E-Commerce Stores and Online Shopping
Owners of online storefronts have realized that a well designed and maintained online storefront is less expensive, easier to manage, and has no overhead. There are no store hours or days off, and best yet, your store works for you even while you sleep. Online stores are cheap, easy to manage, and can be a money maker 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Come to work each morning to find orders waiting to be filled, and sales being made even while you sleep. All that you do is log in, pack and ship your orders.

Top Reasons to Take Your Business Online
Escape The Confines of Your Local Storefront
Have a small shop in an out of the way location? Do you find that you’re spending hundreds of dollars a year trying to get people to notice you, but can’t build your business because you’re storefront limits your growth? With an online shopping cart, customers across the country are able to come inside and browse your inventory. Your small showroom can become a virtual online empire for less than $1 a day.
Track inventory on a per product or per product option level. Inventory is automatically reduced after a purchase (and added after a return, if enabled) and products become unavailable for purchase when inventory falls to zero. You can set low inventory levels and will be reminded to order more products when stock falls below this level.
Sell on Facebook
SocialShop 2 lets you offer fans a complete browsing and buying experience, including search, checkout and product comparisons — without leaving Facebook. They can also write reviews, manage orders, redeem gift certificates and more.
Search Engine Optimization
Our online storefronts include everything you need to rank at the top of the search engines, including custom URLs, page title and meta details for products, web pages, categories, brands and news items, as well as search engine friendly links, tableless templates, proper use of header tags, HTML/XML sitemaps and image alt tags.
Coupons & Gift Certificates
Easily create trackable coupons which give customers a dollar or percentage discount on their order. Coupons can be set to expire after a certain date or number of uses, and you can run reports to see coupon usage.
Customers can choose from a variety of gift certificate designs, which they can purchase through your store. The gift certificate is then emailed to the recipient and they can easily see their remaining balance from the “My Account” page.
Automated Email Marketing
Imagine this: someone buys a t-shirt from your online store. One week later they receive a 20% off coupon to buy a matching hoodie. Then two weeks later they receive an email with 20% off a matching hat.
Define rules to add customers and newsletter subscribers to your iContact lists based on the product, category or brand they’ve purchased then setup a few autoresponders in iContact and let the rest take care of itself!
