The B2B shop: special solutions for special requirements
A B2B shop has particular stipulations and therefore requires special solutions. In contrast to B2C e-commerce, complexer products and services are often offered. Special mechanisms are required to distribute the offerings. Marketing is addressed to decision makers, not end consumers. iMi digital is the ideal partner for your B2B project due to our many years of experience and expertise in the field of B2B webshops. Let us competently accompany you through the process.
1. Development of an effective online strategy for your special B2B offering
A detailed online strategy should be developed at the start. Especially for a B2B shop, specific issues need to be considered because the business entails special conditions: is a webshop worthwhile for you in B2B? We will evaluate your opportunities and set up an effective business plan for you. In addition, the technical specifications and content of the webshop need to be planned:
- What should be offered on the web shop?
- What features should the webshop have and how can they be technically implemented?
- How should the offer be presented?
- What options are there to market the product effectively?
We jointly resolve these issues and summarize them in a sound concept
2. Technical implementation of the B2B shop according to the special requirements of your business
When the concept is completed, our certified Magento team develops the B2B shop. With more than 25% market share, Magento is the clear market leader in shop systems.
