Any business, whether small-time or not, need to have online presence.  While it is an astute choice if you establish a virtual store, it’s must now for entrepreneurs to learn e-commerce. Good thing Filipinos don’t need to go to foreign experts for help, because there’s an institution like DigitalFilipino that can educate every Negosyanteng Pinoy about online business.

Personally, I can attest na ang pagnenegosyo ay hindi biro even it just a sideline or home-based. These days you can’t rely on traditional ways to sell you products so you need to set up, at least a Facebook fan page and post online ads for your marketing effort. You can sell more, reach more customers and get high profits (the ultimate goal) if you can do e-commerce right away and in the right way.

Benefits of overcoming business mistakes with e-commerce

To let them know your business is existing

I am like any meticulous clients that need to know more about the product I am about to avail.  Wala ka na rin kasing oras na magtatawag o mag-ikot sa mall para malaman ang isang bagay na trip mo. Eh kaso pag walang website at wala ring Facebook page ang isang company, nganga! I either search for other brands/ companies or think that a business is not ideal. In a way, having a website gives a very good reputation.

To capture and maintain your target customer’s attention

Getting hit or views and even comments cannot be counted as getting high profit. You need to hook your clients to encourage them to buy something from you. Ang madalas kong pagkakamali (part of my bad habit) ay I don’t have a sense of urgency to reply right away na akala ko dati ay okay lang. If you know what’s really in e-commerce industry, you’ll know how to act and react.

To handle online business problems and clients very well

Getting customers’ interest is one point, but handling their needs is another thing. Maraming pagkakataon na ikaw mismo ay susuko sa business deals because of your personal struggle and lack of knowledge in tax, charge back and fraud.

Of course, you are also prone to fraudsters when you market online so you must be careful. And it’s also understandable if a customer has questions about your product, which you have to answer with sense of authority.

To perform better than your competitors

I am not the type of person who likes to compete, but I really want to establish profitable and strong businesses. Way back 2013, I am already posting ads online, but I couldn’t get inquiries or close a deal. I realized that ,I also should be aware of my competitors and target market. Study their profile, strengths, weakness, buying power and other online behavior.


To make your awesome business go national or international

This is one of the big perks of doing e-commerce because your reach can be from Italy to Tawi-Tawi or from Candaba, Pampanga to Toronto, Canada. It’s up to you if you want to focus on certain niche or area, but oh la la you can get opportunities and actualize possibilities with e-commerce.
