If you’re an entrepreneur and you are inspired to sell your products online, increase your income, acquire another stream of income then you probably already know that having an online store is a huge benefit for your business. This article will explain some of the benefits you’ll get by having an online/ecommerce website to sell your products.

Income Potential

When you have an online store, one if the most beneficial features of your website is the ability to login to the website and post as many products as you please. The more products you publish on your website, the more products you can advertise and the more money you can make. The website visitor will in turn have more variety to view and search for products in multiple categories. Having a bigger variety of products on the website will increase sales because the customer can stay on your online store to search all their products instead of going to someone else’s site or Amazon.com.

Larger Customer Base

When you have an online store compared to a physical location, you have the ability to immediately reach a larger amount of people. When you have a physical location, you are limited to people who walk past your store, tell other people about your store, or passing cars. Also with a physical store you are limited to the amount of inventory you can hold in the store. When you have an online store, you can scale better because if your customer base is larger and online, you can focus on shipping instead of not getting the sale because its out of stock in the store.

Flexible Hours

With an online store, you can sell products 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A website visitor can visit your site 3am, and check out an item. If you have a physical store, more than likely you’ll have store hours. So if your physical store closes at 9pm and someone wants to buy a product at 9:10pm, you lost a sale to a competitor who stays open later or 24 hours. A benefit of an online store is you can receive an order at any time of the day and ship it out anytime the same day so you do not miss a sale. You also do not need to wait until you are finished helping a customer to be able to add more products to your website. With a physical store, you may have to wait until a less busy time of the day to check inventory, prices, and restocking shelves.
