More and more major companies that started out with traditional brick-and-mortar stores are expanding their business online. There are even new companies that focus purely on ecommerce, with a few temporary, pop-up stores here and there. Whether you’re just starting out with a passion project or are already established in the industry, hosting your business online is looking like a necessary step if you want to keep up with the competition these days. But if you’re not convinced yet, here are a few more reasons on why you should look into building your own ecommerce store.
#1 Wider reach
Imagine this: your business, available to anybody in the world with an internet connection and computer or smartphone. Through online advertisements and clever marketing, ecommerce can help you reach potential customers who otherwise would have never been able to access your products if you just had one or a few shops in a certain area.
Shopping takes time and energy, two things a lot of people who work 9 to 5 jobs don’t have much to spare. Thanks to the internet and the rise of ecommerce, it’s so much easier for consumers to find and buy the products they need.
It’s also easier on the business owner (you) in terms of initial investment. There’s no need to put down a ton of capital to erect a physical store or rent a space, hire staff to manage it, etc. Saving all that money means you can lower your markup, which in turn leads to lower product prices, thus encouraging more people to choose your business over others.
Lastly, ecommerce offers you the opportunity to earn without actively working. Even as you sleep, customers from anywhere in the world can place an order for your goods.
