Online e-commerce sales can boost your small business!

The Internet has changed the world in almost every possible way, and e-commerce has revolutionised how business is done through shopping and selling. However, many small businesses, even knowing this, still haven’t realised just how large a growth spurt they can get by selling their goods and services online through e-commerce. 

E-commerce is an ever-changing business. It’s part of a digital world that’s been continuously evolving since its creation. Not only that, but we access the web through devices that are becoming more advanced and practical each and every day.

Here are three ways you can see growth in your small business today!

1. Reach new customers and sell more products online

Selling your products online can make a difference in your volume of sales. Many businesses with traditional brick and mortar retail shops are discovering this.

There are also advantages outside of merely extending your customer reach on your own. Through what is known as omni-channel selling, you can tap into online marketplaces such as our state-of-the-art e-commerce platform, MAKETE to reach a new consumer base.

2. Expand further with affiliate sales

One advantage of having an online e-commerce setup is being able to track who and where orders come from. You can create an affiliate program for customers, retail partners, and more to promote your products in exchange for a commission.

This method also works in perfect synergy with blogger outreach, which can grow your presence on social media as well.

3. Schedule appointments and sell time slots

The advantage of e-commerce and online selling doesn’t only apply to small businesses which provide products and goods. Businesses that provide services and consulting can also grow their business with a strong online presence.

You can sell and schedule appointments and bookings directly at the same time, saving you effort and headache to manage a separate calendar. You and your customers also have a better idea of when you will be available and can work together on the best time for you both.

As more and more people come to expect the convenience of shopping online for everything they spend money on, the businesses that cater to this mindset will thrive and flourish. 

E-commerce is a direct gateway to expanding and creating a more stable and cost-effective sales channel for your small business. You owe it to yourself and your business to explore which options can help take your small business to the next level.

“When e-commerce companies build scale, cost comes down. Companies that can handle scale and reduce costs over time will win. Margins will come from reducing costs over time and not by increasing prices. Technology is the answer at large scale”. – Sachin Bansal
