Top 3 action items any growth-focused e-commerce owner should be doing
...other than picking, packing, and shipping their products
When you own an e-commerce business, chances are you have a long list of things that need to be done and you can’t keep up with all of them. Maybe you don’t have a list… maybe you just have a cloud of intimidating tasks floating around in your head waiting for your next brainstorming meeting or even a free afternoon just to sort out your overwhelmingly tangled thoughts.
Some things are pretty obvious though; for example, when you’re dedicated to growing your business, naturally your first goal should be boosting your sales. When you want to double your sales immediately, you’ll automatically wonder which will come first: a doubling of your store's web traffic or a doubling your store’s profit margin (and accept that the fomer will probably come before the latter, no matter how much we might wish it was the other way round.)

3. Focus on internationalization
Internationalization is so easy for e-commerce businesses when you partner with a 3PL service provider like OGOship, but getting your store ready for international markets can seem like a huge hassle!
