Today the Internet has reached every nook and corner of the world. Millions of businesses are online, and many of them have even opened their online stores selling their products and services to worldwide buyers. More than $387 billion dollars worth of trade is now being done online, and it is increasing. The potential of ecommerce is substantial. There are many more benefits of ecommerce for companies:
- Overcome Geographical Limitations – With a brick and mortar store, owners can service only a limited geographical area. With ecommerce, the world is an open marketplace. Today ecommerce is even being done on mobile phones. So, opportunities are limitless.
- Get new customers with more online visibility - Physical retail depends on relationships and branding. In addition to these two factors, online retail also depends on search engines. So with SEO (search engine optimization) owners can increase online visibility, leading to higher traffic and sales. In fact, owners can even rule their niche.
- Lower operating costs - The best thing about ecommerce is lower operating costs for businesses, which owners can pass on to their customers, leading to more sales and more profits.
- Offer deals, coupons, and bargains - Businesses can offer deals and coupons to customers of a specific geographic area as a part of business strategy to grow sales.
- Provide abundant information - There are some limitations on the amount of information owners can provide at a physical store because customers may need information across product lines. Websites can provide extensive information to customers, which will help in increasing sales.
- Sell all the time - Physical stores have limited service times, but ecommerce stores are open on 24/7 basis, 365 days a year. This means, more sales and more profits.
- Social media – Rising social media popularity means businesses can use this medium to grow their online sales without spending a dime. Already, top Fortune 500 companies are using this medium to increase interaction with customers and grow their business.
- Create markets for niche products - Sellers and buyers of niche products can find it cumbersome to locate each other in this world. But this is now possible online, and it creates a world of opportunities for businesses.
