‘No Pain, No Gain’ seems to be the way things go for everything in life, whether it’s a fitness program or even an online business. No matter what it is we want to achieve, we have to endure a painful ordeal to get it, right?
Let’s look at all the hassles you will have to go through (or already have gone through) when you want to build an ecommerce store and/or take your business online.
PAIN #1: Finding the right designer
You need someone who can translate your vision for your website in a web-ready design, while keeping in mind all branding requirements.
PAIN #2: Finding the right developer
Then you need to find a website developer who can translate the visual design into a functioning website, keeping in mind user experience and functionality.
PAIN #3: Finding the right domain-selling and hosting company
You need to decide where to buy your website’s domain name from and on whose servers you will host your website. Understanding the choices and all the features offered requires major time spent just educating yourself on all of it.
PAIN #4: Finding the right payment gateway
If you’re selling online, you have to choose a payment gateway that is right for you, based on many different technical and non-technical parameters, then have your web developer integrate it with your website.
PAIN #5: Finding the right vendor for site maintenance
Once your site is ready and launched, you will need someone who will update and maintain your website on a regular basis. Often, the developer who built your site has then disappeared when it comes time to make changes!
PAIN #6: Finding the right fulfillment partner
Finally, if you’re shipping products to customers, you will also need to find the right logistics partner and then negotiate with him to offer you a reasonable deal.
THE BIGGEST PAIN: The Cost
More than anything else, you will need to start with a large capital investment to pay for all the above-mentioned professionals and expenses.
It is easy to see why so many people are put off by the thought of taking their business online.
But imagine if this process was not as convoluted or as expensive as it is right now… Would you let anything stop you from breaking the Internet barrier and offering your goods and services to the large number of shopping buyers online?
