Chad Everett Harris on Transitioning from Traditional to Online Business Methods

Since the start of COVID-19, millions of brick-and-mortar stores have been forced to close, which has left many without income or a means to pay their rent. In these uncertain times, it has never been more important to consider alternative revenue streams and ways of working. E-commerce is growing 24% year-over-year, and yet roughly 46% of American small businesses do not have a website.

As a serial entrepreneur who uses his marketing experience to help businesses find success in customer retention, acquisition, and negotiations, Chad E. Harris is here outline the benefits of transitioning your business from a more traditional to an online business model.

Access a Greater Client Base

Even if you are only using an online business model to support your traditional business, e-commerce can be a great way to promote and support those activities. Chad E. Harris explains that it is an absolute necessity for companies to be visible online if they want to survive these uncertain economic times. If you consider where you spend most of your time online, it is likely on news sites, social media, and search engines. If your business is not visible and connected to these channels, your traditional business will struggle to survive. If done right, an online business strategy can complement your traditional business.
