• Types of ecommerce business models - which one is best?
    by /u/Abali1994 on May 19, 2022 at 11:59 am

    I want to start an ecommerce business. Used to have a brick-and-mortar store earlier. Faced a lot of losses in the last two years(damn coronavirus). Wanted to try something new. Something that doesn't ask me to rent a building and allow me to run my business from my couch. But there's a problem. I am not sure about what type of ecommerce business I should start. I heard there are different ecommerce models. Considering the current e-commerce market situation, what business model is right for me? What do you guys think? All suggestions are welcome and highly appreciated. submitted by /u/Abali1994 [link] [comments]

  • Any unique hiring processes?
    by /u/KanishkaWanninayaka on May 19, 2022 at 10:39 am

    I have a pretty sick process to recruit but it takes me 30 interviews to get 3 candidates and hire one. I took the slow approach to grow my digital agency - I realised super early that there are some killer talent in the digital marketing world but they’re really hard to find. So I focused less on sales and more on finding this talent. This success led to a lot of referrals so I need to grow my team to keep up but I’m having a hard time growing fast without compromising my hiring process. We’re now 12 people and I need to hire around 18 before the end of the year. I would love any tips or tricks you guys have to improve your hiring process. All of our talent is recruited from South America. This is what it looks like right now: We reach out to people that already have jobs in good companies through LinkedIn They fill in a google form with qualifying questions If they pass the google form test, they get a 10min screening call with our director of ops They get into a Technical interview with our Director of Marketing Services They get a 30min culture fit interview with me They get hired part-time for 30 days They get a full-time offer submitted by /u/KanishkaWanninayaka [link] [comments]

  • Email Deliverability: Best Practices You Should Know
    by /u/IvanBurban on May 19, 2022 at 9:02 am

    The requirements for email campaigns are extremely high and take a long time to develop. However, creating an email isn't all you need to do before hitting the send button. Here are 10 Things to Do Before Sending out HTML and AMP HTML Emails: ​ Make sure that your subject line is powerful enough ​ Subject lines are the first thing a user sees in their mailbox, so each of your subject lines must be clearly defined and relevant to the topic. ​ Check your sending schedule ​ You need to send email at the time when the user is most likely to open it. Based on Sendinblue, the CTR of emails sent between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. is significantly higher than at other times of the day. ​ Work out your email text ​ You can use various services that check grammar and other aspects of copywriting, for example: ​ • Grammarly ​ • ProWritingAid; ​ • Sapling; ​ • white smoke; ​ • Ginger; ​ • Paper Rater; ​ • Reverso; ​ • SentenceCheckup; ​ • Hemingway App. ​ Validate your AMP HTML emails precisely ​ AMP for Email increases the interactivity of email newsletters and makes them much more attractive and convenient for recipients. You can make your email more interesting by adding different interactive elements (carousels, accordions, and so on). ​ Double-check your links ​ You should make sure that all links and CTAs lead to the correct pages of your website and they are not broken. Otherwise, your email will have zero effect. ​ Mobile and desktop testing ​ According to research, 85% of users use smartphones to access email. So you should make sure your email looks flawless on both desktop and mobile screens. ​ Adopt autoresponders ​ All email campaigns should be send in the right time. Here are the most popular email autoresponders and email services with email automation before sending: ​ • SendX; ​ • Mailchimp; ​ • Moosend; ​ • MailerLite; ​ • Constant contact; ​ • Campaign Monitor; ​ • AWeber. ​ Overview visual part ​ Before sending an email, do not forget to check the following aspects of the design: ​ • Readability ​ • Purpose ​ Add some personalization ​ According to research, recipients are more likely to buy a product or service from a company that refers to them by name. It's the simplest thing you can do and it's definitely bring results. ​ Set KPIs to track further performance ​ You should definitely understand whether your email companies work properly. That's why you should have the right goals and track their achievement. Choose what is most important for your business at this stage. ​ Find more detailed information in our article https://stripo.email/blog/email-deliverability-best-practices-you-should-know/ submitted by /u/IvanBurban [link] [comments]

  • Forget about the ads... It's your store that sucks!
    by /u/MarcoRod on May 19, 2022 at 8:11 am

