So you’ve finally set up your online business. You’re passionate about this new direction, your mind is brimming with fresh ideas, and you’re excited to earn that extra money. Good for you!

But here’s the thing: Your drive and concept may not be enough to propel your new online enterprise to success.

To achieve top seller status, you’ve got to equip yourself with useful tools and resources to help keep your business going in the long run. Here are some of them:

Google Forms

Gathering orders through private messages and comment boxes can get out of hand, especially if you’re receiving an overwhelming amount of inquiries. Avoid this by using a tool that will compile all your customers’ orders in one place.

One such service that newbies and seasoned sellers alike swear by is Google Forms. It is free, uncomplicated, and widely-used. All you need is a Gmail address for you to start building your order form.

When it’s ready, you can send out the link to your potential customers, and once they complete a form, all the information you asked for will be automatically consolidated on Google Sheets, which will then serve as your main reference.

Photoshop Express

For simple photo editing functions such as cropping, color-correcting, and adding text, Photoshop Express is a mobile app that allows you to enhance the appearance of your product shots or promotional photos even when you’re on-the-go. The best part about it? Unlike the software, its features can be used for free!

Canva

You don’t need to have a background in graphic design to create attractive visual content for your shop. Canva is a trusted graphic design website and app that offers a wide array of eye-catching and functional design elements that you can use to make awesome graphics—from brochures and business cards to infographics and social media ads.

Hootsuite

Social media management can get tricky. That's why business owners turn to tools like Hootsuite, which allows them to handle multiple social media pages in a single platform.

With the free plan, you get a social media dashboard for a maximum of three social accounts, where you can schedule up to 30 posts. Hootsuite also regularly publishes reports about digital trends—something you might find useful in conceptualizing your social media content.

HelloSign

Struck a major business deal but could only seal it with eSignatures? HelloSign is arguably one of today’s best digital workflow platforms to close your agreements.

HelloSign's free plan includes three signature requests per month. It will also send you status notifications and keep an audit trail for you to track the progress of your document.

Beyond these virtual partners, you'll also need a reliable brick-and-mortar partner with extensive experience in nationwide logistics operations, helping you efficiently carry out the courier and shipping requirements of your online business.

Entrego is exactly that—a technology-driven, end-to-end fulfillment and logistics provider in the Philippines that enables online sellers like you to keep your promise to customers through effective business solutions.
