Pick Your Path – Love What You Do! Start Your Own Ecommerce Business

Are you ready to start  your own ecommerce business? Then you should explore your options to decide whether a ready-made or custom design ecommerce business is the best fit for you!

By: Catherine Perry

You see many of the benefits in having your own ecommerce website business such as being the decision-maker, having flexibility in your schedule, and being able to work from anywhere. Most importantly, being an ecommerce owner can mean having a business that you love—one that you are passionate about, one that energizes you every day, one that supplies you with an internal feeling of fulfillment! When you pick your path, you can love what you do!
When purchasing an internet  business for sale, one of the first decisions you’ll need to make is whether to create a custom design ecommerce business or purchase an ecommerce business that is ready-made with a design, as well as, set up with the initial vendors and products all ready loaded. Either way, Pure-Ecommerce has a team of experts who have the knowledge and experience you need behind you. Let us help! In this blog, we’re going to give you information about both options. Whether you are thinking about going custom or ready-made as we want to help you decide the best option for you.

Which Industry And Market Do You Want To Be In? 

The first step in purchasing an ecommerce business is to know which industry and market you want to work in. This is often the most challenging part of starting a new online business. Is there an industry that you have passion for—pets, furniture, children, health and nutrition? Research the viability of the industry and market–especially if it is a niche market and especially if you’re thinking of creating a custom website.
You may already have a product you have researched and have a strong interest in selling. Or, it may be that you have several products of interest and need to do more research to see which one you want to sell. It should be an industry that has strong growth numbers and good profit margins.

Here are some differences between building a custom site and buying a “ready-made” site as related to the industry and market:
Ready-Made: Purchasing a site that is “ready-made” allows you to start much more quickly than building a custom site. In buying a ready-made business, you get started with training and are able to go “live” sooner than with a custom site. But, even though working with Pure-Ecommerce in purchasing a ready-made site makes the process quicker, you still need to spend time researching the industry and market. This gives you the knowledge you need to work in that market.
Custom: Building a Custom design website from scratch allows you to incorporate your ideas about the design of the site and the products you will offer. After you research the industry and market in which you are interested, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge you need to make a decision on the industry. Then you work with designers like the ones at Pure-Ecommerce to build the site.

What Do You Want The Design Of The Website To Look Like?

A website design that works for the industry and market you have selected is very important. If you are creative and already have ideas about the look and the organization of the site, then you may want to consider a custom-built site.  You can truly have a sense of ownership by taking a major part in the building of your ecommerce business. At Pure-Ecommerce, you work with an experienced designer to build a website that reflects your ideas. This is a collaborative process between you and the web designing team.
However, if you don’t have the creative inspiration for the design of a website, then purchasing a ready-made site is the best option for you. All the upfront work has been done! Pure-Ecommerce’s expert designers use their wealth of experience and knowledge when they create ecommerce businesses that are ready-made. By eliminating the time required in creating a website, you are able to go “live” a bit quicker. No matter which route you choose you want to ensure your website has a 100% responsive design so your customers will have a great experience no matter if they are shopping from their PC, tablet or smartphone.

Here are some differences between building a custom site and buying a “ready-made” site in terms of design:
Ready-Made: When you purchase a site that is ready to go, the design and organization of the site is already done. You simply pick one that you like, go through your training, and go “live.”
Custom: When you build a custom site, you collaborate with the design team on the look and organization of your site. You’re involved during the entire process.

How Will You Select The Products And Vendors? 

The next task is the selection of the products to offer and the vendors who supply those products.  You will need to do some research on vendors in the event that drop ship vendors are not available for the type of products you want. One of the last issues you want to deal with is not being able to find vendors to work with!
When you purchase a ready-made ecommerce business with Pure-Ecommerce, the selection of drop ship vendors has already been done for you. Our websites are loaded with a large number of products that serve as a strong foundation in the beginning of your business. You always start with a few vendors when you purchase an ecommerce business from Pure-Ecommerce. This is incredibly helpful in your ability to get going quickly.
Ready-Made: When you purchase a site that is ready to go, the initial work has been done by the project teams to have products loaded in the beginning.
Custom: When you build a custom site, you are actively involved in researching and selecting your vendors and products.

Which Is Right For You–Custom Or Ready-Made?

In helping you decide on whether to build a custom site or purchase one that is ready-made, we put together a table that shows possible pros and cons. It is a big decision and we want to help you any way we can to make the right one for you!  When you pick your path and love what you do, success is almost a given!

What Makes Pure-Ecommerce Different?

Pure-Ecommerce-What-Makes-Pure-Ecommerce-Different-Blog

Finding the right consulting team to help you start an ecommerce business is crucial. That’s why we wanted to share with you how we are different and why you should choose to work with our team!

By: Catherine Perry

If you’re thinking about purchasing an ecommerce business, you have many choices available from which to shop. There are many companies that provide either a brand new business or an existing business for purchase. You will find many products and business industries represented. It can be a bit overwhelming, we know. This is why we wanted to explain how Pure-Ecommerce distinguishes itself among other companies that create ecommerce websites.

