January 2022: eCommerce

At December meeting of the Colorado Chapter of ASDP, we learned what to ask ourselves when starting an eCommerce (web-based) business.  Speaker Bethany Siegler, from UniqueThink (https://uniquethink.com), spoke about the various topics that people tend to forget and topics that need to consider before choosing the web site host, site developer, and software to run the site. 

Bethany divided her talk into seven sections: Product, Workflow, Payments, Shipping, Marketing, Reporting, and Final thoughts. Bethany asked us an hour’s worth of questions on these topics and wrapped up by telling us to write our answers clearly and concisely, because anything we forget could be out-of-scope with the web site development and therefore cost more or even require rethinking the whole project.
