The UK is the world leader in e-commerce, the internet economy is expanding at a healthy rate despite the economic downturns of the last few years, and more and more people are turning to the internet for shopping, yet STILL some businesses continue to scrape by ‘offline’ when they could be vastly increasing their sales by simply getting themselves online.
We are less than 2 weeks away from christmas at the time of writing, and bang in the middle of the busiest shopping period of the year, the high streets and shopping centres are packed with frantic shoppers trying to get their christmas shopping ‘wrapped’ up – whilst others are just getting started! However, due to the the increased stresses of modern life, with work, kids, and many others things for people to sort out, many have simply had it with the chaos of reaching for the last copy of ‘Call Of Duty’ at the same time as 2 others, then having to deal with the tense negotiations over who is more deserving!
So, more people are turning to the internet for those christmas gifts, internet shopping is not a particularly new thing, but it is something which is continuing to grow whilst already being worth an estimated £100billion a year, and the simple view is, if you are not online, then you are missing out on potentially hundreds of pounds this christmas.
It may be to late for this christmas, but with several ‘spending’ holidays throughout the year, and the increase in general online shopping, your best bet is to get yourself online. At Dijitul we provide stylish yet simple ecommerce platforms which we can train you to use and edit yourself at any time.
