It’s so great to have options in how and where to run a business. With today’s economic challenges, more and more businesses can and are reducing operating costs by establishing themselves online. Think about the advantages. They are significant: smaller operating space requirements, less staff, and the opportunity to be visible and visited by more customers.
Staffing is a huge expense that can be reduced considerably by doing business online. There would no longer be a need for traditional sales people. Baytech Webs realizes with no staff monitoring the floor that space can be used to stock additional product. Buying in bulk may not be a realistic option for the brick and mortar retailer because of limited space but with less front-end retail space needed to accommodate customers the opportunity is there to take advantage of buying in bulk and maximizing profit. For those businesses offering services rather than selling product, being online can completely eliminate the need for commercial office space and instead the business can be conveniently based from non-traditional locations like a spare bedroom or better yet, a beach hide-away.
Something else to consider in running an online business is the opportunity for increase in revenue while keeping costs down. A wider range of products can be displayed. No long lines for customers to wait in since orders can be received electronically. And with electronic software, stock can be monitored and replaced automatically from suppliers. Another great convenience is the availability of product updates online, for instance customers being able to download software updates.
One more big plus is easing the way businesses manage sales. Many banks now offer e-commerce solutions that make cash flow more efficient. A bank can be linked directly to the company’s account enabling the bank to verify credit card details and make the appropriate transactions.
