There is more to it than just taking credit cards online
Many companies underestimate the amount thought that has to go into developing a successful e-commerce web site. It is literally like building a (brick and mortar) store to sell your products or services. You just don’t do that in an afternoon.
- You have to chart out the process the viewer goes through to purchase the product, from searching for it, to inputting data, to getting follow-up customer service.
- You have to think about the process your company has to go through to provide that product:
- packing & shipping
- email confirmation
- customer service
- You have to evaluate yourself and your competition in:
- You need a full business plan and process management.
There’s a lot that goes into building a virtual store, just as there is a lot that goes into building a brick and mortar store.
