Amplify’d from

As we enter another exciting year, it’s a great time to plan for the year ahead. What should you be focusing on? What will be critical to your ecommerce success in 2011?

We contacted some of the expert speakers from PeSA Summit 2010 and asked them to share their Top 3 Tips for selling successfully online in 2011.

Jonathan Garriss –

1. Create a plan/strategy for 2011 before things get too crazy
2. Measure the profit/costs of the different parts of your business.  Then, pick the top 3 and work on those exclusively; put the less profitable tasks on hold or outsource them to someone that can do it better (or cheaper).

3. Survey your customers to learn what they think about you.  Don’t rely on the initiative of customers to go out of their way to tell you that you are doing something wrong.
