10 Reasons why e-Commerce is the future
In today’s age of retail madness, it is a confusing and tedious task to run a business (especially if you are new to the game). Putting up a store and building your hopes up on getting customers won’t be of much help, unless you are experienced when it comes to online business. Fear not, today, there is a way you can put your feet into the vast ocean of business without any former experience. E-commerce is the way of making your business go 100% digital. As mentioned above you don’t need experience to start up an e-commerce business, just a thirst for knowledge and learning. Using a digital medium can tap in more revenue than a regular storefront. Here are the 10 reasons why e-commerce is the future.
- LOW FINANCIAL COST
If you ever plan to set up a regular store, the cost of setting up a decent one will be pretty steep. Add up the utility services and management costs and you will find yourself in between bills and extra work. But in case of an e-commerce business, it’s pretty cheap to set it up. You will only need a limited budget to set up an e-commerce site.
As a bonus managing a website is way cheaper than managing a physical storefront. You wouldn’t have to worry about anything else other than attracting customers.
- 27/7 POTENTIAL INCOME.
Unlike physical stores an e-commerce site will always be open. This means your store will be open 24 hours every week. When you run an online store, it doesn’t matter at what time your customer makes a purchase, it could be in the afternoon or 5 AM in the morning. This means you will have a business working all day long maximizing your profits, especially across timelines.
- SCALING YOUR BUSINESS BECOMES EASY
The more successful a business gets, more you feel the need to scale up increases. The problem with physical retailers is that, to scale up it takes a lot of investment and effort and sometimes during the upgrade your business might stagnate.
This problem is absolutely eliminated by an online store, since it is online scaling up becomes easy and the only thing to worry about is that you should ensure that your marketing strategies should be optimized to the full capacity.
- DEMAND FOR NICHE PRODUCTS
Demand for niche products is rising like never before, and people prefer online stores a great deal more when it comes to particular niches. Having to serve to a specific niche has tonnes of benefits. Mainly it reduces your competition online, it will reduce your storage requirements, it helps in tapping in more customers who are willing to buy that specific product as they will trust your site more since it serves on that particular niche. The only thing you need to worry about is to make sure that the niche you chose for your business has a decent customer base.
- THE RISE OF MOBILE COMMERCE
In today’s digital era, everyone owns a mobile device. This surge in the user count has resulted in the increase of an e-shopping trend. A majority of your customers are easily accessible online than in person, hence, you will have a higher chance on having more people flow into your online business rather than a physical outlet. This increase in mobile usage has led to a new branch of mobile commerce, you can invest on mobile advertisements to tap into more customers.
- INSTANT PURCHASES
This is one of the few things that an e-commerce business allows you to do which a normal retailer cannot (to some extent). When you own an online market, your customers won’t know anything about the stock and demand. You can utilize this lack of knowledge of your customers in making them buy your products instantly. For example, you can put up a timer showing a limited offer on a particular product or you can put up words saying “limited stocks available” below some of your products. This makes the customer make the purchase immediately when they see the item or service.
- COMPARISON SHOPPING
When you own a physical store, you cannot go to each store and try to find out about their available deals and offs, but online you can compare your store with other stores and try to make your store a bit more attractive in appearance and deals than other stores.
This way you can provide the best deals and attract more consumers to your business.
- EASY TO SHOWCASE BEST SELLERS
If your store has a best seller, you can showcase them very easily on an e-commerce site. If a particular product is purchased frequently you will be pretty sure about how much of an increased demand that product is, and you can give present that product with some custom graphics to promote them in your store or maybe even give them a dedicated category at your website. This is pretty expensive on a physical store. This showcasing of highly demanded products also increases your brand image.
- GO INTERNATIONAL
From the first day of your e-commerce business you will be running an international business. You will get customers from all around the globe as the whole world is connected through the internet, of course this is just an option and you can still sell your goods in just one country, but the choice is yours. This one aspect of online commerce is enough to get you extra customers. In 2021 over 2.14 billion people are expected to buy goods online, just know that all these people are potential customers and is not a number you will ever expect to see at your local storefront.
- CHANGING ENVIRONMENT
We all know that these days going out to buy stuff is not a very safe option. A study revealed that more than 1/3rd of the consumers started purchasing online due to COVID 19. This has resulted in the boom of the e-commerce market and has made many people comfortable and trustworthy towards online shopping. This boost is also going to affect the far future of the online marketplaces in a positive way, so right now is the better time to invest on e-commerce than any other. Hence, we can say that e-commerce is the future of business.
