Or lets say you run a big home furnishings retail outlet in the US and you want to build a home furnishings webstore to reach out to a wider market. The first step here would be to organise your inventory.

Our 'Documents' section helps you set up your terms and conditions and your returns policy. You should get professional help in setting these up for your particular business. These documents not only protect you and your customer but they also help to clarify how you ship your items, what kind of timelines you require for deliveries, how you handle returns and any other information about payments. Use clear and easy-to-understand language here. Your legal documents should seek to clarify, instead of intimidate, and they can inspire customer confidence in your online home decor business.

Besides product pages you can also set up a number of 'Info Pages' on Blipteam. You can use these informational pages to tell people more about yourself, your home furnishings company or your furniture design studio. You can include home decor tips and articles on furniture care. You could post some interesting information about the craftsmen and artisans who worked on all those handcrafted items from the far corners of the globe.

This kind of information helps you tell your story and helps you build your brand in the long run. This is the kind of information that helps your customers remember you and recommend your home decor and home furnishings to others. You can read more about content marketing here and search engine optimization and generally learn how to market your products online.
