Reasons Why E-Commerce Will Flourish – OnlineBusinessDegree.org
It’s no secret that online shopping has become a booming business—virtually everything under the sun is available for online purchase in today’s e-market, and most items bought online can be on your doorstep no matter where you live – Rhode Island, California, Florida, Washington, Kansas – within a matter of one day. With the success of brick and mortar retailers taking their wares to the web, it’s no small wonder then that some businesses are dispensing with brick and mortar storefronts all together, and setting up shop in the web space only.

How are these new key players succeeding? They’re playing into trends like social media, they’re offering personal subscriptions, they’re customizing user experiences, and much more.
