Why ecommerce clone scripts are better than building online stores from scratch?

To start an ecommerce business you don’t always need a hefty amount of money that goes on building an online store from scratch. Market is packed with productive clone scripts that make way for new businesses and give them a definite way to have a head start.  Despite being replicas, clone scripts are chosen
over custom websites to launch ecommerce business. 



Following are the benefits that make clone scripts more popular: 

1. Clone Scripts are Affordable

Getting a quality web design in limited budget is nearly impossible so clone scripts prove affordable medium to attain quality i.e. at par with leading online stores. You can’t create custom website without hiring a design and development team and the cost of skilled developers is generally high. So people choose to buy a script of a popular ecommerce website from a trusted web partner instead of searching for development services.

2. Save time as well as efforts

If you pick out a clone script, your time of building a website from scratch is saved. Custom ecommerce stores take months/years to get live. The site is created in phases which include research, planning, wireframing, actual design & development, testing, etc. On the other hand, clone scripts are predefined and do not need this much of time to be fully operative. And if you buy readymade ecommerce website, then it takes less than three days to start an ecommerce business.


3. Clone Scripts are Scalable

Clone scripts are built to make a business progress as per changing marketing trends. Scalability makes good scripts adaptable by offering automatic upgrades and maintains performance level in the long run. This ensures timely improvements that enhance performance of an online store and make it apt as per the current demand of customers.

4. Easily customizable

Clones scripts give you less expensive way of starting an online store similar to big/popular stores like Amazon and Etsy. But that does not mean you are bound to look like these big brands forever. Initially a business demands strong and instant foothold so clone scripts are viable option but when you think it’s time to move few levels up, you can customize existing website easily. Most of the ecommerce websites built with clone scripts usually upgrade their design after a while to compete with bigger names. It happens when they become confident of their position in the market, have attained stability in terms of revenue, footfall, and want to build a brand. 

 

5. Fit in Budget of new/small businesses

There are lots of constraints, thoughts and risks that come along the idea of starting an ecommerce business. Owners of new businesses have to think of marketing too and usually have small budget in the beginning. In this state, cutting down the cost of development is most feasible option. The option of redesigning and making it bigger is always present with these small businesses depending on their growth and returns. The money saved on development can be utilized on marketing.

