e-commerce

The year is coming to a close and it’s safe to say that it has been a whirlwind of ups and downs for the world of E-commerce.

In a span of almost 365 days, both small and big businesses have had to shake things up as the landscape which we know it, moved even further into the digital space.

In some of our previous posts, we’ve emphasised the need for a quick transition from physical to the online platform, that is e-commerce. According to QuantumMetric, the e-commerce industry conversion rates grew up to 8.8% in February alone and is still growing fast.

The sudden shift from a physical store to a digital presence has transformed e-commerce as an industry – and if you’re not online in 2021, you’ll be missing out on a massive amount of revenue!

And that’s what we’re here for! We want to help you understand this shift and what you will have to do in 2021 to benefit from the growing land of e-commerce.

How does this affect your business and marketing strategies?

The massive increase in e-commerce sales this year has meant a huge increase in the amount of advertising online, making this a very competitive space. Despite this, here are some of our tips to keep you in your A-Game:

Understand your audience: E-commerce

What are your products all about? How will your products help your potential customers, or will it solve a problem that they have or they might have in the future? These are all questions you need to be asking yourself to best communicate with potential customers online.

Get up to speed with platform updates: E-commerce
