The growth of eCommerce in the last decade has changed the face of how businesses operate. Now we’re able to shop for goods as far away as China, all with the click of a button. Never has opportunity to grow an eCommerce business been more readily available.
eCommerce sites differ greatly from traditional websites in that they allow a company’s services or products to be bought immediately. They still come with the classic markers of a traditional website (about, team, products, etc), but by offering the additional step of making a purchase, the eComm site removes the necessity of going to the store to make the purchase. Many companies are taking full advantage of the growth potential of online shopping. And you can too- with the right EeCommerce site.
What is needed to develop a great eComm site?
First is knowing what product or service you’re offering. Then there’s knowing what market you’re targeting. And lastly there’s knowing how to capture the essence of your company to compel customers to purchase.
The eComm industry has a healthy number of platforms available for website creation and customization. No two are the same, and depending on the amount of shop space you need, a fully customized site may be necessary.
At JaySocial we specialize in creating eCommerce sites that suit each client’s needs.
In eCommerce platforms, there are a few big ones: WooCommerce, BigCommerce, and Shopify, for example. Each of these have their strengths, but one that is common to them all is ease of use. Many first time eComm store owners are looking for UI (user interface) and a back end that is simple to navigate and easy to maintain.
What we do is help the client decide which platform allows her to sell products in the best way possible for the business and the customer. We assess the client’s tech capabilities (or willingness to learn), the needs of their shop, and in what direction they want their brand to go.
For business owners that have a larger number of products, a greater amount of international customers, or a large number of employees that requires multiple managers at once, then Magento is a great route to a fantastic online store.
