With Valentine’s day approaching, many business owners can expect a temporary boost in sales. However, with the internet market blooming, getting your shop online in time for Valentine’s Day can drastically increase your sales. In 2012, on average, every person spent $130.97 for Valentine’s Day so you can’t go wrong with setting up your E-Commerce shop today.
Creating an online shop, also known as an E-Commerce site, can prove to be very advantageous for your business. Plain and simple, creating an E-Commerce shop provides an additional platform for your customers to shop. With more ways for customers to shop, you will then make more sales because you can reach out to a larger audience. Another factor is that online shopping is much quicker for both the seller and buyer, and in today’s fast paced work environment a quick transaction can be a deal breaker for many potential customers. Not to mention that almost every potential customer will go online to shop. In fact, E-Commerce sales in 2013 accounted for $1.5 trillion.
Now that you know the advantages of an E-Commerce site, there is no better time to set up your online shop. With Valentine’s Day approaching in just over a month, you can take advantage of that fact that more than 25% of people will go online to shop. Meanwhile, according to About.com, 46.9% of tablet users and 40.7% of smartphone users will “research products, prices, and retailer information, redeem coupons and purchase products with their device.” So, if you set up your E-Commerce shop, you can reach out to a much larger customer base and effectively improve your sales.
