“You only have to do a few things right in your business so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.”
Networking is certainly a “Right” thing to be done in business… Quotes Hirav Shah, Business Astrologer, Strategist & Adviser.
Hence, “your network is your net worth”. Network is a powerful tool that can make or break your business. And in today’s globalised world, it has become more important than ever to maintain a strong network of connections for your company, Says Hirav Shah, India’s Leading Business Guru & Astro-Strategist.
As we all know, the e-commerce business is exploding rapidly. Shopping online used to be a convenience and a luxury, now – it is a necessity. But starting an ECommerce business is hard work and demands many steps and decisions that need to come together at the right time.
Building an e-commerce business takes more than choosing a brand name, writing product listings, and starting to sell products online. Even your idea of starting a new business can fail if you are not driving enough traffic on your site and for that a very strong networking is inevitable.
On that note, Hirav Shah lists down effective strategies for networking in 2021 below..
1. Through Mobile Internet Connectivity
Networking with mobile internet connectivity service providers is very very vital.
E-Commerce customers are not bound by limited wired and Wi-Fi Internet connections. In the last 3-4 years, the number of users who access the Internet through a 3G connection has grown to round 22 Mn. Now compare this with the 15 Mn fixed line broadband connections accrued over the last 17 years, there is a notable difference.
Even though E-Commerce has spread its roots throughout the country, it still hasn’t reached the places where people have no broadband or no computer. M-Commerce or mobile E-Commerce is changing and only this can bring about a change. Networking, connections and collaboration with mobile internet connectivity providers has become all the more essential and has become the ‘need of the hour’.
2.Networking With Payment Apps/ Companies
Payments through mobile phones is a new mode of payment as an alternative to traditional methos like cash, cheque credit cards etc. A customer can use a mobile phone to transfer money or to pay for goods and services. A mobile payment could be made by an app, data connection, IVR and even SMS, so anyone who has a bank account can make a transaction. This could aid in reducing cash-dependencies of people.
3. Connecting With Sales Channels
Choosing and networking with your sales channels is vital.
One of the best ways to connect to new customers is to choose sales channels where they already shop. The right mix of sales channels will depend on your products and your target customers, but there are a number of great options that can complement and support your self-hosted store.
4.By Strengthening Existing Relationships
Strengthening existing relationships with stake holders, vendors, clients, partners and customers is really important.
Meanwhile, Networking allows people to see more of who you are and what service you can provide and deliver. This presents an opportunity for them to see more of your features and look at your value from a different perspective.
5. Networking, Collaborating & Partnering With Industries especially Healthcare
The cost of healthcare is high and mobile E Commerce can help to reduce it. By using the technology of mobile E Commerce, physicians and nurses can remotely access and update patient records immediately, a function which has often incurred a considerable delay in the past. This improves efficiency and productivity, reduces administrative overheads, and enhances overall service quality. Mobile technologies such as PDAs, Laptops or Tablet PCs can be of great value in hospitals and healthcare facilities by allowing better access to critical information – e.g. patient status, staff and patient location and facilities availability. Healthcare facilities that choose to adopt such technologies may be able to not only perform better but ultimately provide more efficient and better quality of care for patients.
Next, Hirav Shah Outlines The Various Advantages Of E-Commerce Networking Below:
1.Networking will make you more visible
One of the biggest perks of regular E-commerce networking is boosting your reputation and profile within your industry. The more people see your brand, learn the company’s name and know what you bring to the table, the more clout you will build (if you are engaging in positive and meaningful ways).
2.It can give you access to industry influencers
Another invaluable benefit of networking for the E-Commerce industry is, access to influential people who you would have a hard time getting in touch with otherwise.
3.It builds your social skills and confidence
This is an advantage of networking that people often overlook. As you network, the confidence and self-value of your brand can grow tremendously – ultimately making you more confident in what you have to offer.
4.It keeps you in the public eye
The more you network, the more likely you are to stay up-to-date on the business climate, news, and trends. It keeps you relevant and very much in the public eye.
Aspirants and all those, who are in E-Commerce business, struggling to make a mark and struggling to really make it happen, usually have self-doubts about them and their capabilities.
