An ecommerce website exists solely for one purpose—to generate profit. Yes, other important factors go into it, such as providing good customer service, making the site easy to use, and of course, offering high quality products. But ultimately, your goal in building an ecommerce website is to make money. It’s only a logical assumption that the better the site, the more successful it will be, and the more money you’ll make. That’s why you need a professionally designed website, and Design Rockets can help.
At Design Rockets, we understand your focus is running your business. You don’t want to have to worry about whether your website will work the way it’s supposed to. You also don’t want to spend your entire marketing budget on a website design, but you still want a high quality site that will deliver customers and results. To that end, Design Rockets offers diverse ecommerce website design packages to fit every budget.
The ecommerce websites we design for our customers are created to drive sales. One of the ways we help you accomplish this is by including strong calls to action throughout your website. Our designs are also created with your customers in mind, offering optimal user experiences that will help bring them back to your ecommerce website again and again.
Shopping cart abandonment is a concern for all online merchants. We strive to help you reduce those instances by integrating an easy-to-use checkout process in all our ecommerce website designs. The easier it is for your customers to understand and use your shopping cart and checkout, the more likely they will be to complete their purchases, and make future purchases as well.
Advantages of Creating Your Own Ecommerce Website
Several online merchants offer entrepreneurs the ability to create online storefronts using their existing infrastructure and tools. Companies like Amazon.com, eBay, and Etsy allow users to sell products through their well-established websites. While this may seem an easier route than building your own ecommerce website, you will quickly find it puts you at a disadvantage in the online marketplace.
By using another company’s infrastructure, you are limited to their offerings, which means you may not have much control over your storefront’s design or functionality. You will have to agree and adhere to their policies in order to use their site tools, and your brand will always be overshadowed by the larger entity’s brand. But more than all of this, the biggest disadvantage to using another company’s storefront is that you will be required to pay them a commission, which means a reduction in your profits.
Why pay to use someone else’s website for your business? You can have your own professionally designed ecommerce website and enjoy these benefits:
- Maintain full control over the site’s layout, design, and functionality
- Keep 100% of the profits—no commissions pay to host sites
- Build your own brand rather than helping to build someone else’s
