Long gone are the days of trickery and chicanery brought by site builders who told you that E Commerce sites required magic potions, and incantations.

I just published www.popsflyshop.com a few days ago, and orders are already coming in. Even though there are a lot of additional plugins required to make this wordpress site fully functional and attractive, have a look at the final product.

WHAT MAKE FOR A SUCCESSFUL E COMMERCE SITE?

[cleeng_content id=”261755516″ description=”Read the rest of the story about what goes into a successful e commerce website.” price=”0.99″ t=”article” referral=”0.05″]Simply building and turning over an e commerce site to you won’t set the world on fire though! It really is only the first step, an infant, that will need a lot of care and feeding. If you are dedicated, you could see your baby mature quickly.

What makes for a good e commerce site?

– Damn good products or services
– A pleasant experience when visiting the website
– An e commerce site that works without fail and is safe
– New product and service introductions on a regular basis
– Social Media spreading the word about the products
– Product reviews from customers
– Great product descriptions
– Professional photography and video of the product or service in action

The internet is too large to deceive yourself into believing the old saying, “Build it, and they will come.” Yes, build it, then get to work![/cleeng_content]

WordPress 3.8 Update Out Now

December 12, 2013 Technical No Comments

Hold on just a minute though. Before you go running around updating your WordPress site, I suggest you do a couple of things first.
1 – wait
2 – backup your database and all files before you do the update.

I have been bitten by this on a personal website of mine, when a conflict arose from a plugin that was wreaking havoc on the site host server. They shut me down literally, shut me down, because the plugin was making infinite calls to action that were not doing anything but getting caught in a death spiral loop.

So hold tight, wait and see.

YouTube Videos A Powerful Force for Traffic and Information

I have noticed a marked increase in traffic flow to-and-from YouTube in the last eighteen months, and if you consider everyone’s ability to stream video I think the reason is obvious. We can finally watch video without those frustrating pauses and glitch loading symbols popping up every few seconds!

Not only are YouTube videos a huge bonus to your traffic, video is finally emerging as the most powerful force to get your information, about products, or whatever it is you’re about, out to the masses in the most informative way possible.

This revolution is well underway, but beware, bad video is like a horrible local auto, or carpet, or plumber commercial; people will turn away like the final second of a car crash. And they won’t come back if they don’t have to.

Above  is a video I recently completed for Richard Davis, a professor at the University of North Texas, for his website Richard Davis Sculpture.

Not only do videos inform, they are also a valuable design element, and should always say something that your words – YOUR CONTENT – does not say. If they are creatively entertaining, you will be rewarded even more.
