It is clear from the research that the majority of entrepreneurs seeking ecommerce solutions type in 'cheap ecommerce solutions', 'easy ecommerce solutions', 'affordable ecommerce solutions' in their online searches in Google and Yahoo. With this information in mind many ecommerce developers adapt these same terms in their marketing and advertising to attract new web customers looking for a cheap entry into the Internet marketing business. I'm thinking of the analogy of the spider inviting the fly into its web. The result is predictable and catastrophic. Likewise with adapting an ecommerce solution that does not deliver on all the variables, the end result is invariably a wasteful spend of money. It is therefore essential that prospective ecommerce entrepreneurs do their homework intensively before selecting an 'affordable' or 'cheap' solution. There are certain guidelines to be observed in making choices that will protect your investment. First, chart the features you require to provide the requisite ecommerce solution and then you can short-list all the providers that incorporate all the features you are looking for in your solution. The key element to remember is planning. As the old adage says “if you fail to plan, your plan will fail”. Ensure that you have covered the crucial areas in an ecommerce solution. The safest bet is to commission an ecommerce solutions provider to develop your ecommerce website integrating all the features you want. Check if your customer base is going to be local or global and consider if you need a shopping cart (where you are dealing in more than one product or service). Decide on payment options you will offer your customers and select the best marketing strategy to promote your products or services. Most importantly consider your budget and how that will impact on your choice of ecommerce solution. A good solution provider should give you a head start on your competitors and boost your revenue whilst reducing your expenditure and boosting your customer services. You will find that cheap ecommerce solutions can be very expensive in the long run and be prepared to budget for an effective sales platform.
