Can you imagine waking up and feeling confident and assured that your digital presence is being handled and managed by a pro? However, this needn’t be a fantasy; it can be a reality with the help of an eCommerce Assistant.
Let’s look at some of the benefits of E-Commerce versus a traditional shop. E-Commerce is your online business. Whatever your product offering is, be it physical goods or services, when an exchange for these goods and, or services take place over the internet, you’re a E-commerce business, it’s that simple.
Some benefits: Compared to a more traditional shop or office are there are no geographical limits. This is huge, for obvious reasons. Everything is a click away on the international highway of the world wide web. You’re open 24/7 – 365 days a year. No constraints to high street / mall / office opening and closing times. Additionally, if your overheads are significantly lower, this means higher profits for you and your shareholders. There is no travel time or travel costs to factor in… they simply don’t exist. And, finally, and this one is a doozy, if we are ever faced with another pandemic and lock-down, your business doesn’t need to wither away… it can still be accessible and relevant and very much in operation!
