Stepping into ecommerce Advantages and Disadvantages

The latest online business statistics suggest that e-commerce as a sector is growing steadily year over year. But the latest global events added some calamity to the markets. Spending across certain product categories is down, while other product verticals are booming.

 What are the advantages to starting an e-commerce business. Here’s why a growing cohort of an entrepreneur goes for e-commerce:

  1. Location independence. You can run an e-commerce business from anywhere in the world as long as you have a laptop and reliable internet access. On a personal level: you can travel indefinitely, live abroad, move to a more affordable location, etc. On an operations level: you have the flexibility to scale, compete internationally, earn a passive income and profit from arbitrage.
  2. Flexible work schedule. Once you get your business up and running, you can tune your work schedule to fit your lifestyle. By using smart integrations, delegation and automation you can run a growing e-commerce business with a co-founder, lean team (or even alone) without clocking in 12-hour shifts.

We at Red Rabbit love to create online stores as this is one sector where results are measurable.

    Our eCommerce Development Process

    Our comprehensive eCommerce development strategy ensures a perfectly crafted website for your business.

    Consaltation

    In order to provide you with the best of service we have to get a feel of the business. We start with booking a free 30-minute consultation:

    • Over the phone
    • In-person
    • Creative Development form:  Consists of questions that allow our team to get a feel of your business. you can request and fill in the form in your own time.

    If you chose over the phone or in-person consultation we would fill in the Creative Development form in order to save you time. After agreeing on a color scheme, font, pictures and web copy (see branding process) we would work on your first draft in PSD format. This process then allows our team to put a concept together in picture format (PSD, see pic) of all the pages we would create for you allowing you to see your website before we build it.

    Ware-frame

    Once the design has been signed off by you we would start work on the wireframe of the website. This is where we build the foundations and walls of the house. once this process is complete we start to add the details until we end up with a perfectly working responsive website or online store.

    You get to go through this and make necessary amendments once completed. Once we are happy with the design we go to work on the backend to make the user experience a delight, such as speed, look and extensive front end and back end checks.
