How to Be Your Shop's Best Critic

It is important to step back periodically and get a fresh perspective on your online store, especially since there are so many factors involved in making your store a success. To make this process easy, you should create a checklist that looks at each and every little detail that governs your store. This list will help you devise ways to expand your store’s reach, analyze and adapt business techniques, be more efficient as well as stand out from the crowd. You can use this checklist as a guide to critique your own store and offer guidance to fellow sellers.

Focus on Photography- Unless you are a trained photographer, taking professional images can be difficult. There is more to photography than meets the eye. You need to examine image background, lighting, ensure images are the stated size and scale. For maximum impact, use all five image slots. If you have run out of pictures of your item from all angle you could include an image featuring the item packaging.

Ask a Friend- It is extremely important to ask others to be part of your feedback. Sometime you need others to tell you what you need to hear as opposed to what you want to hear. When you feel confident with a new idea for your store or list a new product, ensure you ask your friends, so you can get a fresh perspective.
