Responsible Marketing Can Help You Sell Your Products Online
The advent of the Internet and e-commerce has opened many doors for businesses of all sizes, particularly smaller businesses that primarily rely on local walk-in traffic for their revenue. An Internet-based storefront allows customers from all over the world access to products and services that they may not have locally or, in many cases, provides shoppers and buyers with ease of purchase and the convenience of not having to leave their home or office computer to make a purchase.
E-commerce sales in the US for the first half of 2009 totaled approximately $64 billion, or roughly 3.5% of total US retail spending. Online retail sales in the U.S. are expected to grow about $20 billion to $30 billion each year for the next several years, reaching somewhere between $215 billion and $335 billion by 2012, according to two recently released reports on e-commerce.
