Categorization of Products

When I first setup my store, I basically went shopping for inventory like I was on a mad shopping spree, piling things into the basket (virtual shelves) and running around like nuts.

That's probably not the best way to do things as I've learned the hard way.  When you set up your store take a methodical approach and focus on the best things and deals you see.  I have just wrapped up a session where I re-organized and categorized my store so that it makes more sense.  I started with cameras at  my store.

These were some of the first products that went into the store.

I reorganized the Camera section to categorize things by brand and by Mega pixels.  You have the option to assign a single product three categories, so if someone happens to browse into brands they will find cameras by brand and they will possibly find the same camera in the 8.0 megapixel section and in the generic Camera section. 

Next up I need to organize my DVD's better!

If you are interested, I would be glad to help you with your own online store.  You can set one up quickly and the rates start at $29.99 per month giving you full ecommerce capability.  You can take your first order in 30 minutes after setting things up, and choose from 700,000 products to stock your store.  I've set up this page to help anyone interested in the concept.  I'm working on featuring the people that set up a store on several of my blogs.  So make sure you let me know if you start your own store today!
