Social Network and EcommerceMarch 14 2018
In this technological age, we have two big influencers: social networks platforms and websites for ecommerce businesses.
Just take a look in your web browser’s history.
Probably, use your social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter almost daily, coupled along with your use of online shopping since your busy work schedule sometimes doesn’t allow the time to go to the store.
There is an upward trend of social networking and online shopping. Both these types of web activities have become a big and almost inseparable part of our lives. It was a no-brainer to the most progressive and competitive retailers to combine social network and their online website.
Think about it.
When stores create an online presence, they build a relationship with their customers and can reach them more readily than by emails. In turn, this increases sales and revenue.
What was described in the last paragraph is how ecommerce was created.
How Ecommerce Uses Social Networks
Social media used to be a place where people could connect and keep in touch with others. It was fun and an easy way to keep up with an old classmate’s life. It became the new way people stayed social and businesses took notice. A business can sustain itself through social media since it can reach out to its customers even after they’ve left the store. A business’s social network can direct people towards and product or sale that’s going to happen soon.
Additionally, social media is another way for people to connect and be in an online community. People are more likely to buy something if they see it on social media and if one or more of their friends have bought it and given it good reviews.
