To Be or Not to Be...Online
You may be wondering if an eCommerce platform is necessary these day's. The short and sweet answer is "yes". If you aren't present online, your customers may be moving on. We want to share 3 reasons why you should consider creating an online platform.
Make $$$ Online
Creating an online store will definitely open up a whole new opportunity to make money. You're now giving your customers the tools to interact with you in more ways than one. And given the fact that we all spend way too much time on our phones these days (yes, we know you get the screen time notifications too) this platform will allow people to see and shop from the convenience of their couch. Check out these staggering stats from eHopper.com:
"Seniors, Baby Boomers, and Gen X are ‘adding to cart,’ as well. 56% of Gen X prefer to search and purchase on eCommerce sites rather than in-store; 41% of baby boomers and even 28% of seniors prefer online to offline shopping."
Making It Easy for the Consumer
Not only will it be easy for consumers to shop, you are allowing your customers to check necessary information about your stores too! If people do want to venture out, they can easily check to see hours of operation, your address, phone number, promotions, etc!
Increase Brand Awareness
Branding is everything these days and the more people see you on various platforms the more confident they feel when shopping at your store or website. And think about it, the more people who see you and ultimately have an experience with you the more people will share your site (or post). This will absolutely drive brand awareness and sales!
