#3 Small Business Issue for 2013 – eCommerce

Small businesses must prepare for what appears to be an extremely difficult economic environment. Tuesday, we discussed all of the new rules and regulations associated with Obamacare. And just yesterday we spoke of the importance of access to capital and small business loans. Today, we broach our third concern for small businesses in 2013 - the need for solid eCommerce Solutions. eCommerce Solutions for most small businesses are becoming essential for small- to medium-sized businesses.  In fact, eCommerce payment processing sales during the last few months grew at 15-20 % year over year, while  bricks and mortar sales were down. It has become increasingly clear that an eCommerce site is essential, not only to take payments, but also to allow a business to be found online. Those without a website are at a significant disadvantage. This includes not just big box retailers or major service providers, but also local small businesses and their competitors. The ability to be found and highlighted through  a local internet search is a necessity these days. If you're ready to upgrade your website to include eCommerce, or you just want better service from your eCommerce provider than you are currently receiving, we can help.
