Know your customer

Before you move further, you first need to know your customer. You need to know what your target audience is and what they might look for. You need to know how to cater to their every need for example what kind of products they would want? What payment method would suit them? Who will be interested in what I have to sell? All these questions are necessary to develop a clear idea of how you are going to go forward with your site.

 

Choose the best platform to integrate with

You should have a detailed background knowledge about which platform is better suited to your specific needs. There are many platforms out there which are made for different kind of business depending on the product and business scale. Even for the same business, there is a variety of platforms that you can choose from. Every platform has its unique feature that you can use. Make a smart decision.

 

Customer service

Customer service is the most important aspect of e-commerce websites. Just because the traditional shopping methods are changing that does not mean that people don’t need human contact. Every now a then when a problem may arise you customers would want to contact you. You should be sure to add two to three different contact options such as a phone line, an email, and a live video chat option.

 

Website layout

Remember how people used to give out business cards and you used to judge them as a business? (It seems like a lifetime ago) Well, that the case with whom your website will look. The way your site looks will be your impression on the customer and if you need your business to succeed you need a good layout. Make sure the layout is esthetic and easy to use as usability should never be compromised.
