Best wishes on your new business venture, Ann and Dan

Our Husaberg community needs just such a resource.

One suggestion:

You might consider allowing guests to register on your site without asking for all of their personal information such as address and phone. You do of course need this in order to process a sale, but "browsers" (the shopping kind, not the web page kind) might be reluctant to fill out the whole form. Simple email and password registration would allow you to reach a greater number of visitors.

Cheers, and

Brett Saunders

Re: Husabergstore.com

Hi sir,

There's nothing to be gained by registering unless you are going to purchase something. That would be the only reason for registering on a dedicated e-commerce site. Anonymous browsers see the same thing as registered users, so if people don't want to provide their info, it doesn't hurt their browsing experience.

thanks,

Re: Husabergstore.com

I skip a lot of sites because of registry requirements.
There are plenty of others easily accessible.

Hi Tim,

If you can find an e-commerce site that will sell and ship you parts without knowing any of your persoanl information like name and address, I'll look into it.

thanks,

Guys, you are pains. Is this Internet thing new to you or what?

Shopping carts will always ask you for your personal information unless you know how to populate a database telephatically, in which case, please PM me, I got work for you.

Two words: Mailing List

We can agree to disagree on this one, of course Json.

But online selling is all about marketing, and an opt-in mailing list is a powerful marketing tool. Getting visitors to make their initial purchase from a site is the largest obstacle. If you can get them to return to the site via an email newsletter, even if they do not buy on their first visit, the likelihood of eventually getting an order increases. And of course, it's a lot easier to get a user name and email address out of someone who is not buying than it is to get full contact info like name, address, phone, etc.


Cheers,

Brett Saunders

If you feel that you can't trust a site with your address & phone number, then why would you purchase anything from them promoted in a newsletter? You'd then have to give them your information, which you've already stated you don't trust them with. Honest question, not rhetorical. I'm curious as to your thoughts on this.

I wouldn't even question your thoughts if the info being discussed were CC/payment info, but we're talking DOB(for password retrieval), address and phone number. This is not protected or even private info. All of this is readily available through white/yellow pages on the net for over 95% of the people out there.

Let me know your thoughts on the above sir.

thanks,

[EDIT] Even with my statement to the contrary, this post still sounds like a smart assed remark, which I didn't intend. I'm not savvy w/business tips and tricks, and I'm just wondering what you're thinking. Are you saying that there is a time when it becomes OK to trade your security? Like if the oil filter is 5 bucks, then you'd rather not give them your information, but if you read in a newsletter that it's 2.50, then you'll risk them stealing your identity? Stupid analagy, but change it to any part at any price. Is that the jist of it? Like an online version of "Let's make a deal"?[/EDIT]

Re: Husabergstore.com

Do you use the "discount cards" at the grocery stores? Safeway, the Kroger group, Albertson's? You think they give you a discount because they like you? They actually know who you are and they use this gimmick to know what you're shopping to guess your demographics (Lots of diapers? you have a baby! Domestic beer? Blue collar. Foreign wine? White collar. Lots of meat, no veggies? You're a Con. No meat, lots of veggies? You're a Lib. etc...) and then you get junk mail tailored to your lifestyle.

Everybody sells your list. Credit cards? You bet they sell your name. So does the bank, so do the credit bureaus...!

Heck, I would hate to get some Husaberg junk mail on top of that.

Re: Husabergstore.com

Hence, why I said it served no purpose to register at the site unless you were going to purchase from them.

If you can't trust a site not to send you Husaberg related junk mail, then you won't trust them when it comes time to purchase from them either, in which case, I wouldn't want you as a consumer, because as my demographics & statistics would tell me, you were a conspiracist with deluded visions of grandeur who thought that a bike shop a couple of states away found your personal information so valuable and intriguing, that they wanted to send you a flyer on the latest spark plug.
