Modern retail and commerce continues to evolve away from the high street and towards the digital world. Extra convenience is the key driver from the shopper’s perspective, and as a retailer, it’s simply been a case of looking to accommodate for this paradigm shift. For businesses in some industries, this has been a huge success. Online retail enables more customers from a wider expanse of geographies to be serviced, helping to bring in higher revenue and to ultimately allow a business to grow.
As an online retailer, the run up to Christmas is arguably the most important time of year.
How successful this time proves to be for your business can shape the overall year you have. Lots of sales and happy customers and your overall margins will skyrocket. Miss out on opportunities here though, and it can be a very different picture.
A truly savvy business will be mindful of every element of their operations. This naturally covers a wide spectrum of business areas, and it’s not necessarily a straightforward task when it comes to staying on top of everything.
But whenever there’s an opportunity to save money, improve efficiencies and benefit your business, this should certainly be considered.

Did you know we save 17 trees for every tonne of paper we recycle?
If every person in the UK recycled just 10% more paper, this number could grow to over five million trees a year.
