When people ask me what the attraction I see in e-commerce is, I am quick to tell them Freedom! What I get in internet business is the freedom from the traditional way we do business. If you are reading this, my good guess is that you want freedom too and I will tell you four other reasons you should think e-commerce for your business.
E-commerce is a short form of electronic commerce. It is a way of doing business on the internet where you have access to customers from across the world. Not only that you have access to customers globally, you too can tend to your business from anywhere around the world without physical location limitation. Here are four other reasons to go e-commerce:
Unlimited access to customers
A good reason to sell is the availability of clients. Where the market is, you have the likelihood of high sales and business prosperity. E-commerce not only exposes you to potential customers in your locality, but you can also sell anywhere around the world even at the remote end of the world. Anywhere where people can access the internet, you can have your customers.
Availability of skilled and affordable workforce
In the business world today, many US companies employ their employees from outside the US thanks to e-commerce. In the brick and mortar world, you are limited to your local workforce unless you are ready to bear the cost of moving skilled labor from another country at a huge cost to your business. Not only you are location limited, but the law also requires prospective staff to get necessary travel documents and work permits which do not come easy as security considerations are needed to determine if the staffer will be cleared to immigrate into the country to work for you.
Convenient business transaction between sellers and buyers
When you locate your business online, and you have all necessary e-commerce tools in place, buy and selling becomes easier than you can get with brick and mortar business. Your customers don’t have to hurry because you will be closing for the day or because it will be weekend and store will close to customers. You too can go about your other activities without having to close your store. In an e-commerce situation, businesses are open 24/7.
Maximize your potentials
A business in Dallas can serve the local community as well as serve customers from the far end of the world. Ecommerce allows you to sell wide-ranging products without restricting you to a particular product because to every locality you serve; you can offer them a unique product for their territory.
Ecommerce allows you to up-sell on products you do not specialize in and collaborate with other online business who offer drop ship services to sell to your clients and make extra income without lifting a finger in the buying and selling process.
