The benchmark in e-commerce success is choosing the administration platform

One of the principal questions in e-commerce website development is what type of platform would be recommended for an online store creation project. We develop online stores for small, medium and large businesses. The choice of platform depends on the number of products and functionalities needed to be integrated into the new site.

A matter of documented choice

We have prepared a series of informative articles about the four main platforms that we would recommend for agency clients, according to the online shop development project. Dedicated articles about each platform can be read on the agency’s blog.

One aspect clients need to consider is operating a user-friendly Dashboard for managing products and pages in the website. Some online store platforms are simple to use but problematic in terms of scalability (thousands, hundreds of thousands of products). Other platforms may be too complex for inexperienced users and require specialized maintenance, but support thousands of products and major traffic from visitors.

Briefingand setting up objectives

We consider it’s important to start online store website development with briefing interviews to get our facts straight. The objective of the meetings is to discover those advantages that are worth developing in regards to text, design and website functionality.

We are a team of full-service professionals, we allocate time and resources for research, communication concept, web design creation, code programming and testing.

Copywriting for e-commerce websites

The online store is a sales platform, we call it a Money Site. In order to write about a company, a copywriter needs to learn about the company itself, the ideas, concepts, vocabulary and style of expression employed in the company’s specialized field of commercial activity.

Copywriting and product description texts narrate a story by the letter. Information is structured to address the experience of a potential buyer with brand products and commercial offers.

For favorable Google indexing, we write content in volumes for product category pages, the descriptions inform about the aesthetic and functional qualities of brand products.

Web design for online stores

A web design project, followed by web development, starts with the Home Page design to structure a graphic style that delineates onto the secondary pages. We craft a custom design language to develop a digital brand from the ground up. We can also work on the basis of an existing brand design manual.

Graphic design is the visual part of brand identity and can be considered one of the first elements visitors interact with in regards to perception. It is the form that supports the textual and commercial content presented by the website. People look for the right content to suit their interest and curiosity.

When entering an online store, people take an interest in products and their descriptions. Products are displayed in a creative design environment, the information architecture is easy to navigate, with eye-catching points of interest. Good design would bring a visitor one call to action away from becoming a new client.

The procedure follows a series of recommended technical steps, and the length of these processes varies depending on the server location and the file sizes that make up the website.

We recommend choosing a dedicated IP for the website and installing an SSL security certificate to ensure secure login for visitors, vital for e-commerce stores as well as for less complex websites.

SSL Certificate installation

Installing an SSL certificate on the website will lead to automatically redirecting visitors to the HTTPS secure version of the website to ensure information protection.

Google considers HTTP redirection to HTTPS Secured Version a ranking signal for search engine results. There are two main reasons why you should consider securing the website with an SSL certificate:

Operating an online store is a big business commitment

Before starting an online commercial business, we recommend good market research and extensive documentation on how to manage the e-commerce platform. The investment in web technology will become profitable in medium term perspectives reaching a number of benchmarks in product sales.

Training is essential and it deserves a time investment to cover all the technical dimensions of such a business: inventory, warehouse, mail or courier (national and international), card payment, customer support, Google optimization, promotion, pricing policy and regional fees, product return policy, client profiles, including a number of variables that are not in the direct control of the administrator, for example – customer feedback.

To manage an online sales site may not be that simple

First of all, there is great competition and your competitors are one step forward in terms of marketing and market share. Good control over product demand and supply is essential. The product delivery protocol must be precisely calibrated – the delay of a product will lead to customer dissatisfaction. A customer care and support system is required. Be prepared for managing unhappy customers and for correcting your actions in accordance with a Terms of Service policy.

Education in new technologies and the online market dynamics is mandatory

You will activate in a highly competitive digital environment. Your competitors are well-prepared to manage the technical tricks of an e-commerce website. You have to be knowledgeable of concepts such as multi-tier price policies, regional taxes, timed limited offers, smartphone apps, loyalty points, bonus coupons, buy-in credit, etc. In addition, your clients do their research before buying, and websites that offer comparative pricing and product benefits dictate the choices.
