My best advice to eBay merchants looking to move some of their business to the more stable ecommerce platform is to completely “unthink” the eBay and get some help. Find a professional ecommerce developer and listen to everything they tell you…. Even if it goes against your eBay grain.
Pay attention to your online store and develop it into a great destination for online shopping in your niche. Your shop is not a business card… Its a customer sales person who works 24 hours a day and 7 days a week!
2008 has been a pretty fair year for ecommerce stores in the US… Despite the growing concern over our economy. The question now becomes, what does an ecommerce business need to do in 2009 to grow their sales and be successful.
