How to Decide on the Best CMS for Your eCommerce Site?

It has never been easier to build an online presence than today. Even online stores today are mimicking the experience of the brick and mortar stores with product displays, and images very close to the real thing. eCommerce merchants understand that the online shopping experience has to go beyond the simple product browsing and shopping cart functionalities. In order to keep today’s informed customer engaged, they have to use informative content to make their online store interesting to shop in. While the product display is important, it is equally important to have great content to complement the product for better customer engagement. The content becomes the primary spokesperson in an eStore.

Or does this strategy only work for certain established and niche industries? Are websites really necessary? Social Media sites like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter are free, easy to use and update automatically and provide a ready audience for products and services. Why go to all the bother of having a website then?

The Case for Websites

While social media is free and offers a great way to market a business, the functionality of these sites is limited and that is the biggest drawback. There are several things that a website can do that Social Media cannot. Advanced functionality aside, having a website adds online credibility and respectability to your brand. Some larger companies frown upon employees using Social Media during office hours and may even block access to these sites through their firewalls. If you are selling business to business this needs to be taken into consideration. […]
