Merely developing an e-commerce site nowadays doesn't ensure its success. In fact, it could be a costly mistake for your company. when did it launch? How much compition existed at the time? How long did it take for others to notice and launch web stores.

Is an on-line store a real business?

On-line shops rarely get full, customers do not stand in lines and online stores never appear to run out of stock. The real life concept of lining up and being held up in the store doesn't really exist on-line. There's no lines at and, most likely, you'll remember their previously good service. So, naturally, you return to them. To understand how users will change where they purchase their goods, either permanently or temporarily, we need to see what causes the change.

Why would customers come to your store rather than a store like

There are a few reasons why someone would choose to purchase goods or services from another retailer on the Web:

  • They found the product they needed
  • The other store is inaccessible for a prolonged period of time
  • The store did not offer a feature or special offer that the customer needed or wanted
  • The other store raised prices

Amazon doesn't have any major problems in any of these areas, which is why they hold a large market share. Customers have the option of using a competitor, but they often choose not to since Amazon provides them with the service level, price level and feature level that they have come to expect. Now, before you rush to launch your e-commerce business, there are some obvious lessons to learn.

The Important Lessons

Don't just match. Beat! If you want to gain an advantage on your prime competitors with your prices, don't just match their prices. Beat them! If you don't offer a specific advantage, why should someone want to change to a new 'unknown' retailer? As taught in most business classes, the first sale is often the hardest. Perhaps it would be in your best interest to offer the first purchase for half price if your profit margin could take it. This goes for any offer or facet you want to push.

Expose yourself. Do you really think you're going to succeed by remaining hidden away in the depths of cyberspace? If you deal with a niche subject, you can afford to be more hidden away. If you sell general goods, you need to be exposed.

Exposure can be everything. The Best Online Advertising Method is Word of Mouth. Tell everyone - HERE WE ARE

Don't be too different, just different enough to stand out. It's no use going online to compete against, say, Amazon and then producing a site which is confusing and radically different to every other e-commerce site out there. This approach would only have a chance of succeeding if you already have a big brand name, and a reputation for being different. Remember to stay within the unofficial 'standards' of e-commerce sites, don't think up clever names to replace 'shopping cart' (or basket) and 'checkout.' Those sites who've done that have soon regretted it.

Customers are your biggest assets. Treat them as such. Without your customers, you're not in business. Without customers, your business is pointless. Make sure e-mail from your customers is replied to within at least a couple of days a couple of minutes if you can. Remember, don't match your competitors level of service, beat it. Many on-line retailers seem to forget about their customers. Make them your number 1 commitment, and your customers will love you.

Essentially, you need to offer customers a number of benefits to buy from you rather than the de facto leader (Amazon, for example) unless, of course, you are offering niche goods and have no competition which is not likely in todays world.

So, are you still enthusiastic about becoming an online retailer? If you've suddenly lost your enthusiasm, then you are probably not ready for this market. If you're still burning to overcome the challenges, then we don't think anything's going to get in your way.

It is important to realize that we are not trying to scare you out of starting your online business but merely warning you that entering the world of e-commerce isn't easy, despite the misconceptions. Anyone could buy a store downtown if they had the money, but not anyone could make it a success. That success is entirely dependent on your attitude and aptitude. Just because you are on the Web doesn't ensure your success.

Go, develop and launch. But remember, why should someone want to buy from you rather than their current source? Give them reasons. Now go and launch.

Starting and operating an Internet business is surprisingly similar to operating any other business. Good business practices, like building the confidence of customers through truthful advertising, providing products and services at a fair price, and developing long-term business relationships, are as applicable to Internet businesses as they are to any other businesses.

Having said that, there are some important differences related to Internet businesses.

Low Start-up Costs - When you decide to start a business online, you can do so with as little as a few hundred dollars and a good idea. However, don't be misled into believing that the Internet is an arena for instant riches with little or no effort. Nothing could be further from the truth. Like any business, it takes creativity, planning, money and hard work to be successful.

Suddenly it is not enough to simply have a good product or service. To use the Internet effectively, you now need to have or be able to acquire skills in graphic design, web server technology, programming, and a brand new marketing medium, not to mention skills needed in multi-lingual translations, international accounting and legal issues. Fortunately, it is not necessary that you have all this knowledge yourself. With the right combination of strategic partners and associates, all of these skills are easily found, if you know where to look. That's where we come in! We can get you in touch with all the professionals you need to accomplish your task.

The opportunities and ease of fostering strategic alliances to bolster marketing efforts is unsurpassed on the Internet. The reason we see so many cooperative relationships between companies online is that doing so has become so simple and so profitable. The advertising industry has found itself with many more possibilities as well as significantly more competition.

Another byproduct of business on the internet is that tracking potential customers as a group and visitor preferences is an ordinary part of business on the Internet.

Even if you do not think of your business as an international business, you must recognize that your visitors are likely to be from all over the world. You should consider whether or not you are prepared for international shipping and other transactions with countries other than your own. You should also strongly consider having your website translated into languages other than English. The percentage of non-US businesses on the Internet has risen dramatically in just the past years
