    Could You Run an E-Commerce Site?

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    E-commerce is no longer just a trend. Itís part of the online world which is definitely here to stay. These days, people use e-commerce for everything from holiday gifts to re-decorating an entire home. Itís popular, itís profitable and itís predominant on the Internet. But is it something you can do, too? Could you run an e-commerce site of your own?


    There are quite a few astoundingly good examples of successful e-commerce. The success of, eBay and other buying sites makes a great argument for giving online selling a try. But for every impressive success story, there are many less widely-known failures. Thereís no way to guarantee success with online selling, but there are a few tools you can use to greatly increase your chances. Before you get started, find out what you need to make it happen. What does it take to run an e-commerce site?


    It wouldnít be e-commerce without something to sell. Whether you create, re-sell or trade, youíll want eye-catching displays for every single one of your products. Include everything you offer. The great thing about online shopping is that all the products you might contrive to sell - no matter the amount - fit into virtual pages. You donít have to build handsome showrooms and display cases, because straightforward HTML will do the trick. You can fit everything on a single site.

    Displaying your products can be a monumental undertaking, however. For starters, you want to make sure all the product pages of your site are consistent. They should look exactly the same but for the product and product descriptions offered. Keep photographs the same size when possible, using the same background and fonts throughout. A consistent display will give your pages a professional, put-together look. Make sure the name of your site (and any corresponding logos or graphics) is visible on every page, because you always want your traffic to know where they are.

    Every product should have its own full-color picture and description. You can be as flowery or concise in this descriptive text as you like, but be sure to make the key features easy to spot. Customers will want pertinent information such as price, size, color availability, etc. Make sure these important details are easy to pick out.
