Ecommerce

Ecommerce

Like everything else in the digital age, business has started to move online. Even if the bulk of your day-to-day transactions happen person to person, there is at least a portion of revenue that can only be attained online. Why? Because e-commerce has the ability to create – and streamline – revenue from places outside of your specific region.

 

Even though e-commerce sales received a boost from the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing many Americans to remain in their homes, online shopping has increased exponentially year-over-year. Online sales are expected to generate over one trillion dollars worth of revenue in the year 2023, making up nearly 18% of all retail transactions nationwide.

The lesson is straightforward!

If your business isn’t online, you’re missing out on a massive revenue stream for your business.
