The Future Of Business
Our World is Changing
As more people log onto the Internet, our world is changing around us. Families are becoming connected through the versatility of e-mail – written and read any time of day. School children search the web for a project finding bright images and pages of information on virtually any topic. Banks offer their clients the convenience of online banking to review balances, transfer funds, and pay bills.
Now even the way we shop is changing. Because of technological advances we have the convenience of 24-hour shopping and home delivery just a mouse click away.
The History of Retail
In the 1950’s shoppers traveled to Main Street to make their purchases. Later in the 1960’s and in the 1970’s stores were built in a large rural complex and shoppers could finish much of their shopping with one visit to the mail. Then in the 1980’s and 1990’s, shoppers were lured away from away from the mail to the superstore offering significant discounts on a wide variety of products.
The revolution in Commerce has just begun, are you prepared to profit from it?
The Future Has Arrived
As we embark upon the 21st century, people are discovering the flexibility of the Internet and the reliability of product information leading to qualified purchases. Without the overhead of middlemen and operating a traditional store, suppliers are passing the savings onto the Internet shopper like never seen before!
