Whether you're brand new or a been crushing it for some time, finding great eCommerce blogs can be tough.
I have scoured the interwebs and discovered some hidden gems, some weren't easy to find but their content was gold. Others are well established and have been providing quality content for years!
But why would should I share these blogs when we are one ourselves? Well, for starters it'd be impossible for us to cover off on absolutely everything (although we will try). For me to be able to achieve $535,294 in 6 Months meant I had to learn. Some of these blogs helped with me achieving that.
The reason, is with a common interest of ethical ecommerce the industry will be far better off, and as Elon Musk suggested when asked about patents…
“If we’re all in a ship together,” Musk said, “and the ship has some holes in it, and we’re sort of bailing water out of it, and we have a great design for a bucket, then even if we’re bailing out way better than everyone else, we should probably still share the bucket design.”
The Top 10 Ecommerce Blogs
These aren't written in any particular order as they each provide exceptional content. And as we each have a different style you will like some over others. So without further adieu I bring to you…
Straight Up Blogs
Richard Lazazzera has created an exceptional blog to help entrepreneurs get their heads around getting started online. I have been following him on twitter for a while now so have learnt a little about him.
He started out with Shopify sometime ago before quitting to take a more active role in helping people get started in the world of ecommerce.
The focus of ABLS is to help inspire, educate and support entrepreneurs in the early stages of their businesses.
They provide advice, tools, a supportive community and will help you grow your ecommerce business.
This one was taken over by Richard from ABLS and provides more insight into starting out with little to no money. With a focus on more strategic thinking and making your lack of finances work harder for you.
To me Practical Ecommerce comes across as a more corporate styled blog. It's not necessarily to my taste but it is still full of quality content. Started by Kerry and Joy Murdock in 2005 to provide down-to-earth articles and commentary about ecommerce.
If you're looking to join an exclusive club of 6 & 7 figure store owners than this is the blog for you. By being open to only those that have achieved success, Ecommerce Fuel ensures the information is backed by action.
Get Elastic is an Ad Age Power 150 ranked blog and has a whole host of other titles to ad to their name. But let's face it, it's about the content and how engaging they can be that makes a website successful.
These guys are another corporatey styled blog however this one claims to be one of the largest ecom and tech news pulications in the USA.
These guys really know how to put something together. From their CRM to the Blog they have quality content throughout. I find myself going back here continually to see what's up.
I have a softspot for Bigcommerce as they are Australian. Their blog however is full of quality, in-depth, actionable content. If it wasn't for Shopify I would probably bleed blue. They are a constant source of information for me and never disappoint.
Being the platform that most of us have gravitated towards you'd expect that their blog was top quality. That's exactly what it is. There is ton's and ton's of information available here that you could get sucked in and never return to actually start a store.
These guys are another platform we could use to sell stuff. They also have a blog that is full of quality content. You decide. 😀
Theres a few in this list that tout themselves as the #1 Ecommerce Blog. Let's be honest though, Numero uno status must go to Storehacks.com. The thing that sets Storehacks apart from the competition is the experience of having been in ecommerce businesses for the past 7 years.
This experience has been from the ground up. I've done the hard yards, I've not made money for months at a time trying to find out what works, consuming all the information available to me, finding mentors etc etc. In short, I started at the bottom like a lot of you.
With that experience comes lessons. Important findings and learnings that only having run stores and gone through that process can provide. Storehacks is my way of sharing those lessons with you.
As I find other quality blogs I will certainly add them to the list.
