One of the fastest growing segments in business today is E-commerce. As the mobile market continues to expand, so does the opportunity for increased sales. Never has it been so easy for someone to make a purchase quickly and effortlessly.

So, what is E-Commerce?

Simply put – E-Commerce is a broad term for any type of business or transaction that involves the transfer of information across the internet. This can be an online store, an auction site, a music site, or an exchange of services or goods to both consumers and other businesses. A business providing services electronically, can often reach the customer faster, cheaper and much more conveniently than traditional methods

Providing services and goods through the internet has removed the barriers of time and distance. Someone in the US can easily conduct business with someone in China or the United Kingdom, just as easily as they can with someone physically located next door.

Building an Online Store

Creating an online store can be difficult if you are unaware of ecommerce principles and without having a plan and goal in mind for your business. It is important that you take the time to research the programs and opportunities that you wish to use.

Some of the most important decisions will be finding a mobile friendly website platform, the Shopping Cart Software, how to accept online payments, and order fulfillment.

There are many turnkey software solutions that you can build, edit, implement and maintain. These are usually the most cost effective.

E-Commerce Law

Just as there are regulations for a brick and mortar business there are also ones for e-commerce businesses. It is important to have a basic understanding of the e-commerce law. Online sellers (especially ones that sell internationally or across state lines) should be aware of the legal and financial considerations; this is particularly true in regard to privacy, security, copyright and taxes. Most of these are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and through the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DCMA).

Marketing Strategy

As with any business you need a strong marketing strategy for driving targeted traffic to your site and encouraging repeat customers and customer loyalty.

As you can see, E-Commerce can be a very rewarding and great addition to your services. When set up correctly, it can provide you with many new opportunities.
