value added services

Many operators still view and use e-commerce platforms only as distribution channels. The ability to tap the full potential of the website by integrating it into their own marketing mix generally remains unexploited especially in the area of product policies. Product policies include all decisions that are relevant to the features of the product. These include the offer and presentation of the product portfolio, design and packaging as well as the often forgotten product-related services.

Crowdsourcing – the quick way to generate value-added services for your website

In the area of product policy, one can make the best possible use of every web presence by supplying customers and interested persons with additional services in the form of supplementary product information and entertainment options. The supplementary services offered on the web represent additional value to the customer, show high customer orientation as well as the expert competence of the provider and therefore create competitive advantages over competitors.
