Whether your business is just getting off the ground or well-established, having an attractive, user-friendly, and reliable website is key in keeping your customers satisfied. For those of you still in the process of setting up a business website, we've listed 2 of our favorite e-commerce websites that are bound to give you great results:
1) Shopify | Shopify is currently powering 500,000+ online stores, and has helped businesses process over $40 billion worth of sales! With over 100 professional and beautiful storefront themes, as well as an intuitive, user-friendly system that can easily sync with your Facebook page, various apps, and even brick and mortar retail store, we think Shopify is a great choice for business owners new to building an online store. To learn more about Shopify's pros and cons, read this in-depth article.
2) Squarespace | While Squarespace is still growing as an e-commerce platform, it's free domain, integration with Getty images, aesthetically beautiful templates, and straightforward, user-friendly backend make it a top choice for those building e-commerce sites. It's stylish, modern, and offers 24/7 customer support and seemingly limitless design options. Learn more about Squarespace's pros and cons here.
So which should you choose? At Imagine Media Consulting, we use Squarespace, as we sell services, rather than products. Many of our clients, on the other hand, use Shopify, as it was build specifically for the sale of products online. If you're having trouble choosing between the two, here's an awesome article listing out each site's pros and cons.
