Sascha Deri from Alternative Energy Store

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

Shaun Ryan, CEO of SLI Systems talks to Sascha Deri from Alternative Energy Store (www.altestore.com).

Shaun and Sascha discuss the value for ecommerce businesses in supporting the entire lifecycle of customer needs – from education to installation – thereby building long-lasting relationships with customers.

AltEstore provides renewable energy products such as solar panels and efficient batteries. The company works hard to educate customers about the benefits of renewable enery, and how to install and maintain the systems they buy from AltEStore.

Deri notes that in a tough economic climate, ecommerce businesses that simply provide products will find it difficult to engage customers. AltEstore’s ecommerce site has gradually added instructional videos and articles under a “learn” tab on the site, encouraging visitors to the get the most out of their purchases from the company.
