• Take to the Web: Your E-Commerce Checklist


Helpful Holiday Hints:

Take your awesome in-store selection to the web with a shiny new e-commerce site.


This holiday season has proven to be bigger on mobile than ever.

Not only are customers browsing online stores on their smartphones and tablets, they’re buying.

How many sales are you missing out on because your shop isn’t online?

Take your store to the web! Your customers will love getting their hands on your cool products from the comfort of their own home. And you’ll love making more sales than ever.

In the kickoff of this year’s holiday shopping, global retailers all agreed that online shopping hit record numbers. With the Black Friday crowds getting crazier every year, people sat back and filled their virtual shopping carts this year instead of fighting for the goods in person.

Though consumers on smartphones tend to browse, those on tablets buy. What does this mean for your e-commerce site? It needs to be perfect on both mobile and traditional screens!

Ready to put your shop online? Here’s your checklist:

◊ Get a great domain name (if you don’t already have one)

◊ Organize your inventory: Have a detailed list of every item

◊ Take high-quality, high-resolution photos of your products

◊ Find an e-commerce platform and a credit processor so you can take payments online

◊ Maintain clear branding in your colors, logo, and style

Ensuring that your company’s brand and personality come through in your online store is crucial to your success. Everything from your url to your store photos should reflect your real-life shop so customers recognize and trust your online shop.

Once you’ve got all the pieces in place, you’re ready to build your e-commerce site (or have one built for you)!
