As owner of studioalt.co my top-tip for growing your e-commerce business is to automate your operational tasks and for those that can’t be automated then outsource. You are your company’s biggest asset and you need to free up your time to focus on business development activities rather than transactional tasks, such fulfilment, inventory management and bookkeeping. Automation can be achieved through competitive cloud technology, fulfilment by partnering with Amazon Fulfilment, whilst platforms like peopleperhour.com will allow you to hire resource that can develop sustainable and financially viable solutions.
