When building an eCommerce business, there are a lot of things to consider to position yourself into a place that is going to bring you long term success. Overnight success is highly unlikely but with the right foundations, the world is your lobster!
Choosing the right eCommerce Platform
You can be up and running for cheaper using dedicated platforms like, Shopify. We believe that this is a short-term approach that will be of a long-term disadvantage. With monthly subscriptions (that increase with more sales) you will pay a lot more for your store if you plan on being around in a few years time. Another issue is that you are in the hands of a 3rd party platform: you not have full control of your online business. We use WordPress and WooCommerce to ensure that you have full control of your business that will be a lot cheaper in the long-term.
Online Shop Optimisation
An online shop must be fully optimised for both the user and search engines. It is essential that your products, categories, tags, filters and SEO are structured and populated efficiently to give yourself the best change for success. A poorly optimised shop will not convert viewers into buyers and worse still, none of your products will be found in searches online. As eCommerce specialists, we will provide you with a robust infrastructure and expertly engineered site so you can have a clear path to success.
