E-commerce is really another way of talking about companies that sell online. In recent years there has been a lot of negative media about the decline of the high street, yet it is apparent that online selling is good for both businesses and customers. On the one hand, less overheads in the form of business premises and staff mean higher profit margins and on the other hand, buying online is convenient in an increasingly pressurised world. Spending less time on the high street means more time for friends and relatives. Moreover, we all work longer hours and our social networks are spread over wider geographical distances, therefore many of us simply don't have to time to trudge up and down the high street looking for goods and services.
E-commerce is at the vanguard of business and encompasses anything that involves an online financial transaction, from hospitality and catering to creative services and collaborative consumption. Online payment can also take many forms from credit or debit card to PayPal or wire transfer. We also ensure that we integrate e-commerce sites with a Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) marketing strategy to enable potential customers to find you and your unique products and services online. However, we also use our web development skills to make your website as user-friendly and engaging as possible to ensure customers don't go elsewhere. A good, easy to use and above all secure e-commerce website is the key to encouraging repeat custom. East Sussex Web Design are experts at creating e-commerce systems that engage and reassure end-users and generate the “click-throughs” necessary for good SEO.
