It is imperative for a business to have a website. If the business is selling certain products or services, then setting up an e-commerce site is surely worthwhile. With an e-commerce site, a business will be able to sell its products or services effortlessly to the prospective customers all around the world. But, how would a business be able to set an e-commerce site?

Due to competition, there are numerous e-commerce sites on the internet, and to top all those sites, a business needs to come up with a unique e-commerce solution. Here are some steps that may assist a business in setting up a fruitful e-commerce site.

Think about an ingenious store name

The name of the e-commerce site can play a big role in the success or the failure of the site. What you should do is come up with a clever name for your online store. The simpler the name, the better it is for your site. A customer would not want to make an effort or waste time memorizing a lengthy, awkward name of your site. Thus, simplicity is the way to go when it comes to naming an e-commerce site.

There are ways to create your store name. You can either use the word that already exists or create your own novel word. The problem with using the word that already exists, however, is that someone might have probably used it for his or her site. On the other hand, the problem with using a novel word is that it might sound ridiculous or may not suit your business or may not be well accepted by the customers. What you can do is try “Business Name Generator” sites (Google it) to find or get the idea for the possible name for your online store. Just keep in mind that the name should be simple, yet catchy enough to set you aside from the competitors.

Come up with an enchanting logo

Just like the name of your e-commerce site, the logo of your online store should be simple, yet mesmerizing. The logo should be simple because we all know how difficult it is to recall complex signs or symbols. Besides, a simple, yet cleverly designed logo, factors toward easy identification of your online brand among the rest.

While creating the logo for your e-commerce site, you need to ensure that it is legible and readable in the mobile version. Your potential customers might access your e-commerce site from a mobile device, and you do not want a choppy logo displayed on the smaller screen. Your logo should stay uniform whether it is rendered on a big screen 4K monitor or a 4-inch smartphone.

Creating a creative logo for your online store obviously demands the skills of an experienced designer. You can, however, give a shot at “Business Logo Generator” sites (again Google it) to design a reasonably good logo. Just be sure that the logo is simple but attractive enough to leave a deep impression in the minds of your potential customers.

Create enthralling website design

The website design of your e-commerce site plays a crucial role in attracting, retaining and regaining your customers. As a rule of thumb, keep the web design of your online store “Simple.” Do not clutter the content and visual elements, as it only makes it difficult for the customers to find whatever things they want. Keep the web design clean and carefully place the user interface (UI) elements in order to offer better user experience (UX) to your customers. Also, make sure that the design is responsive, where it is uniformly accessible from any devices with any screen sizes and orientations.

Along with web design, you also need to ensure the SEO friendliness of your online store. By SEO friendly, it means you should have the uniform URLs with proper keywords for each page of your site. The e-commerce site should also include the sitemap. The content of the site should be original, short and precise, easy to understand, and free of any grammatical and spelling mistakes. Do not mislead the customers with shady content. Also, avoid outbound links and pesky ads on your website.

In order to create a mesmerizing responsive web design for your online store, it will be in your best interest to hire a professional web design company, unless you are good with the web designing tools.

Build your online store

Once you have a unique name, ingenious logo, and beautiful web design for your e-commerce site, it is finally the time to build the actual website. Unlike personal websites, blog sites and business websites, e-commerce sites are a bit complex. Nevertheless, there are many free as well as paid e-commerce platforms available on the market that helps build exceptional e-commerce websites. For instance, there is Magento, Zen Cart, Shopify, Drupal Commerce, etc., which can help create an excellent online store. Selecting the e-commerce platform depends on you and your business needs. Considering the types of products you will be selling, the payment methods you be accepting, the shipping you will be providing, the promotion offers you will be offering, and so on will be helpful in selecting the right e-commerce platform for your online store.

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, e-commerce sites are complex; hence, you will need e-commerce developers to help you build your online store. In order to find the e-commerce developers or e-commerce specialists, your favorite search engine can be your best resort. Googling “ecommerce developers” will give you results of many good e-commerce development companies. Approach those e-commerce development companies with your requirements and get the price quotes they offer. Pick the one that offers the best price. Note, however, that the companies that offer low-priced quotes are not necessarily the best. The same is true for the ones that offer high-priced quotes! What you need to do is see the experience, specialization as well as the track record of the e-commerce development companies. The e-commerce development companies with vast experience, diverse specialization in different e-commerce platforms, and successful track record are the ones that are worth considering.

That is it! Hire that e-commerce development company, share your vision with them, and they will build an excellent e-commerce site for you.

Since the day of its release, Android 6.0 Marshmallow received its biggest piece of the market last month.

Android Marshmallow was released in November, but the OS failed to impress the masses. However, according to an update by Android Developers Dashboard, the latest edition of Google’s mobile operating system doubled its adoption rate from a month ago. Android 6.0 was found on 4.6 percent of all devices that visited the Google Play Store. That number was up from 2.3 percent a month ago.

The slow adoption of Marshmallow up to the Android ecosystem is a familiar one. The slow adoption rate for any new iteration of the Android OS is a side effect of the clumsy and often frustrating upgrade process. This happens because, when Google releases a new version of its mobile OS, smartphone maker and then mobile carries the test it before they cook up a rollout for each mobile device. The consumers have to wait for months before they can receive the latest version.

However, with an intent to attract new customers, some smartphone making companies such as HTC, LG, Sony, and Motorola and have been pushing out the new version. Whereas there are some smartphone manufacturing companies such as Samsung that just started rolling out Marshmallow to its flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones in February. As more Galaxy devices follow suit, Marshmallow’s adoption could start growing at a brisker pace.

