eCommerce websites can be a great way to not only give you the financial freedom you are looking for but can also be a great way to have more time for your family. The first thing you need to do is brainstorm to determine what it is you will be selling. Then comes the part of getting your eCommerce website created. Many people look at this project and figure we will just hire a Phoenix web design company and let them deal with it but it is much more than that. There are some keys that cannot be overlooked if you want an eCommerce site that works to it’s maximum potential.
- Professional look and feel – A good eCommerce site will give people a feeling of trust and security. In a world full of identity theft people are hesitant to give their personal information to just anybody. A website with a professional look and feel will give people this impression. Besides trust we all know how important a first impression is. This can make or break you so this is why it is a must to have a professional look and feel for your website.
- User friendly – People want to be able to find what they are looking for with out much time and effort. A good eCommerce website will have well placed call to action links guiding them through the website. It will be easy to search for products and to purchase products.
- K.I.S.S. – You remember K.I.S.S from school if not it means keep it simple stupid. Many people try to get carried away with their shopping carts and create this huge process for somebody to be able to purchase an item. Nobody wants to struggle just to make a payment in order to pay for a product. Make it as simple as you can for a customer to checkout. Besides the main goal is to make money not to create an extensive checkout system.
- Use available space – So many people use their confirmation to just say thank you for your purchase. This is great but there is an entire page going to waste. A much smarter way to use this page is to keep the thank you for your purchase text but also have pictures of similar products or special deals. This may end up getting you a second sale from the customer.
