Mapping Out Your Online Store

January 28th, 2021

As tempting as it may be to just dive in and get started, you should really take a moment to plan. Whether you are going to sell children’s toys or athletic socks, things will go so much more smoothly if you take the time for mapping out your online store.

Home is the starting point of any website. It is your welcome page, your store front, the place where you convey your brand the most. Everything branches off the home page – so start by creating a list of the pages you want to include and break them into categories.

For example: Mapping Out Your Online Store Simply

This would be a simple site of course, but you don’t need to complicate things! So we have the home page, and from there we will branch off into our business information and products for sale and then the sub-pages from there.

You can easily make bullet points for what you want to include on these pages so you can see if you maybe you need to create more pages for other important information.

Page Examples

An example of that would be the Order Info page. Let’s say you talk about how to order from you, the method of payments you accept as well as shipping information on this page. But then you want to also talk about returns/exchanges and your official terms & conditions and your privacy policy. That page will start to get super long! So if you find that you are going to stack too may topics on one page, consider making other pages to address those other topics.

Then you would add on to the Order Info and have sub-pages under that for Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy, Returns/Exchanges to create 3 other pages.

For Contact Us, maybe you want to include sub-pages for your social media feeds or maybe you want to create a sub-page with FAQ’s?

Choices and options for what you decide to include on your site are endless. Use this simple mapping chart to help you organize your thoughts and to make sure that you will be including everything that you need to on your site. Use it as your starting point roadmap that will guide you to a fully finished website!

And don’t forget… if you need to find wholesale products to buy from real wholesale suppliers, look no further than our Directory

Your Online Business Equipment List

January 20th, 2021
Online Business Equipment

You may be wondering what type of equipment you will need to start an online business. One of the best things about online business is the low overhead. (overhead means operating expenses). You don’t have to take out loans, pay rent, remodel your storefront, pay license fees, pay employees and etc.

A lot of these traditional retail tasks are eliminated with an online business. But there are things like instead of painting the walls of your store, you pick colors and graphics for your online store. Other than paying your landlord a rent check, you are paying for hosting instead.

The main expenses for your online business are computer related; software and hardware. Internet, email, networking, programs & applications that you will need to run smoothly and efficiently. You obviously don’t need the best of the best here. You will find things that can fit any budget.

Great news! If you already have a computer and an internet connection, you are already mainly there and so upgrading your equipment may be unnecessary. But also keep in mind that older devices and programs are lacking in new features and connectivity for technical aspects of your business. So if your computer is frustrating you due to slow speeds, then you should research to upgrade your machine or get a new one.

Your computer is your main device for work, and so eliminating as much frustration and stress just by buying a new device will save you so much headache in the long run and will allow you to enjoy what you are doing so much more!

Computer software can add up!

Software is a biggie here. Software can be extremely expensive and the different kinds of things you need can quickly add up.

Office programs like Excel are a must have. With Microsoft 365 for Business you can pay monthly and have access to cloud storage, email and office applications across all your devices. Having this flexibility is super important. If your computer crashes, you will have all your saved things on the cloud to access from another computer quickly. I know that cloud saving with apps like Dropbox have been extremely important for us!

Don’t forget security! You will have access to customers private information. It is your duty to ensure that information is protected as much as possible with anti-virus and internet safety programs. Secondly, viruses are always popping up online and sometimes in surprising places. So just do the right thing and protect yourself and your customers. Norton360 is an excellent program for this!

Storefront Software – thankfully with most store hosting companies these days, they put a nice administration area together for you to use for your online store. So buying other site building, shopping cart type software is eliminated with getting the one service. Bundling as much together as possible is definitely the way to go when you are just getting started. If you can pay just a handful of companies for their services or programs, it will be easier to manage. As you get comfortable and familiar with how things work, then you can start looking into cutting more costs.

You need accounting!

The last thing we will talk about here is accounting software. You can hire an accountant to handle everything for you, or you can do it yourself by using awesome programs like Quickbooks. Quickbooks will integrate to allow you to automatically pull your transactions in to the system for easier tracking and reporting.

You will need other things down the road, like promotion applications and services for marketing and perhaps graphic creation software to edit and create images. But what we have above are great resources for you to start an online business.
