But does it apply to my business?
And you might think this doesn’t apply to your business, sometimes it’s not immediately obvious what your business could do on e-commerce, we have helped many businesses like yours cross this hurdle. For example salons, coffee shops, and arcades. You could be forgiven for thinking you need physical customers. Sell products to customers stuck at home, you probably upsell them in the store, right? hair products, coffee beans, mugs, LED lights? you can do this online too. Capture emails and re-target long after that new haircut has been given or that latte macchiato has been devoured.
Still not convinced? Here are the main reasons your business should have an e-commerce store.
1) Increase revenue
Your business will have increased revenue simply by being on e-commerce, this is because it provides a new market your current customers couldn’t access before.
2) The barrier to entry is low
You don’t need much experience, knowledge, or expensive equipment to run your e-commerce store. You probably have everything you need to get started already.
3) You can sell your products in multiple locations
e-commerce allows you to manage the whole process from a single dashboard. This makes it easy for people to buy from you no matter where they are located, which means increased revenue!

6) you can put yourself in front of your customers
It would be difficult to get 2000 people to visit your business right?
