The Basics of E-Commerce
If you’re looking to sell a product online, an e-commerce website is the way to go. There are several popular platforms, however, we have found that Shopify has the best features and support. These types of sites are specifically designed to help you market and sell a product, whether it’s physical or digital. These products generally have tiered hosting plans depending on what features your business requires.
Starting an e-commerce website can be daunting, but that’s why we’re here. While you develop your products and manufacturing, we’ll be working tirelessly to build you an exceptional online store. These kinds of stores are successful when they are easy to navigate, with categorized products, beautiful photography, and an excellent search function. We’ll help you out as much or as little as you need. If you just need someone to maintain your site while you manage products directly, we can make that work. Conversely, if you want us to handle the running of the website entirely, we can do that too!
With a platform like Shopify, you can upload your own products and access a 24-hour help line if you run into problems. It’s easy to add pages, categorize your products, and keep your customers up-to-date on all the latest news. If you only want to sell a few things, there are WordPress plugins available for the site you already have. You can also integrate PayPal payments into your website for convenience, which works well for memberships, or donations.
Connecting with Google
The best online store won’t be successful if customers can’t find it. That’s where Google comes in. One of our specialties at Creative Pro Marketing is Search Engine Optimization, which is key to your website appearing high up in Google search results. Whether your business is completely online or brick-and-mortar, we’ll set up a Google My Business page for you to add information about your company and communicate with customers. Google My Business works with other Google services like Ads and Analytics, all of which come together to give you the best chance of success. Finally, we’ll use Google Shopping to put together an exceptional online campaign to increase sales on your website.
If you’re ready to get started with an e-commerce website, or just have questions, give us a call today!
We’re firm believers in Shopify. They’re the gold standard for service and features when it comes to online stores. Shopify probably gives you the most bang for your buck in terms of capability, and they have 24-7 help lines available if you have any questions or concerns.
If you only have a few products in your library and you don’t want an entirely separate online store, consider using a WordPress plugin. If you’re a nonprofit or a membership-based organization, a PayPal integration is the way to go.
