SharedMall introduces a fundamental shift in online shopping that is a must for local businesses to effectively compete and counter the online threat
(PRWEB) November 09, 2012
Major online retail brands like Amazon* and eBay* have maintained a growing online advantage, leaving local businesses behind. Common People Services is disrupting the trend on SharedMall, an online marketplace where local businesses can readily sign up and automate their pickup and delivery ordering and compete online like never before.
Forbes.com recently reported the most powerful way to stop “showrooming” is for local businesses to allow customers to order online and pickup in-store. They cite a study with findings about how local businesses can effectively counter the threat from big online retailers on their own turf.
SharedMall employs strategies like those Forbes recommends, including automating online ordering for local delivery or in-store pickup, building a nationwide Buy Local infrastructure online, upgrading existing local business directories, increasing brand exposure, and instituting loyalty rewards programs.
With the introduction of a unique time-, schedule-, and location-sensitive shopping cart, local businesses including brick and mortar stores, restaurants, farms, and even service providers, can all now benefit from e-commerce and start taking automated orders and appointments even after closing the doors for the day. "SharedMall introduces a fundamental shift in online shopping that is a must for local businesses to effectively compete and counter the online threat," says Jatin Patro, the visionary behind SharedMall.
