Does selling on the Internet cost?

In the popular consciousness, selling online is free. The idea is that there is no need to pay any rental fees before getting started. But if this assertion is mostly true, it is important to know the implications of selling online.

The creation of an online store

As with a physical store, it is important for those who want to expand their business online to think about the creation of a space that will reflect their business. For example, the site has its own graphic identity on the web. 

This intervenes to allow your prospects to recognize you. But to achieve this, you need a budget. This last one fluctuates according to the vision that you have of the completion of your platform. Indeed, the more complex it is, the bigger the budget.

The promotion of your store

Of course you need to attract the curious on your platform. Besides, they are the future prospects of your business. Moreover, without the promotion of your e-shop, it is assured that your business will not take off. 

Let me quickly explain the situation: imagine that you open your physical store a bit far from the roads (although in real life, there will always be people to take this way), how will you manage to attract people? 

Potential customers have to hear about you. It's exactly the same on the Internet. It is crucial for your business that you advertise it. Hence the promotion that you will institute. 

Several means are available: 

- sending e-mailing 

- diffusion of advertising banners 

- purchase of keywords 

Each of the above mentioned means are possible by partnering with a platform having a certain influence in the sales sector.
