Ramp-up business success in the new normal

Add to cart, comment mine, your package is on its way! These are just some of the phrases any Filipino online shopper would know by heart. If you have bought anything from an online store, you would also know that satisfying feeling when a long-awaited package finally arrives at your doorstep. 

E-commerce has become a powerful venue for small businesses to thrive in the new normal. If you’re a seller and you wish to expand your business online, then this is a good opportunity to get creative with your setup. Just remember that customers want their online shopping experience to be fast, convenient, and simple. Some of the trends in e-commerce that are likely to stay even when the pandemic is over are listed below.

Use social media channels to your advantage

From thrift shops to plant stores, you can set up almost any kind of business on popular social media channels. Here you can reach a wider audience, target specific groups, and deliver your own personal touch when you connect with your customers. It is also cheaper to maintain than getting your own website.

Shake things up with livestream selling

People can’t seem to get enough of this new trend. Livestream selling is an online event where customers can make purchases in real-time while the seller is presenting products via a live video stream. It’s a fun, interactive, and entertaining way for people to get to know your business while giving a different online shopping experience.

Say yes to COD and COP

The pandemic has prompted everyone to embrace convenient payment solutions like Cash on Delivery (COD) or Cash on Pickup (COP).  It’s a straightforward and reliable method that both shoppers and sellers greatly appreciate. Paying via COD or COP saves customers from going to payment centers and assures them products they receive are in good condition.

Delivery service is everything

Partnering with a reliable courier service is key to make your online store successful. Customers want to get their items in the shortest time possible at the most affordable shipping cost, while sellers want a partner who can take care of the goods from shipping to delivery.
