Ecommerce websites are popping up all around us. Are all of them successful? No. Most fail. But why? One of the most common reasons is that they do not put the needs of the user before the ideas of the business.
Laying out your online store raises various questions. Your homepage serves as a hub for the best stuff on your online store, with components such as image sliders, shopping cart buttons, product thumbnails and buttons, and email marketing subscription forms.
Ever thought about selling shower curtains with your original design printed on them?
How about coffee mugs with inside office jokes? Or statement phone cases?
These custom products are sold all over the internet, but the good news is that there's always room for more creativity.

The main problems you'll encounter involve fulfilment, billing, designing, and sourcing. Luckily, Printify takes care of all of these.
I have a friend who runs a successful e-commerce business. He started off with just two small online stores a few years ago. When I asked him how he managed to climb so high in his trade, he responded saying that he was doing the exact same thing he was supposed to if he had opened a small flower shop near my house.
Now, you must be wondering – what does that have to with a flower shop?
Certainly, that wasn't a clear answer and I really wanted to know the secret.
Here's what he revealed.
When you think of free logo design services, it might make you cringe. The reason for this is usually because you're stuck with a generic logo building tool and minimal branding assistance. However, Wix is taking an alternative approach with its logo maker, offering a beautiful design experience for free, along with the option to purchase high-quality files if you like it. The reason the Wix logo maker works so well is because of the fact that you can develop the logo based on what your brand already looks like. On the other hand, if you're just thinking about your brand image. the Wix logo maker is a wonderful place to start.
You’ve probably noticed that credit cards are gaining ground, unless, of course, you’ve been on a mission to the moon during the last decade. Not only are they gaining ground, but they are essential in any ecommerce enterprise.
Now that we’ve settled this, it's good to also know that credit cards come in various colors, have several backgrounds, and each has its own special features. Some mightier than others, but all good for commerce. That's why you shouldn't miss to add “We Accept Credit Cards” sign from your online shop.
We have all probably been victims of an impractical or just plain unusable checkout system while trying to perform a purchase online. Most websites are built with the intention to convert the visitors into customers but that won’t happen when a poor checkout design is being put to use. Potential customers are looking for a quick and satisfying online experience which means you need to make sure that happens.
When getting ready for the year ahead, it’s a good idea to fill in the gaps in your software collection, especially when there is so much good software you can now get online for free.
Beware however – not all “free” things are really free. First, of course, you should avoid cracked versions of payware, because that can get you into trouble in more ways than one. Another thing to watch for is that some free software is supported by ads, while other software may have undesirable behaviors such as tracking what you do online.
