Ecommerce Websites that Sell Products!
Want to take advantage of selling your products and services online? We design and build ecommerce stores that sell and upsell your products and services.
Make Money With Your Website
Since your website should be acting just like a full-time salesperson who never sleeps, it should also be able to close the sale and collect the payments at all times of the day and night. We design and engineer ecommerce websites to guide your customers through the process and close the sale at the end.
Your online store should be just as engaging, if not more so than a brick and mortar store. Your customer needs to be easily drawn into the excitement of shopping, eagerly anticipating reveling the next item or treasure. This can be accomplished with a carefully designed customer experience that anticipates each step of the process.
Most items are purchased on impulse, so your online store needs to make it logical and easy for the customer to finalize the purchase and check out as hassle free as possible. Nothing results in more abandoned carts than a complex account creation and checkout process.
The presentation of your products are another critical feature of a top ranked ecommerce store. Are the product particulars easily found and viewable? Videos can go a long way towards putting the shopper at ease. View Sample Cart
Elements of an Online Store
For a business to be successful online, its needs more than just placing items for sale on its website. For an ecommerce website to be successful, it needs to appeal, captivate, and guide its customers through the ordering process.
- Design and Layout: the design of the website should be engaging and easy to navigate. The desired shopping experience needs to be included during the design process along with a layout that takes into account the opportunity to include add-ons and upsell during the checkout process.
- Product Database: while this is probably the least glamourous part of a website, the performance of the databases that contain your products is a critical component of your online store. This will determine how fast your product load, how easy it is to update your products, and how easy it is to maintain inventory levels.
- Payment Processing: accepting and processing payments online is critical for 99% of businesses. Selecting the right processor will determine everything from which cards are accepted and the amount of the fees.
- Secure Communications: ensuring that sensitive personal data and payment information is only sent via secure and encrypted methods is critical. Including the latest SSL technology is part of every ecommerce website,
- Order Management: a shopping cart should do more than just list and sell products, it should also be a place that customers can come back to check on the status of the order, obtain tracking information from, and easily place reorders.
- Reviews: including customer reviews alongside your products goes a long way towards helping new customers decide if this product is for them. Solicitating and posting customer reviews should be part of any ecommerce store.
