Q?

How do I know if my website can support “m-commerce and what is it?”

A.

Mobile, also referred to as "m-commerce" is use of a mobile device, such as a phone or tablet, to access the web. Since these devices are much smaller than the average desktop computer, a web page must be rendered such that is readable. Otherwise, someone visiting your website will simply move on and visit another site. Perhaps a competitor?

Q?

I already have a website. Is that enough?

A.

Perhaps. But even if you have the perfect website, your job is not over. An online presence means staying current. It means ensuring your customer experience exceeds their expectations. It means growing and expanding as your customer's needs grow and expand.

Q?

How do I get products and services listed on Amazon, Etsy, Zulily and more?

A.

You have many choices. You can enter these yourself, hire someone to do the work. Or you can work with a third party who will resell on your behalf. There are positives and negatives to each approach. And clearly no one size fits all answer. Once set up on these marketplaces, the work is not over though. You need to work on improving search results, updating product and more.

Q?

I’m not very technical. What do I do?

A.

One of the amazing aspects of technology is as it grows, the ability to interact with it is often reduced. The modern computer is all about point and click, whereas the first computers were anything but. With that said, when setting up a website, or other digital forms of media, etc it is best to have someone more experienced do the initial work. Once the "heavy lifting" is done, the day to day maintenance becomes a more traditional "point and click" approach for even the non-technical people.

Q?

How come my website does not show up on search engines?

A.

There's no one answer. Improving your search results depends on a number of things. Though search engine optimization (SEO) often implies spending money to improve search, that is far from the best solution. Often being creative and understanding exactly what search engines are looking for yields the biggest result.

Q?

What different services do you provide?

A.

Up Early Designs offers everything from website design and customization. We do editorial content for websites and other media both print and digital. We can help with improving search results (SEO), sales and marketing strategies, e-commerce and m-commerce (mobile) and a lot more. We've built and sold businesses. We've worn multiple hats to the point that some of us are balding. So our list of what services we provide is essentially limited to one's imagination.

Q?

I have a Facebook page and Twitter account. Is that enough?

A.

It's a start. Good job. But it's just a start. Unfortunately social media, though insanely powerful, is often misunderstood. Getting a Facebook page or an Instagram account is just the start of your journey. It's a good journey to be on, but you need to understand where you are going and most importantly how you will get there.
