Coach's Store Building Service Recommendation
Building an online store the right way takes A LOT of time and requires A LOT of writing. Our ecommerce training course teaches you everything you need to know to build your web store yourself... but knowing and actually doing are two very different things! Besides all the "technical stuff" like setting up your category structure, creating your product feed file and keyword-optimizing your meta tags, there's simply lots and lots (and lots!) of writing to do! If you want to have any chance of getting ranked well in Google, virtually every single page on your site (your home page, category and sub-category pages, brand pages and every product page) needs at least a couple paragraphs of unique, "hand-written" textual content. (Like we said, lots of writing!)
Care to skip out on all of that? Well, you're not alone. Dozens and DOZENS of other Store Coach Members have felt the same way you do! Although it is nice to learn the entire store building process yourself, it's probably even more important to you to get your store up and running. There will always be time to go back through the shopping cart platform and learn all of the nitty-gritty details after you've launched. It's most important to the vast majority of people to just get the store up and running first!
So, what all is included with a store build-out? Well, that's completely up to you! There are several things that can be included, but instead of trying to fit everyone into a "cookie-cutter" package, we leave it up to you to tell us what you want included in the store build-out. When you request your custom quote, you'll be asked which of the following things you'd like included in your store...
A Professional Store Logo
No one wants to shop from a place that appears to be run out of someone's garage. If you'd like to brand yourself as a true competitor in your market then it's essential that you get yourself a professional store logo. A good-looking logo will make you look like a major player in your market and will also make you more memorable for repeat customers. As part of your store build-out, you have the option of including a professional store logo. Optionally, you do have the option to buy one separately.
Home, Category & Product Content
Having unique content throughout your site is just about the most important thing you can do to make your pages appealing to major search engines like Google, Yahoo & Bing. Without it, they will have little to no reason to reward you with top rankings. The folks building your store will make sure all of the content that's added to your site is 100% unique and original. You can choose to have content written for your home page, category pages, and even all of your product page descriptions.
Standard Support Pages
Although support pages tend to be somewhat generic from site to site, it's important to have them on your site for a number of reasons. For a very nominal fee, the store builders can add all of the standard support pages to your website for you. By the time your store is finished, the only additional support page that you may want to create for yourself is an 'About Us' page.
Buying Guides & Articles
We suggest that every new store has a handful of articles or buying guides. These guides should be linked to from the home page, category pages, or even product pages. If you choose to have these articles or buying guides included with your store buildout, they will be linked to from all of these pages throughout your site automatically. Over time, you may want to add more articles to expand your knowledgebase but getting a few to begin with could go a long way to get you noticed by Google.
Slideshows & Banners
First impressions are everything. When a potential customer lands on your site, you literally only have a couple of seconds before they've made up their mind whether they'd even consider buying something from your site or not. Although having a slideshow isn't for everyone, it can definitely add a lot to the look and feel of your site. We suggest adding a few slideshow banner images to the home page of your site to make a good first impression on the customer. These banner images could feature products, talk up a seasonal sale, or mention your "amazing" shipping & returns policy.
