Over the years we have produced numerous websites which allow clients to sell their products online. Historically this has been a difficult process, requiring large financial commitment. However, more recently different content management systems have developed their own or 3rd party extensions which allow people to sell their products safely and securely. Although this has made the process far simpler and more accessible to smaller businesses it is difficult to categorise these sites as true ecommerce.
The team at Acceler8 tend to classify smaller projects such as Woocomerce and other similar systems as ‘online shops’. To reach the higher echelons of ecommerce we are really looking to implement a fully customisable system such as Magento, which offers a truly flexible platform with unlimited options. When Magento is implemented correctly it isn’t merely a list which allows people to choose an item, it guides customers intuitively to the point of sale. So, although a shopper in Lancashire may have a very definite idea as to what they are looking to purchase, a properly designed ecommerce site offers them relevant, alternative products, thus increasing the chances of making a sale.
The beauty of a fully functional ecommerce site is that although you may be based in a small town such as Darwen or Chorley, you can reach and sell to a national or even international audience. With the power of the internet and a well though out strategy, the World is literally your oyster!
At Acceler8 Media we believe that the World is over flowing with unfulfilled ideas and we make it our job to realise them. Give us a call and lets see if one of our team can help make your dreams a reality!
