Hire an creative e-commerce virtual assistant to maintain your new or existing online store.
Our VAs can save lot of your time by providing on demand support to update your store on regular basis as well as provide you technical and SEO support to scale up your online presence.
For many SME's it can be a real battle to setup and manage their online store on a regular basis. An E-commerce platform requires lot of maintenance tasks such as add new products, update products, image optimizations, update pricings, update SEO modules, manage users, shipping, manage holiday promotions, affiliate management and other related tasks.
Sometimes these stores required technical updates such as new module developments, server side script up gradations, code optimizations, design or layout changes, shipping zone customization, inventory updates, server migration, and lot other programming & maintenance tasks which should be done by a professional developer.
In short either store owners need to spend lot of time to manage their online store or hire a specialized resource to accomplish each task on day to day basis which is sometimes a costly affair for SME’s who own small online stores.
Whether it is bringing in new customers, marketing the site, growing the online product options or simply creating a new site, an e-commerce VA can help you scale up your business in any way that you like.
Today business owners tend to be good at what they do, running the business. Unfortunately not many have the knowledge to create and run effective e-commerce websites as well as being able to run their business. And even for those that can time can be tight.
Thankfully there are people that can not only design and create your e-commerce site in an affordable manner but run it as well. These are e-commerce virtual assistants – they can save you time, money and help you turn a profit from your online venture.
Common E-Commerce Management Tasks
One of the most frustrating factors on running an online store is the amount of admin it requires. There seems to be no end to aspects that need your input, you to manage them – aspects that are taking you away from running your business and making money. Think of e-commerce management tasks such as:
- Uploading new products prices, descriptions and images
- Altering price points as prices change
- Backing up the database
- Answering customers questions and queries
- Dealing with spam
- Optimising the site
All in all it can see like the e-commerce management tasks will never end. BUT you can tap into the power of virtual assistants to have someone do it all for you. Virtual assistants are able to do all this and much more.
Help with E-commerce Site Optimisation
There are two major points that need optimising on an e-commerce site. On page SEO (search engine optimisation) which helps the search engines to put you higher in their rankings, and sales flow tasks. And an e-commerce VA can be just what you need for both.
A talented virtual assistant can not only manage your e-commerce admin tasks but also help you (or do it by themselves) test and tweak the site so that it is the best sales flow that it can be, funnelling people towards making buying decisions.
Managing your Back-end sales work
The back end business stuff is also something that you can get a good e-commerce VA to do. So if you want them managing your inventory, saving you that task that is something that they are able to do.
You can have them place orders as and when new inventory is needed, you can have them run content management systems that alerts you to when new orders are needed, or maybe you want them to order the deliveries to be made via your suppliers/warehouse etc? Whatever back-end sales work you want done you can use a talented e-commerce VA to do it for you.
Help with updating your Store Design
The site design is vital. Not to make the site look pretty but to make if effective. E-commerce is all about what sells, not winning awards for pretty and clever designs. This means you need to know something about layouts, click through rates, shopping cart drop outs etc., or hire a virtual assistant who does.
The right design can, by itself, turn a failed e-commerce venture into a profitable one. And it needn't be expensive. You can find very affordable e-commerce VAs who are able to design and code sites for you to very high quality.
Scaling Up your online presence with the help of a E-commerce Virtual Assistant
One of the biggest advantages of using e-commerce VAs is that they can help to free up business owners to scale up their online presence or other businesses by providing time saving and more of an income. This can be done in two ways:
- Growing the current site in terms of traffic and/or number of products sold
- Setting up brand new e-commerce site ventures
This is important because the aim of many SME's is to scale up their online presence and dominate the marketplace in the niches that they are looking to exploit. By freeing up time from the basic e-commerce management tasks the virtual assistants mean that you can grow your online presence quickly and easily without worrying about things 'slipping through the cracks' or over extending yourself.
