Freelancing Options for Ecommerce Development and Design

Finding a place to hire an ecommerce designer or developer is a little trickier than it might initially seem. You have the option to go with job boards, expert communities or cheap labor sites.

I'm not about to directly recommend places like Upwork and Freelancer.com. Although I've had a few logos designed by people on Fiverr, we're talking about constructing and managing your ecommerce website. These are some of the more complex forms of websites out there, so it's not recommended considering you can find somewhat affordable designers and developers who are known to do a great job.

Does Blogging for Ecommerce Really Improve Business?

We've all heard it. Content is king.

Yes, that's true. But quality content, especially blog posts, are extremely hard to come by.

Using Social Media for Customer Service

Whether a customer contacts you through email, phone, chat or a support ticket, they want a fast response. At that moment in time that's the only thing they desire.

Therefore, a speedy response time should always be your primary objective when establishing a support system. After that the customer is going to judge you on the quality of support. This ties into how knowledgeable you sound, if you resolve their problem on the first try and if you're accommodating to any problems they have encountered on your site.

Best Shopify Apps for Bringing in New Traffic

As an ecommerce professional, one of the first things you learn is that you're much better off trying to keep customers than finding new ones.

It costs five times as much to attract a new customer compared to retaining an old one, so it's certainly worthwhile to setup things like email newsletters, cart abandonment tools and loyalty programs. Those VIPs are the ones that are going to keep your business afloat.

And that's fine, but what about actually getting those customers in the first place? Then, what about when you hit a plateau where you need to once again establish your marketing strategies to accumulate more new customers?
