The overall buyer-seller relationship has changed drastically in the last few years. People have started going online to buy most of their products and services. The pandemic has accelerated the shift towards a more digital world changing shopping behavior forever.
Consumers prefer to shop online as they can buy at their convenience whenever and wherever they want. Unlike brick and mortar stores, consumers don’t need to be physically present to make a purchase. A lot of money and time can be saved by shopping online.
If you are thinking about starting a business, we would suggest building an online one or at least one that focuses heavily on the online side. Many existing brick and mortar businesses have started going online as a way to survive and thrive. It is estimated that e-commerce is approaching $200 billion in revenue in the United States alone and this is going to increase considerably in the future.
We at SDI have helped several online businesses to earn money. If you have got an idea we are there to turn it into a success.
Let’s take a look at some of the business sectors which are doing very well.
A popular way of making money is to start an eCommerce platform. Based on the consumer’s needs you can create a niche eCommerce site. There is an audience for anything from pet food to dolls and everything in between. You can also offer a variety of different products. An eCommerce platform will allow you to sell products to anyone, anywhere. Offering good discounts and personalized services allows you to attract and retain customers.
You can also resell products manufactured by companies after creating a link with them through your website. For instance, you can use platforms such as Amazon, and once the order is placed on your online store, the customer details can be routed back to the manufacturer who is responsible for packing and shipping the product. You can earn a commission without making a huge investment. In the eCommerce space, this is known as drop shipping.
E-commerce is a growing field and this year it’s expected to reach $5 trillion.
