This is a blog post for those of you who are new to the world of selling online. If you've been using Sellr for a while, but read the blog just to find interesting information or things to integrate into your business, this post won't be for you. But if you're somebody who has heard that the internet is a good place to earn money and open up your own shop, you've come to the right place! I'm going to go over the basics of opening up an online shop and hopefully provide you with all the information you need to get started with Sellr.


The first thing you should know is that it is actually very easy to open up your own online shop, but it's not easy to be a success. Before you get started you'll need to think up some kind of business plan: what are you going to sell? what is your budget? how will you market yourself? what is your unique selling point? These are all questions you need to ask yourself. Since it is so easy to set up an online shop, there are a lot of them out there which have essentially been abandoned and that's probably because there wasn't much thought put into them at their inception! Once you've got a solid idea, it's time to put your plan in action.


To take the first steps towards starting your own online shop (or eCommerce business, to sound more professional) you then need to sign up for Sellr. There are a few different versions of Sellr, three of which are paid services, but if you're just getting started with your business, I shall assume you want to spend as little as possible, so you can go for Sellr FREE which, you guessed it, is totally free.


Once you're signed up, it's just a case of creating the website. Creating a website might sound like a daunting task, but luckily for you, Sellr makes the process incredibly simple. First you choose the template which is best for you; these are essentially blank, pre-made websites which you can then easily tweak to match the style of your business. Then you upload your logo (and there are logo makers available to help you) which you can then put anywhere on your website to mark it as your own. You're allowed to sell up to twenty-five items with Sellr FREE, so, you can then start filling in the details and uploading the photographs for each of them. In a short space of time, you can have your website all ready.


So what are you waiting for? If you thought it would be nice to start an online shop, Sellr gives you the power to make that happen. This could be the perfect opportunity to make some money out of a crafty hobby you have or just a simple a way to get a little extra cash! Whatever your goal, Sellr is worth your time, and as it is free, you've nothing to lose by giving it a try
