SELLING CLOTHING ONLINE: BEGINNER’S TIPS ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESSJuly 26, 2014
An online clothing boutique isn’t exactly a way to make a million dollars overnight. However, if clothing is your passion and you have a distinct vision, there are ways to build a company that will stand the test of time and earn you a solid living. If you’re lucky, you might even turn that small company into one that sells in retail stores all over the world or develops its own brand. While the possibilities are endless, you need to get your boutique off the ground first.
Use these tips to help build the best online clothing store you can and start earning money instead of spending it.
Before you even start selling a single piece of clothing, you need to know exactly who you want to sell to. Is your crowd an urban, hip one, or are you targeting busy professional men? Decide who you think your ideal client is before you focus on your marketing efforts.
Use Your Blog Wisely
A boutique clothing store online needs to have a blog to promote itself and stay abreast of industry changes. It’s also a great way to spread the word about your store for practically no money. When you first start out, try posting every day. Fashion tips are always good, but make sure they involve products you sell.
Social Media Matters
Like a blog, social media is hugely important for an online clothing store. You’ll want to get involved and post as often as possible – up to a few times per day. Always respond to customers and try social media giveaways to spread the word.
