Everyone's talking about E-commerce. From books and airline tickets to cars and condos, the Internet is the place to do business. In fact, experts predict E-commerce spending will reach $222 billion in transactions by the year 2001, up from just $13 billion in 1999. That's good news for your business. E-commerce has proven to be one of the most powerful new ways to:
Sell more products and services
Quickly and efficiently reach a wide range of customers and prospects
Improve operational efficiencies
Save on sales and operational expenses
But to win in the exploding E-commerce arena takes a well-planned, well-executed approach. More than merely latching on to the latest technology, you need to build a total E-commerce strategy that focuses on your business a total solution that puts it all together.
There's no doubt, E-commerce is a great way for you to sell more. But beyond meeting sales quotas, there's so much more that your E-commerce solution provides:
Create new selling opportunities
Opening your business on the Web means you give customers the opportunity to do business with you all day, every day. It's how you can reach customers in new markets that were before either off-limits or just not practical to pursue. You'll also create opportunities to offer complementary "sell-up" goods and services, so that you maximize each online contact.
Strengthen customer loyalty
With a well-designed, convenient online selling environment, you help create a unique site "experience" that makes for happy, satisfied customers. Because you've made it easier than ever to stay in touch, you can increase the frequency of customer interactions. Rather than out-of-sight, out-of-mind, you keep in the forefront of customers' growing click-and-buy habits.
Gain operational efficiencies
While E-commerce gets you moving more products to more customers, at the same time you're able to streamline and automate order management a double benefit to your bottom line. And by providing convenient "self-service" applications, like account inquiries, you further offload previously labor-intensive tasks.
Target your business
While you're taking on new business and filling orders, the data associated with your E-commerce activities all become part of a highly intelligent database that helps you learn invaluable lessons from customer behavior. More knowledge means you can quickly find ways to improve your business, and seize new opportunities.
