Do you have doubts about outsourcing? We know why!
Anytime you outsource the software development of your E-Commerce project, it feels like going through the darkroom. First, you feel uncertain and expect something bad to come out of the Internet-basement. Yes, you know your project inside out. But are you familiar with all the pitfalls of web development? So you are trying to carefully find your way out of this situation. You read every article about eCommerce outsourcing, write questions in forums, and compare teams and companies. Step by step, you wade through to the switch, choose an eCommerce business practice and turn on the light for your eCommerce business to shine!
If you go for outsourcing, you choose to work with people who may be in another city or even part of the world. Under such circumstances, it is harder to control all the processes. Outsourcing seems to be a leap in the dark. But what if we say that you outsource many tasks daily without realizing it?
To outsource = to delegate. How often do you put a filling in your tooth yourself? Or bake bread for breakfast? Probably, the answer is either never or never-ever. You don’t know how to do such chores, so you go to the dentist and buy freshly baked buns in the bakery. If you learned and did everything yourself, you would be a jack of all trades and a master of none. To be successful in eCommerce, you need to delegate when you cannot do yourself. When you find your perfect outsourcing development team, just like you find your dentist and bakery, the Internet will not resemble the basement, and outsourcing will be far from dark rooms.
E-Commerce – global trend, and a Pandora’s box with a panacea
Welcome to the age of consumerism! It is neither bad nor good. It just a fact.
Another fact – eCommerce has a tangible share in the global economy. It provides all types of products – from something as small as spoons and forks to a piece of enormous furniture, from something as usual as books to arthouse clothes for your dog. It allows orders from any part of the world: little town in Norway and New York City. Can’t find something in shops? Order from eBay. Don’t want to tackle the shipping of the couch? Get it delivered right to your apartment.
How can brick-and-mortar shops compete with it? The only advantage they had was the speed of product delivery (0 seconds because you get it right away) and the ability to check the quality. However, with 2-days-shipping and AR implementation, online shops build trust even more.
