This Week's Insider Tip
Competing with Big Online Retailers - Better Website
By Tisha Hedges, Director of Operations of Worldwide Brands


Your website is the face of your company, because that is what people will see. A beautifully designed website with easy navigation and shopping procedures will go a long way to help you compete with big online retailers.

Take a cue from these bigger retailers as well by taking a look at how they arrange their websites and how the ordering process works. One of the big disadvantages that a big retailer has is they try to offer as many products as possible. With a smaller more focused site, you can make your navigation even simpler and keep your customers focused on what they should be buying.

Some things to consider when designing your online store:

1. Color
Choosing a good color theme for your site is extremely important. Don't just choose what YOU like, because your
favorite color of "puce" might not look right online or to others.

Colors set the mood and tone of your site. Did you know that the color orange means optimism? The color yellow is cheerful
and blue is trust and peace. Ever hear of color psychology? Colors have meaning and many shoppers will leave a site immediately
if the color isn't pleasing or gives them a wrong impression. Google the term Color Psychology to understand meanings behind
colors to help you with your decision. 

2. Images
Poor images on a website make the entire shopping experience poor.

Since the customer can't actually pick up the product and look at it, you need to provide them with enough clear images to make them feel as if they are. Images shot from different angles are important and images of the product in use are also helpful. Also, make the images look similar. If you get images from different suppliers because of multiple products offered, they should all have a similar background too so it doesn't look obvious they were taken somewhere different. 

3. Font
Just like with color, you have to really think about the font types that you want to use. Not just for your header, but also for your content, your navigation and more. There are so many websites out there that use tiny, hard to read font, cramming content together or just use an ugly or flowery font that is makes it extremely hard to read the content, and some of it might be good! Choosing the right font style and format for your online store will already put you ahead of the competition and for something so easy, you would think that everyone would do it right!

4. KISS
Keep it simple! The simpler it is for consumers to find the products on your site, the easier it is for them to purchase something, the better.

Having easy to navigate categories and sub-categories will make your site much more simple to browse. I have seen on some great sites that keep their navigation all on the left or the right. I have seen others that have those categories on the left or right, but then sub-category on the main screen to narrow down your results.

5. Shopping Cart/Checkout
If you take your customers through a long and lengthy checkout process, they may just up and leave half way through. I have seen checkouts with large forms to fill out, multiple pages to go through and pages upon pages of suggested products to add to my shopping cart before I can even enter my credit card details.

Keep this in mind, your customer has already been on your site for a while debating on the right product to buy, and then you hit them with a lengthy checkout process. Don't do it! If you want your customers to register, and get a login for a My Account area, please do so! But do it AFTER they purchase or give them the option during the checkout process to choose to do that right from the start.

6. Mobile Shopping
Many shoppers use their smartphones or tablets to shop online. But still many online stores aren't smartphone or tablet compatible. So make sure that your site is small screen friendly with a high resolution, or get a mobile site specifically for your mobile shoppers by choosing a responsive site that changes based on the users screen size.

7. Personal Opinions
Sad to say, but it's true, there are retailers online that fill their stores with quotes, images and comments about how they feel about religion, politics, philosophy, and other topics.They are treating their online store like a personal blog. Your online store is not a place to vent or to push your beliefs on others. Your store is intended to make sales, so you should keep it all about the products.
