    Hi,
    if you want to start an e-commerce business, then the first thing you need to have is a solid business idea. You can choose to sell products (apparel, books, bags etc.), start a retail store or offer services (photography, mobile app, digital marketing, creative work etc.) through your website.
    Once you have zeroed down a business idea, consider building an attractive e-commerce website. Make it appealing and informative so that users come and buy your products. You will also need to do marketing for your website. This will help to tap prospective buyers and generate leads.
    You can also create Facebook business page, where you can post products’ pics, share information and videos to enhance engagement, generate inquiries and trigger sales. You may also have your products listed on other e-commerce sites to attract referral traffic and boost sales.

    Best of luck for your business!

    First off, all the best for starting your own ecommerce store.

    Now coming to your question, there are many ways to sell your product "school bags" online. If you want a complete control over your business, the profit margins and want to keep a tab on your customers and visitors, you should definitely get your own website. In case, you're looking for another platform to sell your product, you can try registering on Amazon or eBay. However, you'll have to pay a certain fee to them for selling your products there.

    Personally, I think you should just get a WooCommerce website which is cost effective and you will have the full control in your hands as well.

    For e commerce first you should have decide what you want to sell and what other selling relevant to your products. After doing this research then you need one platform from where you can call your customers and showed your products. According to me website is the best way to sell your product with targeted basis.

    To start a business you need to smartly plan the start-up process of the same.

    RESEARCH - know the different pros and cons of the business so that you can plan in advance to tackle the same.
    LOCATION - You can start the school bag making business at your home only if you have the required empty space.
    BRAND - Give an attractive brand name for your product and register your business online.
    PROMOTION - Marketing and promotion are the steps which will decide the quick success of your business

    The first thing that you need to determine for online business is where to get the traffic from. In a sense all online business is about traffic and conversion. If you ard just starting I suggest going "where the money is", i.e. starting in a niche which already has a lot of business, don't be afraid of competitors. It will allow you to get a sense of your market

    I think to start an ecommerce business selling school you need to get officially registered on the Web by getting a top level domain name for your business, employ some good marketing skill personnel to help promote your product also visit schools around your neighborhood and give out some free stuff with your name and Web address printed on them, you could also leverage email marketing platforms and student forum to create awareness with these I am sure your school bag idea will blossom In a matter of time.

    Well you are specialising your domain By selling just the schools bags and your target audience is also defined. so the best way to target them is by tying up with schools and colleges and provide the bags at concessional rates. you can market your brand on the social media and list your business on different websites. you can use Google adwords which seems a pretty strategy.

    I have an even better question. How is an online plumbing service going to help the OP sell school bags? Yes, if you actually read the thread, you would know that was the OP's original question. In the future please read the thread before replying, so you do not make useless posts that have nothing to do with the thread subject.
