Why don't you give your products a shop window that not only spans the local area, but also gives you the ability to sell them on a national and even international level?
If you've already got shop premises, you sell can your products to a considerably wider audience by setting up an online shop. Alternatively, if you're thinking about a new venture, an online shop can offer savings in set-up and operational costs.
With an ecommerce web site, your business is in effect open 24 hours a days, 7 days a week - and small companies have the opportunity to compete with larger businesses. The Internet provides a level playing field where SME's can effectively compete with large corporates.
Despite all the benefits and cost advantages to be made by having an online shop, there are also potential pitfalls. A reputable web design company can guide you through the process, taking into consideration elements such as design of the site, online payment options and the legal requirements of distance selling.
