Images and Logo

The visual aspect of your brand is the heart of all your branding, and they are the elements that will make your brand more recognized among the competition and consumers.

Custom business email

Forget Gmail or Hotmail. When you have a custom domain, you show that you are a professional. Once you create your own business, you must separate personal emails from your online business. In this way, you have more outstanding tracking of all your company's activities in addition to contacting your customers in this way.

Things to know before you start

Marketing is key!

Marketing is the genesis of sales; believe it or not, it is in all aspects of life, from how a politician "sells" his campaign to voters to how you present "your product" - AKA your persona - in an interview with the job. Read this guide on PPC campaign strategy.

Therefore, once you have your products, you must find out who can work for them or what problem your service can solve. When you have gotten the answer, you already have your target audience, and you can start creating strategies for your entire audience.

Identify if your audience is young or older, a product of mere entertainment or a basic need, and then begin to highlight its attributes and what makes it unique over the competition. Here is a complete guide on B2B lead generation.

Choose the right eCommerce platform.

Choosing the ideal platform is essential to contact your potential customers. For this, it is good to do a market study and see which channels your consumers are most, be it social networks such as Facebook or Instagram or eCommerce platforms such as Amazon or eBay.

Written and Visual Content is Hugely Important!

Sight, all consumers are primarily visual, so from the looks and our messages, we must touch those fibres that will make our consumers buy our products without thinking twice.

For the visual part, focus on making videos that highlight the benefits of your service, be it its functions, its visual appeal or perhaps a review of one of them. These are great to immerse consumers in the experience of trying your product.

On the other hand, the written aspect must cover two key objectives: inform and transmit.

On the one hand, you must make clear all the features of your product, so people will know what they will get. On the other hand, you must transmit that feeling, that needs that will make them connect with your product and decide that it is the right one to buy, so remember: Appeal to emotions!

Learn SEO

According to a Search Engine Watch article, a few years ago, data suggested that the top result on Google gained 33% for any search. 

Recent studies have shown that we should not go out of our way to always be in the first place, since today more and more users visit different links to get the information they want. Business 2 community highlights that 22% of searches lead to other websites below the first result.

SEO is the art of getting the keywords or the topics that are most talked about, but beyond that work, the main thing is to give a complete answer to the needs of our readers, so getting the keywords is only half the job.
For your SEO to be effective, focus enough on the keywords that identify your product and us
e them to answer critical questions in your written content.

How to start with your new eCommerce?

Now that you have your Starter pack and know what is coming for you let's see how you can start with this eCommerce project.

Choosing a Product

Choosing a product needs a lot of research since you will be set up for failure if you get it wrong.

Consider this for product research:

  • Get to know your target audience in detail, from what they need to what problem your product could solve for them.
  • Choose a niche that is unique, specific and competitive, but make sure it is not oversaturated.
  • You have to source your product by making it, manufacturing it, buying it or reselling it. If you can, a good option is Dropshipping, where you can sell products without stocking them yourself.

Start your e-commerce Marketing.

Once you have used all the tools we told you before, it will be time for sales, and we are just one step away from seeing our bank accounts grow.
But first, as a farmer with his cattle, you must move the entire public to your store. You ask us, how do I do that CodeDesign? Well!

Your strategy should aim at three classes of people:

  • Those already looking for what you have to offer
  • Those who would want what you are offering if they knew of its existence.
  • Those who are aware of your business existence and have already made a transaction with you.

Once you have identified these people, it is time to convince them that you are the best option because you know you are the best!

For this, please use all those mentioned above: written and visual content, an excellent website and other marketing tools that we treat on our blog, such as ads.

Once you have those customers insured, take care of them since they are the fans of your brand, and to keep them happy, you should worry that they have enjoyed your product. What helps us on these occasions: Email Marketing. 

Through a list of leads, you can send welcome emails or update your offers to your loyal customers, this will keep them aware of your brand, and they will know that you are a person who believes in relationship marketing.

Remember to study your competition. If they are offering the same solution as you, look for a way to stand out because you are the best option over them.


Is this for my company?

Probably yes! We have companies following this plan from tax advisor services, lawyers, hotels, hostels, e-commerce, retail, employment, B2B, industry and so many others.
