Let's dispel a myth right away. Selling products online is the future? Probably not. Why?
Because online commerce is certainly the present!
Today, companies must be able to sell their own products online. They have to create their own e-commerce.
The road to opening new earning possibilities in 2018 is the following.
Who says otherwise is committing a severe mistake, probably fatal to its commercial activity.
In the future we'll be able to talk about the Internet of Things and AI technology. Without a doubt.
Ma ora la cosa migliore che puoi fare per il tuo business è creare il tuo sito e-commerce proprietario, caricare i tuoi prodotti e promuovere il tuo shop online.
The best thing you can do right now for your business is to create your own e-commerce, uploading your products and advertising your online shop.
Why should you create your own e-commerce?
Creating your own e-commerce is something completely different from selling your products on big marketplaces like Amazon or Ebay.
Do not exclude your presence on these players, but remember that marketplaces should only be considered as extra sales channels in which to position yourself and not the ultimate solution for your online business.
A proprietary e-commerce allows you to have independence and freedom of action, which , if used well, leads to great results, both in terms of traffic and in terms of website conversions.
Developing a proprietary e-commerce allows you to earn more, but it also leads to the management of new online activities that require time, expertise and budget to invest.
In fact, with proprietary e-commerce, you don't have to only worry about the creation but also the maintenance of the platform through the creation of content, online advertising, newsletters, SEO activities.
Creating a proprietary e-commerce and managing it in the best possible way allows you to:
- have more control over the whole supply chain
- distinguish yourself from competitors
- create a satisfying purchase experience for your customers
- provide value to your products and your activity
- avoiding intermediaries
