’re relying on your BFFs to tell their BFFs about your widget; then drive over and sell them the inventory from the trunk of your car; and then ask them for cash or to Venmo you.

You want an online store, but don’t know how to get started. You’re a product maker, not a website maker. Don’t worry – we’re here to help.

Here’s how you can get started selling online:

    1. Decide on your budget. It’s best for all to know that upfront, so we’re not pricing an Amazon-look-alike site when you can only afford a simple buy now one-page website.
    2. Who is your target market? Who would most benefit from your product?
    3. Understand how your product benefits your customer. NOT a list of features.
    4. What would folks search for online to find a product like yours?
    5. What does success look like to you? Do you want to sell one widget a month? Do you need to sell 1,000 widget a month just to break even?
    6. Take some awesome pictures or how-to or testimonial videos of your product. Depending on your budget and product, you can hire a professional or take your own. There are some inexpensive light boxes available now, or even some DIY YouTube videos on how to build your own. Stuck? Ask us for referrals.
