Think about your last online shopping experience, where you made a purchase.
How did it make you feel?
If you didn't, why did you exit the browser without making the purchase?
The first rule of thumb when making an online purchase is buying from a place you trust. As a boutique owner, I know firsthand how often things change and I understand the responsibility I have to create a level of trust with my customers. The way I achieve this is by setting realistic expectations whether it be shipping or size.
How to get it right the first time:
- If the store offers reviews, read them.
- Like them on Social Media i.e. Instagram, Twitter, Facebook so you can follow their success. The purchase you are making is just as important to you as it is to them.
- If you have a question about an item, ask it! It is your right and if the communication is non-existent do not buy from them.
- Join their mailing list so that you stay in the know of the specials they are running and can possibly get your item at a discount.
I like to share with individuals that when buying online the cheapest item is not always the best choice. There are many online boutiques that claim to sell the most authentic pieces but many fail to do quality assurance prior to sending items to clients. This gives the brands that practice what they preach or should I say wear what they sell a disadvantage in the online boutique fashion industry. E-commerce is a billion dollar industry and has already become the entrepreneur’s haven. I started my brand because I saw a need to offer the best to the best. In the next few months, I will be rolling out items with customizations as requested by the customer. Click here to get 25% off a single item, as a thank you for reading/sharing my blog post.
