With the vast array of advantages to ecommerce, it’s no wonder that people are flocking to the web to launch new businesses and become their own bosses.
There’s no limit to how much money you can make with ecommerce, but before those sales can begin rolling in, you’re going to need to create a top-notch website for your store.
That's where WiziShop comes in!
Your ecommerce website is where many of your customers will get the first impression of your business. Building a professional, high-quality website that accurately reflects your brand and presents your products in the best way possible is therefore key.
In fact, a poorly created website is one of the top reasons why an online store might not be selling well. Fortunately, designing a great website for your online retail business is easy with the WiziShop platform!
At WiziShop, we believe in giving our WiziShoppers (owners of stores on the WiziShop platform) all kinds of freedom and flexibility. When you create your online store with our ecommerce solution, you’ll have access to not only our wide range of design templates but to your site’s HTML, CSS, and FTP files. This allows you to customize the look of your website even further.
Our easy-to-use WiziBlocks are based on the drag-and-drop method and allow you to design a beautiful, efficient homepage in no time. This unique system ensures that you can structure the layout of your website precisely as you wish.
Adding photos, videos, and text is a stress-free process, even if you don’t consider yourself to be particularly adept with technology!
This step is definitely an important one to becoming an online retailer, as it involves adding your amazing products to your online store.
This is also where you should plan to include various details to help persuade your site visitors to make a purchase. Make them feel like they NEED to buy your products!
The space you have to describe your products is limited, so you’ll want to use it carefully. Rather than simply listing the product’s features, try to show potential customers how this product can help improve their lives. If you’re in a hurry to launch your website, simple descriptions will do, but remember to go back and add more detail later!
You probably understand from your own online shopping experience that the price of a product is a very important factor for customers. Your product prices should be clear and easy for your store’s visitors to be able to find.
Do your products come in multiple sizes, shapes, or colors? If so, you’ll need to add the different variations to your store, noting that including a separate photo for each of the variations is ideal.
This will help give shoppers a better idea of what they’re buying and can make the difference between a customer deciding to leave your site or finalizing a purchase.
If you’re just starting an online retail business, you might be offering products in limited quantities until you get a feel for how quickly items will sell.
Add your product stock numbers to your ecommerce website so that customers don’t purchase a product that’s no longer available, as this creates a poor shopping experience.
When building your online store, you’ll need to choose your URL, which is simply the web address people will use to find your site on the internet.
If possible, plan to have it match the actual name of your business, as this will make it more memorable for potential customers.
You’ll be able to purchase a domain name for your URL while creating your website on the WiziShop platform, or you can simply add it if you’ve already got one.
When you fill out the “title” field as you’re building your store, you can simply add the name of your business. If you haven’t already decided on a name at this point, be sure to put some careful thought into it.
For the meta description, you’ll provide one or two sentences describing the concept of your store to further entice potential customers to visit!
