What has the pandemic taught us about e-commerce and the importance of small businesses?

The world is changing.


The events of recent months have now more than ever proven the importance of small businesses. They are the engine that drives our economy, and it's crucial they continue to operate and bring us the products and services we need to keep us happy - and sane.
The current situation that has engulfed our world has changed how we think about the online landscape for businesses. Yet, these changes have been happening slowly for years as more and more businesses have shifted their priorities online. It's during such a time of great crisis that we can see what a difference it makes to be online. Video conferencing is the new norm, and we are even more reliant on the Internet for food and basic supplies.

We are all looking for a return to normalcy. But that doesn't mean it's not a good idea to be looking forward, too. We are now living in a world where it would be unthinkable only a few months ago to close restaurants and allow only online orders, but that's the truth of where we are. At DG1, we always believed in the importance of preparing small businesses for the realities and opportunities of the online world. There was a time when having a physical store was the only way to be successful. In these past months, we've seen this isn't the case - a strong digital presence is just as important, if not more important. These are the businesses that will be able to weather considerable changes in the economic landscape, and it's something we're uniquely equipped to deal with. We've been thinking about these problems for years. And with over a decade and a half of experience helping digital businesses grow, we've learned a thing or two.

That's why we've created a unique, all-in-one platform that is equipped to handle all your digital assets. We've integrated six enterprise-level solutions: E-Commerce, marketing automation, booking, website content management, Big Data, and a mobile app for Android/ – into one software environment at a price that's affordable for any size of business.

Own your data. Own your future. We're here to help.
