With the year already coming to a close, many of us are asking “Where did it all go?”. 2018 has been a year of multiple achievements, many of which have laid the groundwork for an even better 2019. We exist in a time where businesses are offered countless opportunities to take themselves to the next level. The most important being transforming your company into an online enterprise and leaving your competitors in the dust. This is how you can reach the cutting edge with e-commerce and online sales in 2019.

E-commerce refers to the process of selling your products and services online. While many unfortunately still refuse to go digital, it has been proven that those who do have a much higher turnover. Not only is e-commerce growing by 23% year over year but 56.9% of internet users are digital shoppers, with an expected increase to 65.9% by 2023. In South Africa alone, there is 18.43 million e-commerce users. What this means is that many people are choosing to do their shopping online and the number is only growing. We are entering the next stage of business evolution and now is the perfect time to capitalise on it.
