The traditional business is transforming to Digital. Most of the businesses are converting their existing models to the current era of the digital model. Online presence has become a necessity for all the business entities. Whether it is an enterprise or an SME, Online presence is a must. I have been interacting with most of my clients. I have found there is a steep increase in the numbers of clients asking for e-commerce websites and mobile apps. This is because consumers are buying everything online. The marketplace has shifted online. As per the statistics website, 40% of worldwide internet users have bought products online i.e. more than 1 billion users. This shows the importance of online presence for a website.

An online presence does not mean having a small website of (2-3 pages) your own with contact details. It should be a virtual extension of your business. The customers who are getting landed on your website should clearly understand your business, products, services, and details of your physical presence. The number of digital buyers in India alone is expected to reach 41 million by 2016. The leading apparel e-retailer has 26.26 million unique visitors in October 2014. This shows that the number of online buyers is high in statistics as compared to traditional buyers.

Out of 10 people, 9 have internet ready devices with them. As per the TOI statistics, the online buyers in 2015 were 55 million and it is expected to grow to 80 million this year in India. The e-commerce Industry is expected to cross $100 billion marks in the next five years. The online shoppers to go up to 175 million by 2020 (economic times). These statistics give us an idea of the importance of online business.
