E-commerce is rising so it is important that you consider creating an online store for your business.
In the last article I gave you some ideas to help you promote your Internet business and one of them was the creation of an online store.
An online store is a great way to grow your business and take your products to places you never imagined.
The idea of creating an online store may seem very complicated, so it is important to mention that currently there are many options that make this process easier and faster.
For example, I have already told you about Pagevamp, a platform that turns your Facebook fanpage into a website to which you can also add an online store in a few minutes.
There are also other popular options like Prestashop, Shopify or WooCommerce, so you have no excuses!
Still not convinced that you need an online store? Here are 5 reasons that will surely change your mind:
1. Increase in sales
The reality is that by having an online store more people will see your products and therefore you will have the opportunity to make more sales.
The constant presence of your products on the web will generate more interest in them and you will also be generating more potential customers.
2. Availability 24/7
Traditional stores are limited by hours, while in an online store people can shop any day of the week and at any time.
Currently we live in a society that does not like to wait for anything, so what is better than giving people the possibility of buying your product at any time.
3. End geographical limitations
Can you imagine being able to sell your products in Europe or Asia?
With an online store this becomes a reality. Through the web our products can reach all parts of the world, regardless of distance.
4. Reach young consumers
Millennials (born between 1988-2000) can currently spend up to 12 hours a day connected to the Internet, and 79% of them shop online.
These data clearly demonstrate the importance of having an online store, especially if our products are aimed at young consumers.
5. Constant feedback
Finally, an online store gives us the possibility of knowing the opinions of our consumers in a direct and immediate way.
This feedback will help us improve our products and services which will improve our business in the long term.
These are just some of the reasons why you should consider creating an online store, but there are many more. Technology advances more and more and it is important that we advance with it so we’re not left behid!
An online store is a great way to keep our business active in the digital age.
