My friend Roland sells football memorabilia. Last year, Roland signed up to do a holiday sale at a local community center. When he got the venue, he found that none of the prospective customers wanted his products. The event had been advertised as a ‘handicraft’ show, featuring hand knit baby sweaters, handmade aprons, blown glass tree ornaments, etc. Roland didn’t sell any football memorabilia that day
Why am I telling you this story? To prove the adage, ‘Know your audience’. That adage applies to any kind of customer, including an eCommerce client! If you are launching, migrating or upgrading an eCommerce site, you must design a site to attract and retain your target audience. It is important to understand more than the technical aspects of the site. Yes, performance, architecture and mobility is crucial but if you don’t know your target customers, their buying behavior and preferences, you will not get the results you want.
What do you want in a Content Management System (CMS)? Content Management used to be reserved for document management and organization of folders but today, CMS Development can be used to organize sections of eCommerce sites, to reach out and leverage social media sites, to organize calendars, schedules and tasks or events on mobile devices, to serve communities and associations and support collaborative tasks, to provide online training and education, to organize blogs, forums, chats, polls, surveys, to establish and maintain a corporate or intranet portal and…well, you get the idea! There are lots of CMS Development frameworks and solutions out there (Liferay, Drupal, dotCMS, JBoss, Joomla, Microsoft SharePoint, WordPress and Umbraco, to name a few).
To compete, you have to create a site that ensures appropriate competition in the local, regional, domestic and global markets. Today, CMS Development goes beyond file management and shared workflow. Content Management Systems can promote and sell products and services, help you share business–to–business and consumer information, and provide a productive, collaborative environment.
Whether your business is large or small, you need a web presence. You may integrate information from sales systems, HR, a product specification data base or other data repository. You may need team collaboration across country or state boundaries. It’s imperative that your portal, corporate site, eCommerce or CMS site satisfies customers, employees, suppliers, partners and stakeholders.
Yes, web marketing and web sales and advertising are exploding! But, customers still need to feel the local impact of products and services. They need to know that you have a handle on the local market. You speak their language, you understand their needs, and you do business in a way that meets their requirements.
