Growth in online sales is not guaranteed during the pandemic
Our early expectations might be wrong
The COVID-19 pandemic has been massively affecting businesses in many fields and in many ways, no matter if they are online stores or bricks-and-mortals. During this time we are living, we see enormous challenges, yet we also find potential opportunities. According to March survey of 304 retailers in the US conducted by Digital Commerce 360, while foot traffic in physical stores is apparently plummeting, the impacts on the e-commerce industry are somewhat complicated and unpredictable. To be specific, only 38% of retailers experienced an upward trend in online sales. At the same time, the majority did not see any significant changes or even underwent a fall in their business. Hence, early positive expectations of experienced digital marketers about the phenomenal growth of online sales need reconsidering.
To explain why there are obvious differences in the growth of different online retailers, there are some objective reasons related to the limitations of the supply chain, product shortages, and an inevitable drop in consumer demand. Besides, how businesses are dealing with the pandemic is somewhat affecting the sales. According to the survey, only a fifth of the retailers are “taking aggressive action,” while 44% are “taking some action,” and a lot more than one third are still observing with no specific responses.
Challenges for new online retailers
Newbies in e-commerce are the most vulnerable
As mentioned before, the fact that you sell things on online platforms does not prevent you from negative effects during the coronavirus pandemic. It depends on how you have responded or are able to respond to the COVID-19 situation. Apparently, new businesses and inexperienced online stores may be suffering a lot because of the lack of preparation, financial stability, and a sustainable amount of loyal customers.
The good news is, while external factors like running-out supplies and decreasing consumer demand are uncontrollable, some instant actions and tactics can work amazingly well if you clearly understand the situation.
If e-commerce websites take this as an opportunity to stand out during this crisis, they will thrive and have great advantages in the long-term.
