Ok, I am going to show you some tough love. Yes, YOU!
To all the people I talk to each week, why don’t you have an e-commerce website yet? What are you waiting for??? Many of you tell me your woes of not having any money.
But…. you have a product which you can sell. Why aren’t you selling it?
Oh, you are waiting for the perfect boutique to call you back and place an order. Well, considering the state of the brick and mortar stores out there, you may be waiting a LONG time.
If you had an additional $2,000 each month would that help your business out? Would that pay for your office rent or some more raw materials?
Ok, your website doesn’t have to be perfect. You can start a page on ETSY and then transition to ETSY. The designer from Oia Jules she started out as an ETSY brand and look at her company now. It is truly flourishing. She built her platform with ETSY and then built out a proper e-commerce site.
GoDaddy has their website platform. I don’t love it but it is at least something. Other options are Shopify, Magento or Big Commerce. Or you can post an ad on Odesk or Elance and get bids for websites.
I am urging you to get something up because you are just losing sales. You are losing retail sales and possible wholesale sales because store buyers are looking at your page. They are, trust me.
Now go and work on your site and email me when it is done!
