How to Digitalise Your Business Like a Pro

Digitisation

11 Jan 2023 • 3 minit bacaan

Just like anything else, digitalising your business has its pros and cons. Even so, if you know how to manage the challenges that come with digitalisation, you stand to reap the benefits of doing business online. 

 

Digitalisation is the next frontier for all, be it businesses or customers. The acceleration of digital transformation was especially evident during the height of the pandemic. In such a paradigm-shifting time, the option to connect beyond face-to-face interactions helped to empower us in overcoming limitations with comfort and convenience.  

 

In the context of business, even though brick-and-mortar retail remains a staple of the consumer experience, no one can doubt that online shopping has its own set of advantages. For enterprising individuals such as yourself who are running your own business, going online is the perfect way to maximise your resources at hand! 

 

Of course, there will be challenges to face so keep this guidance in mind. You’ll be better prepared to overcome obstacles and get on the right track for business growth! 

 

Planning your start-up costs 

 

Perhaps the biggest challenge in initiating your business online would be the start-up costs. Though some initial platforms are free to use — Instagram, for example — there may be other expenses to consider. 

 

These could include costs for website hosting and search engine optimisation (if you’re setting up your own page), copywriting and design (if you’re looking to outsource the talent), and page maintenance among others. 

 

Of course, the costs all vary depending on how much you’re willing to take on and do yourself, and what else you’d like to invest in the long run. Determining this starting amount properly would ultimately help you navigate the realm of online business with a strong digital presence. 

 

You can always work around the issue of budgeting by learning more about financial tools and marketing know-how. By doing this, you can spend less on outsourcing and have more of a say on how you want to put your best foot forward.

Ensuring security for buyer and seller alike 

 

When it comes to security, both customers and businesses can be at risk of being tricked. The threat doesn’t just apply to small businesses; more established companies too have found fraud to be a rampant issue. 

 

In August 2022, a survey by software company Stripe found that up to 64% of businesses faced difficulty in countering an increase in fraudulent activity. They struggle not only due to the increasing frequency of fraud, but also because of the growing complexity involved in these fraudulent schemes. The danger is becoming harder to detect or deflect, especially without knowing what to look out for.    

 

That’s why when it comes to handling transactions online, it’s always best to keep it simple and transparent. The only information you share across should be limited to just the appropriate account numbers, pricing and confirmation of purchase.

Furthermore, it helps if there’s a way for customers to contact you directly to inquire and double check. This can be useful to counter instances of fake accounts or identity theft, and in turn help boost your credibility and readiness to serve.  

 

Beyond the challenges of cost and security, it is also a matter of how you go about building familiarity between your customers and your brand, leading to loyal buyers. With these points to consider, you’ll be primed to take on the world of online business and set the course for your next achievement!
