Here are the steps to start an online boutique with WordPress:

Step 1: Choose a niche
The first step in starting your online store is to determine a niche market you’d like to serve. Focus on a niche that is profitable so you can see a return on your investment and build a profitable online store. It should also have searchability. Choose a field that you are passionate about.

Step 2: Find products and suppliers
Once you’ve determined your niche and target audience, it’s time to decide on your product or service line. You want to sell a product that’s not too expensive or one that everyone is searching for. It’s also important to make sure you have the resources, such as storage and shipping to accommodate your products.

Step 3: Create a business plan
When you start a business, you need a business plan. Define what your key goals and strategies are. Be clear about the vision of your brand and where you see it in the future. You also need to understand your target market so research more about the demographics and create a buyer persona.

Step 4: Select an eCommerce platform
There are a number of great eCommerce platforms to choose from. Each platform comes with its own unique set of features, which impact affordability, capabilities, and user-friendliness, so it’s worth taking the time to find the right one for you.

Step 5: Set up your online shop
Once you have decided which eCommerce platform you want to use, the next step is to create an account and begin building your online store. Bluehost WonderSuite provides you with all the necessary tools to build a fast, secure and stunning website.

Step 7: Promote your online boutique
Once your online store is up and running, you need to market it. The reason for this is that building a business through SEO is a key component in your long-term strategy. Also, share engaging content on social media for a strong brand presence.