Here are some of the questions you probably have and will need to answer when choosing a company to purchase an ecommerce site from:

  • Should you purchase a business that has just been created and has no sales history? Or, should you purchase one that has been operating and has some history? There are pros and cons to both, and your decision may rest on your own preference and/or your budget.
  • Which industry should you choose? Should you purchase a site that is pet products, or one that is jewelry, or one that is medical supplies? What industry are you passionate about? Which industries you think are best poised for growth? You have many decisions to make.
  • Do you feel you need support to help you learn all aspects of the business—back end platform, merchant services, product inventory, search engine optimization, marketing? If this will be a new venture for you and you have no previous experience owning an ecommerce website, you may feel like a “fish out of water” with the back-end of the business, the inventory side of the business, marketing through social media, and so on. How will you quickly learn these aspects of the ecommerce business? Having support through the initial phases of getting a business up and running could make all the difference and be critically important for you.
We at Pure-Ecommerce provide a unique approach of offering quality, brand new online business opportunities with exceptional service after the sale. As you shop around, you won’t find this level of service with other companies. Here are five reasons why Pure-Ecommerce is different from the majority of companies that are selling ecommerce businesses.

Pure-Ecommerce-Ready-made-Custom-WebsitesReason #1: Choice of Ready-Made or Custom Websites

At Pure-Ecommerce you can choose to purchase one of our ready-made“business-in-a-box” websites or work with us to design a custom site.
We excel in creating ready-made internet businesses that are designed with branding and marketing in mind, so you don’t have to be involved in this process if you don’t want to–you just shop through our sites that are already created with inventory loaded for drop-shipping. The initial work has been done for you so that all you need to do is get the business operating! We create beautiful websites with domain names and site names that have search engine optimization as a focus, which is very important in creating a brand for your business. Our design specialists have a depth of experience in knowing what will be a great brand so that you are able to market and get noticed by the search engines.
But, as another option, if you want to drive the design process because you have great ideas, you can! Our designers work with you to create a custom design website that you develop. You provide the inspiration and we provide the technical skill to bring it together. We offer four different packages to fit the needs of budding entrepreneurs to develop their dream business.

Pure-Ecommerce-Project-ManagersReason #2: Project Manager

Whether you choose the ready-made or custom route you will have a project manager to assist you. This is because we think it is important to have a single contact person you can work with during our process. We want to ensure your website’s layout fits the needs of your customer. Plus, have the inventory loaded that is in good order. Our project managers have experience in taking the lead role and will be there to help guide you as you start your new website.  With Pure-Ecommerce, you have that one person, the project manager, who you know and can rely on to make sure you have the guidance to find the answers to your questions.

Reason #3: 10-Step Training ProgramPure-Ecommerce-10-Step-Process

Our goal at Pure-Ecommerce is for you to have a successful ecommerce business. When you start a new job, there is a period of time where you’re learning what is involved and how to do it. Purchasing an ecommerce website is no different. Pure-Ecommerce knows that the learning curve can add time to getting the site operating–and you want that site up as quickly as possible! Even if you’ve previously owned a site or sites, there is still a bit to learn with a new platform.
So, to fill this learning gap, we designed a 10-step training program that is invaluable to you as a new owner. Our training program starts with the basics and goes through all of the critical aspects of your business, covering everything from the initial task of getting a business license through setting up merchant services and PayPal, on to performing search engine optimization (SEO), marketing through social media and blogging, setting up QuickBooks, and finally advertising on search engines.
The training program is provided in written form through our eLearning Library. After you read the material for a step then you have time on the phone with a consultant for that step. We believe that reading and then getting reinforcement from our “teachers” is the best way for you to learn each aspect of the running your business. Our consultants have experience and skills in the steps  they work on with you. They become both a teacher and a coach to help you if you are struggling in a certain area. This availability to you is invaluable to your success and this makes Pure-Ecommerce unique. The Pure-Ecommerce team is here to help “cheer” you on and to give you to the tools you need; you just need the drive, passion and put in the hard work to make your business work for you!

Pure-Ecommerce-ConsultingReason #4: Consultants Available for Help

So, after you go through a step-by-step training then you’re “ready” to perform all the many tasks you have as the owner of a brand new ecommerce business…right? Well, maybe you are, but maybe you aren’t. Once you actually start the work, you will probably have additional questions. And sometimes you just need to have confirmation that you are doing something correctly. Pure-Ecommerce recognizes this as another gap in other companies because they don’t offer services that ensures you’re set to be successful in this venture.
We provide 40 hours of step-by-step ecommerce consulting when you purchase a ready-made internet business or our custom packages #3 or #4. This time gives you extra coaching that you may need so you don’t feel like you are out in the deep waters along with no support. Other companies who sell websites don’t offer this kind of availability. Most of our clients don’t use the entire 40 hours of consulting time that is included. they are up and running with much less coaching. But, again, this is a part of the service after the sale that we at Pure-Ecommerce provide.

Reason #5: Long HistoryPure-Ecommerce-Experience

Pure-Ecommerce has ten years in the ecommerce website development business. When you purchase a site from us, you get our depth of experience. You also get the piece of mind that we are providing our clients with a top-quality website.

We are here to help budding entrepreneurs bring their vision of owning their own business to life.
