With an e-commerce website, visitors can purchase products or services through your site, process payments and even receive confirmation and receipts.
E-commerce websites offer a wide range of reporting that tells you all about the transactions that have taken place. Integrate Google Analytics to your e-commerce website and you can track everything from which audiences are purchasing the most from your site, to which pages on your website are leading them to purchase. You might want to sell a product, like custom built guitars (droool), or a service, like an hour long consultation.
Monthly subscriptions and membership websites can also be a great way to get people hooked on your knowledge and get you receiving recurring payments. Knowledge is power!
E-commerce websites open your business up to far wider-reaching opportunities as you can transact with people regardless of time or location - 24/7 selling, baby!
