  3. Then you could launch an e-shop as your business grows. Create a plan of your goods and services, decide on your range and then contact website developers who will create your e-shop design and web page with a database.
  4. Buy a website address and domain for your website.

Make sure that your website is suitable for mobile phones, as “Google” ranking system is more favourable for websites adapted for mobile use. This means, that websites suitable for mobile phones will appear higher in “Google” searches. This is especially important in Lithuania, as surveys suggest that customers usually search for goods online rather than in a specific shop.
