The continued growth of the ecommerce industry is something that cannot be overlooked by any business, no matter how big or small. Being online is an integral part of our lives - even more so now with the world transitioning into a new normal due to this pandemic. From groceries to medicines, apparels, gadgets, fashion accessories or sports equipment, almost everything is available online.
With our fast-paced lifestyle, the speed, convenience and ease of shopping that online shopping provides remains unmatched. If you check on any general statistics online, you will see the upward spike in the growth of online sales from 2015 to today. Ecommerce is still emerging, and the trend will only grow with years to come.
With the number of people having access to the internet on the rise, the shift from bricks and mortar retail to online shopping is naturally expected to rise. And with the current radical changes in the economy, the first upward curve is expected to be seen by 2022.
Although the debate about physical stores v/s online stores remains as solid as ever, the innovative ways of showcasing your products online can entice many. Videos are at the forefront when it comes to marketing your online business. Social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Snapchat etc bring in that little semblance of a personal touch that many feel online shopping lacks.
There are online communities and groups that you get to be a part of to share ideas and get to know about the nitty-gritty of the products that you are looking at. These are things that are quickly available on the ecommerce platforms.
What does all this mean? This means that the opportunities available are huge for new ecommerce brands to secure a strong foothold within the emerging markets. And what do you need for this? A strong online presence! A website is essential if you are a set brick and mortar business or an emerging one. The exposure that you need can be achieved only through the digital medium!
