Are you using the web to sell goods and services to customers? If
not, you may be missing out on one of the most lucrative and
cost-effective sales channels of all!
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, only 23.7% of
businesses use the web to receive orders from customers (up from 20.9%
in 2005-06). Only 12.2% of all these sales were received via a
shopping cart-enabled website. (Source: 8129.0 - Business Use of
Information Technology, 2007-08I). These are fairly low
percentages when you consider the technological age that we are living
But the landscape is changing rapidly - online commerce is increasing
exponentially, broadband connections are getting quicker, and people are
becoming more comfortable transacting online. Businesses will need
to change in order to meet the challenges presented by this shift.
Isn't it time that your business started selling products online?
