The E-Commerce Movement and The Growth of Drop Shipping
Create Date: 2017-04-08 22:33:39
The growth and development of e-commerce don’t fail to surprise even shock consumers and businesses alike. Retailers are seeing fewer and fewer shoppers making in-store purchases, while web purchases are increasingly lucrative. Products and services that were once deemed improbable (or impossible) to buy online (i.e., food, clothing, cars, among many others) are now being purchased online in greater numbers than in-person. Public opinion has come to a united halt in suggesting that e-commerce has reached a cap in its potential because it has continued to amaze time and time again.
From the consumer’s perspective, the ease and comfort of online shopping taps into and satisfy so many natural human needs and tendencies that it’s no surprise that it continues to succeed, evolve and become increasingly convenient for both the consumer and retailer. These tendencies include our desire to put forth less effort to achieve the same result (i.e., natural human laziness) and our desire to satisfy our needs and wants using faster and easier means (i.e., instant gratification). Virtually any service that is made available to human beings that ensure that we get what we want, quickly, and with less effort on our part is sure to be given an important (and likely permanent) place in our lives. Then there’s the much talked about the factor of our fast-paced society, which creates yet another reason why we gravitate to the convenience and efficiency of e-commerce.
Research, news, articles, the blog-o-sphere, and overall public opinion love to discuss and predict all the new and exciting discoveries and milestones that will be happening and that will be available to us by the year 2020. The same usually happens prior to other landmark years of the past. But when it comes to e-commerce, it is safe to say that it will continue to form an even greater and more important to our in our lives by the ever-increasing convenience in the way goods and services are delivered to the consumer.
E-commerce also continues to offer greater benefits to suppliers, retailers, small businesses, and even opportunities for the average person wishing to start an online marketplace with little start-up cost requirements. The possibilities are endless for the phenomenon of e-commerce, which is no longer a trend, but one of the greatest movements of our time.
Dropshipping allows practically anyone with the right business savvy to become an online entrepreneur. What previously discouraged potential online merchants from setting up their businesses (e.g., start-up costs, office and storage space) has now been solved by allowing small-scale businesses to purchase goods when the buyer places the order (and not before). Orders are submitted directly to the manufacturer and then sent to the buyer, sometimes not even reaching the hands of a business owner.
This leaves Internet entrepreneurs to do what they do best: Marketing, customer service, and management of your online presence (i.e., website and social media). Online businesses can be run in any environment, requiring only Internet connection and a computer. Several major companies are already using dropshipping because they have found that it is more cost-efficient to deliver goods directly to the consumer from distribution centers rather than keeping the inventory themselves. Dropshipping has the potential to produce more jobs, supplement existing jobs, and change how people work.
Running an online business doesn’t have to be a long-term dream that you think about and then become discouraged when calculating the upfront costs involved. It is now possible to use your talent and creativity to bring to life a job that you are passionate about and that you have always envisioned for yourself.
CJDropshipping is a reliable drop shipping source and fulfillment company. We are not good at Facebook Ads. If you want to start your Facebook campaign, you need to learn from somewhere else, like Youtube, Facebook Group or Paid Course. Here are some channels that I knew (Those channels are only for reference, you should learn and decide it by yourself).
