"Build a business, not a website."
At ECommerce Partners, our passion is building successful businesses online. Our approach differs from most other agencies in that we view the underlying technologies we offer as mere tools of the trade. Instead, the value we deliver to our clients can be measured in business terms, including superior ROI, increased revenue and higher traffic.

We swear by our process because it works! Successful & advanced ecommerce solutions require clear goals, precise planning, and a winning strategy. ECommerce Partners has created a unique methodology for our ecommerce services called the Ecommerce Requirements Specification (ERS) that leverages our extensive industry expertise to help you achieve lasting success. The below steps outline it in a nutshell.
The first step in our process is to understand your product, your industry, your value proposition, as well as the target audiences and your competitive environment. This is done by performing intensive research, data-collection and analysis.
Next we plan how to satisfy all the needs and requirements of each potential target audience through use of different personas by user segment. This ensures the maximum range of qualified traffic and conversion.
Finally we create a blueprint and roadmap that clearly outline the complete project scope and the implementation methods. This benefits the client by illustrating the final product and provides clear instructions for the implementation team.
The complete deliverables of the ERS include Creative Requirements, Functional Requirements, SEO Requirements, Search Requirements, Content Requirements and Technical Requirements. It also contains the functional design of information architecture wireframes, sitemaps and process flows and recommends to what extent custom development and 3rd party applications will be necessary during implementation, or whether standard ecommerce website tools could suffice.
The ERS is a stand-alone deliverable that can guide development by either ECommerce Partners or a 3rd party team. If you choose ECommerce Partners, the implementation phase will begin, which we term the Ecommerce Development Module (EDM).
The below chart illustrates the ERS and the EDM processes. For more information, see the Ecommerce Strategy Section.
