Should I Sell Diamonds Cheaper On my Website Than I do in the Store?

From our research, we've found it's best to keep price your diamonds the same whether it's in your store or on your website. Your website is designed to be an extension of your store and built to drive traffic to you. Even in the technology-driven age we live in, we've found that 90% of your customers will prefer to deal with you face-to-face in the store than purchase sight unseen online.

How Much Business Can I Expect From my E-Commerce Website?

The most recent statistics have shown that online jewelry sales amount to about 4% of total jewelry industry sales. You should expect your website to about the same level of volume. As an example, if you do $1 million in sales, you should expect about $40,000 of that to come your website and that trend should grow each year. The Bluestar application is set to build your business above and beyond that 4% mark though. We will keep you ahead of the curve in bringing traffic to your site through individually created SEO and SMO optimization. Click Here to Contact us for more information.

What if I Already have a Website?

No problem. We prefer to have a Blue Star applications site built for you, but we incorporate images and information from your existing site. This is especially true if you haven't updated your site in a long time and the information is old. The older your domain name, the better it will rank in any of the search engines. As an alternative, if you have a site that is new and current, we are able to add a "Shop Online" button that will link you to a new site provided by Blue Star Applications. It would be hosted under a domain name similar to your original domain. Down the road, the traffic can be merged to one e-commerce website if desired. Click Here to Contact us for more information.

What Good is a Great Website if no One knows it's there? How Will People Find my Website?
