SELLING PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ONLINE

People who sell products and services online fall into two basic categories; Products and Services. For example, products include everything from food to everyday products; clothing, shoes, household items, equipment, pet supplies, and the list goes on and on, whereas services include Online coaching, fitness training, telemedicine, consultation, technical support, and many other services.

Local Food Delivery and Fulfillment Services

You can connect with local delivery and fulfillment services. And collecting orders and track deliveries could be simplified using Excel, Google Sheets or Airtable to build a fast database.

Local delivery and fulfillment services include; DoordashGrub Hub, or Uber Eats. These services handle food orders and delivery. Alternatively, you could also look at integrated POS Point of Sales solutions like Chow NowToast, or Touch Bistro that connect with the delivery services.

Product Delivery and Shipping

The most popular choices for online shipping include;
UPS
USPS
Fed Ex

Word Press websites make it a snap to integrate these popular shipping services. On the other hand, if you do not have a Word Press website, a popular 3rd party shipping service is shipstation.com. Alternatively, there are 3rd third party online shopping website providers: Shopify, Wix, Square, and Big Commerce.

Alternatives for Service Providers

If you sell time instead of products, you need a way for customers to book appointments on your web site. Tools like Jobber cater to specific industries. Other tools, like vCita, are more general-purpose. If you use Office 365, they could use the built-in Microsoft Bookings app.

Other service providers such as HVAC technicians or landscapers need to be on-site to do their work. Because clients don’t need to be physically present can use virtual meetings instead. Therefore, use tools like Skype, Google Hangouts, or Microsoft Teams. Because they all have dial-in options, customers do not have to use a separate app.

Service Providers Offering Digital Products

Digital products are another option for service providers. In other words, these small businesses are content creators. For example, they are packaging information into on-demand videos, courses, podcasts, and eBooks.

You can do this on a WordPress site using a plugin like Easy Digital Downloads. Or you could use a standalone service like Gumroad to embed the digital product on your web site.

Virtual Classes & Online courses

Virtual classes & online courses are great for fitness studios and other training-based businesses. There are plenty of WordPress solutions for building membership sites like these.

Some popular course-based Word Press plugins include Learn DashLifter LMS, and Sensei for Woo Commerce. For more flexibility, check out Restrict Content ProMemberful, and WP Complete.
