3 signs your brand is ready for its own ecommerce website

Wondering when it’s the right time to create an online store for your brand? Read on because this post was created for you.

Many businesses start our selling on social media 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 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 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 better; create social media ads including super effective retargeting ads; and set up Google Shopping ads. All of these things drive your business forwards.

3. You want to give your customers a distinctive and user-friendly online shopping experience

Creating your own online store really helps your brand to stand out for the right reasons. 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.
