The advantages of E-commerce are becoming so vast that any business not possessing an Internet presence is truly trailing behind the rest of the crowd.
Unfortunately, there are still business owners out there who have not yet realized that Internet presence is more of a necessity today rather than a possibility. In order to stay competitive, most businesses must establish some means of doing business over the Internet in order to keep up with the trend in almost any industry. There are more than 100 million people that are regular Internet users, and it is estimated that perhaps one quarter of those are Internet shoppers. That is a huge market, and leaving it untapped would only show a serious lack of dedication on the part of any business owner.
The advantages of e-commerce are much greater than simply the vast market share that is available. The cost to expenditure ratio of maintaining a successful e-commerce department of a business can be a fraction of maintaining any physical infrastructure. In fact, this is the underlying reason why many businesses are being created every year that only have online storefronts. The costs involved in a physical business are immense; there are facility, equipment, supply, and advertising costs just to name a few. If a business makes the transition to e-commerce and uses this as the sole method of selling their goods or services, they can save large amounts of money on many of those items.
