What is a successful E-commerce website?
One that sells lots of products, right? Absolutely, but it goes deeper than simply shifting units. You have to approach the project with a focus on end to end customer experience and deliver excellence throughout their journey. It’s about brand building as well as selling products and identifying what your unique proposition is to avoid an online price war.
A successful E-commerce website provides clarity to the user. It helps them easily find products and refine their search. Product data is presented in a fashion that users are stimulated by good imagery and video content along with well written content presenting product data in a manageable way for the customer to consume.
E-commerce websites should help the customer to buy and deliver an effortless checkout process.
How long do E-commerce projects take to deliver?
A smaller E-commerce website can be delivered in 6 weeks whereas larger E-commerce websites will be delivered within a timeframe of 3-6 months depending on the complexity and functionality involved.
Quality product data/content is imperative to E-commerce success. In our experience it’s also the primary reason for project delays. We will help you structure your product data correctly from the start of the project to avoid delays further along the project timeline.
