Ecommerce Web Design - Online Store
There are several ways to skin this cat. Sometimes we even recommend that the customer simply get an eBay account and sell their wares there. If the selection is small and inventory supply is questionable, it occasionally makes sense to go this route.
When you have a fair number of items, a brand and reliable supply it probably makes good sense to have an online ecommerce store. Determining the look and feel of the web site design can be crucial to its success. The website needs to be attractive, navigationally friendly and also search engine friendly. An ecommerce website that gets the customer lost or is hard to maintain will lose customers and be a headache.
We will need to determine who is going to maintain the website inventory, add and delete products and change pricing etc. If you, the customer, want to do this we have several solutions to choose from. If you want us to do the web site maintenance (our "soup-to-nuts" solution) then we would be happy to do that for you. We can accomplish changes in a number of ways; fax, email or telephone. Changes usually take less than 24-48 hours and can sometimes be handled immediately on the phone. We have an ecommerce small business web design solution for you.
