do we integrate e-mail and a interactive website
into our day to day operations? Can we improve customer &
supplier communications while streamlining our sales order cycle via the internet? Should I inventory items or use a blind drop
How do I
drive targeted traffic to my web pages, as junk traffic sheisters are everywhere seeking
to drain my Advertising budget? Do I invest in Googles "Adwords" keyword PPCSE
click traffic or use Yahoo's Overture and other lesser known pay per click search engines.
we convert our "old model clients", who still are still billed on open
account terms basis, to our new e-commerce model with online quotes and ordering? Is their
shopping carts that display both retail and multi-level dealer pricing automatically?
What is the main purpose of the "website"? -Is it to allow for a corporate web-presence to project our image, and allow new
and existing customers 24 hr. access to information on our manufacturing capabilities? Are we willing and prepared to actually
conduct business and generate revenues via the internet, and expand our customer base
nationwide and abroad ? What information do we wish to pass on to this audience with
e-mailed newsletters to turn them into repeat customers?
we put our paper catalog online and actually provide 3D and zoom detail views of our
product lines? Can we tag available inventory quantities to the shopping cart to eliminate
"Out of Stock" sales?
target market are we seeking to attract to our website, and what is the proper way to
accomplish this via SEO/SEM? (Search
Engine Marketing and page Optimization. Can affiliate marketing work for me to increase my
sites conversion ratio and sales volume? How can we incorporate a database into our web
site or use one to generate a e-catalog complete with product photos?
benefit from e-commerce solutions for our existing vendors and customers, and attract new
business? Is new customer acquisition costs online cheaper then offline?
benefits can be derived to each of our operating departments by web-enabling our company?
Having a web presence is a given today but my business is local. Can I target local
customers and direct them to my business effectively?
do we simplify our sales cycle, while expanding our "order fulfillment" and
settlement procedures to increase cash flow to more of our customer base? Does IMS have
ecommerce customers willing to share their success stories? We sure do. See www.EcomCity.com/Holdup.htm for an example
client who has grown from 60 reseller stores to over 2100 since we re-designed their web
site for selling their Patented HoldUp Suspenders and now Sloops Blue jeans. They are the
highest converting product merchant on the internet averaging 1 sale per every 20 visitors
to the pages for over 5 years.
internet/Intranet give us a competitive advantage when dealing with our largest accounts?
Can we securely share documents, drawings, price lists and job quotations via our web
we in tune with our industry and supplier/customer base by promoting our company via a
website? We sure don't want to alienate our existing Brick-n-Mortar business with
aggressive online marketing?
we entertain contractual commitments with other web sites through "Affiliate
Marketing" programs? Cater to foreign customers and seek this type of business ? (margins on international trade
accounts are often double stateside accounts, but often require more front office, exporting partners and legal work to meet the new
requirements and compliances.)
do we advertise our website to our targeted audience when we have a limited budget?
your website structure allow for easy online publishing by your own non programming staff
once completed? Does IMS support tools like Microsoft Frontpage and simple shopping cart
hosting accounts that will allow us to take over day to day site upgrades and changes? Do
we have the tools and the time to work The NET...or can we contract for your expertise on
a monthly, or as needed basis?
the monthly expenses associated with hosting our site on a Secure Hosted server if we
decide to launch a web site? Surprise -surprise as most of our clients host their sites
for under 20.00/month and spend 30.00/month if they want a fully function shopping cart
and e-catalog program. You can also consider a shop within a Mall like EcomCity, Amazon or
Yahoo storefronts to auguement your web site traffic.
will handle the e-mail flow within our organization, once our customers and suppliers find
out we are web-enabled? I see everything from "Live-Help" programs and 800#'s
all over the net. Do these necessarily increase my employee count or can the web site
actually reduce the amount of customer help phone time?
