Every day we get an inquiry from someone who wants an e-commerce site. Everyone has a product to sell and wants to put it online. Starting an Ecommerce website is easy. But doing e-commerce is hard, and doing it successfully is even harder. When you start E-Commerce, you are competing with every other online store, including giants like Amazon, Flipkart & Myntra.
Putting up an e-commerce website is just like building your new retail store next to a Big Bazaar Hyper City or D-Mart or Reliance Fresh or Star Bazaar.
Your products might be great, but if they have equivalent products at any of the large format stores, then the customers will probably pick it up while getting milk and toilet paper because it’s easier.
If you want to be successful at e-commerce, you must have a strong Ecommerce Strategy. We at Origin consultants can help you with your SWOT analysis and finalize your Ecommerce Strategy.
