E-Commerce Website Design and Development

Why does my business need e-commerce?

Online shopping is increasingly becoming the way to do business. With many some companies now turning over millions each year, it’s clear why more traditional businesses are looking to get on the internet as quickly as possible. People are searching right now for your products and services, and spending their money with competitors who are already online.

Gone are the days where spending in shops stops when the doors close. Money gets spent more often these days without the need of sales staff or even a premises! Living int he 24/7 society of today with superfast internet connections it’s a real no-brainer that people would rather shop online from the comfort of their homes. No queues, no set opening hours and easy comparison of prices are just a few of the benefits to the consumer.

Benefits of an E-commerce website

Even if you already have a brick and mortar store, an e-commerce solution will enable you to sell to customers 24/7,all over the world, instantly increasing your sales potential.

You may be happy lucky enough to have a high footfall of customers to your brick and mortar store, but what happens when your regular customers want to order something out of hours, or they aren’t able to come to your store? Maybe they’ll go online and search for you. If you don’t have an e-commerce site, they won’t be able to place an order, even if they do find an ordinary brochure website for you.

Do I get a custom design?

Yes! Each e-commerce site comes with a custom design that will be integrated with the e-commerce system for you. Designs are created after discussing your key goals, ensuring that your design ties in with your existing branding and provides a clear and easy user experience for your customers.
