How to sell products online – The 9 crucial steps


Selling products online has never been easier. Gone are the days when you needed to code your own ecommerce website or pay a fortune to have someone build it for you.

In this guide we’ll look at how to start selling products online.

1. Identify the product(s) you want to sell online

If you don’t already have a strong sense of what kind of product(s) you want to sell online, then your first step is to come up with some ideas.

You’ll need to identify products that are in demand and that you can sell on for a profit.

Although there are a huge number of things to sell online, you might also want to focus on selling a limited number of products initially, before expanding your store in future.

If you already have a strong idea of what kind of product you want to sell online, you can begin researching demand, profit margins and competitors.

But if you’re starting completely from scratch, you’ll need to brainstorm some product ideas. Try starting with a broad category that you find interesting and then narrow it down to a specific niche, this should help you decide what to sell online.

For example, if you’re interested in fashion you might want to focus on selling a limited line of necklaces in the earlier days of your business, with the goal of expanding in the future.

This guide is aimed at helping you brainstorm product ideas.
