What is e-Commerce and how it works?
E-Commerce has become one of the most profitable ways to start a business and generate revenue without large investments. With the development of technology, it is easier to reach potential customers around the world. From the smallest companies to the largest, almost all types of business put emphasis on e-Commerce. If you are also thinking about selling your products and services and making money, this form of business can be the perfect choice.
E-Commerce also called electronic commerce is the process of buying and selling products or services, making money transfers and sending data via an electronic medium (Internet). In short, they are online commercial transactions. It allows people to lead business without distance and time barriers. This means that every time you buy and sell something over the internet, you get involved in e-commerce.
There are different types of e-commerce business options that you can choose based on your preferences, capital and online business model. Different techniques and strategies are available for each type of company. The entire online business is based on similar principles as the offline retail business. Processes bounded to the eCommerce industry can be divided into three main departments such as: taking orders, processing information about the order and the final stage, i.e. shipping.
Creating a good online store can bring trouble if we have no idea about eCommerce rules and what benefits we can achieve with them. Researching and understanding the guidelines required to properly implement an e-business plan is a key part of success in building online stores.
E-commerce companies are also divided into who the company sells its products to. It is often assumed that all items are sold to consumers, this is not always like that. Sometimes he is a different company.
There are three main categories that e-commerce companies sell their products or services:
B2B: It means Business-to-Business. E-commerce companies selling physical, digital products or services to other companies belong to this category. For example, this may include manufacturers or suppliers who provide materials or products to other companies.
B2C: It means Business-to-Consumer. E-commerce companies selling physical, digital products or services to consumers belong to this category. This includes retailers or e-commerce sellers who sell products to the final consumer.
B2G: It means Business-to-Government. E-commerce companies that sell physical, digital products or services to government institutions or agencies belong to this category.
While most companies usually sell their products to one of these categories, e-commerce companies can sell products to more than one category of consumers. It is important for e-commerce companies to understand who their main receivers are. This affects important decisions, such as marketing, branding and shipping procedures.
SEO (Code Optimization, URLs, Indexing, Information Architecture, On-Site, Off-Site)
SEO is, in short, website optimization for search engines. Exactly this is a continuous process of improving the visibility and ranking of the website in the free search engine results presented on Google and other search engines. The complex algorithm determines how search results are displayed for any search term or phrase. Although the exact algorithm is a very well keep secret, many important aspects and components of this algorithm are known, which are the elements that SEO focuses on.
Year by year SEO is more popular due to increasing competition for search engine rankings. Internet business owners often rely on search engines in order to generate traffic on their websites, which in turn increases the chances of visitors becoming customers. Searching for higher rankings has given birth to the search engine optimization or SEO industry, which covers a whole spectrum of techniques to improve website ranking.
One of the main areas of search engine optimization and probably the most important is the optimization of the HTML code which actually creates the website. Regardless of any other effort being made to improve search engine ranking, if search robots are unable to compass effectively and index your site, the website will not get a good position in ranking.
Most websites contain a header with some navigation or menu. Often, this header and menu navigation will consist of a series of images held in place by an HTML table. While this is pretty good for humans, search engine crawlers only see images without text content. They can follow links from images, but without anchor text they won’t get the weight of a text link with the appropriate anchor text. Additionally, the amount of code needed to create an HTML table and series of menu images is huge and will move the real content of our site down the code. Some search engines assume that the further the page is in the code, the less important it is.
Index is another name for the database used by the search engine. The indexes contain information about all websites that Google (or any other search engine) could find. If your site is not in the search index, users will not be able to find it.
It is the source data from the Google index that ultimately determines the value of various search words and keywords. Search engines apply their algorithms to available data and measure the frequency of diverse factors under different conditions that are related to each other and so on. The index includes not only URLs but all content, including texts, images, videos and basically everything in the HTML of the URL.
The information collected from this analysis returns to the Google algorithm to provide a new assessment of the index data, which tries to understand which content best meets the intended intentions of the user. Google search results or rankings are then calculated based on this content rating.
Each country has slightly different ranking factors. In particular, the search data for each keyword is unique for each national index. Without this data, you cannot base SEO and content marketing decisions on actual user behavior.
The local search engine index follows the same principle as the country index, only at regional or city level. Local indexes are important mainly for local searches services or places, because they allow you to return information specific to your location.
The new index that has been operated since 2018, is the mobile index. This means that basic Google index information will come from indexing mobile versions of websites, and the computer index will be adapted.
Information architecture is an organization of a website thanks to it can be easily supports by people and search engines. This includes, but is not limited to, a website, including top navigation menu, sidebar navigation menu, page structure, object placement, outline and content flow or CTA. When information architecture and SEO work well together, they allow the user to find a solution to their problem or piece of content that meets their intention.
Organizing your site’s data and content affects to many elements of your business’s design. The first of these is usability, i.e. the approach to the site in terms of the user. You need to create a logical information architecture which will make sense to users. In addition to users, we must consider the search engine and rankings, which are responsible for where our website is displayed.
The last element is also the conversion approach. Information architecture should guide the user through the conversion process, starting with a wide, initial offer and consistently moving the user to the next step in the purchase process.