4 Lessons from Matt Cutts’ Statements on Reputation Management

This is a guest contribution from Brian Patterson, a partner at Go Fish Digital based in Washington, DC. Brian has extensive background as both a search engine optimization and online reputation management practitioner and brings an interesting approach to industry issues. You can find Brian on Google+ and Twitter.
Enter Brian…
We all know the power of having a positive online reputation, right? A comprehensive grasp on your online reputation means having complete control over what ranks for your brand name, what shows up in Autocomplete, what people are saying on social media, what your Wikipedia page says about you or your company, and on and on. While there are many places where you absolutely have to keep track of your reputation, all roads lead back to those 10 blue links on search result pages. If the search results for your brand name are poor, almost nothing else matters until that is fixed.
One of the cornerstones of managing the search results for your brand is the promotion of positive articles about your company. For example, if USA Today writes up a great article about your organization, you don’t want that to linger on page 2 where no one will see it when people search your company name. Rather, you want that to be front-and-center, maybe right after your own website and social profiles.
So, as good reputation management professionals, we perform search engine optimization efforts to help those articles rank higher. This means pointing links and social signals at those positive articles to get them to climb in Google’s rankings.
Not So fast, Though! Matt Cutts Is On To Us
For those who don’t know, Matt Cutts is the public face and spokesperson for the Google Search algorithm (technically the head of the Google web spam team).
In a recent Google Webmaster Tools video, Matt Cutts makes specific mention of reputation management agencies and calls out the activity of linking to positive articles about people and companies.
The context here is that Cutts’ is offering webmasters information on why they might have received a notification of unnatural links to their website and warns them about the potential for a manual penalty. You’ll find the key points for our discussion at 3:47 and 8:09 in the video below.
3:47 Another one we’ve seen is, well suppose you were a newspaper, and you’ve written something relatively nice about somebody. And then it turns out that he’s embezzled or that he’s been involved in real estate scam, or for whatever reason, he is using a reputation management firm. So the reputation management firm may be trying to push up the positive articles on a newspaper or on a new website or something like that.
Our primary purpose is to protect users. We haven’t been worried as much with, ‘ok, is this a link that was reputation management? So someone else was trying to push this article up’ or ‘is this someone who is doing paid link spam?’ ”We’ve just said, ‘ok, we don’t want these types of links to count.’
And later in the video, he describes how it is just the value of the links that might be taken away, not necessarily a penalty placed on the site:
8:09 As we’ve gotten more sophisticated, we’re more likely to say ‘perhaps individual links don’t count’. And that doesn’t have to be a bad thing. If a reputation management firm is pointing to one article on your site, that is not the end of the world.
Reading Between the Lines – The Lessons
A friend at church once told me that the measure of a good preacher is not in how many versus he can find to support a single point, but rather in how many points he can draw out of a single verse. So, I’m going to give that approach a test, as I believe that there are several lessons to be culled out of some seemingly straightforward statements from Cutts.
Lesson #1 – The Algorithm Adjusts for ORM Activities
I’ve never heard the folks at Google specifically mention reputation management in the context of algorithm adjustments. While I’m not naive enough to think that our industry has completely dodged the scrutiny of the Ph.Ds at Google, we had never had that public confirmation and thus always thought that maybe we weren’t a huge priority. However, the references in this video demonstrate that our intentions are certainly accounted for in the algorithm and our methods are acknowledged by those at Google.
Lesson #2 – We Better Build Quality Links
Google doesn’t like to be manipulated. They don’t want people to help push articles up or down in the search results. And, because of this, they implement updates to their algorithm to devalue any actions that encourage this type of movement. In the short term, it can still work to use massive amounts of low quality links to move content around in the search results. However, those actions don’t come without a downside – primarily that the changes tend to last only a few days to several weeks. Repairing your reputation is a long-term proposition, and short-term results don’t accomplish much on an Internet that never forgets.
Lesson #3 – There is Likely More to Come
Cutts doesn’t outright say this, but it seems that every algorithm update builds upon itself, so there is no reason to believe that Google would stop at just discounting backlinks. What if another cornerstone of our industry was taken away? For example, we all encourage individuals and companies to be active on social media. By being active on social media, clients can get their social profiles like Twitter and Facebook to rank highly for their names in Google. But what if Twitter/Facebook/etc. were moved to the right sidebar and out of the 10 results? Take a look at the picture below:
4 Lessons from Matt Cutts’ Statements on Reputation Management image taco bell social listing
Google, Twitter, and Pinterest were all on page 1 for ‘Taco Bell’. Now that they are in the sidebar, that is 3 more positions on Page 1 that have opened up that could get filled with any other content, negative or positive. Is it likely this will happen? Probably not, but who knows. What I’m saying is that we need to future-proof our efforts. Don’t just act on what Google does today, but what they appear to be working towards.
Lesson #4 – Don’t Believe Blindly
While all of this talk would have us believe that Google has cracked the code on link spam and it will no longer work, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. As my colleague Dan Hinckley pointed out a few days ago, one need look no further than the search results for ‘online reputation management’ to see some guys with a very questionable link profile ranking exceedingly well. Although Google is getting better at devaluing spam, it is still a game of whack-a-mole at this point.
So there’s a good 4-point sermon for you. SEO practitioners all take heed when Matt Cutts makes a proclamation, however I’ve noticed that ORM practitioners don’t jump nearly as high after hearing the same points. This clip is a nice reminder that our work is not overlooked, and that we are specifically accounted for by the PhDs in the Googleplex.

SEO vs PPC? More then Depend on Your Budget

Search engine optimization is one of the best ways to promote your business and to get more traffic for your site without spending any money. However, pay-per-click advertising can also get you results – sometimes faster. Which one is right for your business?

There are a number of things to consider when you are trying to determine whether you should focus your efforts on SEO or PPC – or whether you should switch from one to the other when faced with a particular set of circumstances. Here are a few things to ask yourself when trying to decide on SEO or PPC for your business:

 What’s Your Budget?
Pay-per-click advertising can get very expensive. Even if you’re fortunate enough to have keywords that don’t have a high cost-per-click (CPC), there is still a relatively low average conversion rate for most ads, and so you will need to pay for a lot of clicks before you start seeing sales and e-mail opt-ins. Determine how much you have to spend, and if it’s not enough to make it worth it, focus on building your SEO while you save for an appropriate budget for a successful ad campaign.

