It’s Time To Make Real Money. It’s Time to Go eCommerce

Is your business making money, or more importantly—is your business even online? With 87% of the British population shopping online—you could be losing out on thousands of pounds each month.

In an age of rivalry, exorbitant retail rentals, fly-by-night trends, and the emergence of young shoppers who would shop online at midnight—it seems a month passes by without a much-loved retailer or start-up closing their doors. The world of retail has gone eCommerce.

The Internet has revolutionised the way we live—and online trading is now a way of life. Did you know that 96% of the UK population are on the Internet and that UK shoppers make 87% of their retail purchases online? So, we ask again: Is your business making money—and are you online?

The UK is the hub of internet shoppers

As the gateway to 21st-century trading, everyone should be trading online. In fact, in 2021, forecasters estimate there will be 2.1 billion digital buyers worldwide. Fortunately, the United Kingdom B2C eCommerce market is the third-largest in the world. As one of the most sophisticated eCommerce markets, the UK has become the hub of internet shoppers, influencing up to 56% of in-store purchases. Even though it is a smaller consumer market than the US, China or Japan, shoppers spend more money per capita online than in other countries, with business-to-consumer turnover expected to reach over 200 billion Euros at the beginning of 2020.

It’s time to cash in on the eCommerce revolution

With 86% of the UK population making at least one purchase between 2018 and 2019—by 2028, eCommerce in the UK expects to account for 53% of the country’s total retail sales. A recent survey by 123-Reg revealed that businesses with an online shop were 51% more likely to grow than those without one. That tells us that there has never been a better time to cash in on the eCommerce revolution.

UK Shoppers love to shop online

In our tech-savvy times, an eCommerce shop is one of the fastest, convenient, and most affordable ways to build a consumer base and double sales. The UK population love to shop online, and this allows customers to make purchases anytime and anywhere. eCommerce provides safe and easy payment options, and delivery is always on time—and sometimes even free.

For the frugal shopper, super-saving deals and discounts are essential, and since there are zero overheads that high-street stores demand—sellers offer discounted prices and loads of incentives. Plus, Distance Selling Regulations have made it mandatory for merchants to accept returns, provided items are sent back within seven days. UK shoppers know they will get their money back.

You double your chances of sales with an eCommerce site
eCommerce does not just provide benefits to shoppers. It is a holy grail for start-ups and retailers of all sizes too. Offering a platform where customers easily find you, and allowing you to innovate, and double sales—going eCommerce can both make and save businesses loads of money. Your overheads are almost zero because you get to cut out rentals, interior design costs, sales equipment, salaries, and more.

eCommerce allows you to punch above your weight against much larger competitors and expand your geographic reach. Your business remains open 24/7, and with SEO practices in place, online stores can rank high with all the different search engines, which drive traffic to your store.

But the REAL beauty of eCommerce is the amount of information harvested about customers’—thanks to Web Analytics. Google Analytics makes it extremely easy to see where people find your website, which pages they visit, and where in the UK they live. It is almost impossible to get these results from standard websites or brick and mortar stores.
With an eCommerce business, there is no limit on the amount of money to make. It hardly matters whether you’re looking to earn thousands of pounds or Euros every month or save up some extra cash for a rainy day. If you’re running your eCommerce business efficaciously, you will achieve your financial goals.
Retailers must respond to the ever-changing market—or get left behind

As UK shoppers hunt for the best deals and prices, the growth of eCommerce drives a relentless pursuit of value for money. To thrive and survive, retailers must respond to the ever-changing online shopping behaviour led by younger shoppers—or they will be closing their brick-and-mortar shutters in no time. An online shop welcomes a wave of local and international web surfing buyers. Expect sales growth, excellent savings on overheads and set-up costs, and efficient monitoring of customers.
