2019 is nearly upon us and many business owners are curious to learn what is in store with the e-commerce sector. As a growing number of individuals are migrating into the online retail community to promote their products and services, it only makes sense that this sector will shift towards providing enterprise-level solutions as opposed to the blanket approaches that have often been associated with more traditional e-commerce platforms. Let us take a look at some of the changes that we can expect to witness as well as how these might impact the ways in which small businesses manager their online presence.
The Domain Registration Process Made Simple
It should be clear from the very beginning that any website will need to be equipped with a catchy and memorable title if the owner wishes to receive a respectable number of inbound hits. However, it can be tricky to buy domain names; especially for those who are new to the process. No longer will this task represent a veritable “shot in the dark”. New and smart algorithms are able to quickly determine which names are available as well as those that have already been taken. Interesting enough, it is also possible to be presented with other ideas and suggestions based off of keyword similarities and the industry in question. Thus, the website owner in question will be provided with more options than ever before.
Assuming that the name is selected, configuration complications are taken out of the equation and the remainder of the process is highly automated, enabling a website to get up in running in no time at all. this is particularly helpful for those who may need to register multiple sites (such as anyone who plans on marketing a number of dissimilar products while centralising their revenue generation capabilities).
Smart and User-Friendly Retail-Based Solutions with an Edge
One of the issues associated with larger e-commerce providers such as Big Commerce and Magento is they are not known for their user-friendly interfaces. In the majority of cases, the individual would have to possess previous coding and/or HTML experience. This presented a very real problem for budding entrepreneurs. The same holds true for in-house legacy systems. However, the advent of “smart” e-commerce providers such as Shopify signifies that anyone can now enter into the online retail community. this is why we should expect a large influx of new websites during 2019 and well beyond.
Anyone who is contemplating such a move is encouraged to perform a significant amount of research well in advance. Not only must the software be easy to work with, but it should be malleable enough to accommodate any future changes as they are required. Agility will therefore be one of the predominant factors to implement during the coming year. As the price of e-commerce solutions continues to drop, they are becoming quite popular with those who are looking for a higher return on investment without being forced to commit massive amounts of capital before their website even becomes live.
