For many, building an e-commerce business is a dream, but for others, its a reality, a dream come true. Building a normal traditional business is not what most people do in this technology era, online business is now much easier and faster to build and many are taking the advantage to build sellable products.

Online e-commerce business is so successful even all popular high street business have taken their business online. But to start trading online, the first thing is to create an e-commerce website.

Today, online business is no longer for professionals, just an average knowledge of using a computer can propel your career as an online business owner.

To build an e-commerce website from scratch, we have compiled a few key points to get you started today. This is for those looking for how to build an e-Commerce website from scratch, those who are determined and eager to start and become financially independent.

Here is how to build an e-Commerce website step by step:

Choose what products to sell online from home
Before venturing into eCommerce website business you first choose what products to sell online from home. An e-commerce website is not a high street shop, you choose to sell your products from the comfort of your home. If you go online, you will find that many websites sell just a particular product like a wristwatch, wristwatch for men, others can go as far as selling wristwatch for men, a wristwatch for women and wristwatch for kids all in one website. Others sell all branded electrical products in one website, like washing machines, phone, hoovers, televisions, home cinemas and much more from a single platform. The choice is yours, what works for A may not work for B.

You should do a thorough research to determine what products to sell online from home, consider doing a local market research. You should find what the locals are ready to buy, this is because people prefer to buy locally whether its online or offline, this is because they can relate with the seller easily than someone who is selling from another part of the world. When people buy from local sellers, its because they want fast delivery service, ease in case of returns and refund. Let’s say for convenience sake.

Create a business model
Creating a business model simply means identifying what channel to use to reach your audience. Most e-commerce businesses sell their products through Esty, Amazon, eBay and many others. While others sell directly from their e-commerce website by targeting their market through paid adverts, SEO (search engine optimization), and social media interaction.

Choose wisely, and don’t be in a haste to do what others do. Instead, follow existing models to create something unique or different. At GradecMedia, we provide SEO services and many more.

Choosing a domain name for a personal website
You have to choose a domain name and business name for your e-commerce website. To start, you have to choose a business name first, choose a business that relates to your chosen products. When you are choosing a business name that relates to what you are selling, it helps your target market to find you. The next is to choose a domain name, a domain name should be one that is related to what you are selling. Once your customers see your link, they are able to relate or identify you. If you are just starting an e-commerce business, you should use the shared domain, and once the business is grown you can use a dedicated server.
