TIPS FOR SELLING ONLINE
Time, patience and a strong, reliable customer service are the cornerstones to the success. We all want to be overnight successes, but sometimes it can take time to build your brand presence. Remember that you started your business because you believe in it, a great brand always starts with the owner believing in themselves.
Let’s talk images, there are a few tips that will help set you apart from the crowds.
- Use your own images – It sounds simple but it is really important to ensure that the content you put out is authentic and original.
- Make sure the lighting is a natural as possible so that the real colours show up.
- Get yourself a good camera – Quality pictures do require a good camera, so don’t scrimp!
- Be consistent – Creating a set or stage where you take all your pictures will allow your customers to know that you are serious and your brand is here to stay!
SELF-STORAGE FOR ONLINE BUSINESSES
Here at Hills, we have a wide range of small businesses that use our storage rooms to enhance their online business. We reached out to a few to see what they have to say about operating from a storage room.
“I started the business from home, and moved into a storage unit after just a few months. It means the house is free from boxes of stock, and I have set business hours. Plus, storage units are not that expensive, I can expand the size of my shop when I need to, and there is no long term commitment, so I feel in complete control of my business!”
“Originally I was looking for low cost solution to store extra store for my business, however, after spending some time in the unit packing deliveries, I quickly realised that I there was so much I could do from my unit! I now have 3 units, all perfect for different things – one holds stock, the other is a studio where I take pictures and the third is used as a production station, I couldn’t be happier and my home is now a home again!”
