Get ready to discover how to optimize your platform and take your digital business to the next level!

1. Define Your Target Audience

Before launching an online store, it's essential to understand who your potential customers are. Creating a detailed profile of your "buyer persona" will help you target your marketing strategies and offer products and services that fit their needs and preferences.

  • Demographics: age, gender, education, profession, and income.

  • Location: geographical location.

  • Interests: attitudes, personalities, opinions, lifestyles, etc.

2. Write Product Titles and Descriptions

The product title should clearly state what it is. It's what customers will see when browsing the store and will help them find what they're looking for in your catalog. Use concise titles and specific product descriptions.

  • Think about what the customer needs to know to purchase securely.

  • Choose the most relevant features and benefits.

  • Anticipate common questions or objections.

  • Write for quick reading. Use simple descriptions, short paragraphs, bullet points, subheadings, and bold words.

  • Help customers visualize themselves using the products.

3. Set Prices

There are different variables that can influence the price of your products: shipping costs, raw materials, operating expenses (such as rent or employees), the cost of your time, and perhaps most importantly, the perceived quality of the products.

4. Manage Your Inventory

Maintaining an organized and up-to-date inventory is essential for the efficient operation of an online store.

  • SKU: used to track and manage inventory of specific products and variants. Create a consistent system with numbers or letters that make it easy to identify each specific item.

  • Barcode: often used in product resale or if you want to add barcodes to scan items and achieve easier inventory management.

  • Quantity: How many units of a particular product you have. If your inventory is spread across different locations, Shopify will indicate this.

5. Add Options for Each Product

If you offer different variants of products, such as sizes or colors, instead of adding each different option as a new product, you can add them as simple variants of the same product. Each option can have its own image, price, inventory, and a series of associated individual settings.

6. Organize and Label Your Products

Proper organization and labeling of products make navigation and searching easier for customers.

  • Product type: the product category used to identify each specific product.

  • Supplier: the product list can be filtered by supplier, making it much easier to sort inventory (information that customers don’t see).

  • Tags: keywords that can be associated with the product. Multiple tags can be added to a product, making it easier for customers to search the online store (information that customers don’t see).

  • Collection: allows organizing and selecting products for specific purposes and audiences.

7. Determine Shipping Details

In the shipping section of your online store, you'll need to provide all the information used to calculate shipping costs and print the corresponding label for each order.

8. Important Pages in Your Online Store

  • Contact page.

  • "About Us" page.

  • Frequently Asked Questions page.

  • Policies page: return, privacy, terms of service, shipping.
