I’ve recently been hired by a small furniture retailer and wholesaler to essentially start the e-commerce department. I have been in the e-commerce business for about three years handling a range of things so I know my ins and outs but have never been involved in the very first steps. The stage we are at now is organizing data for listing, arranging meetings with freight companies, preparing a Shopify store for launch, and finding other suitable third-party platforms for sales.
What are some things I should know going in and how can I best sail this ship in the right direction? Thanks in advance!
