Recently I was working on some side project, something that is quite interesting. And I am excited to share the final product/solution with you soon.
But before that day comes, let me share with you what problem I am working on and the progress. I hope you will enjoy reading the behind the scene of it. This article will be part 1 of the full article.
✅ E-commerce & Website Owner Checklist
Summary: Creating documentation and checklist for solopreneurs and websites owner to identify potential pitfalls on their website in different aspects (Analytic, Email, UX, digital marketing etc..) to facilitate long-term planning.
When my friend knows I am working in e-commerce and having a personal website. They always ask me how to grow and scale their e-commerce business as a solopreneur, how to set up proper website tracking on the website & what type of ad product on Facebook I should first experiment with.
These are all tactics for running a website & business. On the other hand, I believe every successful business and website requires long-term planning and a solid foundation to sustain its growth.
Having the knowledge of e-commerce and digital marketing campaigns from my work experience, what is missing is a comprehensive checklist and documents to reference. Therefore I decided to create one and see if there is any market for it.
What problem I am trying to solve
After doing some research online, a similar checklist does exist and is created by Jaka Smid. However, the checklist he made is mainly focused on tactics such as.
- Promote site-wide offers on top of the pages(e.g Free Shipping ) with urgency and scarcity
- Category labels accurately describe the information in the category
Time Frame: 2 Weeks (Now is already halfway).Aim to make this side project as lean and as tiny as possible. I prefer to launch it first and improve it based on the feedback.

✍️ Quote of the week
Growth is achieved by learning and unlearning at the same time. Reading books like this is a great way to learn. Reading yourself is a great way to unlearn. If you can do both, you can make progress. If you just do one, you’ll fail.
