As businesses are moving to the online mode, the buying and selling that was previously done in shops have now got a revamp. The online mode of business is not very different from that of physical reality. However, these have to step up to fill in the gaps that are created.

For this purpose Shopify – a commerce platform stepped up and is giving businesses the edge they need to be on the web.

The Shopify theme store has managed to give many online businesses a great design aspect. Selling online has never been easier.  Whether it is Shopify payments or Shopify offers, you are in for a great platform. Here’s a step-by-step guide on the platform.

What is Shopify?

As said, a commerce platform allows anyone to set up an online store and start selling. Whether you are a wholesale or retail or luxury business, whatsoever. Anyone can now begin sales on the web.

How to get started with the eCommerce platform?

A doubt that many may share is how this commerce platform enables businesses to buy and sell on the web. When you subscribe to the platform you, as a business owner, get access to an admin panel. This admin panel is the space where you can set up your ‘shop’ in the sense that you are able to add products to it, store data, and even process orders that are incoming.

Here’s how you get started with the account.

A plan in place 

Knowing what your strategy is going to be and how you are planning to stand out from the masses of ventures on the web, is the first step to eCommerce and have a Shopify store.

Sourcing products

In order to sell to your customers, you also need to have tie-ups with retailers and manufacturers and it is best to see this process complete before the actual setting up of the virtual store.

Research

Researching the trends of the market and what makes for a great audience base is primary when it comes to online shopping. You need to identify your target audience and then check out the keyword searches that they are performing. All of this will give you an insight on two things, firstly how well you can expect to do in the market and secondly, whether your strategy will work.

Get a brand name!

Your audience needs to know you in order to remember you. Getting a brand name, having a logo that is centric to your business design, and buying a domain is the next step that follows.

Upload your products!

Once your design is ready, you can begin uploading your products and services to the account. Ensure that the tags, descriptions, titles, and pictures are optimised so as to feature in the keyword searches that people make.

Check performance

Google Analytics is a wonderful way of knowing if your customers are taking action and making purchases, the kind of audience you are attracting if they are in your niche, and what strategies of yours are performing well.

Marketing ads!

Organic reach is great but eCommerce ventures would do well to run promotional ads and campaigns that check the pulse of the market and cater to the audience’s limited attention span. Invest wisely in marketing ads that are quirky, build brand recognition, and are a pro for your eCommerce business.

How does Shopify work?

While ‘anything’ can be sold on Shopify, you may be wondering to what extent this is true. What does your business involve?

Is it something tangible or is it a service-based venture?

Here is a gist of the kinds of businesses that employ Shopify.

Physical products

Physical products are those that can be touched, held, and take up space. Examples of these businesses could be daily essentials, clothes, accessories, linen etc. Such businesses profit greatly by using Shopify in the sense that they can set up their virtual store and have the items listed in sections with previews and pictures that give customers an insight into what these appear like.

Service-based ventures 

These kinds of businesses could have more reviews. Clients who avail of the services could write their feedback, pictures of the ambience or clinic or blogs would work extremely well in these cases. Examples of these businesses are doctors, interior designers, etc.

Digital services 

There are several of these that you can find on the web. Templates, audio downloads, ebooks etc. are sold online and are huge businesses. If you are an example of this, you can have your own Shopify store.

Learning modules 

Whether it is hiring a tutor, taking courses online or renting books etc. these ventures to get a great customer base online.

Membership based services 

Certain ventures operate on the basis of membership. A Shopify account works wonders in these cases, as you can provide member-only access to your site.

What are the benefits of a Shopify account?

Once you get the experience of the virtual store and how customised the process of selling can be, you will love experimenting with bettering the consumer experience. This is due to its:
