Increasing numbers of firms around the world have realised the growth potential of selling their products online through the World Wide Web.
Having an e-commerce website is a way of selling your wares without borders and can be significantly cheaper than setting up traditional bricks and mortar stores in key locations around the world.
In fact, because of the global and limitless nature of the Internet, you can technically sell to your global customers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!
However, as with traditional bricks and mortar stores, the way that your “store” is displayed to the general public can have a big impact on whether you are likely to attain high levels of sales through it or not.
By following these top 5 tips, you will be able to benefit from having an e-commerce website that virtually sells itself!
1. Make your product images stand out
You only have a few seconds to grab the attention of your visitors, and one thing everyone will always be drawn to first on a web page is imagery.
It is important that your product images stand out, because customers will scrutinise what a product looks like before they go on to read the text description of it.
Using small resolution, blurry or just downright awful products images will not help you to sell your products! If your camera skills are lacking, hire a professional product photographer.
