Homebase runs Britain’s worst online shop, according to a survey by consumer group Which?
The DIY chain’s website was hard to navigate, offered poor value for money and was often not up to date on stock details, the survey found.
The most highly-rated shops were specialist retailers, led by LizEarle.com and RicherSounds.com.
Which? said the popularity of smaller retailers’ sites underlined the importance of offering a personal, convenient service that gave “shoppers exactly what they want”.
“Where the big players are lacking, either with poor service or confusing websites, smaller more specialised online retailers have seized the opportunity to make their mark and give shoppers exactly what they want.”
We at mOrsoft offer a personal and bespoke website design service for smaller retailers, giving shoppers the experience they want.
We have been busy updating our current client websites to reflect the seasonal change from Summer to Autumn. This is particularly important to our clients in the fashion business and seasonal merchandise.
Also it is worth remembering that now is the ideal time to update your website ready for Christmas.
If you are interested in launching a new website or updating an existing website, then please contact us to see how we can help.
We have had a number of website requests which seem like a good idea at the time.
However, although these requests are a good idea, further marketing is required.
Some of the websites we have been asked to create are listed below.
All these websites have been created before and are established by main companies ie. Tinder, Ebay, Yell etc.
For your site to succeed, you will have to choose a website idea that has not been done before and has a unique selling point. Such a site might be a dating site for engineers only, or an auction site which specialises in one particular product ie. bicycles.
