Online businesses have boomed in the last decade, primarily because of easy access to the internet and the popularity of smartphones. Online shopping is not just some passing fad that lasts for a sizeable period and then disappears. Online shopping is literally the future of retail as we know it. The benefits of taking your business online are aplenty. It would be fair to say that, today, it is virtually impossible to garner desired business growth without a proper online presence. Almost every business has a website but to leverage your online business to make it the single source of business is the goal. It is estimated that e-commerce sales will hit $8.5 trillion by 2024 (Statista). And since 75% of people shop online at least once a month, the growing trend only indicates that online shopping is here to stay.
Why 2024 Is The Time to Strike
With the Coronavirus pandemic wreaking havoc on all industries globally, businesses have had to adapt to cater to their customers. Going online has been the only solution for almost all businesses. Food & beverages, healthcare, daily essentials, entertainment, etc. have all managed to create their own niche by engaging and retaining customers through online sales. If you plan to venture into your own business, you can take heart from the fact that launching it online will guarantee good results, provided you have the right support. As we recover from the pandemic and enter into a new era of business models, 2024 serves as the right time to foray into online businesses.
Who Has Done Well During The Pandemic?
While it was expected for big players like Amazon and Flipkart to take advantage of the challenge of delivering top service to customers at their doorstep, what is wondrous is how many new businesses have emerged as a result. The COVID pandemic was an unexpected turn of events and the impact it had worldwide was not something anybody could anticipate. However, businesses catering to customers at their homes succeeded. Retailers who managed to adapt and began selling their wares online were the winners during the pandemic.
Businesses such as Doordash, Deliveroo, and JustEat, which deliver essentials directly to homes, grew leaps and bounds. Businesses that rely on people leaving their homes were the worst hit. It is difficult to expect people to go watch movies or use trains and buses on a regular basis. However, by engaging their audience with virtual theatre experiences at home, online ticket sales for shows kept selling. The defining aspect of the pandemic has been to shift your business to an online platform. No wonder Netflix and Hotstar are crowd favorites, with subscriptions going up more than 100%.
