Ecommerce: How to get it right

pink

Often, when we meet new people in real life, we smile, greet them, give them a firm hand shake (well, there’s nothing worse than a limp hand shake is there?!) and look them right in the eyes.

It’s easy to gain someone’s trust if your encounters with them are positive, personable and on a level that resonates well with who you are and what your expectations are. 

In an ever more digital world though, with more and more business being carried out on-line, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for e-commerce start-ups to earn and gain the trust of potential customers using their website alone.

Often businesses are more concerned with a quick fix, “Get us online!” – Well, I’m sorry but a presence isn’t enough. The manner in which you deal with potential customers and the setting you create for them, can be the decider between a short lived idea and potentially a huge ROI. Cha Ching!

What if the typography is so garish it makes it’s readers want to pull their own eyeballs out rather than look at it for a moment longer? Epic fail. Continue reading

Reviews feed reputation – feed it wisely!

Product, service and website reviews are fantastic vehicles to get your brand on the road to a status of trust. Our most recent client Heinnie uses it to their advantage and has never looked back.

Users are far more likely to visit your website and make orders online, if they feel like they can relate to the brand and its values; trust is a rather large part of that. Value from written reviews is key to this, but it also goes so much further, when they are shared through various social media channels too. Continue reading
