My Top 7 Favorite Ecommerce Tools
Copyright 2005 Jim Edwards
When you make your living on the Internet, you sometimes
forget that the resources you use every day (and take for
granted) might rate an incredible discovery to anyone who
doesn't already know they exist.
Whether they help you make money, save time, save money, or
avoid frustration, these ecommerce tools and services rate
my highest recommendation for anyone who conducts any form
of ecommerce online.
If you sell a downloadable product such as an ebook,
report, or software, you can't beat ClickBank for
processing credit card payments. Not only do they take the
payments and send you a check twice a month, they also plug
your product into an existing network with
tens-of-thousands of affiliates who can sell it for you.
Also, unlike a traditional merchant credit card processing
account, ClickBank assumes all the fraud risk and prevents
many of the "horror" stories you hear in connection with
online credit card processing.
Since ClickBank only allows the sale of downloadable
products, MySiteSales.com comes to the rescue for anyone
selling a physical product or service. Offering a suite of
integrated product catalogs, follow up autoresponders,
advertising tracking, a secure server, and even
limited-time coupon offers, this tool rates a "must have"
for setting up and integrating a professional ecommerce
solution on virtually any size website.
If you need an unlimited number of follow up autoresponders
and the ability to send an email "broadcast" to all your
contacts at one time, Aweber offers an excellent managed
solution. Specializing in helping small to medium-sized Web
businesses implement an effective email follow-up strategy
without complicated software, Aweber gets our highest marks
for service and dependability.
Cheap, reliable, easy-to-use domain name registrar that
only charges $8.95 per year for each domain name you
register. Godaddy rates cheaper and just as, if not more,
reliable than any other domain registrar. They also offer a
"private registration" option that allows you to keep your
identity as the domain owner a secret from unscrupulous
people who exploit domain name records to compile mailing
lists, spam databases or worse.
Any successful ecommerce endeavor begins with a solid
website hosting service. Nothing shuts you down faster than
an unreliable web host because, the second they go offline,
your business goes offline. I host one of my servers at
FrontierPowerHosting.com because of great customer service
and guaranteed up-time.
Ever pulled your hair out searching for that perfect image,
photo, or piece of clipart for your website? Once you
exhaust the Microsoft collection on your computer, the next
stop (if you want to find something fast) is Clipart.com.
With thousands of images searchable by keyword, you can
always find the perfect image in less time and without the
worries of copyright infringement if you just pull
something off the Web.
Website got traffic but no making much money? Open a free
account with Google AdSense and earn a commission any time
someone clicks on any of the targeted ads. An excellent way
to earn extra cash on virtually any website.
