The number of people working from home has historically always been a small part of global industry. Yet as current times show, we are living through unprecedented increases
in the number of remote employees. Fewer and fewer businesses are needing office and retail space, and there have certainly been struggles on both fronts.
But why might this be a good thing
for some companies? Well, because of the vast shipping infrastructure
that lies behind much of today’s modern industries, it’s actually far easier to send and receive products than it ever used to be - and, in many ways, it’s more convenient
than going to the store. This has been true for a long time but recent events have shown that plenty of businesses can survive and in fact thrive
based on this model - many don’t even have a physical storefront or even a typical office. Remote workers that don’t have to commute and no office space to pay for means more money
can be put towards building website infrastructure
and services for worldwide customers.
In other words, you can still be just as successful
if not more so by focusing on how online services will impact your business. Offering discounts for online sales
, incentives to download business apps, and putting out interesting newsletter content
will all help to drive sales and remind customers why they like shopping with you. It’s so easy to personalize
the experience and make sure that your customers are getting the same treatment online
that they’ve come to enjoy from you in person.
