Pandemic enforced certain online businesses to introduce features like contactless delivery, voice instructions, no doorbell ringing, quick chat, hot food, and many more. These all features omitted the need for any customer to go out and bring in the food. And this doesn’t prove beneficial only during the pandemic; it did have long-lasting impacts on the customers. Easy access to anything always attracts.
What if a similar pandemic arises again? One is aware of the UK Virus spreading worldwide. The UK is in complete lockdown. What if it lasts two years? Enough for even a booming offline business to go bankrupt! Pandemic has taught one thing to everyone: Be prepared for the worst, it may arrive anytime!
You are the best. You know it. Not everyone. If you got it, you flaunt it. No one knows about you until you are online and someone worse than you is taking over the market you deserve by merely going online. If you think you are best, go ahead and make a mark on the market by going online, catering to the real customers, giving them what they deserve, and get what you deserve, the market that was available for your taking and market that always belonged to you. Don’t let anyone else take it.
According to Statista, 4.66 billion people were online as of October 2020 and this is bound to increase in the time to come. With major businesses going online to grab this opportunity and cater to a large function at the White House, why would anyone not take up this opportunity and rather serve the three benches aside them?
Wouldn’t you be interested in the fame and recognition one gets out of the above? What the year 2020 has done is that it has brought more and more people to the internet and less on the streets. This has necessitated improving online presence and image to have a better reach to the customers and ultimately greater profits and revenue. The customer will come back again if he/she recognizes it and if it is reachable.
The more you move towards going online, the more you more towards expanding the business and who knows, you might be the owner of a multi-million dollar firm. One does receive pride in saying that he /she is the owner of a company having 1000+ employees. Imagine yourself seated on a chair, posing for the Forbes magazine cover!
