E-Commerce

Creating a successful E-Commerce store isn’t as simple as just having an inventory, making a catalog of products and connecting a payment method.

We’ve made quite a number of E-Commerce webstores, and although each has had its specific differences, they all contain some consistent and effective elements.

This means that you get the benefit of many years of experience working with us, resulting in a web store that performs tirelessly for you while you sleep.

The Elevator Sales Pitch:

  1. State the fact
  2. Convert the fact to a benefit
  3. Transform the benefit to customer appeal
  4. Ask for the order

It may seems like rather a brutal approach, but if you consider that customers always want the most relevant information in the shortest space of time, you’re actually doing them a favour by being direct.

For Business Owners

Whether your business sells products that can be packed in a box and freighted, or downloaded after purchase, or even virtual products like memberships, hire contracts, consulting time or events, many of the E-Commerce business principles remain the same.

As far as we’re concerned, there are a number of elements that constitute a successful sales platform, and although we don’t implement them on every E-Commerce store that we create, we feel that business owners should consider all the options available to them that will help them extract the best possible return on their investment.

This list is by no means exhaustive, but we hope that it can assist you with your E-Commerce store. In no particular order, they are:

  • Terms & Conditions
  • Return Policy
  • Privacy policy
  • Sales Funnels
  • Analytics
  • Up-sell on Checkout
  • Shopping cart abandonment emails
  • Customer mailing lists
  • Return customer rewards
  • Flexible Shopping Cart Options
  • Effective logistics management
  • Affordable payment gateways

Product types

Inventory

Just because your product won’t fit in a box to be freighted, it doesn’t mean you can’t use E-Commerce to sell it.

Downloadable Products

If your product or service for sale is a downloadable digital item like a song, a video, or a document, you can make the item available after you’ve confirmed the purchase, and even limit the number of downloads.

Virtual Products

If your product or service is more intangible like a membership or an event, you can make the transaction and then assign a membership status to the customer with all the benefits that entails, or send tickets and venue information to the buyer about the event after they’ve paid.

Appointments

If your product is fee-for-service, you can use a booking system to make appointments, block out times and dates, and take a fee to ensure that you avoid no-shows.

Obviously, these aren’t the only types of products that you can sell in an E-Commerce store, but whatever you have for sale, you can be sure that we’ll find a way to help you get it to market.
