We Build Custom E-Commerce Solutions
For your business, it’s well worth the investment to work with Vontainment in Port charlotte in order to develop a customized e-Commerce web design aimed at improving conversion rates while attracting new customers at the same time. The modern website is so much more than a necessity now. Every business has a site, so it’s no longer as simple as merely having a website. You need a website that stands out from the pack, ranks higher than the competition, and develops both leads and potential clients, all at the same time. While there are numerous website building services out there providing cookie-cutter designs with limited features, these digital storefronts typically perform poorly on search engines.
Do You Know Your Options
One of the main reasons businesses turn to Shopify is because it claims to be beginner-friendly. Sadly you soon realize it still requires a web designer to truly customize your store theme. You may also run into issues with the features you need. From product options to shipping calculations these are additional fees. Shopify offers plugins that extend it but they come with monthly costs from $5 to hundreds. Even a simple store can easily cost you $300 a month.
WooCommerce is an extension to WordPress and the most used e-Commerce. We can build a feature-rich, easy-to-use, and fully customized online store based on Woo for the cost of a few months of Shopify. Your only residual cots are web hosting, domain name, and optional service plan. All are still a fraction of the cost to use Shopify.
Top Software Meets Cost effective Solution
Similar to Shopify, WooCommerce allows you to showcase an e-Commerce digital storefront through your website. This way, customers can visit your store through your website, and not some external source that’s not actually hosted and protected on your website. The benefit of WooCommerce allows you to have complete control over your online store, without being dictated by what your service provider will limit your access to or control over. With WooCommerce, the sky is really the limit and your store can look, function, and feature everything and anything you need for it to accomplish.
Want to know what else is great about WooCommerce? It’s a part of WordPress so not only will you receive a ton of support from its network of developers, but WooCommerce also speaks directly with search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing, allowing you to access and implement everything that is necessary to build and optimize your products, images, pages, and website as a whole. Shoppers who visit the website can search for products and find direct links to your products within the site, making it a wonderful and easy user experience.

What It Takes To succeed In E-commerce
When it comes to e-commerce stores competition is tough. Online stores have seen a boom over the last decade, and it is now estimated that there are more than 20 million eCommerce websites live on the internet.
By knowing your audience, you can tailor your marketing strategy to suit. With so much competition it is essential that you devise your products a unique selling point.You won’t see sales if you’re in an oversaturated market with nothing new to offer.
In an online world, word-perfect content that gets your message across is absolutely vital. Keeping content regularly updated, accurate, and informative is also a big help. Investing in a blog and delivering valuable content is one of the best e-commerce tips I can offer.
Online Marketplaces VS your Own Store
Online marketplaces are places where you can buy from many 3rd party sellers. Examples are Ebay, Walmart, Amazon, and Etsy. Some only have 3rd party sellers like Etsy. Others like Amazon and Walmart sell goods themselves and from 3rd parties.
The one main perk of selling on a marketplace is they handle advertising and driving traffic. Running your own store you become responsible for driving your traffic. One powerful option with you have with WooCommerce is being able to integrate with multiple online marketplaces. Updates to your store for stock and products are instantly synced. This is a great way to to drive sales from multiple places.
Unlike Shopify, WooCommerce allows you to have complete control over your online store, without being dictated by what your service provider will limit your access to or control over. With WooCommerce, the sky is really the limit and your store can look, function, and feature everything and anything you need for it to accomplish.
The downside is you really need a professional to get you going. It requires more tech skills to customize and setup features. The upside is your only continued costs are hosting and domain registration. This means your store isn’t tied to just one merchant account option. You are not restricted by another company’s terms of service. A single mistake, a couple chargebacks, or forgetting to update an expired credit card won’t result in losing your business.
Shopify is great if you need a simple shop with little options, minimal features and you don’t mind buying a not unique theme. At $30/mo It is affordable. It’s cheap, fast, ready to go solution for some. The downside that $30 will be $200 after enabling several features.
