Online Boom Confirmed by James Packer

Posted on January 01, 2014

If you haven't started selling your products and services online yet, I have some news for you. We're leaving you behind.

The Australian market was yesterday greeted with the news that one of the country's richest men, James Packer, had tipped in $80 Million into retail sites CatchOfTheDay and Scoopon to help them expand into new markets.

A wide variety of factors have been increasingly pushing shoppers online, both on and offshore including strong currency, wider variety of products, faster internet connection, and an increased comfort in buying products online. If you have a product or service that lends itself to being sold online, I have two words for you. Start Today. It has never been a better time to start selling your products online. Design and development costs are cheap and options are plentiful; Shipping options are lowering; and the consumers are ready to buy from you.
