A few things to consider when building an e-commerce website:
First of all, a web hosting account and domain name are required in creating an e-commerce website. We charge $79 per year, and a domain fee – so this should not cut a huge chunk out of your budget.
To accept credit cards from customers, you will need to set up an individual merchant account. You can set up a business account with PayPal, and a merchant account is free. PayPal charges a small transaction fee charged for each purchase from your website. You must also learn how to install a shopping cart on your hosting account. Because of this, PayPal is the easiest and most recommended way to begin building an e-commerce website.
Next, you will have to decide on page names and categories for your e-commerce site. Because your website is more than likely going to have multiple and various products, the pages of the site might want to be named by category and using something called breadcrumbs, After figuring out your product links, you will need to add a page about your e-commerce website, a contact page so your customers can communicate with you, and a home page for your website. You want to make your site as navigation-friendly as possible. It’s a good idea to have a few friends or paid associates test your site before inviting actual customers.
Use Adwords, Social Media, and SEO to Promote Your Website
To promote your website, begin adding it to search engines and appropriate directories. Use Adwords and social media like Facebook to bring attention to your website. Another simple way to help get your site’s brand out there is by adding it to your real comments online (user content). It allows possible visitors to locate your website and helps with the search engines. Make sure to join niche communities that have and become an active, helpful member. If you are sincere and provide useful information for the other members, they are more likely to click on your website’s link and possibly become a customer.
