I was browsing through the net (like I usually do) & I can’t help but be fascinated by all the products and services I see flashing itself before me; from laptops to prom dresses, from extravagant travel promos to as minute as an eyelash curler. I mean you can get virtually everything you need on the Internet, literally.
Now I believe that it’s truly possible to live off without leaving the confines of the four walls of your room. eCommerce is what defines today and the future. With the ever-growing world of eCommerce, all you need to do bid and wait.
Looking at it through the consumer’s point of view, with eCommerce, purchasing is definitely made easier. Say goodbye to the hassle of going out and hopping from one store to another just for one thing. And did you know that you could actually get exactly the same thing cheaper ordering it through the Internet than when you buy it at a store? It’s because providers spend less in advertising & paying for the stall space therefore you only end up paying for the raw product and the shipment fees.
From the providers perspective, why choose eCommerce over the traditional proven way of Business? As mentioned, it’s cheaper to maintain especially on the advertisement side of things. Because almost everything you need to do to get your product out there is already available on the web. At the same time, it’s easier to customize and control. With business transacted through the web, you have total control over how your product is packaged and presented to the consumers.
Everything is definitely made easier, from management to sales. Monitoring of monthly sales, Product Inventory, & all those hard to manage paper works are easily created & monitored over the Computer. eCommerce is a great relief for starting out businesses who still can’t afford to lease space & pay for advertisement, because you can start your business even at the comfort of your home.
But products aren’t the only item which you can transact over the internet. During the past years, there has also been a growing trend of providing services over the web. There has been a surprising upsurge in the number of people vying to work over the internet. The rising number of people working through the Internet can be attributed to the pass events that took place all over the world- the Recession.
You can actually find Websites that offer jobs to freelancers. They give freelancers the chance to earn an extra living, some even making this trend a full-time job. Because people were getting laid off, the need to find work fast is what made eCommerce a necessity.
Large companies can actually save more when they hire freelancers over the Internet, since the jobs are for a per project basis. And since people aren’t becoming regulars, CEO’s don’t need to pay for benefits and the like, that’s why eCommerce that offers all sorts of services are making a wave.
It’s no question that eCommerce is a continuously growing industry.
