Having an ecommerce website opens doors for traditional brick and mortar stores in so many ways. According to Big Commerce, "Ecommerce is growing 23% year-over-year, yet 46% of American small businesses do not have a website". With 80% of Americans shopping online monthly, if you're not online, you could be missing out on a large opportunity.
Expand Your Online Reach
A traditional brick and mortar store has a limited reach, even with advertising, customers are only able or willing to travel so far to visit your store. Having an ecommerce website brings convenience to your customers and allows more people to find you online to make a direct purchase.
Getting Started On Your Ecommerce Website
Choosing to start up an ecommerce website is no easy task, many things need to be considered in the platform you choose and how your internal processes are going to tie into the website. Consider these questions for your new ecommerce website:
- What need am I filling for my customers?
- What are my wants vs my needs for the website?
- Can my website sync with my accounting system?
- How do I want to fulfill orders?
- Will pricing change depending on the user's location?
- Will shipping change depending on the amount spent?
