When you sell products in a local store or at a craft fair, you get access to local buyers. With a free ecommerce site from Web.com, you get everything you need to share your products with the world.
Selling products in other online stores, such as Amazon Marketplace, eBay, or Etsy, offers a lot of advantages for small businesses. But nothing compares to the convenience and marketing power of having your own ecommerce site:
Higher profit margins. Pay less in commissions to a third-party site and keep more money in your pocket.
Personal, distinctive branding. In a third-party online store, you’re just a name and a series of products. On your own free ecommerce site, you have an instantly recognizable brand presence; complete with your logo and other design elements that make your brand unique.
Complete flexibility and autonomy. Offer promotions and discounts to all customers or to a select group of your best customers. Adjust your product pages and content with the touch of a button, and visually promote new and bestselling products.
Valuable customer insights. Discover how customers find you online, and use that information to adjust your marketing messages and ad campaigns. Identify and reward your best customers to keep them coming back.
New opportunities for marketing. Use your free ecommerce site to build a customer relationship database, which you can use for email and direct mail marketing.
Direct customer communication. Instead of routing questions or interactions through a third-party store, customers can contact you directly for questions, requests, and support.
Complete order management. Keep customers informed throughout the order fulfillment process. Provide order tracking and thank them for their purchases.
