Here are some tips on how to build an online store.

  1. Since you are starting a small business, I would advice you to go local. This greatly reduces the competition as well as reducing the time taken for delivery.
  2. Before you even create an online store for a particular commodity, it is of great importance to do a keyword search for your locality so that you can know what particular commodities are being searched the most by the locals. This is where you decide to sell a commodity that is most popular and not just a commodity that you just like selling.
  3. Give you online store a name(a domain name) that is easy to remember and if possible, use a use the most searched keyword of that commodity as the domain name.
  4. Content is what will drive customers into your online store. This is due to the fact that most of those who search online are searching for information about a commodity and not necessarily the commodity itself. It is your duty to give as much information about the commodity as possible and in the process you can introduce yourself as the commodity trader and believe me, most will trust you and will buy from you if they intended to buy the commodity elsewhere. This is what is called soft-selling.
  5. Your customers will be your best marketers. Exceed their expectations and you will be heavily rewarded with a repeat purchase and a referral. Speaking of referrals, do not fear to ask your customer to refer his friends to your online shopping store. Most of them will send you a good number of customers.
