Are you looking to sell a product online? If you are then there are many aspects to selling a product online and we will go through some of those aspects in this article here.

Selling Products Online – step 1- Research

Your first task if you are going to start selling something online is to do your research first. It is far better to start selling stuff to people who come looking for it in the first place and it is also good to know their motives for looking for what they are looking for. This is where search engines come in.

When someone wants to find out more information about something the first place they go is the search engines. That means you have to know what keywords people are typing in when they are looking for the product you want to sell and then optimize your website for those keywords so that you appear on the first page of Google. Ideally, you would want to make sure that you are targeting keywords without much competition and you are also targeting keywords that receive a decent amount of traffic.

This can be done using a keyword tool. You can find one for free over at Google Adwords but remember that this keyword tool is mostly for people looking to advertise using Adwords and not for people looking to do SEO. A better keyword tool is the one found at WA

Selling products online – step 2- Getting an online store

This is certainly not as hard as it sounds. If you are going to sell something in real life you need a store or a stand where you are going to sell the item out of. On the internet you also need one and this can be in the form of an eBay store or your very own website.

I would advise you go for your own website and you can make one at Weebly for free. This has some pros but also some cons which we will not get into in this article but we will discuss it in the coming pages. Opening your own eBay store also has an advantage like getting a large audience but there is also one huge pitfall called competition on eBay. This could erode away all your profits.

I would suggest you get your very own website where you do not have to take any orders from anyone about what you can sell and how you go about selling your stuff. WA also have 2 website making resources in site rubix and Wordpress Express. Use these.

There is a lot more to learn on this topic, so be sure you know what you are doing before jumping in boots and all.
