Make Your Store Stand Out
When you choose DNN for your eCommerce website, there are a
lot of factors you need to consider. While it can be a little overwhelming at
first, don’t be discouraged! DNN ranks highest in ease of use, whether you are
a seasoned developer or a first-time merchant staring your own online store.
Use this guide to help you make your store stand out.
The first thing your customers will see is the overall
layout and design of your website. Whether you want a custom skin, or you find
one you love out of the box, it is important to use one that has the look and
feel you are trying to convey to anyone who visits your website. Customers will
begin to associate with your brand if your website has a consistent design
While the skin you choose is important, don’t forget about the
landing page of your website-- or your “Home Page.” Because this is the first
page many potential customers will see, DNN makes it easy to jazz up. You can
pick from a multitude of home page slider modules, social media feed modules
and blog plug-ins. Utilizing options like these are crucial in setting your
website above the rest.
In this day and age, a significant amount of your web
traffic could very well be mobile users. “Nearly two-thirds (63%) of cell phone
owners now use their phone to go online, according to a new survey by the Pew
Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project.” This is a careful
consideration to make when considering all things website related. You will
want to make sure that your skin is mobile friendly and shrinks down
proportionately on smartphones and tablets. Also, when finding modules on the
DNN store, you should always make sure the modules are workable across all smartphone
The significance of choosing the right module for your eCommerce store
cannot be overstated. While there are plenty of options for DNN, you want to
make sure you are selecting the right software for you and your website. Not
every module will be a good fit. Some things you may want to take into
consideration are features that you need and what integrated payment gateways
you might use. Take some time to think about merchant accounts and payment
gateways. Some modules have hosting packages and others do not. The most
important thing in selecting a module for your online store is utilizing a free
trial. Here at Smith Consulting, we always encourage a “fly before you buy”
mentality because there is no sense in purchasing software you won’t be able to
When you start adding these elements up, it shows how many
pieces of a puzzle can come together to make one really attractive and functional
website. We encourage you to try out
SmithCart or our hosting and let us know what you think. We offer free 15 day free trials for all of our modules. Whether you are just starting out, or looking to revamp your existing
site, with DNN it can be easy to make your store stand out.
