Project 3 - Product Development
E-commerce is a way for businesses to sell things online, reaching people all around the world without needing a physical store. Because of this, it’s important for students to learn how to create and manage an online store. In this project, students will get real experience making an e-commerce store using tools like WordPress and WooCommerce. They’ll learn how to make product categories, add products, make their store look good, and follow the best ways to set up their product pages.
This project also lets students be creative with their online store. They’ll learn the technical skills needed to make a store, but they’ll also have the chance to write interesting product descriptions, pick great product pictures, and come up with a special identity for their store. By focusing on what customers want, students will learn how to show the value of their products and stand out from other stores. Overall, this project will help students improve their marketing, design, and communication skills, which are all important for being successful in today’s online world.
In this assignment, you’ll be adding a bunch of products to your online store. You’ll need to find awesome pictures and descriptions to make your e-commerce shop stand out. Your store should have 4 product categories, and each category should have 4 products, making a total of 16 products. You’ve already set up “woocommerce.” Now, it’s time to make sure it works well and fill it with great products. Add four (4) categories and put four (4) products in each one.
Give some information about each category to help your customers understand what it’s about. For every product, include a well-written description and nice pictures that go well with the rest of the items in your store. Be creative with your descriptions and focus on the feelings or reasons why someone should buy the product, not just what it is. Southern Fabric, for example, could improve their descriptions, as they mostly just describe the product. Do some basic searches to see how other companies are developing their product descriptions. Notice how the pictures on Southern Fabric and Red Dress look similar to each other in their style.
You will need to:
- Create at least four product categories
- Add four products to each category
- Add picture(s) to each product.
- Add a product description to each product.
- Add a price point to each product.
