In current circumstances, with each and every high street shut, it is becoming more and more crucial that if your business can offer services online, then it should.
So why not spend your time now, understanding what you need to succeed online?
Even as a beginner in eCommerce, the tools and resources are all laid out for you. All you need is a desire to succeed. Here are some more reasons why shouldn’t wait to get your business selling online:
Earn while you sleep
One of the most important benefits that businesses with an eCommerce website can enjoy is 24/7/365 store opening times. This allows you to increase your sales by boosting the number of orders you can take per day. However, it is also beneficial for customers as they can purchase products whenever they want no matter whether it is early morning or the middle of the night. So unlike a physical store, you can still earn even while you sleep.
The UK has the third biggest eCommerce Market
Despite being only the eighth largest in terms of total retail sales, the UK is the third-largest eCommerce market due to a high volume of digital buyers. By 2021, worldwide retail eCommerce sales are expected to reach $4.9 trillion. (Shopify Plus, 2019) So don't you want to be a part of it?
One of the most tangible benefits of eCommerce is the lowered cost. Here are some of the ways that costs can be reduced with eCommerce:
- Advertising and Marketing: Organic search engine traffic, pay-per-click, and social media traffic are some of the advertising channels that can be cost-effective.
- Personnel: The automation of checkout, billing, payments, inventory management, and other operational processes lowers the number of employees required to run an eCommerce setup.
- Real Estate: This one is a no-brainer. An eCommerce merchant does not need a prominent physical location, however, if you need to keep open for physical business, then you already have another revenue stream to help with the building costs.
