e-Commerce is any Commercial Transaction involving direct exchange of payments for products via the Internet or Web.
An e-Commerce Website is a website with shopping cart and checkout functionality that allows visitors to buy products online and transact their payment online. There are millions of e-Commerce enabled Websites on the Web, but in reality, most of them conduct very little business.
See the e-Commerce Case Studies (in the right column) and if you have questions or wish to find out more please Call 716.775.0206 to talk with a Web Marketing Consultant about an e-Commerce website for your business.
A 1stFlash e-Commerce Solution provides all necessary information and functionality to promote Your business, that an Optimized e-Business Solution provides, such as an online catalog, a blog, e-Newsletter publishing… But it also contains the integrated shopping cart and checkout functionality that are required for online transactions and payment processing.
e-Commerce solutions offer busineses with a catalog of products, the potential to significantly broaden their sales territory. Typical applications include selling retail and/or wholesale: air filters, electronics, hardwood furniture, gourmet food, heating / cooling equipment & parts, janitorial equipment & supplies, sporting goods…
We can guarantee that you will be very surprised when you hear about some of the very expensive equipment and parts that our existing clients are now able to sell nationally, and even internationally, through the e-Business and e-Commerce systems that we have developed for them. In our experience, individual e-Commerce transactions totaling several thousand $US are common. And individual e-Business generated orders can easily exceed hundreds of thousands of $US.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of e-Commerce websites, developed by advertising companies, website design firms, or even by business owners themselves, are only able to achieve a relatively meager (if any) ROI from their web marketing budget. In contrast, over the past decade, 1stFlash Web Marketing Consultants have developed several very successful e-Business and e-Commerce-based systems that have nucleated and grown extremely substantial businesses. See our Case Studies.
A 1stFlash Optimized e-Commerce Solution includes:
The 1stFlash e-Commerce System is not just a website, it is a finely-tuned Market-Centric online selling system:
e-Commerce System = e-Commerce Strategy + e-Commerce Solution
A 1stFlash e-Commerce System is far more than a simple e-Commerce Website. It is an optimized online information source that is easily found by highly targeted prospects with very specific Needs, and it includes an inbuilt selling system that compells them to buy directly from your online catalog. If case your rapidly expanding catalog doesn’t carry exactly what they need, they will even contact you to get it on order for them!
These strategically planned e-Commerce Systems do not ‘trick’ anyone into spending time on them. They are simply designed around a coherent Web Marketing Strategy that focuses on attending to the specific Needs of their target market, and present your business offering as a reasonable solution.
When you decide to invest in a 1stFlash e-Business or e-Commerce System, you first invest in developing your optimum Web Marketing Strategy. This is your Market-Centric Online Business Plan that defines every aspect of your website content; exactly what content will appear in the website, how it will appear, and exactly where it will appear.
When we build Your Optimized e-Commerce Solution, the precise order in which your informational content is presented will follow a series of carefully constructed ‘buy lines’, along which site visitors will progress towards ‘conversion’. This specifically targeted informational sales process will function as your sales prospecting engine!
