Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great "set up" tips here. We agree. Magento has no "default" bad SEO / SEM settings as some "shopping carts" do. Some of these tips were new to us and they are easy to implement / understand.

CampSaver: Cool "Store Within A Store" Concept | Ecom Revolution | Scoop.it

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Friends showed me this cool use of tabs to create "stores within a store" a bit ago. We love the idea of one database and multiple stores (though that is not as easy as it should be). We also love the idea of dedicated "silos" that can address marketing archetypes and personas.

16 New & Cool Ecommerce Templates For Usual Suspects (Magento, Shopify, ZenCart) via @WebDesignOrg

16 New & Cool Ecommerce Templates For Usual Suspects (Magento, Shopify, ZenCart) via  @WebDesignOrg | Ecom Revolution | Scoop.it
If you've been looking for a perfect web template for an on-line retail business you came to the right place, because today I'm gonna show you 16 of the newest and coolest e-commerce website templates.


Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

For some reason ecommerce templates have not kept up with content marketing templates in quality, variety or availability. We are thinking of creating one at our startup Curagami (http://www.Curagami.com ) for just that reason (that we can't find good ones), but here are 16 new ones and some aren't horrible (lol). Our fav = ZenCart because we like CTAs next to heroes.

Best eCommerce Platform: Magneto, Shopify, Volusion, BigCommerce?

Discover the best ecommerce platforms from our roundup of the top four ecommerce solutions in the market.
Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Great post about the Goodl and Bad associated with each ecommerce platofrm. Very detailed and accurate. I've used Shopify and Magento. I found Magento to be powerful but SLOW. We create Magento ecommerce websites at Atlantic BT and they must be served correclty or they too are slow. 

Shopify clearly benefits Shopify, but wrestling benefit out fo their platform for yourself is a differnet challenge entirely.

Best SEO Ecommerce Platforms

Best SEO Ecommerce Platforms | Ecom Revolution | Scoop.it

How to Choose the Best E commerce Platform for SEO. An independent, comparative study of all the most popular E-commerce platforms in respect of SEO.

Marty Note
Wow, this is an exhaustive "complete guide" to SEO for ecom. I agree with the ranks their exhaustive research creates with a single caveat. I hate platform ecoms like Shopify and Volusion.

Both work great UNTIL you need to scale and then the limitations of such a template and community serving become clear. That said, for companies just starting or below $5M in annual sales Shopify would be a great place to start.

Magento is complicated and intense. No need to go there until you can pay for it with money and expertise. Great post.

Trending Ecommerce Keywords

Trending Ecommerce Keywords | Ecom Revolution | Scoop.it

Ecommerce Trending
Thought this Google Trends chart was interesting. Pulled the chart to support a 2014 plan to create a new suite of publisher tools and an expansion of how merchants can profitably use crowdfunding and crowdsourcing to drive profits up and costs down.

When I see a chart like green line representing crowdfunding it is a starting gun confirming a trend. Magento being large and in charge doesn't surprise me. Magento is such a powerful open source ecom solution that they are all but rollling up the space.

This chart does look differnet for USA only (Magento isn't as strong here as in Europe). Shopify and Volusion's trends are interesting too. I've used Magento Go, Shopify and Volusion and prefer Shopify for UI simplicity, Magento for ecommerce power and haven't gotten deep enough in Volusion to have an opinion.

ANY GO option where you use their templates, business rules and platform favors the platform provider now and forever, so be aware if you are planning to do $1M or more in online sales "GO" options won't work well.

If you are NOT planing to scale your website into more than a million in sales a GO option may be just the perfect low cost ecommerce option. Here is my Magento Go Store to sell my stuff to help fund our Story of Cancer Foundation:

Good Time For A Magento Checkup
Magento is planing an extensive update and transitioning older versions o the software to newer promies to be a true pain in the you know where. Atlantic BT (http://www.atlanticbt.com ) recommends consulting a guide as transitions of this magnitude can cause issues.

Good time to have someone you trust look under your Magento HOOD and know how transition will impact your ecommerce website.
