Internet buying soars through innovative website
As gardening and home improvements reach record levels of popularity, a website making it easy to buy conservatories is becoming a major e-commerce success and setting a new trend in internet shopping.
Conservatories Online, at www.conservatoriesonline.com, was created by UK-based eBuilders to make life easier for people to shop around in the highly competitive conservatory market. The website provides comprehensive information about conservatory designs, regulations and local suppliers, and will automatically obtain three local competitive quotes for potential buyers.
Conservatory companies, quick to see its huge potential for boosting sales, have joined the site to make it a huge resource of contacts and information throughout the UK and USA.
UK residents from Scotland to the West Country have used the website to buy their conservatories, and in the US a major conservatory retailer won business worth over $100,000 through the website in the first two months.
Barry Dunlop, managing director of eBuilders, said: “The success of the website confirms that this is a great way to choose and buy conservatories, sunrooms and gardenrooms. The site provides an excellent service for potential buyers – supplying local competitive quotes which the customer can consider in comfort and without any pressure.”
Conservatoriesonline includes an extensive picture gallery of conservatory designs and a huge amount of independent information about conservatories and sunrooms, enabling people to get expert guidance and ideas with maximum convenience.
The website includes a comprehensive ‘buyers guide’ and an easy-to-use quotation form as well as advice on how to rate suppliers. There is even a facility to send questions to a team of independent experts.
“When we launched the site some people doubted whether there would be much interest,” said Mr Dunlop. “They said conservatories just weren’t the sort of product people would want to buy through the internet.
“But this is really just a highly convenient information source and an anonymous way of obtaining competitive quotes from local suppliers – once the choice is made the actual dealings are between the customer and supplier in the usual way.
“It’s a great combination of the new and the traditional – using the power of internet technology to help the buyer choose, but keeping the personal relationship and individual customer service once the selection is made.”
