Well, here we are in the 21st century. Even though there are various online stores, I had never thought about owning my own and I am quite a savvy business person. I had always just associated shopping with the high street and shopping malls. I have a music shop in the high street and numerous loyal customers.
Quite a few of those customers had asked me if I had an on-line shop and that is when it occurred to me, that this was a possibility to gain more custom. I had loads of concerns about this but they were soon laid to rest when I researched the idea and discovered how simple it was.
One of my friends recommend a organization that had built their on-line store so I decided to give them a ring. I hoped that they would not use technical terms as I really would not be knowledgeable about what they were talking about. However, I was pleasingly surprised, not only that they were exceedingly friendly, but that they actually spoke English, and I understood what they were saying!
They took a lot of time out to understand precisely what I was looking for. As the questions were not technical but more about running a shop, i was able to answer them without problems. I detailed everything in an email and they went through each phase with me. I must say as time progressed far from being uneasy I was getting quite excited!
It seemed like next to no time before they announced that my on-line store was ready. I was so excited and jumped on the computer to take a look. The end result was great and just what I was looking for. The whole thing looked very smooth and professional, and was apparent as my brand. I pretended I was a client and browsed through my brand new shop. But more crucial that just looking good, the online shop was safe and secure, and easy for me to maintain with just a few simple clicks.
The company also explained to me how to apply SEO strategies. It stands to reason that no on-line shop is going to be a winner unless people can find it, and they’ll only be able to find it if the search engines display it prominently near the top of the search results for relevant keywords. It was reassuring to know that throughout the entire design operation my online shop had been developed to encompass a whole range of the very latest techniques and methods for achieving this search engine optimisation.
Lots of customers are delighted when they find out that I now have an on-line shop. The orders are coming in and I have noticed various new customers as well. I have a challenge to carry on with what they call off site SEO. I guess you can liken it to swimming, once you are on the surface, you have to stay there by paddling.
