Wondering when it’s the right time to invest in an eCommerce website? Read on because this post was created for you.
Many businesses start out by selling on Instagram or marketplaces like Etsy. This is a great way to test the waters to see whether people will buy what you are selling.
But there comes a time when your brand outgrows these platforms.
Here are 3 signs your business is ready for its own eCommerce website:
1. You’re tired of answering so many DMs, WhatsApps and emails with back-and-forth conversations just to sell 1 product
Your own online store solves this by automating and streamlining the online sales process so you can sell on autopilot 24/7. This frees up your time to focus on things that actually move your business forward – like marketing and product development.
2. You want to get strategic with your digital marketing
With your own online store, you can do awesome things like: build your email list; create social media ads including super effective retargeting ads; and set up Google Shopping ads. These actions help you scale.
3. You want to give your customers a distinctive and user-friendly online shopping experience
Creating your own online store helps your brand to stand out in a crowded market. A branded store with your logo; brand colours + typography; beautiful visuals and words that resonate is the perfect way to attract more of your ideal customers and make it easy + appealing for them to buy from you.
