  1. Market Analysis

Knowing your target audience is a must for an eCommerce business to rule. Make market analysis, surveys, or go for a personal recommendation. Know your target audience’s needs and expectations from your website. This will help you with deciding the features for your website to give the best user experience.   

  1. Give a legal structure to your business  

One has to be clear with what legal structure they are going to own. For instance: 

  • Sole Proprietor - A single person is responsible for the entire business. 
  • Partnership -  Profits, finances, expenses, legal duties, etc. equally divided among the partners of the business. 
  • Corporation - Having multiple shareholders. 
  • LLC - No liability on a single person. The assets and profits will be segregated like shares.   
  1. Patent a business name and logo

Come up with an attractive name for your e-commerce business as this will be an identity of your business throughout. Brands are mostly identified by their logos more than names, get one designed for your e-commerce website as well from a professional logo design company.

  1. Buy a Domain Name

Buy a domain name that goes with your eCommerce business. It is recommended not to exceed 2-3 words and use keywords if possible. Make it attractive yet simple so your audience can easily memorize your website name. The more it is searched the better it will rank on Google.  

  1. Determine Your Product Lists

If you already own an offline business then you know which products will go on your website. But if you are planning to start as an online aggregator, you need to determine what products are going online, their price list, their source, and potential profit margin.  

  1. Develop an E-Commerce Website

Now that you know your market and your competitor sites, make sure you own a firm online presence of your brand. Outsource your requirements to a certified eCommerce website development company, do not take any risk with freelancers. Also, the speed of your website is highly dependent on your web hosting services. You can go for an open-source or shopping cart provider, discuss the benefits with your e-commerce web development company.
