As the title not-so-subtly implies, I need your help with a homework project. For my E-Commerce class I need to design an online store of my choosing, and of course I chose a yarn store. I need to be able to describe everything about it - the navigation, how I'm going to attract customers, how I'm going to keep customers, how it looks (with a little bit of web design to go with it, though this is not a web design class), Is there any kind of online community? Search Engine Optimization... like...everything. And I have an unlimited budget for my imaginary store.
So hit me with it! What are all your favorites things about your favorite online stores of any kind? If you're an online yarn shopper, specifically, how do you like to shop for your yarn and knitting goodies? like, how are they organized on the store. What are your favorites stores and why do you keep going back to them? Hook me up with a link so I can check out what they look like!
I basically need to do this over the weekend. ANY help you can offer I would be SO GRATEFUL! Thank you, Online Hommies!
