Starting any business can be a difficult task; and even though times are changing and the internet has made it possible for many people to start their businesses online, it can still be an intimidating process. There is so much information out there, and for some, answering the core questions of ‘How? Who? What? Where? Why? When?’ can be tremendously difficult.
For others who’ve been earning their bread and butter via the traditional route – through brick and mortar, there could be some reluctance transitioning to the digital world as they feel comfortable with where they are and what they know.
Nevertheless, there is no doubt that e-commerce is one exciting avenue for success, especially since the COVID-19 pandemic, which has offered a different outlook to many existing and potential sellers. Many are now taking the leap towards selling online and even converting their business to be fully digital.
If you happen to be one of those dreaming of jumping on the e-commerce bandwagon, you can start your journey with us here at Lazada. With Lazada, it doesn’t matter if you don’t know how to get started or what the process entails. We’ve got your back, from setting up a store to its eventual success!
After signing up as a Lazada seller, there are three simple steps you should follow in order to start your journey successfully on Lazada.
#1 The Power of 5 (PO5)!
After you’ve finished filling up your basic store details, it’s time to remember the Power of 5 (PO5). These are your basic guidelines that will help you bag your first order. You need to remember to use Lazada’s Store Builder, Seller Picks, Chat, Lorikeet, and Promotional Tools.
Store Builder helps to enhance your customer experience. Imagine walking into a store and seeing it empty without any furniture or deco. You would very likely walk right out. It is as crucial to have a well-designed online store. Lazada’s Store Builder tool helps sellers to create store pages that are distinctive and stand out with fully customisable layouts. Meanwhile, Seller Picks will help boost traffic to your store while utilising the Chat function helps build customers’ trust and loyalty.
Lorikeet is a tool that enables sellers to describe their products in detail, which can help create higher conversion rates. Last but not least, Promotional Tools help you entice customers with vouchers and free shipping.
