    If I created a website for a mechanic shop or a barbershop, for example, that allowed booking and payment, would this be better than a non e-comm website with vanilla internet marketing? Better means, what would the real value be? Thank you

    You mean if you sold websites to clients? Depends on the client but if you develop the whole site look for a mid $xxx figure.

    Thanks for responding Steven. I was talking from the point of view of a business owner who owned the website.

    Well, that really depends on your niche. In the most cases, you can just buy a landing page template, customize it a little bit, add a contact form and that is more than enough. You'll spend not so much but with the correct marketing strategy, you'll get enough clients. But sometimes you need a complex eCommerce website with personal pages, payments, and booking.

    So let me get this straight...you want to design a landing page and generate leads for whatever service business that you are looking to generate and then sell off these leads to the vendor right?

    If this is the case then a one page site can do the job but that's just me!

    Totally depend upon the features you are going to offer. Because startup which help people in long run are always successful as compared to seasonal or trend base ideas. I would recommend you to create the final verision of your website on paper and then break it into phases which allow you to evaluate it much easier way.

    Sure, it's definitely better as it can boost sale effectively.

    It depends on your goal? If you give your 100% to promote mechanic shop or a barbershop, so you can earn from here also. But e-commerce is the different platform where you will sell a lot of products then the chance of conversion will be high in this section.

    But in both situations the marketing strategy will be different.
