One thing is SURE. Stats and Numbers don’t lie!
It’s pretty easy to see why smart marketers like you are doing what they can to get their own lucrative eCom business up and running online without any complications or frustrations…
Here are five reasons to start your ecommerce business today.
1. Ecommerce is a trillion-dollar industry… and it’s growing daily.
When choosing a business model, it’s important to study trends to ensure the market you’re getting into is a growing and profitable one.
And the stats suggest that ecommerce ticks both boxes, making it an ideal choice for entrepreneurs looking to start a new business or those that are looking to create an additional online income stream.
By the end of 2019, it is estimated that the ecommerce industry will be worth a staggering $2.5 trillion. If you want to get into ecommerce, there really has never been a better time.
2. It’s quick and easy to get up and running.
Because ecommerce is a proven business model, there are plenty of tools and resources on the web to help you get set up ASAP. Even if you’re a complete beginner, you can have your ecommerce business online within just a few hours, thanks to Shopify, woocomerce and Uduala.
Shopify powers over 300,000 online stores and handles everything from marketing and payments, to secure checkout and shipping.
3. Over 80% of the US population shops online.
Let’s face it, who doesn’t shop online these days?
Not only is it easier and more convenient to shop online, but 50% of shoppers have purchased more than once.
And as mobile ecommerce takes center stage as the leading way to convert customers, this number will continue to grow by leaps and bounds.
The biggest challenge ecommerce business owners face is building trust and credibility with leads and customers.
From developing an attractive store that’s easy to navigate, to creating valuable content that helps your target audience, there are many effective ways to build a loyal following.
4. You can earn money while you sleep.
For brick-and-mortar businesses, location is obviously of paramount importance. After all, if you don’t have passing trade, you don’t have a business.
But with an ecommerce business, you’re not limited to a physical location. You can set up your storefront at your own domain name and sell your products globally, 24/7.
This makes ecommerce one of the only business models that can literally make you money in your sleep. But you still need a strong work ethic and desire to succeed.
5. You can sell your ecommerce business down the line.
Most entrepreneurs have other business ideas they’d love to explore. I know you do.
Once you’ve built a successful ecommerce business, selling it may provide you with the capital you need to fund a new venture.
On average, ecommerce businesses sell for 2.39 times their annual profit.
See, as the ecommerce industry itself continues to grow, so too does the demand for established ecommerce businesses.
In 2015, the gross value of ecommerce business sales totalled $82 million, a staggering 53% increase from 2014.
