Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) July 09, 2013
Ann Marie Bauman has literally made a name for herself. 25 years ago she set out on a quest to provide her customers with the finest European inspired gifts by opening up a specialty retail store – Ann Marie's. Today, AnnMarie.com is one of the largest purveyors of European pottery, glassware and gourmet items, but getting to that point took plenty of hard work and dedication. “We launched our eCommerce store 15 years ago and the Internet has given our small business the opportunity to expand beyond our shop borders,” Ann Marie said. “ Retail can be a dull business after a while, but with the Internet constantly changing, it made our online venture exciting and there's always something new to learn.”
The changing nature of the Internet is a contributing factor to what takes up most of the time during her busy day. “There's a lot of marketing involved with getting customers to our site: keyword research, on-site search engine optimization, email marketing and pay-per-click advertising to name a few,” Ann Marie says. “It's much easier to coordinate the shipping of orders and manage inventory than it is to market a website.”
Ann Marie's marketing efforts have paid off and she credits them with one of her greatest accomplishments. “We've been able to build up a base of customers that are loyal to the Ann Marie brand by making our website a close reflection of our retail store and the 'Ann Marie Lifestyle' that we've been able to create with our products, and we're extra thrilled to announce our just released gift and wedding registry on the 3dcart Shopping Cart Software platform.”
