Avoid these important mistakes when building your ecommerce website!

December 27, 2019

When it comes to building an ecommerce website, you need to focus on many essential elements.

 

Each element needs to be taken into consideration in order to ensure that your ecommerce website performs and function well.

When you website is your business, the smallest error can be costly. With fierce competition online, you should really focus on getting everything right before your ecommerce website goes online.

Due to our 15 years of experience in developing and designing website, Softimpact team compiled a list of the most important mistakes to avoid before launching your ecommerce website.

 

1.  LONG, CONFUSING DOMAIN NAME

Having yourself a long and difficult to spell domain name will prevent your visitors from visiting or even returning to your website. Users tend to access websites which they remember their URL.

 

2.  NO LOGO

Logo is your business identity. Having a logo for your ecommerce website will help visitors remember it more compared to not having one.

 

3.  LACK OF RESEARCH

Market studies are crucial to start an ecommerce business. Deep and good research will help you build better business plan and vision for your ecommerce website.

 

4.  NO PROPER ABOUT US PAGE

Visitors tend to trust websites they know more about. Having a proper about us page telling about the business, the history, the vision, etc… will help you gain visitors trust and sell more.

 

5.  NOT FOCUSING ON THE SEO STRATEGY

SEO is most important to help your ecommerce website appears at the top of the search pages. Getting the help of an SEO expert will give you competitive advantage over the others.

6.  FOCUSING ON TOO MANY THINGS

Limit your industries. Focusing on too many things will lead you and your clients to confusion.

 

7.  NOT SERVING CUSTOMER INTEREST

The customer always comes first. Work on serving your customers no matter what.

 

8.   NOT THINKING THROUGH THE SHIPPING COSTS

Having an ecommerce website without having a proper delivery network system is worth nothing. Establishing a strong delivery service is essential for an ecommerce business.

 

9.  NOT TAKING CONTENT MARKETING SERIOUSLY

In websites, content is king. This is what gets you organic traffic. Having updated, interesting and well organized content will ensure you returning and satisfied visitors.

 

10. NOT MAKING YOUR WEBSITE RESPONSIVE IN DESIGN

Nowadays, the use of smartphones exceeded the use of a desktop. Having a responsive ecommerce website will ensure your visitors can access anytime anywhere.

 

11. LOADING SPEED

Slow loading websites will get the visitors to leave the page. You need to make sure that your ecommerce website loads fast before going online.

 

12. NOT ENOUGH PRODUCT INFORMATION

Visitors tend to buy products with relevant and sufficient information and reviews. No one will buy a product that knows nothing about.

 

13. CHOOSING THE WRONG DEVELOPMENT COMPANY

The biggest mistake people tend to make is not choosing an experienced trusted supplier to build their ecommerce business. Softimpact provides more than 15 years of experience in developing and designing websites, secured payments gateways, secured hosting, and high level of professionalism and customer service.