How Fast Do You Want to Get Results?
Everyone wants their business to be an overnight success, yet that’s not going to be possible for most people. Think in more realistic terms and decide how quickly you want to – or need to – get results. SEO is a long-term play, but once you start making gains with it, you will attain a more stable position for your web presence. PPC will achieve faster results, which is useful if you are a small startup, you are introducing a new product or service, or you are trying to turnaround poor quarterly results.
While PPC can get you quicker results, it’s not guaranteed. You’ll get more prominent exposure for your site, but you may not get the click-through that you need. You have to have a solid campaign behind your budget.

How Much Time Do You Have for Study?
While anyone can learn SEO, not everyone has the time to do it. Casual reading of SEO blogs can help you to understand basic concepts like the need for quality links or how to use keywords appropriately. But how do you get a quality link? How do you know what keywords to target?

You have to devote the time to studying SEO to learn successful strategies and then to implement them. This is especially important since search algorithms are always changing, and you may need to change your strategies quickly to see results. If you don’t have the time to devote to learning and staying abreast of successful SEO, it may be worth investing in PPC instead – or hiring someone else to do your SEO for you.

What’s Your Competition?
Highly competitive fields may result in two things: The cost-per-click (CPC) of the keywords you want to target for a PPC campaign will be too much for your budget, or if you are trying to use SEO instead, your page will become buried in search results for those keywords. There are a couple of things you can do. Take the slow and steady approach with SEO, or increase your budget for PPC. You can also target more niche keywords that have lower competition to rank your site faster or to manage a PPC campaign that fits your lower budget...Visit Source

Does Your Company Need an Instagram Storefront?

Use Instagram to Grow Your Business
Image Source

As the internet continues to make it easier to connect with potential customers, some entrepreneurs have decided that Instagram isn't just for "selfies," but for marketing. Blogger Jason Kottke reported last month on Kuwait's "booming Instagram economy," where anyone with an Instagram account is simply putting a price tag on an item, taking a photograph, and selling it via the photo sharing online social network.
Everything from Manga to make-up, and more is being sold in this very simple and direct platform, leveraging additional free technology like WhatsApp (customer service), PayPal, and Square(transactions) to make the business infrastructure as simple as possible.
Not unlike eBay and the power-sellers it spawned, Instagram has the scale, stability, and user trust to create a viable marketplace. Once upon a time, if you wanted to sell online you needed a sturdy e-commerce site with analytics, a robust hosting facility, and a web team to create, design, merchandise, market, and more. Today, you need a couple of free accounts on some of the major online channels along with the persistence to keep at it. Is this the digital equivalent of a garage sale, or the next generation of business?
The answer is likely somewhere in between. It's doubtful that those in the upper echelons of the massive consumer packaged goods companies are going to care about this, or that Sephora and Walmart see this as a competitive threat, but the barriers to entry for someone to start and market a new business continue to be lowered.
How to setup an Instagram account for your business

These Instagram businesses may not be the next big thing, but they could well be the nascent stages of what is the next big, small thing in business today. On April 23rd and 24th of this year, the American University of Kuwait hosted a two day conference, featuring case studies, how-to's and networking for those wondering what it takes to build a business on Instagram. The Insta Business Expo, featured a slew of new entrepreneurs who built and grew their respective businesses through Instagram.
While this may seem inconsequential in the grander scheme of global economics and business, consider the global reach of Instagram, the burgeoning ability to use 3-D printing to create or augment existing products, and the desire from consumers for more unique products and services. There is also potential here for more traditional brands to try moments of commerce; an Instagram storefront could help validate a new product line or market ancillary products.
Instagram should not be underrated as an engine of marketing, considering the engagement beautiful images can generate. Today's Instagram entrepreneurs have uncovered an easy way for brands to quickly share new inventory, and a very simple way to conduct business from a smartphone. If your brand has the goods, you might want try out an Instagram store of your own.
