If you sell products, no matter what, you need an ecommerce website. Not only does an ecommerce website expand your market from your local vicinity to a global market place, it allows you to reduce and even eliminate the costs of a traditional brick and mortar store. Worldwide, B2C ecommerce sales amounted to more than 1.2 trillion US dollars, and that was in 2013! (stats courtesy of statista.com). With more than 3 billion people using the internet now, the possibilities to expand your market share are endless, in countries and market places you may have never considered.
Choosing an ecommerce platform is the most important step to starting your online business. With so many platforms available, which one is right for you? Especially when so many of them seem to offer the same functionality, choosing an ecommerce platform to run your business can be extremely difficult. This is where we come in.
Our experience designing and developing ecommerce website since 2005 has given us the experience needed to help you select the right ecommerce website platform to build on, considering your unique requirements.
Instead of simply installing an out of the box ecommerce system, we work with you to determine which platform is best suited to your needs. How many products do you anticipate starting with? How many categories? How is inventory managed? Do you offer discount coupons, bulk pricing or perhaps special pricing for different customer groups? How about shipping? Flat rate, per weight, courier or regular mail? How will you accept payments? Online credit card processing, PayPal, cash on delivery or perhaps all options? These are just some of the functionality we consider when helping you plan your ecommerce website.
Making sure your website is found is what we specialize in. All your competitors are online and pumping serious money into their online marketing efforts, simply having an editable website simply isn’t enough; especially if no one finds you.
Our Search Engine Optimization program will ensure your products are found on Google. Every page and all your media is optimized for your specific industry, resulting in increased sales and higher revenue.
