Open an online store - it's so easy!

You too can create an online store

I had to check it out & see if I could do it myself, after I purchased Payload Games, an auto updating video game site.

Yesterday I built 2.

The first is Stacy Bakes Cakes.  An online shop that sells bakeware., cake pans, cupcake pans, decorating tools, etc.
Stacy Bakes Cakes - Bakeware and Accessories

 

 

The second is Kennedale Racing (a old domain I'd once used to compliment a printed publication that still gets alot of traffic).  It's a now a car parts store!  It features Performance parts and accessories; stuff like air filters, spark plugs, engine parts...

Set it up

Amazon makes it easy.  To get started, login to your Amazon affiliate account.  Click on "astore," then "add a new store."

Then follow the instructions for selecting the products or categories you wish to sell.  For my sites, I choose amazon categories.  You'll be presented with pick and choose options for colors and layout.  That's it!  Your store is built.  Now all you've got to do is drive traffic and customers to your store.

To get started share the link of your store, or embed the link provided by amazon in your site/page.

My links are:

Share the news

This is the hardest part but here's a few suggestions:

  1. Get on social media.  Create social media sites for the store and invite your friends and colleagues
  2. Advertise online.  I've got a suite of about 12 sites and I run reciprocal banners on all of them.  If you'd like to run your banner on my site of sites, a 468x60 pixel banner is required along with $25 per month.
  3. Advertise in print.  Currently I'm running a classfied ad in a local college newspaper, not sure how effective it is just yet.
  4. Direct mail marketing.  Create postcards & mail them to your customers.  You can also use the artwork in email marketing.
  5. Email marketing - ask a friend to swap email ads with you.  Speaking of that - Interested in swapping ads with me?  Or I can send an email for you.

Who'd ever thought I'd be selling cake pans, video games & car parts?  LOL!

Good luck and let me know how it goes!
