Five eCommerce Goals for 2018

New year, new resolutions, new goals. Whilst the running trainers may have already edged their way to the back of the wardrobe, we’re here to help you plan, achieve and even smash your 2018 online retail goals. Let’s get started:

1. Reporting

Getting your reporting in order is a brilliant way to start the year. Clear and clean reports make it easy for you to plan your stock, see and anticipate trends, strategise your business and, ultimately, increase your profits. Do a complete audit and tidy-up of your current reports and then treat yourself to Expandly, which gives you quick access to automated reports from across your sales channel(s).

2. Expand

With nine in ten UK SMEs planning to sell online this year, increased competition means that you need to expand your exposure to online shoppers. How? With multichannel selling of course! Expanding your online presence from your own website to Amazon, eBay and Etsy, means that there is even more chance that Mr eBay or Miss Amazon will find you. Sound complicated? It’s not! Multichannel management software, such as Expandly, exists to take all the complexities of multichannel selling away, affordably.  Allowing you to easily integrate your own shopping cart with Amazon, eBay and Etsy, as well as order management, inventory management, accounting integration and reporting functionality. 

3. Improve Customer Feedback

Customer feedback is huge. One negative comment can turn away 22% of your potential customers and four or more can take up to 70% of business away. Accurate product descriptions, in-stock items and prompt delivery are all excellent ways to increase customer satisfaction and feedback. Multichannel management software helps you to avoid listing errors, manage your inventory and quickly create packing lists and shipping labels, from one central and easy location.

4. Save Costs

We all want to increase our sales and decrease our costs. Multichannel management software can be expensive but Expandly was built with small businesses in mind, meaning a small and easy to afford monthly cost, as well as a free demo.

5. Increase Your Work-Life Balance

Everyone could do with a little less screen time and a little more beach time. Multichannel management software, such as Expandly, saves you time by collating all of your online marketplaces into one central location, as well as bulk listings, automated reporting, live inventory management, picking lists and shipping labels. With all that free time you’ll have no option but to spend it on the beach!
