Why This Christmas is the Best Time to Get Your Own Website
Last month I wrote a blog post about preparing your business for Christmas, but now I have something more to say on that subject. If you don't have time to go back and read that older blog post, I'll summarise it now: essentially, I was just saying that it's best to get your business ready for Christmas nice and early, as you stand to see an increase in sales (and therefore work). Because of this it's a good idea to really push your marketing forward so you can capitalise on Christmas shoppers as much as possible. Beyond that, though, I want to give another piece of advice...
With Christmas coming up, perhaps now is the best time to get your own eCommerce website. If you already have an eCommerce website, fair enough, but if you're just selling over eBay, Amazon, Etsy or any other website that lots of people use for selling, maybe now is the time to stand out from the crowd. What are the benefits of having your own website? Well, firstly, it makes you look more professional; there are so many people selling on eBay (and the others) and a significant number of them are untrustworthy or trying to scam people. This can make people reluctant to buy from people on these websites. If you go the extra mile and make your own website (or have one made) it will show prospects that you are a serious, reliable business. Not only that, but having your own website gives you a place which is a unique reflection of your business; imagine if somebody goes online and does their Christmas shopping, buying from several eBay and Amazon sellers. Will he or she remember them? No, they'll only remember them as Amazon and eBay sellers. With your own website you're unique and you'll stand out in people's minds.
