E-commerce tips for SMEs from Trevor Ginn

Econsultancy has just published 'Selling online: a how to guide for small businesses', which provides a step by step guide for SMEs. 

The report was written by entrepreneur and e-commerce consultant Trevor Ginn, who founded online retailer Hello Baby in 2007. 

I've been speaking to Trevor about the report, and his e-commerce tips for small businesses...


20 things to think about when choosing an agency

Supplier selection is a key determining factor as to whether or not your e-commerce or web project will ultimately prove to be successful or not. While you may not be hugely knowledgeable in this space, you still need to adopt the same level of due diligence you would were you appointing a supplier to help with any other part of your business.

We recently published a guide for internet professionals called 'Delivering Successful E-commerce Projects', authored by Martin Newman, and he listed 20 recommendations to help choose an agency or technology vendor.

Many of these tips are relevant for all kinds of internet projects, and not just e-commerce sites, and they're well worth a read whether you work on the client-side or agency-side, to figure out what to look for. Try asking yourself these questions next time you're hunting around for a new supplier...


E-commerce tips: 13 recommendations for multichannel integration

Web project management can be a challenge for the most experienced project managers, much less for relative newcomers, and when e-commerce is involved, the stakes are that much higher. 

With this in mind we recently commissioned e-commerce expert Martin Newman to compile a best practice report to help steer you down the right path, called 'Delivering Successful E-commerce Projects'. It has more than 400 individual recommendations and is a terrific investment for anybody working in this area (as with all of our research, it is priced at just £150 / $215, or is free for Econsultancy subscribers).

The report focuses on client-side challenges, supplier challenges, and joint challenges. I thought I'd give you a taste of what's contained within the guide by publishing a few extracts. Here's the first one, which focuses on multichannel integration.
