WooCommerce and why is is so great!
Here at new wave media design we love WooCommerce and it is our go to tool for creating Ecommerce sites for our customers. The sheer amount of extensibility and the solid framework that WooCommerce is built upon makes it an ace in the hole for any scale Ecommerce project. WooCommerce is an open source Ecommerce plugin brought to you by the fine folks at WooThemes. WooCommerce was introduced into the WordPress Ecommerce space in 2011 and has grown exponentially since its inception clocking in at over 1.1 million downloads at the time I am writing this post.
The growing Ecommerce space.
The Ecommerce market is growing significantly and if you have a product to sell, selling it online could be your best bet to marketing your product to an enormous worldwide customer base. In 2012, Ecommerce had a healthy 14.8 percent growth rate over the 2011 stats, easily eclipsing the total retail sales growth rate of 5.3 percent. By 2017, the Internet will account for ten percent of all U.S. retail sales when online sales will reach $370 billion, up from $231 billion this year, according to Forrester Research.
So what does all this mean?
Having an online presence is huge and every business big or small should have a web presence to extend their reach and their customer base. WooCommerce helps us provide Ecommerce functionality that is easy to use, secure, and has a vast array of extensions that can be added to its core to make WooCommerce work for you! So if you are a business that is thinking about selling online, contact us and we will set you up with an awesome WordPress powered, WooCommerce equipped website that will make your customers happy and your competitors jealous.
