With a dazzling array of features TimberShops offers the full service to enable you to effectively create an online purchasing environment that works for you the trader.
Timber-On-Line will load up your products, images, prices and market the website and your products throughout your sales region. We will also ensure that your site is protected and secure.
We have extensive experience of local sales services and can effectively place your online shop within a small or large geographical area. This means that your products are targeted towards your local marketplace and not UK wide...unless of course you want to sell uk wide and if the case we can market your store to achieve that.
With more and more people now ordering online there is now no reason not to have an online presence. The best way to achieve this is to set up your website through experts in the field of Timber Shops.
Not being techniologically minded is now no longer a barrier either as we do all the hard work for you and provide you with extensive information and help throughout your website setup and marketing.
It is in our interests to make your site as successful as possible, we do not tie any of our Merchant partners into long term agreements, if it is not working for them as they would like all we ask is that they give 1 months notice to quit and to date we have not had any Merchant decide to leave. Which is why we also provide an extensive analysis service with regular reports to show how your site is doing, where it is appearing and where your visitors are coming from.
This more targeted approach leads to greater local traffic and more sales.
Most sales generated by the website result in phone or visit orders as many visitors like to discuss their requirements direct with your sales staff, but find the website usefull in selecting the type and sizes of timber they need. On average most sales generated by the website are actually ordered offline over the telephone or in your premises. Our experience shows that the sales split is usually 70:30 offline to online orders, historically we have been able to demonstarte that most of these sales would not have occurred without the website being there in the first place.
TimberShops is a low cost, easy start website service that allows you to set up your online presence with minimum risk and the knowledge that you can cancel with 1 months notice.
We are confident that we can generate traffic to your site quickly and start you on the road to selling online painlessly and with maximum help with minimum fuss.
We get told many reasons why people wihtin the Timber Trade don't feel they need a TimberShop, but none of the arguments stack up against the figures.
