With the COVID-19 outbreak, businesses have been forced to offer products and services online as a solution to the problems that arose with this unfortunate event. Despite the current situation, business owners can still see a light at the end of the tunnel because people are always looking for convenient ways to get what they need.
Clearly, businesses sense demand in the market. Those with strategic insight and willingness to invest will be able to redefine the market by moving online. However, businesses that are not addressing current needs could be in for some pain. If you are not ready for the online shift, here is a great opportunity to step forward and make it happen.
Companies that have already built out its technology infrastructure will likely see the prospect of offering online services for free or for a reduced price as a strategy to build a database to work within the next few months.
For the companies that were already planning to move online before the outbreak, there is still time to do so due to the high demand for products and services that can be offered online. Moreover, the advantages of moving online are well known and will benefit companies in the long run as well. It is no question of if companies will move online, but when? Obviously, the answer to the question is now. No business is too small to build an online presence and facilitate access to its products and services. According to the CIRA Internet tracking study, the average Canadian spends 45 hours online per month, more than any other nation and almost double the global average.
Going online to offer learning tools and support to customers has become the immediate measure during the outbreak. Some of the most affected sectors are education, fitness, and health. Over time, businesses will find more refined options to be increasingly attractive in the wake of the coronavirus-induced move online. Right now, the technical aspect may be the biggest question about how much this online migration will be an opportunity and how much it will be a risk. Mobile devices have become our primary computer as the convenience, low cost, and people’s insatiable need for more information, make things like billions of wireless sensors seem reasonable, if not economically indispensable.
