Please feel free to comment. I would be interested in the opinion of others on this one! Thanks to Richard at Mortgage Savers for passing this to me

Practical & Affordable – E-commerce websites from BSA Marketing

Earlier this year, a study showed on-line sales have grown 14% in the year to May 09 (compared with year to May 08). The e-retail industry continues to perform well during the recession with year on year growth at around 15% being achieved consistently over the last 10 months. We are also seeing growth in the average basket value with UK shoppers spending £10 more online per visit compared to a year ago.”

With more and more shopping being done on-line, e-commerce is rapidly becoming an essential part of any retailers marketing mix. However, traditionally a fully featured & flexible e-commerce systems have been expensive, and have meant taking a decision to buy in to a solution provided by a specific suplier. At BSA We take a different approach: We believe On-line retailing is still about Marketing & Customer Service. As such any e-commerce system has to support these areas not drive them. With over 20 years experience in Marketing, and 10 years experience in marketing on the internet, we are ideally placed to deliver e-commerce solutions that work in the real world. Furthermore, buy focusing on open source solutions*, we are able to deliver solutions quickly & within realistic budgets. “I was desperate to upgrade our website in particular we needed more functionality for our consumers to stay competitive in our marketplace. I researched a number of providers who were charging 10’s of thousands of pounds to make the home page look great but found they had no true knowledge of retail on-line, stock systems and “behind the scenes” functionality paramount to our business. BSA were not only able to provide the solutions I needed but also offered advice and support giving me confidence their knowledge could better promote my business. The end result was providing a great website at a fraction of the cost, giving great value for money.”
