5 reasons to start an online shop
Regardless of the industry in which your business belongs, it is certain that e-commerce is something that concerns you and that can take off the revenue of your company. Below we list five of the most basic reasons why you should start the online presence of your store and online sales of your products.
1. 1. Increase of online sales by 23%
So, here are the numbers:
In 2014 ecommerce retail sales peaked at $1.33 trillion worldwide.
In 2015 at $1.55 (16% increase) and in 2016 at $1.91 (23% increase).
As for the 2017, total turnover will probably exceed $2.35 (23% increase).
2. Sales 24/7
The location is one of the most important factors for the success of a store.
An online store, on the other hand, is not bound by such factors as the shipment of goods can be done even at the global level, with a single e-shop. At the same time, your store is open 24/7, every day of the year.
Creating an e-shop is a task that can be completed in a short (relatively) time, by choosing the right business partner, while the costs can remain quite reasonable compared to the new opportunities created for your business.
4. Constantly increasing number of potential customers
80% of Internet users have made at least one purchase online. As this figure is certain to grow over time, one can easily realize the potential of an online store and of the increased profits, a properly planned and implemented e-shop, can bring.
5. Larger number of sales per customer
When you have online customers, you can reach them in many different ways. Customers who have already bought something from you in the past, can receive newsletters and learn about new offers, discount coupons, etc. while retargeting apps (such as AdWords) can bring them back to your e-shop.
