Advertising and retailing online is becoming far more cost-effective than opening up shop on the high street
(PRWEB UK) 13 November 2011
Positive Web Design has been enjoying growing success since the division’s inception earlier in the year but has recently announced an increase in eCommerce-related enquiries of over 200%. The statistic, which was collated during October, shows a significant jump in the number of businesses asking for quotes for the creation and build of their online shopping platforms.
In this statement, Peter Andrease, Head Of Web Design at the firm, explains why more and more people are investing heavily in their eCommerce sites rather than sticking to traditional offline selling methods and marketing:
“We think that advertising and retailing online is becoming far more cost-effective than opening up shop on the high street. In our experience, there are minimal rent fees, fewer labour costs and better exposure to the right kinds of audiences.”
Many of these individuals are searching for a web design agency that is capable of building a completely new site from scratch. Interestingly, however, Positive Web Design is also catering to a large amount of requests for smaller-scale services such as copywriting, blog integration, content management system setup and on-going hosting, as well as more subjective projects like branding and logo creation.
Bespoke eCommerce website development is a service that is both efficient and affordable from the team at this company. Prices vary depending on the requirements of the website, but alongside the increase in enquiries Positive Web Design has also noticed a willingness in consumers to spend more money to ensure a smooth, hassle-free launch for their web store. In short, it seems that business owners simply want to get their sites up and running as soon as possible. Peter attributes this trend to the “increasing rivalry between online firms” and their “desire to stay ahead of the competition”.
