How to Start an Ecommerce Business

In the wake of the COVID pandemic, more and more people are looking at how to start their own eCommerce business. Some people had time to explore new ideas during the lockdown, and others are looking for ways to continue to work from their own home when their day job would like them to return to the office.

Identify an Opportunity

Identifying an opportunity is what sparks a new business into life.

  • Maybe you have decided to turn a hobby into a business and are selling handcrafted goods online, or you may have spotted a gap in the market and had a new product manufactured to fill it.
  • It may be that you are using a drop-shipping model where the orders are placed through your website then fulfilled by a third party.
  • It might be that you are a novelist who has finally taken the opportunity to self-publish and who is now wondering how to get your work out into the world.

The above are just some potential scenarios, but there are many different types of business origin stories and times of upheaval like we are currently experiencing will always see a massive spike in new business start-ups.

Ecommerce design is the vital next step, and this usually involves putting together a webshop storefront. This may sound like a highly complex step, but you don’t need to do the web design yourself; we are here to help.
