For many businesses in South Africa, the decision to move sales online is one many are struggling with. There is a sense of urgency to move online because the current global pandemic has brought e-commerce forward by years. The development of e-commerce stores has taken a sharp upward curve and businesses can’t afford to be left behind.
Selling online isn’t just about finding a product, putting it online and hoping that someone will come across your website and purchase it. That just doesn’t happen in the real world. Some of the elements of success include:
- Creating stories people connect emotionally with
- Selling your purpose or cause (this doesn’t only apply to NGO’s)
- Finding unique products
- Standing out from your competitors (this is probably the toughest part)
- Marketing your business online to optimise your website traffic and sales growth
