Some companies never actually have a physical location. They rely entirely on online sales. Other small businesses start out with a storefront. They prosper as familiar fixtures in their communities.
But one day, their owners decide to tap into the potential of the Internet. They decide to share their products not only with local customers, but with every customer in the world.
No matter why you’ve chosen to move your business online, Web.com’s ecommerce website builder will help you make it happen. Start with a template, upload your products, and choose your hosting plan. You’ll be selling online within a matter of hours.
Many small businesses sell products on third-party ecommerce sites like Amazon, eBay, or Etsy. These online stores provide tremendous opportunities to connect with new customers.
Not every product fits in one of these stores, however, particularly if your company sells digital products. Also, what you gain in exposure, you give up in flexibility and control over your branding.
Our ecommerce website builder gives you a great way to build greater awareness of your brand online. It also provides reporting tools for insights into your sales and email marketing options to connect with more customers. Keep any third-party affiliations you have if they’re an important part of your sales strategy. However, you can give your sales a boost — and reclaim some independence — by building your own online store.
Choose an irresistible domain name to build recognition around your brand. Customize your new site with your logo and the colors that reflect your business. If you have a storefront, promote your website in-store by offering promotions and discounts for online shoppers. If you don’t have a brick-and-mortar location, promote your ecommerce site at trade shows, festivals, or community activities to keep sales going long after your event has ended.
See up-to-the-minute sales and stock information so you can move as much inventory as possible. Never miss out on sales because you ran out of inventory or didn’t know what your customers wanted.
Make customers confident about shopping with you by offering secure, PCI-compliant payment processing. Store their payment information for future use so shopping is always easy and convenient.
Gain deeper insights into your customers’ shopping patterns and the products they like best. Learn who your best customers are so you can reward them with special discounts, promotions, and exclusive online sales events. Additionally, integrate your ecommerce site with Google Analytics to learn more about how customers find you. Discover which pages they visit, which social networks provide the best referrals, and how you’re doing with organic search and advertising.
Entice customers to visit your online store with exclusive upsells and offers sent via email marketing. Grow your email list and maintain connections so that new customers keep coming back.
