A lot of people might think that e-commerce is as simple as just putting up a website and instituting some sort of payment methodology.
And sure, you could do that and call it a day.
But you’d be doing your current and future customers, and yourself and your business, a disservice. There’s much more to e-commerce and to creating a thoughtful strategy than just throwing something up and being done with it.
First, you have to realize that ignoring the e-commerce game is something you do at your own peril.
E-commerce is where the future is at and there’s no escaping it. And you have to have a marketing strategy that accommodates that.
You have to understand your competitors, and you have to understand what the best practices are for positioning your e-commerce site for ultimate success.
This includes things like brand messaging and keyword optimization, too.
