Make More Money"Faced with an unprecedented slowdown in the economy and ever-demanding consumers, retailers are turning to technology to find new ways to cut costs, add incremental revenue, and strengthen consumer relationships. The typical US retailer reinvests 4.3% of revenues in technologies like an on-line store and shopping cart technology. This technology investment gives retailers the biggest bang for the buck!" (Forrester's Marketing Research)

ROI (return on investment) is the measuring stick for all marketing. Stop wasting money on poor advertising. Get more new customers to bring in more profitable sales and increase your customer service with an on-line store..

Sample On-Line Store ROI
Small Business Annual Gross Sales: $350,000
On-line Store Average Annual Increase in Sales by 10%: $35,000
CGOS* assuming a 35% GPM:** -$22,750
Gross Profit is: $12,250
First Year Investment in your On-line Store:*** $ 1,449
Your ROI (return on investment) is: 8.45 to 1
You invested $1,449 to get $12,250 (8.45 x 1,449 = $12,244 or a 8.45 to 1 return)

The typical US retailer reinvests 4.3% of revenues in all technologies annually, such as CRM (customer relationship management), and shopping cart technology or $15,050 annually in this example. This investment is only 11% of the average technology budget, but gives you a measurable return on your investment.
