What We Are Thankful for This Year

As we celebrate Thanksgiving we would like to share with you what we are thankful for this year at Pure-Ecommerce.

By: Catherine Perry

This is the week when we try to slow down just a bit before the holiday onslaught of shopping, cooking, entertaining, and partying. Yes, this week we slow it down and become mindful. We become mindful and give tributes of thanks to people in our lives who are blessings to us.  We say thanks for the simple things we have that we don’t want to take for granted. Our thoughts turn to thankfulness and gratefulness for what we have.
At Pure-Ecommerce we are doing the same, slowing down a bit to reflect on all of our blessings. We wanted to share with you some of what we are thankful for this year.
We are thankful for the awesome individuals who work as a team at Pure-Ecommerce, providing top-notch ecommerce websites and consultation to our clients. Our team is spread throughout the U.S., Canada and the Philippines . We recognize that our success as a first-class ecommerce service is only as good as the people who provide that service. We invite you to visit the “Meet the Team” page on our website for the name and role of each person—both behind the scenes and on the front line–who makes Pure-Ecommerce a leader in developing ecommerce websites.

Our Design Team

Our design team is made up of creative designers, knowledgable technicians and imaginative developers who are passionaate about developing our outstanding ecommerce businesses. They take care and pride in the development of marketable websites that have beautiful designs and are user-friendly. This team of talented individuals work very well together to ensure we are producing the best websites and giving our clients outstanding service as they continue to grow their business. They want to ensure our carts have user-friendly technology for a pleasant shopping experience for online shoppers, as well as, a easy to manage backend for our clients.

Our Project Managers

Our team of project managers enjoys working with clients and new websites to find just the right products for each niche market. They are detail oriented in loading products onto the websites and completing the critical information for each item. They assist our clients with questions about vendors and products, as well as, a great support as clients work through our 10 step process.

Our Consultants

One of the aspects of our business that makes us unique is our consulting program. We don’t just sell you a website and then leave it up to you to figure it out. Our 10-step instructional program is one of the best in the ecommerce industry. That is because our consultants know their areas of expertise and are good at teaching. They “hold the hands” of our clients as they work through the learning process. They truly care about getting a client off to the right start—a start that sets the client up for success. Our team of consultants work very hard to encourage our clients as they learn how to set up, run and market their business in the online marketplace.

Our Management

We are thankful for our management and administrative team who is diligently working behind the scenes on making sure Pure-Ecommerce runs smoothly and has a great brand.
We are thankful for our CEO, Jeff Varner. He has had the task of taking over the reins in setting our direction and going forward with our growth in the last couple of years. Our founder, Jennifer Varner, passed away in 2016 after a long and valiant battle with cancer. She had formed the company with a clear vision of what Pure-Ecommerce stands for and is built upon. We are so thankful for Jen and the legacy that she has left us all.

Our Clients!

Finally, we are extremely thankful for our outstanding clients.  We appreciate each of you and want your business to be successful. Our wish is only the best for you.

Holiday Dates You Need to Know For Your Ecommerce Business

The holiday shopping season is here and you do not want to miss a thing – Mark your calendars with the important dates we outlined below!

By: Catherine Perry

There is no debating it—we are in the holiday shopping season already! It seems to start earlier every year, doesn’t it? With Thanksgiving right around the corner, it means that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are fast approaching. We know you are ready for the time of year when consumerism is at its highest. And, if you aren’t, get to it pronto!
We have given you the projections for this year’s holiday season in other blogs, but just in case you missed them, here they are again. It’s going to be big! According to Marketingland, reporting NetElixir’s tabulations of nine years of aggregate data from mid-sized and large online retailers in their article “2017’s Holiday E-commerce Sales Projected to Grow 10% Over Last Year’s Holiday Season,” the forecast is for this year’s holiday e-commerce sales to see a 10% year-over-year growth rate. That is just for e-commerce, folks.
In terms of all of retail, Marketingland forecasts consumer spending over Black Friday weekend to grow by 47% from the same period in 2016. This article cites RetailMeNot’s survey data that shows consumers planning to spend an average of $743 during the weekend that runs from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. And, another interesting statement to note in this article is that “Cyber Monday has become even bigger than Black Friday in terms of online sales.”  That’s you, Mr. and Ms. E-commerce Owner!
Another number projected for this holiday season comes from www.retail.emarketer.com. They report “U.S. retail e-commerce sales are expected to jump 16.6% during the 2017 holiday season, driven by increases in mobile commerce” and online shopping trends.