Important things that we should take care of are such things as URL architecture, choosing good keywords and search phrases as well as the appearance of the page for the mobile version.
On-Page refers to both the content and the HTML source code of the page, which can be optimized, as opposed to Off-Page, which refers to links and other external signals. This includes all aspects of the website which, when added, will improve the ranking in search results.
Things which are part of On-Page SEO:
- Meta tags – there are a pieces of text describing the content of the page. They do not appear on the page itself, but in the page code. Meta tags are content descriptors that help you search information about a website.
- Header tags – are tags used to create headers. The most important tag is the <h1> header tag and it will usually be the title of the post. Targeting tags have a hierarchy from top <h1> to <h6>.
- URL – analyzing the length of URLs, it was found that shorter URLs tend to rank better. Additionally, it’s worth creating URLs that users can understand without adjunctive characters.
- User friendly content. The stuff should clearly explain what product or service you offer, or the accurate topic of your blog. Content should contain keywords, and value include the use of keywords and writing valuable texts, while at the same time pleasing the search engines. This is the foundation of SEO and the concerting majority of your website.
- Internal and external links. Links are still very important in SEO. Earning external links from high-quality sources and authority pages strengthens the domain, and connecting internally on the site benefits the user and improves SEO. External links, as the name suggests, are links from other pages to our site, and internal links are links from our site that redirect to other subpages of our site. The advantage of internal links is that you can give your receivers further options to stay on your site. The more commitment to relevant pages, the more Google draws attention. It is true that placing links in every sentence is not good, but a few links on one subpage are good for her.
- Image optimization. When you add images to a page, this is beneficial to the user. But you can also help your SEO strategy by optimizing your image. Set your best-targeted keyword to alternative text and create a title that is unique but remains relevant to the image. The presented image of this article has a unique title and alternative text for this post.
- Website responsiveness. For several years the website should be mobile-friendly and responsive. Responsiveness is the adaptation of the page to devices and their screens so that the page looks legible on all devices. Responsive websites provide the same experience with your brand, regardless of the device they use.
- Page speed. In today’s technology age, speed is essential. We don’t want to wait. If the page doesn’t load immediately, we’ll find another page to do it. Almost half of all mobile users will leave the site if it doesn’t load within 3 seconds.
Off-page SEO is the activity of brand optimization on the Internet and outside of it by using content or links to provide optimal convenience for robots and crawlers. This usually leads to a gradual increase in the number of positive mentions of the brand, search rankings, traffic to your site and conversions.
High-quality content which you can position in search engines, but thanks to several excellent, relevant websites that contain links to this content, you increase the chance that you will finish a few places higher. The same goes for building a brand and building trust. This happens not only on your site, but primarily outside of it. Reviews, for example, can cause or break a business. You need them, but most often they appear on external sites. These are all factors that contribute to your rankings.
Not only the high ranking of the search term is important, but also trust and a sense of authority. You must look for the best search result, not only in technical and content terms, but also in reality. Popularity, quality and relevance are all.
Link building, i.e. creating links is the process of obtaining hyperlinks from other websites on your own. A hyperlink (usually called a link) is a way to navigate between pages on the Internet. Search engines use links to search the web. Link building is important because it is a very significant factor in the ranking of Google sites.
To understand the meaning of link building, it’s important to first construe the basics of link creation, how search engines see links and what they can interpret from them.
The quality of links is also determined by authority within the domain. When it comes to links, local authority matters. These are such indicators as Page Authority and Domain Authority. Page Authority is an indicator which represents the probability that a website will have a high search rank. Domain Authority is an indicator which reflects the likelihood that the entire site (set of all pages to be indexed) will have a good search position. The higher the score, the better. But the importance of this site also counts.
SEM and Paid Search
SEM is search engine marketing. As is well known today, SEM only describes the financed part of search engine marketing. SEM (Search Engine Marketing) refers to paid ads on search results pages. The most commonly used SEM platform is Google Adwords and it works in such a way that website owners pay Google directly, so that the advertisement for the site is placed higher in search engines for search terms.
Paid searches themselves apply to every search process where results are dictated by payment from advertisers.
However, many people associate the term “paid search” only with pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, a specific type of business relationship in which advertisers pay for search engines or other web hosts after they click on ads, which causes the unit encourages to display commercials as search results.
In the internet industry, it means pursuing a goal. It can be finalizing the transaction, filling out the form by visitors or acquiring new users on the site. For each specialty it will mean a different activity.
The conversion rate plays an important role here. It means the effect of website administrators’ efforts to achieve specific behavior on the part of the user. Thanks to it, it is easy to verify the steps taken in connection with operating the website. These include relevance of advertising campaigns, attractiveness against the competition, or determining the visibility of the page in Google search engine.
It is determined based on the ratio of the number of conversions to the number of users who visited the website.
It is always worth looking at conversion and optimizing it. This will help streamline site management activities and save time.
The so-called content marketing, consisting in the regular creation and delivery of attractive content, responding to the needs of recipients. It is based on building long-term relationships with the user.
Content marketing takes the form of content published on the Internet, such as articles, webinars, guides, podcasts, etc., thanks to which both the company and the potential customer benefit. Its purpose is to persuade recipients to disseminate information about a given company or its services. To achieve this plan, content marketing specialists use various techniques to reach customers. The most popular media channels include forums and social media such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and industry blogs which allow you to quickly distribute marketing content.

