OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE: Free Consultations for local businesses
If you own a business and have yet to tap into the online market, you’re definitely not sufficiently exploring your full earning potential. There was a time when the risks of transacting online were so high that people would just as soon make the effort to go and bring their business to a brick-and-mortar shop. However, technology has since progressed that those risks have been greatly mitigated, and we’ve now come to a point when shopping online has become as common as going to the mall.
Giant e-markets such as Amazon and eBay were certainly instrumental in evolving ecommerce into the thriving industry it is today. They have been the inspiration for many smaller online retail shops. Businesses all over the world were certainly not about to be left behind, and they’ve eagerly taken advantage of emerging technologies to expand their business into the Internet. Meanwhile, budding entrepreneurs have also found a more cost-effective and low-risk way of starting a business through ecommerce. Dubai trade experts concur with the general enthusiasm about online businesses and indicate the following reasons to explain why putting up an ecommerce site is highly beneficial:
Convenience – Where before your customers have to wait for free time or even just the right mood to go to your place of business, now they can simply go online and shop to their heart’s content. There’s no need for them to fix themselves up to be presentable; they can make their purchases in the comfort of their own home or during quick work breaks.
Ease and low cost of setup – An online shop is an automatic, well-oiled machine. It’s cheaper and easier to deploy and operate. Your overhead is certainly lower and your manpower needs may be satisfied by just one person, which could easily be you, thereby eliminating the need to hire employees.
Wider Reach – In the past, your transactions probably used to be limited to the customers in your own city. These days, doing business with people on the other side of the globe has been made possible through ecommerce. Dubai businesses can easily have customers from all corners of the world.
Higher Profit – The combination of low operation costs, wider market reach, and general ease of shopping results in higher earnings. If you already had a physical store to begin with, an ecommerce site definitely indicates an additional source of income, thereby boosting your revenue as well.
The times call for it. If you have a business and want to earn as much as you can from it, you need to bring it to the Internet.
