If you have not got an ecommerce website you have probably asked this question, maybe you are prolonging the inevitable for some reason. Whatever your reasons, the answer is a resounding "YES!"
Have you ever asked yourself why customers actually want to shop online? This infographic below will give you a better overview of what is going through the mind of a current consumer in 2014.
Giving your customers the option of visiting both your retail shop or purchasing online will remove any doubts as to why they shouldn't shop with you.
Having an ecommerce website means customers can purchase your products whenever they want and wherever they are. By not having an ecommerce website in place then you are simply applying a restriction to your own profits.
You only have to go back a few years. Shops were open 9am-5pm (late on a Thursday if you lived in a bigger town). Therefore, if you worked in an office you had to do your shopping on a Saturday, with the other thousands of shoppers like you.
These days are long since past. We see shoppers buying online via mobile devices on the train, whilst wathching their favourite TV programme and it won't be long before they are ordering whilst on an aeroplane.
Now it the time to think about getting an ecommerce for your business.
Here are some stats to get you thinking:
- Over 80% of the online population have used the internet to purchase something
- Over 50% of the online population are regular shoppers online
- Europe is the second highest grossing ecommerce sales region (34%)
Now that you know what ecommerce is and why it can be so vital to your success, you can’t ignore its power. Give your business the chance to reach its full potential by getting started with ecommerce today!
