The boom of eCommerce isn’t slowing, last year, Australians dropped a total of A$28.6 billion on online shopping. So it’s no surprise that there is expected to be a 15% increase in online shopping in Australia for 2019. As the landscape increases in demand, competition increases with it, bringing a need for eCommerce to improve production processes and develop innovative ways to engage with their customers.
Predictions are that eCommerce store owners will need to rely more heavily on content and experiences to compete. According to Big Commerce the trend for 2019 will include precision marketing (highly targeted ad spend), employing experienced ad buyers, developing consumable content, focusing on community building and highly engaging experiences and bringing offline back to the consumer.
Clik Collective was founded in Kensington and was followed in 2018 with Clik Collective Moorabbin. The spaces are dedicated eCommerce warehouses with office spaces and cater for both eCommerce and service businesses. The benefits for eCommerce are reflective of the trends predicted by Big Commerce. As large corporate businesses offshore and introduce technology resulting in less workforce, highly skilled professionals jump at the chance to operate a profitable business that will ultimately provide greater flexibility and lifestyle.
WCM digital have called Clik home since it opened and have grown rapidly as a result.
