    If you choose to go with your own puppy website, do your research and make sure that whoever builds it understands e-commerce websites.

    Puppy Shopping

    Shop around with different Web Design Companies. Make sure that they are transparent in their pricing. A lot of companies will give you a great price, however "Wait there's more" the add on extra fees for doing different things. Hidden fees if you will. Sometimes they will charge extra money for crucial features. And you don't want to be blindsided, with extra fees.

    You want to make sure that your website is both aesthetically pleasing, and user-friendly. Who like to go to a website and it's very hard to navigate?

    When you have chosen someone to do your website, make sure that you have actual control over your own website. I have done some research, and some unethical companies will not allow you to own your own website. 

    Often they will not tell you this when you buy your website, unless you specifically ask. If you find out that you don't like who has done your website, and you feel that it is time to move on to another company,

    You may not be able to transfer their website to another provider because the website designer owns all the right to it. That can be a big problem for you. This is a question you need to ask when you choose your web designer.

    Using Your Website


    Now that you have decided on who is going to design your website, let's talk about how to use it to sell you puppies.

    One of the biggest problems that online businesses face, whether they are selling puppies or pogo sticks, is traffic. If people are not coming to your site, or can't find your site, they are not going to buy your puppies. There is several way to get traffic to your website.

    Running Ads


    Pay-per-click (PPC) ads:  There are two main types of PPC ads: Facebook ads, and Goofle ads.

    Facebook Ads are best for building your brand. Google Ads are best for attracting people who are already looking for your product.

    The nice thing about PPC ads is that they will help you get a lot of traffic quickly. The problem is that once you stop spending money on the ads, the traffic stops immedietely.

    Search Engine Optimization (SEO) PPC ads are a short -term strategy, while SEO is long-term.


    SEO focuses on helping your website show up first when someone searches for puppies.

    Both strategies are great, and they can work well together. It is a good idea to do both in the beginning, until you are getting enough organic traffic. Then you can stop PPC ads, and use them only when you need a traffic boost.

    Hopefully this help you understand how to sell your puppies online.
