  • You use a company that creates a website for you that is sub standard or very expensive
  • You use poor quality product images and your content is poorly written
  • Your checkout process is difficult and customers do not complete the purchase process
  • Your website doesnt have search engine optimization
  • You use a search engine optimization or social networking/marketing company that wastes your advertising/marketing budget
  • Your customer service for pre and after sales is not very good
  • Your shipping charges are high
  • Customers feel that there is no reason to return to your website in the future