The most important indicators which evaluate the results of email marketing are OR (open rate), so how many users have opened the message and CTR (click-through rate), so the percentage of customers who opened the message by clicking on its content.
In Poland 2018. email marketing accounted for almost 3% of the total online advertising market.

The consumer is a commercial relationship aimed at exchanging services, products or information based on the sales relationship between two private entities (e.g. Internet users). Online auctions are a perfect example of C2C, including popular Allegro platform.
The success of an online auction site depends greatly on six variables: interactivity, product offerings, trust level, growth and adoption rate, network, engagement level and payment options. Interaction between users is crucial, so websites must be accessible and easy to navigate. What’s more, having a number of different sellers, buyers and suppliers will guarantee an increase in the level of interactivity. The level of trust also plays an important role. Buyers need to be sure that they will receive the item they purchased, and sellers must actually receive payment.
The consumer-business model is an e-commerce category which allows companies to derive value from consumers and vice versa.
In the C2B model, companies profit from consumers’ willingness to provide their own price or data transfer, or marketing to the company, while customers benefit from flexibility, direct payments or free products or services at a reduced price. Here, consumers rely on products and services offered by a business organization. Another form of C2B occurs when the contractor provides the company with a paid opportunity to promote the company’s products on the consumer’s blog. For example, food companies may ask bloggers to include a new recipe and read it by their blog readers.
Enabling this model was achieved by connecting huge crowds of people in a two-way network (Internet), which led to a reduction in technological costs.
Affiliate marketing involves the promotion of third-party products by an affiliate. It consists of four main units: seller or brand, network (containing offers for the partner to choose, also cares about payment), publisher (affiliate) and customer.

Sometimes partners use less orthodox techniques, such as publishing reviews of products or services offered by the partner.

This type of marketing activity resembles recommendation marketing, however, it focuses solely on the opinions of influential Internet users.
Viral marketing is one which is able to raise interest and potential sale of a brand or product through messages which spread like a virus, quickly and from person to person. The point is for users to decide to share content.
Due to the speed and ease of sharing, social networks are a natural environment for this type of marketing. The most common example in recent times is the creation of moving, surprising or spectacular videos on YouTube, which are then shared on Facebook, Twitter and other channels.
The reason to use virtualization is the ease of spreading. We must not forget that in this type of campaigns a large part of the control passes to the users and we risk that the message will be misinterpreted or paralyzed. On the other hand, a successful viral campaign can work wonders for your brand’s results.

The bounce rate is calculated by counting the number of visits to a single page and dividing it by the total number of visits. With it, you can determine the effectiveness or efficiency of the site in relation to the interests of visitors. A low bounce rate can mean that the site is effective in causing visitors to browse more pages and navigate deeper to the website. High bounce rates indicate that visitors only view individual pages without looking at others or taking any action on your site within a certain period of time.
An ecommerce website bounce rate can be interpreted in conjunction with the purchase conversion rate, provided the rejections are considered representative of non-purchased visits.
Cross-selling is a sales tactic designed to generate more sales by suggesting additional, related or complementary products to a buyer who has already committed to making a purchase.

KPIs are divided into two groups: high-level KPIs which track the overall performance of the company and low-level KPIs which measure key business functions, such as sales or marketing. To determine the right KPI, you must first set goals and tasks for everything you plan to track. The next step is to set specific conditions which will help you achieve your goals within the given time frame.

A landing page is a unique, autonomous website designed only to accomplish one conversion task.

This communication can take many different formats, such as email, telemarketing, point of sale and the other. One of the most interesting is direct email marketing. Direct marketing is effective when you reach specific audiences with personalized content. This type of marketing can be profitable because you don’t reach a large audience. An example is running a direct marketing campaign for people who have added specific products to your shopping cart but have not completed their purchase steps. Direct marketing campaigns are personalized, making your ad less likely to be sent by competitors.
Also called split testing. It is a test method used to compare two or more versions of the same page or application to determine which one converts or works better. Although the name (A / B tests) suggests that the experiment is carried out to compare two pages, it can include any number of pages. A / B testing provides reliable data to make informed decisions about improving website conversions. In order to experiment with the A / B testing method, you should: run the sample for 7 days to avoid timing, check if the site receives a minimum of 100 unique users and set a very clear goal.
