Доступ по QR-коду

Вместо бумажных или пластиковых меню заведения все чаще предлагают воспользоваться QR-кодом — их обычно расклеивают на столах.

How to create an online store:

5 steps to your first order

icon

Choose a ready-made template and customize it

The "Online Store" category contains website templates with a ready-made structure and blocks. Choose the ones that suit you the most. To customize the template, change its color palette, fonts, and buttons styles. If you need more blocks and pages, add them by clicking on the relevant button in the site builder editor.

icon

Fill your site with products

Each product has its own web page, which is called a product card. On Weblium, you may add to your online store as many product cards as you wish. Your next step is writing a text to describe the product's key features and upload its images or video reviews. After that, you need to indicate the product's name, article, price, and status on the product card.
For each one, specify the main category. Remember, though, that one product can be located in different categories.

icon

Set up the payment process

You can change the order form to make it more suitable for your needs. We also recommend connecting a payment service to the site so that the client can pay for the goods online. At this stage, it is worth specifying the price format and currency (depending on the region) and setting up notifications about new orders by email or Telegram.

icon

Design your Homepage

Add a product block to the main page. Choose the most suitable product to display there. It may be bestsellers or new, unusual items.
You may custom product blocks by adding unique backgrounds, sliders, or animations.
You can also add a discount offer to the Homepage to attract customer's attention and motivate them to purchase your products.

icon

Publish and Promote

Your online store is ready to publish! Tell the world and all of your potential customers about your store, start promoting it. First, link your website to Google My Business and specify a service region: that will help to increase your store's visibility in Google. Your second step is setting up paid ads, targeted advertising, and content marketing. These tools help attract more customers in no time, but you need to learn how to use them.

How to find your niche?

In other words, how can you understand what to sell and who is your target audience?

Focus on your interests

What do you like to do in your free time? What are you good at? What do you study? What special skills or knowledge do you have? Answers to these questions will help you identify a suitable niche for you.

Find out what's trending now

Google Trends is perfect for this. Even if you already know what products to sell, try to search them in Google Trends too. With its help, you can analyze not only the frequency of relevant search requests but their seasonality. That allows you to understand how many people are interested in your products.

Try to explore a new niche for yourself

Start with simple market research, analyzing how your potential competitors work. Pay attention to their website design, pricing, and bestsellers.

Solve customer problems

People want to buy things cheaper, quicker, easier. Think about how you can achieve these goals with your store. To do that, you need to make purchases in competitors' stores and see for yourself what difficulties their clients face. Then give your customers a decision, and they gladly stay with you for a long time.

5 the most important online store pages

01. Homepage

People visit this page most often than others, so it must be eye-catching. It also has to contain important information for clients, including a brief business description, contacts, work principles, etc. It also would be great to add on the Homepage your best or newest products to attract even more attention.

02. Store

This page contains all the products that you have added to your website. Product categories are also located there. Such categories include a group of products with similar features.

03. About us

If you want, you may tell about yourself and your business on this page. The purpose of such a story is to convince clients that you experienced and are worthy of trust.

04. Contacts

Indicate all possible ways to contact you:
phone number;
email and physical address (if you have any);
links to social networks.
Duplicate this information to the footer of all pages of your website.

05. Blog

It is not a separate page, since a blog is a whole section of a website that contains many different pages. Use your blog as a marketing tool to drive traffic and sell your products.

Your online store awaits you here!

Pam Knight

Marketing Specialist

Amazing platform, super easy to use and fabulous support team who never give up on you until they find a solution for you, even if you are being a tad thick! It’s a relatively new platform but has surprisingly few problems, and those that come up are solved quickly and efficiently and since I am one to really push the boundaries, if anyone was going to find the glitches it would be me! Well done Team Weblium!

Jacquey Dougherty

President at Dougherty Financial Consultants, Inc.

Weblium created a very professional website for my Insurance Agency/Accounting Firm business. When I indicated that I wanted to be able to add news items/blogs on a regular basis, they were extremely patient with me in training me how to do it. They took the time to send me videos that were extremely user-friendly and easy to follow. When I have a question, I email it and a consistent member of the staff gets back to me literally right away. I highly recommend Weblium!
