8 eCommerce strategies for success in 2021 and beyond
By Alisha Shibli
Online shopping has become the new normal since the world was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. But eCommerce has been growing by leaps and bounds since long before that.
According to Statista, while in 2019, about 1.92 billion people made online purchases, in June 2020, the global retail eCommerce traffic stood at a record high of 22 billion monthly visits. As even local businesses pivot to a digital-first marketing approach, it will take a lot more than your run-of-the-mill campaigns to capture consumers’ attention.
Here are 8 eCommerce strategies that will hold your business in good stead in the new year and the future.
Five reason .INC is the perfect domain for a new business
.INC is a new top-level domain that is perfect for business. Big brands have already registered their .INC domains, including Gap.inc, Fox.inc, PayPal.inc, along with 20% of Forbes “Most Valuable” brands.
Why it’s time to get your brick-and-mortar store online
Toys R Us, the iconic retailer of our childhood, filed for bankruptcy this month, citing a lack of traffic to their brick-and-mortar stores as one of the reasons why the business has been on a slow downward spiral. Their lackluster online store and their inability to compete with online retail giants like Amazon proves that having a customer-facing storefront is no longer enough to bring consistent business through the door. If you own a brick-and-mortar business that sells goods, it’s time to seriously consider taking your shop online.
Why you and your online store deserve a .SHOP domain
Are you an expert-level crafter who is taking Etsy by a storm? Or a pro thrifter who sells your coolest finds on eBay? If this sounds like you, this is your wakeup call—why not turn your online shop into a small business?
