Choosing a remarkable domain name is vital to the success and marketability of your ecommerce site. So make sure to create a unique and catchy name for your site that can get the attention of your potential customers. However, make sure to run it on Whois in order to assure that you can use that domain and that no possible competitors are carrying almost identical domain name.

2. Invest on an efficient yet affordable web hosting

It is tempting to go for the big website hosting you commonly see. But with some research, you can find some reliable and efficient hostings that can give you more flexible and affordable rates. Once you found the right web hosting suitable to your needs, the next step is domain registration, which will basically secure your chosen domain name and the affordable hosting package.

3. Plan thoroughly for your web content

Content is king up until today. While the internet is still dependent on its users, website content will always be relevant. That is why planning your web content in detail is an absolute good move. Spend time to create your content scheme and be as creative and strategic as possible.

4. Prioritise customer service

All your efforts will go to sheer waste if you neglect prioritising your customer service. Remember that your buyers are the main point of your online shop. They basically run your eShop and without them, you will not be able to return your investments and of course earn. So always make time to know your customers’ feedback or suggestions that will enhance the productivity and service of your website. Aside from their feedback, they may also need some assistance in terms of the order process, payment and delivery, and may even have some questions to ask. Make time to assist or go the extra mile to actually help your customers the best way possible. You will never know what your extra mile can give you in return. Keep in mind that bad customer service will shoo away even your future potential clients.

Depending on your chosen social platform, plan in advance what you will post or when you will share your website’s contents in full details. Timing and knowing your target market’s social activities can help ensure your shareability of your posts. Therefore, be creative on sharing relatable and informative posts on your social media accounts to boost your marketability withour spending a dime.

Don’t be afraid to go all out on your pursuing your dream of building your own online store this year. Just go with your guts and be as resourceful and strategic as possible.

While everyone is making their big fat Indian wedding dreams come true, they are also adding their carbon footprint and undue energy consumption. Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset. It's become about incorporating less waste, locally sourced and seasonal food, natural materials over the use of plastic. Mindful wedding planning and decor includes the use of recycled paper and goods along with eco-friendly venue needs. Check out this quick guide to achieve a sustainably conscious wedding without compromising on luxury:

With the use of locally sourced materials and local artisans coming into play, the wedding instantly becomes sustainable. Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
