Applications to Grow Your Business from Home

More Customers are Shopping Online

Online retail is booming worldwide, and Australia is no exception. As of January 2019, online shopping was responsible for 9% of Australia’s total retail sales. As of 2020, at least one in every ten items is purchased online.1

With consumers becoming more comfortable with purchasing a variety of products online, many industries do not need a physical store location to remain competitive in their market. For owners of bricks and mortar stores, who are now facing a global online market, competition has never been fiercer. Rather than sitting back and watching the sales roll in, retailers must adapt to this ever-changing landscape – or risk falling behind.

How to Be Competitive in the Online Retail Market

Aside from offering unparalleled customer service, small business owners and retailers can avoid competition in a global online market by targeting a distinctive niche and/or giving customers something that competitors cannot. One way to do this is by selling unique and personalised products that are valuable to the customer.
