Create an Online Store in Just Few Easy Steps with Soho Storefront

July 10, 2013

PlanetSoho recently introduced an integrated online storefront that allows anyone to create a beautifully and professionally designed online business to start selling goods and services immediately.

Soho Storefront, designed specifically for the large-but-often-overlooked SOHO market, rounds out the suite of cloud-based tools PlanetSoho already offers for SOHO business and helps set up an online store in an easy and hassle-free manner.

“Since joining PlanetSoho, my business has grown 25 percent. I don’t just bake cookies now; I create goods from coffee and burlap bags. I live on a farm that’s 40 miles away from the closest city, so an online shop is exactly what I need in order to take my little operation to the next level. I was able to set up and link to my storefront in mere minutes,” said Katy Kassian, an owner of Buffalo Gals Bakery & Country Store in Regan, North Dakota. “I can’t think of a better way to get the word out!”

Soho Storefont works with other PlanetSoho tools such as marketing and invoicing. It is also already set up with the items in users’ PlanetSoho account pre-populated.

The solution is easy to share through Facebook and other social-media platforms like e-mail and websites. Storefront also boasts of a clean, intuitive interface and is affordable on a Soho budget.

“It’s the whole ‘just add water’ concept,” said Ron Daniel, founder and CEO of PlanetSoho. “We've already built and set up your online store for you - all you have to do is claim it and share the link with your contacts. Even if you've never sold online before, you can easily start selling through Soho Storefront.”

Members can get started for free, and they can upgrade to Soho VIP for as low as $4.95 a month for full access to Soho Storefront. Other Soho VIP features include easy group e-mail marketing, up to 10GB of cloud-storage space and 24/7 phone support. Soho VIP member benefits also include discounts from TurboTax, FedEx Office and Office Depot, as well as $100 worth of Google AdWords.
