Selling Online with an Ecommerce Website

Getting visitors to your site

Search Engine Optimisation

If you have a product or service that you can order or deliver it’s worth considering whether you can sell it online through a webshop.

Today’s consumer has time management and convenience on their mind when it comes to purchasing, and that’s why online sales is the fastest growing sales channel.

Between 2010 and 2017, online sales grew annually at more than 10% - even when High Street sales have wobbled, or in some cases fallen.

Selling online doesn’t have to be exclusively for big businesses – Ash Hill Marketing can help you create and organise a web shop so getting online is a simple and easy process.

Why it could be great for you

A surprising number of small businesses still do not have a website. And a significant number are saying the Web isn’t all that important to their business, according to the May 2016 SurePayroll Small Business Scorecard.

While 72% do have a company website, only 26% are using it for e-commerce – selling their products and services directly online.
Only 12% were looking to include an e-commerce component. https://www.surepayroll.com/resources/blog/may-2016-scorecard

  • 24hour shopping: Say goodbye to customers who couldn't visit becuase you're closed
  • Global Reach: You aren’t relying on Facebook to share your page, or even for someone to walk past your shop – you can be seen anywhere
  • It’s cheaper for you: Not only can you make more sales, but you’ll have lower overheads per sale too
  • You can showcase your full product range, or certain parts of it – there’s endless opportunities for merchandising

Consumers have come to expect online ordering from even the smallest businesses.
Research found that 56% expect small businesses to offer online shopping capabilities.
With so many small businesses already cashing in on eCommerce, you could already be losing out to your competitors if you don’t sell online.

The Technologies we use

Depending on your needs we build our webshops with two trusted technologies: WordPress WooCommerce and OpenCart.

WooCommerce Logo

WooCommerce can only be used with WordPress sites, but its behind around 30% of online stores globally.
It’s simple to configure and it works with payment systems like PayPal.

OpenCart Logo

The other system we use is OpenCart. OpenCart is great for bespoke websites as it’s much more customisable.
With that level of flexibility you do get a steeper learning curve – but then you do get your shop to look exactly as you want.
