Important steps for a start-up of the online shopping store

To what we need to be careful when building an online business, what niche we choose for a successful website build. Can I make an e-commerce website in parallel with my actual job?

Ok, let’s see what is your niche. From my analysis in present days there is rate of success for online ecommerce website with unique products, for example: handcrafted products, handmade unique items.

Why is different then having a website store as a reseller in retail ecommerce industry?

As a reseller margin of profits are way much lower then in a niche website production of items handcrafted and unique. That will mean you gonna have less income profits, so it is harder to re-invest your profits into a good marketing strategy.

If you create a niched website, most likely you gonna make items that you enjoy make them, thats a huge advantage, mostly because you are not gonna feel like you’re doing as a job, more like a hobby. The profits will have to be much more higher in this case. More profit = more cash flow for marketing and branding.

Can i start an online website store and yet keeping my actual job?

Yes, even if you have no experience in webdesign, but still you need to put some time into it.

You can hire a full stack developer to build the platform for e-commerce website. In fact, i do not recommend anyone to leave his job to start a website from scratch. Mostly, because it takes a huge time to have traffic, and to brand your business. Keep in mind that your website will be starting from last website build in that period, that place your website in google search results as last one. To increase rank it takes a lot of time.

Important steps for a startup online business website

  1. Establish a minimum budget
  2. Keep the website design simple, user friendly, easy to use
  3. Arm yourself with a lot of patience
  4. Don’t put return expectations too high, depending of budget allocation
  5. Allocate as much as you can some time for your business to understand it

  8. Do not overspend your budget in marketing at begining

So, therefore, if you have already a fixed job, you do not have to quit your job, you can start website with low amount of money and less time consuming. Let your website mature itself. Branding for a business can take years.
