There are many different reasons to have a website…from a simple one page affair all the way up to a four thousand page government site that is so convoluted that even the ecommerce web designer company that did it have forgotten what it’s all for. But the usual type of website that most of us are used to is the standard ecommerce website or online shop.
If you are looking to start an online shop then there are many ways to do it. You can have a simple one page affair with your telephone number and a list of your products perhaps with a photograph. This would be fine for a local garden service or panel beaters. And you could probably knock it up yourself within a few days or so.
But if you need something a little more complex…similar to a high street shop, let us say, then things get a little more difficult. You need a shop front, different departments and a method of payment. You can do this without professional help by using a website hosting service or such but bear in mind, shops are fitted out by shop fitting expert. The shop owner can help out and say what he or she wants but the actual skilled labour is handed out.
So what I am saying is; I really would recommend using an ecommerce web design company to help when starting an ecommerce site. We will help with customised site designs, secure hosting and such at what you will find to be a surprisingly fair price. Especially when you consider what a disaster a DIY site could be. Because one should always remember – a bad website can drive business away just as well as a good website can attract it.
