How can I trade my website more effectively?
First take a holistic view of your organisation and the part that eCommerce plays in meeting your business objectives. As a business, the operation of your website needs to be a seamless part of your company as a whole. You cannot trade effectively when you are having to do things twice – once for your “traditional” business and again for the web. This is true for your customers, products, orders and for your marketing collateral – everything needs to have a single view and a single instance. Only then can you understand where your opportunities and risks lie and act upon them effectively.
This strategy will probably require a review of your systems integration requirements. Get your systems talking (ecommerce / Order Management / Inventory Management / CRM), in real time, with accurate data exchanges and you have the basics in place to trade efficiently and effectively. Then recognise that the world of eCommerce is a fast-paced industry that’s constantly changing. Without an agile and customisable eCommerce solution to keep you ahead of the curve, you’re putting yourself at a disadvantage compared to your competition.
You must ensure you have everything you need to market, sell and merchandise across every digital channel (online, mobile and social) so you can stay “head and shoulders” above your competition.
