E-Commerce Business Idea Development

Introduction

This part of the course discusses how to build e-commerce concepts from market segmentation and targeting to mining problems and customer discovery interviews in order to develop a viable idea. With the numerous guides available in the internet on how to start an e-commerce business, the challenge for entrepreneurs is to come up with a good e-commerce business idea and the development of it until it can be worthy of an investment.

9 out of 10 businesses fail to sustain operations after a year of its inception. One of the reasons that are often overlooked is the concept entrepreneurs are trying to pursue. Many attribute the failure to succeed how well the e-commerce pillars are set up. However, a bad e-commerce idea may well set up an entrepreneur to failure.

Market Segmentation

Market segmentation is classifying customers into groups via attributes and characteristics that are critical to your business. Market segmentation is important in any industry – e-commerce or traditional it may be – because it enables businesses to precisely know how to reach a group of customers with specific needs and wants.

Every good e-commerce business starts with a target market in mind. It is not the creation of a market segment but the identification of the best ones for a better chance of building the next big thing. By using market segmentation, an e-commerce business can narrow its options and layout specific paths to have more probability of success.
