However, as many eCommerce website administrators can attest, there comes a point where technical, dedicated, eCommerce hands are needed.

When choosing a software to develop your eCommerce store the options can seem overwhelming and daunting at first. Some options are hosted by the provider, and others must be hosted on your own hardware, and their costs range from free to hundreds of dollars a month. Our preference continues to be Magento for its robust features and functionality that empower any business to grow their online revenue.


The internet is the world’s largest retail space and it is instantly accessible from the comfort of your own home. This convenience is possible because today’s eCommerce stores are powered by dynamic and detailed content management systems (CMSs) that categorize, itemize, and price every product available for purchase. eCommerce CMSs make a store’s inventory accessible and searchable by anyone through a web browser which opens up a new avenue for interested customers, and their dollars, to swing by.


2014 will forever be remembered as the year eCommerce sales growth overtook retail sales growth in the United States. More and more people are comfortable purchasing items online and they’re doing so more often than ever before. If you’re in the business of eCommerce get ahead of the changing landscape and resolve to improve your online conversions in 2015 with a few key optimizations.

Mobile is becoming an increasingly important driver of growth in ecommerce. Currently, the mobile commerce market size is estimated at 40 billion USD. Mobile visits account for one-third of the traffic on top ecommerce sites. Retail outlets are also getting more and more visitors who do their research using mobile before visiting or during shopping.


The holiday shopping season is upon us and some of the best eCommerce sites are already rolling out their holiday marketing strategy aimed at bringing customers to their store and through their checkout process. Last year’s biggest eCommerce day, Cyber Monday, saw $1.735 billion dollars change hands from desktop computer users to eCommerce stores - an 18% increase from the year before.
