Future of Buying and Selling Online

eCommerce, commonly known as electronic marketing, e-commerce, or ecommerce, consists of the buying and selling of products or services over electronic systems such as the Internet and other computer networks. In more simple words, if you sell or buy anything from internet, it is inside the domain of eCommerce.

eCommerce is growing rapidly in all over the world and there are very important key factors which provide the basic roots for such a boost. Here, we will discuss some of very important key factors which play important role in eCommerce popularity

1 – Technology

Technology is the most important factor in eCommerce rapid growth, as computers are becoming more and more readily available all over the world, internet is growing much faster than ever before. Just imagine, internet is available in almost every village and town of Canada, USA, UK, Europe and Australia. In most countries, a five year old child is known to access internet. eCommerce was totally dependent on computer technology just a decade ago, but not now. Mobile phones and handheld PCs can access internet just like PCs do. Now, you can buy or sell anything from internet while you are on vacation far away from your home. It is easy if you have a cell phone with GPRS services enabled.

2 – Easiness

Another major factor is easiness. Just imagine, in less than 10 clicks of your mouse, few pressed keys, you can buy anything while watching TV in your drawing room. You can compare prices of your favourite item from all over the world, and then place order from the seller of your top priority in term of delivery time, rate and quality. You can buy anything like shirts, jackets, electronics, groceries, eatables, food items or anything you could imagine. Competition between eCommerce (online sellers) is so great that you could order anything with same day delivery option.

3 – Price Factor

Price is another factor you can compare prices with rest of the world, search best price shops and place order after making it sure that you are buying the best item at lowest rate. There are only 10% chances that you may buy at high price otherwise most of the time prices are almost the same or less than the market in your area.

4 – Safety/Guarantee

Almost every online seller provides safe product delivery guarantee. If you don’t like product you can return it to seller and you will get full refund of your payment. Items are carefully packed and delivered at your home without any delivery charges within the national boundary.

5 – Online Gift Shops

Online gift shops are one of the best domain of eCommerce. These shops provide services for sending gifts to your loved ones on occasions like new year, birthday, Christmas, wedding anniversaries, new born baby, valentine’s day. You can book gifts like flowers, cakes, perfumes, stuffed toys, mobile phones etc and send it to your loved ones in anywhere in the world. You do not need to be close to your friends and family on the most important day of their life, you can celebrate their happiness by sending flowers, cakes and sweets from these online shops with your personal message and greeting card/postcards.

Final Note:

With time eCommerce graph will keep inclining as it exploits the nature of human psychology like comfort ness, easiness and tension free shopping.

Why Custom T-Shirt Printing is Great For Marketing

Are you looking to create a buzz around the office? Create team spirit and collegiate pride? Custom t-shirts have been a favorite branding tool for many years, but it’s not until recently that the price have come down enough to make it worthwhile for smaller customers to participate. Online custom t-shirt shops allows more people the chance to showcase their creativity on a living canvas. Think about it, how long a lifespan does a flyer campaign have? A newspaper ad? Then consider the fact that retro t-shirts from the 70’s and 80’s are still selling better than ever. With a t-shirt campaign, people may be wearing your message for years to come. We all have that special t-shirt that reminds us of something in the past. We’ll wear it until it literally falls of our shoulders. That’s the power of custom t-shirts.

This is a time of individual branding. We show our unique style and personality in everything we do, from which cell phone we use, to what color our iPod is, but most importantly, we use clothing to show who we are. Custom t-shirts fit the bill. It’s a cheap, fun and inclusive way of letting your audience know who you are and what you stand for.

It’s now cheaper than ever to get custom printing done. This is mostly because of the online print shops, which can save money on stock and staff, because they run their business online. Custom t-shirt printing is no different. The price is low, shipping is cheap, as low as a few dollars for smaller orders and no more than $20 for bulk orders. You simply can’t do better than that in the brick and mortar print shops.

Why t-shirts? Why not get a custom bag or coffee mug? Well, first of all, no one wears their coffee mug around with them all the time. The t-shirt with print however, has become an integral part of everyday fashion. It’s all good and fine to get pens and coffee mugs with your message on them, but you won’t reach the same audience that you will with the iconic custom print t-shirt. Express yourself!

Getting a custom t-shirt printed is a fun way to be creative and bring a group together. It’s also a very effective way of showcasing that designer within you! A t-shirt is like a living canvas, urban art and communication all in one.

Online (T-shirt) Shopping Done Right

First things first … I happen to be in the t-shirt printing business and I think its fair to say that us screen printers (aside from your fashion expert from some fancy New York boutique) are pretty darn good when it comes to matching customers’ fashion concerns with good lasting quality products.

Since I’m pretty much a local guy, I come in contact with people of all sorts trying to start up their own clothing line or making a few shirts for an up and coming band. Now usually you would think that everyone out there is looking for the lowest price on clothing. While that may be true in many aspects, mismatching the wearability or the appeal of the product is probably costlier in the end. From my experience, if you EDUCATE (notice the all-caps) your audience about the product, they will opt for the more expensive but more appropriate product.

So is the statement ‘a t-shirt is a t-shirt’ really accurate? When talking to some of my clients, its important to listen to their requirements. I discovered that even something as tangible as a tee shirt can have a subjective quality ; an expected performance, if you will. For instance, a fitted shirt as compared to a regular t shirt serves a different purpose. Why you ask? Primarily because of the garment stitching and cut.

Regular tee shirts are meant to give more breathable room and are styled for a loose fit for all occasions and activities. Fitted shirts are usually worn for dual reasons: one, because the wearer is attempting to make a statement and two, because the environment (hot party scene, maybe?) of the wearer calls for something a little more fashionable. See the difference? And thats just one aspect of tshirts … we haven’t even started on the material makeup or the differences across name brands (yup, everyone is unique and so are the brands that outfit them).

For now, I’ve just given some general pointers on being aware of the slight nuances between t-shirts. Look for my next blog to shine some light on the newest available summer clothing.

If you would like to get some product comparisons of your own, feel free to shoot me an email! Remember, if you end up regretting your t-shirt purchase because you just didn’t have the right information before buying it, it’s not your fault!
