For a lot of people, starting their own website is something that can be a very daunting step, however we are here to tell you that it can actually be pretty easy, if you know exactly what you are doing. All you need is a good website builder and an ecommerce platform, like Shopify, in order to build an ecommerce in just under 30 minutes and you will immediately be able to start selling. One of the biggest benefits that you will get when you have your own ecommerce is the fact that you will have complete control over it, which is definitely not the case with Amazon and other marketplaces. This means that you will be in charge of everything, from your design, to where all your social media buttons go. Another great, and pretty obvious benefit, is the fact that when you have your own website everything is about you. When you are present on a marketplace you have to share the “playing field” with hundreds of thousands of sellers worldwide which can be problematic.
