Six Dimensions of Ecommerce

Rishi Rawat Blog Posts 3 Comments

If you are an online retailer make sure your store stands out on at least one of the following dimensions:

— unique product (that is very very hard to find elsewhere)
— lowest price (biggest discount)
— largest selection
— friendliest policies (shipping, return, membership discount etc)
— uniquest content (heartfelt editorial, video, superb product photography etc)
— most innovative features (filter options, in stock reminder, gift finder, etc)

If your store has none of these qualities I guarantee you’ll never pay off that loan you took to build the estore.

    Hey Mike, I totally agree. Lowest prices is impossible to maintain (unless you are a Wal-Mart) and I personally don’t think retailers should focus on that attribute. But, it is an available differentiating attribute so I listed it. I think what you refer to as copywriting I call ‘heartfelt editorial’ so here too we are on the same page. Both sites you shared have superb copy, great find.
