Here at Open An Online Boutique, the focus is on creating online boutique businesses and leverage systems of automation that will allow transactions to take place, cash flow to generate, and growth of your boutique business to happen without requiring too much real time presence. 

I believe in being honest, having integrity, working right, and leading by example. That is my personal standard and the standard of Open An Online Boutique. 

The definition of “boutique” according to Merriam-Webster is a small company that offers highly specialized services or products.  Whether you are offering a product or a service you can still consider your online business a boutique!  You can offer products such as:

  • Clothing
  • Shoes
  • Jewelry and accessories
  • Hair Care Products
  • Health and Wellness products
  • Cosmetics and more!

Or you can offer services such as:

  • Web design
  • Photography
  • Financial services
  • Law services
  • Marketing
  • Branding and the list goes on!  Whatever your specialty is, Open An Online Boutique is here to help you bring it to life! 

I know there is tons of information out there to help you start your online boutique business. You can spend countless hours on the internet if you are not careful. To prevent you from doing that I have put together this quick checklist containing some essential information you need to start your online boutique business.  This checklist will set the foundation for you to start your online boutique business.

  • What do you want your boutique to be known for? Establishing a brand that people can relate to is important. When people mention your boutique you want it to be known for the product or service and how great it is.  Write down the vision that you have in mind for your boutique and create ways that will get that message out there to your audience.
  • Who will your product or service help the most? You are in business to provide a product or a service to an underserved market.  Find out who that group of people are. Where do they hang out at? Why do they need your product or service?  Knowing this information will allow you to speak directly to them when you launch your product or service.  
  • Do you offer a unique product or service? The marketplace is filled with people selling the same items. Think about it, whether it’s hair, makeup, clothes, shoes, or accessories, you are not the only one offering these products. Don’t get nervous. It’s ok to offer the same product or service as other companies, but how are you going to separate yourself from the others? A great way to go about doing this is by putting yourself out there. Let people know who you are.  You are what is going to make your company unique. There is no one else that is like you. People want to know who they are doing business with. Doing this will allow you to separate your business from the rest and will allow your brand to resonate with customers.  
  • Great customer service is essential. Would you continue to spend your money with a company with poor customer service? I didn’t think you would.  They exceptional service that you want when you shop at different places is what you need to give your customers when they shop with you. 

So are you seriously ready to start your online boutique business?
