In the short months that the United States has experienced ongoing quarantine measures to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, countless individuals have started to search for a job that works on their own terms. As eCommerce continues to grow during this pandemic, many are pursuing the dream to be their own boss. In this article, we will look at why eCommerce remains popular during quarantine and how you can get started quickly with minimal start-up costs to begin your journey into entrepreneurship.
While many major retail locations have been closed due to public health concerns, online stores have continued to churn out products to customers that are stuck at home and ready to purchase. For instance, think about how many Amazon deliveries you have seen in your own neighborhood during lockdowns. Wouldn’t it be nice if your small business were able to get a piece of that pie and continue to make revenue during periods of uncertainty? With eCommerce that is exactly what you can do!
Maintaining an eCommerce website will often require a fee upfront for the creation of the website and all needed technologies to take payments or maintain inventory as well as a recurring fee for web hosting and domain registration. While this may seem like more hassle than it’s worth, a domain can sometimes be obtained for a little as $1 each year, while hosting can be as little as $10 monthly. In most cases, a single sell will net this amount of money and any profit afterward is pocketed without the overhead costs that traditional retail requires.
Any business that wants to grow online and become “future proof” should be investing in eCommerce now. While it has already become increasingly popular, it isn’t unlikely that buying and selling online will become the new norm as traditional retail locations begin to fizzle out.
