================== ARTICLE START ==================
Business on the internet is often referred to as E-Commerce.
Some people do business completely through e-commerce. Their
customers come from the internet, and they do all their
communication on the internet. More commonly, businesses have
both a brick-and-mortar storefront and an internet presence.
This is often referred to as limited e-commerce. Almost any
business, however, from large corporations to individual
freelancers, benefits from a web presence. A website is a sign
of your professionalism. It can be set up solely for the
information value or, ideally, it can be designed to generate
leads. A presence on the web shows that you understand today's
technology and the customer's need for information. A good
website shows customers why they would benefit from working
E-commerce has grown into a revolution that currently involves
almost every kind of business. It is now becoming unusual to
learn of people who do not have internet access in their home,
especially if they have school-age children. Almost every
workplace uses the internet. People have learned to go first to
the web when they want information, particularly when they want
information on new products or information on how to increase
their earnings. This tendency will only continue to grow, as
children today are increasingly web savvy.
E-commerce also offers both price and time savings to
individuals. As we become increasingly busy, it is quicker to
go online to find products than to drive from store to store.
Often the product is less expensive online, even after paying
If you want to become involved in e-commerce, the first step is
to find a good e-commerce webhost. Unless you are a
sophisticated webmaster with an independent streak, look for an
all-in-one provider that offers a feature-laden control panel
and a wide range of templates. Though you can usually customize
templates, you need to start with a variety from which to
choose. A good wizard that walks you through the steps of
constructing and using your site is also helpful. Ease of use
is important so you can get your site up fast and
professionally and make changes easily at a later date.
Your hosting service should have auto-responders for your
clients and an easy way to make purchases. Even if you are
selling only one product you want to make it as easy as
possible for the customer to buy it. Check for the ability to
import and export data. If you already have a database and
choose a vendor that does not allow you to import it, you will
have to retype everything. Export capabilities will save you
time and trouble should you ever choose a new vendor.
When choosing a complete e-commerce solution for your business,
look for hosts who offer a variety of marketing options, payment
options for your customers, and automated shipping options. If
the client cannot pay the way he wants, he will not buy. If
shipping does not happen quickly, he may not become a repeat
Also look for an e-commerce solution that allows you to analyze
traffic flow. In order for your business to grow, you need to
see what kinds of marketing are bringing traffic and sales. You
also need to look at such things as cost and customer service.
Choosing the right hosted solution can take some time, but
getting it right the first time is important. Take the time to
choose a high-quality provider who will help your business to