Compared to Marshmallow, Lollipop is still the most beloved and highly adopted version of the Android OS. It tops the chart with a whopping 35.5 percent share. It is followed by KitKat with a 33.4 percent slice and Jelly Bean with 21.3 percent. The elderly Android mobile OS, Ice Cream Sandwich and Gingerbread are still hanging on with 2.2 percent & 2.6 percent shares, respectively.

It’s time for Android App Compatibility Test

As Android 6.0 Marshmallow is gradually increasing its market share; hence, this is the time for businesses to go for an Android App Compatibility test. An app compatibility test will help you conclude, whether your existing android app and game will work properly with the latest version of the android of not. For app compatibility test, you can contact an android app development company or hire android developers at www.conceptinfoway.net.

If you have heard about App Store Optimization, then you will agree to the point that ASO is somewhat similar to a congested city crossroad with seemingly endless vehicles striving to race ahead of each other. In simple words, App Store Optimization is to an app developer what Search Engine Optimization is to internet marketers and web content writer. In ASO, we try to improve the visibility and ranking of an application in different app stores. But, how does this work? If you wish to sail the turbulent water of App Store Optimization, then follow these 6 extraordinary optimization tips by experts.

1. Understand the Users App Discovery Pattern

According to the Forrester report, approximately 63% of users search for an app before downloading. This means that users seriously take time to find out good and useful apps. Hence, the chance of good apps getting found is quite high. Additionally, approximately 58% downloads are recommended apps from friends and family; therefore, when you promote your app in the app store, keep your audience in mind and their app finding and downloading pattern.

2. Don’t Forget to Optimize Keywords & Icon

Same as SEO, don’t forget to optimize the keywords. For this, you can use keyword tools to optimize title and description keywords. If your app works in the combination of another app, then you can use the name of that app in the title and description fields. Another most important factor is App Icon. Try to keep the app icon clean and captivating, as it is one of the contributing factors to app discovery.

3. High Quality & Useful Screenshots

Submit high-quality & sharp screenshots of your app, because it is your very first chance to impress your potential customer. Screenshots with potential app information will help your targeted customers in multiple ways. You can submit 8 screenshots in play store and with iOS, it’s 5; hence, make a wise use of every screenshot you submit.

4. Use Ethical and White Hat Optimization Tactics

If you desire for long term reward, then better follow white hat and ethical App Store Optimization tactics. Alike search engines, the app stores are also enough; hence, don’t try to fool them. You can create sustainable growth that has a meaningful impact on your business.

5. Ask Real People to Describe Your App

People use natural language to search apps in search engines or app store search; hence, you should know how your people describe your app in their own terms / words. This will certainly help you recognize valuable keywords that others may miss. There are more app store optimization tips that fall under my ‘people first’ approach to app marketing.

6. Update Your App Frequently

Updating your app is one of the most productive app optimization techniques. Gift new versions of your app to customers with complete bug fixes, improvements in existing functionalities and new features to offer the best possible experience. However, users won’t know about these changes unless you tell them.

Fun Fact: The SE in the iPhone SE, according to Phil Schiller, VP at Apple Inc., stands for “Special Edition.”

It’s confirm; Google is releasing an update to remove ads from the right side of its desktop search results, and places ads only at the top and bottom of the page. Simultaneously, company also stated that it may display an additional ad – instead of 3 you may find 4 ads – above the search results.

In response to this change, marketers are asking: Does it impact organic search – and if so, how? How does it influence advertising? What can marketers do about the changes?

Reason Behind This Change

This update of removing the ads from the right side does a couple of things for Google; however, here are top reasons behind why Google axed the right side ads from SERPs, and they are;

• Google wanted to offer a cleaner user experience.
• Google’s desire to offer more cohesive experience between mobile and desktop search, because mobile search surpassed desktop search in the last couple of years.
• According to Google, overwhelming majority of paid clicks also come from ads above organic results.

Impact on Organic Search Results

It is hard to say at this point of time, but according to the industry experts, this update certainly has to do something with organic search results. Fewer paid ads could increase organic traffic, a fourth ad above organic results could also push results down the page to a point that lowers traffic. Furthermore, there are chances of lower click through rate as organic results may appear down due to an extra paid ad on the above.

So, what can be done?

If you want to stay on course through these changes, here’s what we suggest:

1. Stay on the top of organic search results.
2. Review how your ads appear in Google’s SERPs.
3. Review your average position in search results for a given keyword.
4. Increase your average position in search results for relevant keywords by increasing your bid or improve your quality score.

Unfortunately, Microsoft has decided to discontinue its dream project Astoria. Microsoft has officially confirmed that they are abandoning their plans to use the project to port Android apps to Windows 10 Mobile. The news doesn’t come as a surprise: the company puts Project Astoria on the hole back in November before it was even fully ready.

The Microsoft’s one of the most valued Project Astoria came to surface last year during the Build Developer Conference, where a similar plan to build a so-called “Bridge” between iOS and Windows was also announced. The Project Astoria and Bridge, both were plan to help developers port android apps and iOS apps to windows phone respectively.

Here’s what Microsoft said:

“We received a lot of feedback that having two Bridge technologies to bring code from mobile operating systems to Windows was unnecessary, and the choice between them could be confusing. We have carefully considered this feedback and decided that we would focus our efforts on the Windows Bridge for iOS and make it the single Bridge option for bringing mobile code to all Windows 10 devices, including Xbox and PCs.”

The announcement to discontinue the project Astoria just came a day after Microsoft agreed to acquire Xamarin – a start that lets coders write apps in a single programming language and then customize the software for any major smartphone platform. Microsoft advised developers that instead of waiting for more progress on Astoria, they should now focus on Xamarin for creating cross–platform apps.

Microsoft will disclose more secrets about how Xamarin’s involvement will help things along at its Build conference in March.