    Hi guys, I wanted to talk about a topic that I see over and over again on this subreddit as well as on YouTube comments, my email inbox, Instagram etc. This thread is for all the new eCom entrepreneurs just getting started, wondering why things are not working out, struggling to get sales. The main problem is usually one thing: The quality of your eCommerce store I get it, when you are new in eCommerce you want to go out there quickly and try to get people to your site. Inevitably, that means starting to run ads asap. In the end you want to validate your niche and your products quickly, right? Well, there is a massive problem in that: it's not 2013 anymore. Back in the days you could quickly put together a Shopify store and, without too much effort, get an "ok" conversion rate. These days are over. Everyone and their dog have Shopify stores. Every product gets sold 100 times already on Amazon, eBay and numerous stores. What used to be great before is now average. Having an "ok" design and some fake urgency and trust badges won't take you anywhere. It will, at best, be the absolute minimum necessary to participate in the game. Don't get me wrong, ads are important. I mean in the end ads are my bread and butter. But they are not everything. At least in the beginning your store design, product selection and pricing is SO much more important. Here is what you should do before spending the first $ on advertising: ​ Make sure your store looks great (best question: would YOU buy from it??) There are some really good free themes, but still you may want to consider a paid one. Yes it's an upfront investment, but a tiny one compared to the potential upside. DON'T (!) run a general store Have a super easy navigation with mega menus, sub categories, filters etc. (if you have lots of products) Do surveys, monitor visitors via HotJar, have Google Analytics installed for more data Pay massive attention to your product pages: High quality images are mandatory Don't waste time on writing 2,000 word product descriptions. Yes, they are important, but way less impactful than you think. A short, concise description of 2-4 sentences often does the trick. Play with discounts, promotions and urgency, but do so carefully without looking totally illegitimate (only 5 minutes left is a terrible idea) Include relevant upsells (hard to do with a general store, but possible with a niche one) ​ There are many more points, but I'm sure you get the idea. I guarantee that every hour (and potentially dollar) you spend on store optimization, carefully putting products together and designing your "funnel" will be so much more effective than ads, initially. Yes, later ads themselves become absolutely crucial, but they put gasoline on the fire. "Good" ads will never compensate for a shitty store. Good luck! submitted by /u/MarcoRod [link] [comments]

  • How to deal with clients selling my products .
    by /u/xente_bandana on May 19, 2022 at 6:10 am

    Hi! I will try to explain the situation better. I work for a company that doesn't sell direct to consumer, we sell our products B2B. Each one of our clients now have a store online. The problem we are dealing with is that some of our clients, have amazon stores, their own website and they are not respecting the prices for B2C (we can't enforce them to do it, at least that I know), so we are getting a lot of complaints from our B2B clients that "X CLIENT" is selling the product with a 50% discount for example. For me is clear that we should have our own ecommerce B2C, I think that will bring more sales in the long term as the brand has a lot of authority, but i am not pretty sure how to fix this problem in the short term for our current clients. Do you have any experience dealing with this type of situation? submitted by /u/xente_bandana [link] [comments]

    This is a Shopify site that I’ve been behind and building as an e-commerce business. The Shopify store theme is free as I want to gauge the actual market and get as much ground knowledge as I can in terms of e-commerce, marketing and growing a business. Basically I choose a free theme because I want to determine if this is a healthy investment or not. Products are sourced from AliExpress. Anyways, here is the website “MobilAssist.co”.

  • 1 store shared to 2 Facebook Accounts. Possible?
    by /u/silentspyder on May 18, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    Hi, I originally had 1 Website, 1 FB business page, and 1 Instagram, all connect. I published products through Printful, to my site, and it populated nicely to Facebook&Instagram. Recently I decided to branch of part of my business into a separate Instagram account. So ideally I'd like the new Instagram account to share store as my other account but I can't figure out how. I'd even be okay with just being able to tag products from the original account but it's new and I think I have to wait 30 days. How would I do this? I know I should wait the 30 days and see what opens up but I have a feeling I'll still have issues so maybe someone knows what to do. I also wound up making another FB business page for that 2nd instagram account, because I think you need too but it has no products. I'm a visual person, so maybe this'll help explain what I mean https://imgur.com/a/cNkyb5M submitted by /u/silentspyder [link] [comments]

    I am just starting out, I am in a rush to purchase my first round of products as it will be a month before they arrive from China but I need to know where the product is going to be shipped to first - ie. what 3pl I'm going to be using. I would like someone that is priced reasonably, works with smaller vendors, etc but that i can also GROW with. My goal is not to be small forever, so I want a 3pl that could nicely support me at my size now as well as later on? ​ Also any thoughts on Amazon FBA? Does Amazon fulfill orders if they aren't sold through the Amazon platform or only products sold on their site? Does anyone know about this?

  • Printing USPS and other shipping labels -- Laser printer, Inkjet, something else?
    by /u/pacergh on May 18, 2022 at 5:44 pm

    I currently have an HP Laser Printer (old P1102W) that I use in part to print USPS Priority Mail labels on Avery 5126 Labels for my priority mail packages. It keeps smearing and artifacting. This got me thinking—what are the better printers for sticky labels or other labels others use? I don't do high volume mailers, about maybe 10 a week average. But I do enough that I need to print them off and not handfill out the labels, etc. Are laser printers good for this, and I have the wrong one? Or are InkJet printers better? Are there some labels better than others? I.E. Is it my label? Any insight on how others make it work, especially you high volume folks, is appreciated! submitted by /u/pacergh [link] [comments]
