You might be wondering why we’re about to discuss becoming an ecommerce business with you when virtually every brand with products to sell is doing so on its website. Well, that’s true. Any business worth its salt is likely to be selling its products already but not everyone is doing so on Amazon.
Amazon is hugely influential. In fact, it’s one of the biggest retailers in the UK. If you’re into statistics, you can find out more here. There’s no denying that Amazon is a tech powerhouse. With that in mind, your business could be missing out if you’re not utilising it. Any chance to elevate your brand and transform it into a household name shouldn’t be overlooked. At Truly, we have a dedicated Amazon expert who helps our clients when they decide to take the next step, which is just another way in which we do everything we can to help our clients. Let’s get into it.
Why You Should Expand Your Ecommerce Business On Amazon
Selling on Amazon in the UK isn’t just an option – it’s a strategic must for any business striving for more.
Broad Customer Base And Unmatched Visibility
With over 35 million monthly visitors, Amazon offers unparalleled visibility for your products. It provides an instant connection to a massive customer base actively searching for a diverse range of products, giving your ecommerce business the exposure it deserves.
Seamless Market Entry With Established Infrastructure
Amazon’s well-oiled machinery in the UK simplifies market entry. Its sophisticated fulfilment network, robust payment processing and comprehensive customer support system will allow your business to focus on what it does best – providing high-quality products and services.
Tap Into Amazon’s Global Reputation For Trustworthiness
Amazon’s reputation for reliability and trustworthiness is a powerful asset for any ecommerce business. Leveraging this reputation can help instil confidence in potential customers, fostering loyalty and repeat business.
What Do I Need To Do?
One thing that stops a lot of people from adding their ecommerce business to Amazon is the belief that there’s a lot of work involved, which simply isn’t true. We’re going to break it down for you. Please bear in mind that this will ultimately depend on what you’re selling. For example, the process is a bit different for selling books printed by Amazon.
Step 1 – Order Inventory
Get your products to your chosen distribution point, be it your stockroom, an ecommerce warehouse or an Amazon centre.
Step 2 – Storage Solution
Decide how to store inventory, tailored to your business size. Warehousing suits high-order volumes.
Step 3 – Process Orders
Once listed, market your ecommerce. Process orders, pack carefully and ensure safe delivery unless Amazon will be doing this for you.
Step 4 – Shipping Options
Choose how to dispatch, based on ecommerce business size. Small ones use local post, larger ones may ship from storage or use a fulfilment service.
Step 5 – Handle Returns
Ensure a smooth process for returns, replacements and refunds, as this is vital in ecommerce where returns are common.
