We were recently asked to create a website for a client whose products were imported from a drop shipping company.
A drop shipping company is a wholesale warehouse company, which will send products direct from their premises to your customer from orders placed on your website at a price that you charge.
Unfortunately the prices you are charged are normal prices and by the time you add on your margin, means that your selling prices are not competitive.
We had an experience, where we agreed to create a website for a customer using a drop shipping company, however as it takes time for the site to rise on search engines (seo) and the prices that they were charging, they did not receive the volume of orders they were expecting.
Therefor we will only agree to create a website, if a drop shipping company is involved, if the products you are selling are unique and are not white goods or computer spares.
If you have any questions or would like to discus your new website strategy then please contact us or leave a comment below.
BLACK Friday has made a name for itself as one of the busiest shopping days of the year.
But you’d be a fool to forget about Cyber Monday – a UK tradition where online retailers slash their prices just three days after Black Friday.
Just like Black Friday, you can expect online deals on appliances, gadgets and games. As it’s online, get ready for a lot more choice that you might see in store – and a lot more time to shop, as obviously you don’t even need to get out of bed to take advantage of low prices.
If you are a retailer who wishes to open an online shop, contact us now, so we can have your new website up and running before cyber Monday which is on 27th November 2016.
If you’re a confectioner or specialise in cakes, it would be a good idea to have a website to show off your products for Easter. If you contact us now we can have a website up and running in no time at all.
Hurry though as Easter is fast approaching!

We have recently been tasked with setting up an Electronic Point Of Sale (EPOS) system for a business. This will enable them to log all sales transactions and stock control automatically and produce end of day sales reports.
The system we are using integrates with sage (accounts program) to allow full accounting for vat, profit and loss etc.
It is based on an industry standard database (mySQL), we have chosen to use this so that we can integrate a website at a later date which will automatically be updated when new products are added or prices change.
This is a slight change from our usual website development, but we are convinced this is the way forward for total integration for small business. The system can also operate on tablets (android and windows 10) so your sales staff can make transactions away from your main till.

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year in America and is a trend that has made its way across to the UK. It will be on Friday 25th November 2016.
Why do we have Black Friday?
Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year in America and is a trend that has made its way across to the UK and now most UK retailers introduce sales, deals and discounts on this day that are similar to the Boxing Day sales.
While the colour black can be associated with negative connotations, in this case black is positive and means profitability.
Traditionally, profitability was noted down in retailers’ books in black, while losses were noted in red.
Many people now prefer to shop online (e-commerce). This has been proved by sales figures from high street retailers against their web based counterparts, more money is spent online every year and retailers can no longer afford to be complacent about it! lets face it, no-one likes to queue!
