The demands made by consumers on e-commerce websites are growing rapidly. Whilst websites used to be very simple, they are now required to be adaptable and provide a host of different features. This means that start-ups are faced with a dilemma: which of these common features, found in different computer website templates, are worth it and which are worth stretching your budget for?
Single Product Themes
If your website is simply there to advertise one single product, this computer website template is all you need. Often cheaper, they are simple for the website visitor to use and navigate. They are also often very simplistic in design.
Do you have a variety of types of products, which have different models and functionalities? Perhaps the price range of your products is also quite wide? If this is the case, subcategories are crucial to ensure that your customer can get quickly and directly to the product they are specifically interested in. Website visitors only spend between 10-20 seconds on your web-page before they decide whether to stay or move on. Don’t make them scroll through all of your products to get to the right one. If you do, the chances are that they will quickly get bored and frustrated and you will lose their purchase. Subcategories allow customers with a more direct route to what is relevant to them.
Many companies understand the importance of releasing newsletters on a regular basis. This practice is particularly useful if you want to gain credibility in the market. By providing updated information on new research, developments or releases, your brand is likely to gain credibility in the market. By having this tool integrated into the computer website templates themselves, your customer can access that most easily, as it will be easy to find.
Zoom-in Product Images
This feature is a must-have if your customers are likely to want to see what the product looks like. It is worth analysing your customers’ shopping behaviours at this stage. Are they likely to find the information they need to make a selection and purchase by looking at a detailed image of the product? If so, then it is worth providing this feature. Many online consumers are used to having the luxury of zoom-in product images in a variety of industries, so depending on your range of products, it’s likely to be well worth ensuring that your chosen computer website template has the feature.
This feature is particularly useful if your website offers a variety of different types of products. A drop-down menu helps your website viewer to see all the contents of your website in one glance. This helps the navigation feel smoother, easier and quicker. This is certainly an advantage if your potential customers want to browse, but still have quite a specific idea of what they are looking for.
Most computer web templates are made to be viewed on computers. However, many users are now viewing websites, and shopping online, using a variety of devices. Currently, the most popular device to use when online shopping are smartphones and tablets. Both of these types of devices require unique user interfaces to properly view your site and to maintain the quality of their viewing experience. Unless it is highly likely that your customers don’t own mobile devices, choosing a computer website template that is unresponsive to handheld devices could lead you to losing many potential customers.
