How to establish a good e-commerce website
Shopping was perceived as the woman’s thing. But this perception is not anymore. There are many online websites offering gadgets which are meant for men mostly. Not only for men, there are e-commerce stores which are meant for kids, teenagers as well. E-commerce stores are not catering people of every age group.
Perceiving online stores as a niche market that is targeted for a special group of people is wrong. They are here to cater people of every age. Now every business is moving towards establishing its e-commerce store.
In this article, I will not praise e-commerce system as everyone knows that this system works, I will be discussing some important issues in the e-commerce websites that needs to be addressed.
1: Your site is for selling your product:
The problem looks easy but it is not that. The e-commerce sites are made to sell products not for just showcasing your brand. Some websites are there which look cool but when seen through a prism of customer these sites are really bad. Some sites just put an “Add to cart” or “buy now” button on a simple page without any attractive details and features about the product. This is a huge problem which really affects your selling performance.
2: Displaying the whole range of products:
Some internet surfers are just there to surf your store freely and they don’t know what they want exactly. So your goal is to make their task easy for them. For solving this problem make a list of product categories or make grid which can show the range of products.
3: Design a beautiful logo:
Online shopping is based on a thin hair of trust. And your customer can’t meet you physically. Hence make your online store look trustable. You should have a beautiful logo for your online store. It will make your e-commerce store look trustable. The logo should reflect your store niche.
4: Deals and offers:
When a visitor visits your online store, there are just a few seconds to grab his attention in your store otherwise he would leave and visit a better store. So always display some deals and free offers for your customers.
E-commerce is not meant for just a single place. The e-commerce store is catering to the whole world. So always take shipping charges into the account. A free shipping offer can be a real big deal for people belonging to some far off place.
5: Deal or popular products news:
The customers should never feel any confusion or problem in finding the date of the starting of next deal or the release of the popular product.
The homepage of your website is the perfect place to display that news and it will attract your customer’s attention. He might bookmark your site to return on that date.
6: Payment options:
Payment option is an important issue. And a single customer has only limited payment options. So, always tell the customer the payment options in advance to avoid any confusions.
The solution for this problem is to display all the payment options on homepage footer.
