A steady move in businesses wanting to sell online0
Over the last year in the Toronto area businesses of all sizes seem to be more and more intested in selling their products and services on-line. Many of the calls that Globalgraphics now receives are enquiries about ecommerce websites.
This is of course great news for us web design agencies, but also great news for people who shop online. The latter because people get a better choice of online stores to shop and as competition increases between stores online prices become more competitive.
The time couldn't be better for businesses looking to set themselves online as well. There are plenty of online store solutions available. The trick is finding the solution that fits in with your business requirements.
Top tip when looking around for an online store solution is to make sure that whatever you opt for has the capability and flexibility to grow with your online requirements. This is where many 'open source' software solutions fail miserably. Time and time again we receive calls from businesses who have chosen the 'open source' route only to find that the website functionality they need just isn't there.
Do your research and ask questions from web design agencies. Make sure that your investment in any ecommerce solution is a long term investment.
