It is redefining commercial activities around the world. Over the year's E-Commerce become a vast industry of trillion dollars. Now customers are shifting their interests on online shopping from brick and mortar stores or traditional stores.
That's how local stores are losing their customers and their revenue day by day. We have forgotten the impact of local stores on our economy.
A large number of people's earning depends on traditional stores. They are being jobless and facing financial problems due to low sells. The trends show the worst future of local stores.
We mustn't deny the positive impact of traditional stores. We need to develop local commerce and e-commerce together. Otherwise, both will be the competitor of each other and local stores will be replaced by e-commerce. That will bring a terrible future for local stores.
At this time, the very important question we must ask, How can we make our local stores survive with technology and the digital revolution? How can we save millions of people's employment and livelihoods?
The Exploration of e-commerce
Let us look at Statistics and Trends that depict the growth of e-commerce globally. We are going to describe the growth of e-commerce according to a report published in 2019 by Aaron Oren Diff.
The report presents statistics and Trends about e-commerce since 2014 and also give estimates of the future of eCommerce up to 2021.
The revolution of the e-commerce industry is a worldwide opportunity for business. The growing rate is dramatically increasing day by day. From 2014 to 2020 it increased to 1.3 Trillion dollars to 4.1 Trillion dollars. The growth might estimate 4.9 Trillion dollars by 2021.
Can you imagine? How fast it's growing. The result scares me a lot. We can predict the future, if we don't focus on local stores, our local stores will be shut down very soon.
Did you see the shocking news of America? In America, 8000 local stores shut down because of losing revenue and customers. And 9000 local stores shut down in 2019. All this because people
are not interested in the go-to store for shopping, rather they choose to shop from home and by mobile. People love to buy from online, but local stores are not online-based.
On other hand, we are focusing to build only one industry e-commerce without paying attention to local commerce and traditional stores. That's why in near future, the local stores will be replaced by e-commerce, that time we may lose millions of small businesses and employment.
Now, you might be realise the importance of making local stores online based too.
So, we must find out a way where brick and mortar stores or local stores can grow with e-commerce. E-Commerce is an invisible competitor of local stores. It that case, because of technology, e-commerce will boom but local stores will be left behind.
So, Whats the ways?
There are some ways to make local stores online based. But those ways are not effective enough.
A local store can go online shopping by social media and creating their own e-commerce website .
But the problem is, Social Media is so addictive, people use social media to be connected with their friends, or for addiction not for buying anything. So, they avoid every ad they get from any page. They feel irrterate with your products instead of being interested.
Furthermore, business owners have to spend a lot of money online boost up their pages. Becauese the algarithm of social media is desighned to reach your page to your audience when you boost otherwise it will give very little reach. That's why you might spend money continiously to run your business. In that case, small business owners will not be interested to go social media based online.
Another way is having a own website is not effective too, because our local stores owners are not technical enough to maintain a website, also thay may have to spend a big amount to develop a website by a developer and the might be fully depend on developer for every task like, product uploading, offer giving, blog writing etc. As those are continious works for a website.
So that doesnt work too.
