Small Business eCommerce Offensive

Do you operate a small business with little to no online sales? Realize zero effort eCommerce shipping, new eCommerce website and enhanced marketing messaging in as little as 14 days for $0 up-front investment.

A group of order fulfillment, website development and marketing expert firms have banned together to empower small businesses to thrive in these dynamic times by going on an online selling offensive.

Overview

Before the COVID-19 pandemic and 2020 recession, online purchases accounted for 14.5% of all retail sales in the US. Current estimates place online sales as high as 80% of all retail sales. Our economy will recover, and brick-and-mortar retail sales will return in time, but the percentage of eCommerce sales is expected to remain elevated.

As fellow small business owners we want to do our part to help you succeed during these uncertain economic times, as well as navigate internet retail sales in the long term, which is why we’re providing “offensive” resources you can use to take more control of your future.

What Are the Benefits?

  • No up-front costs
  • Flexible support model
  • Enhanced marketing strategy and messaging
  • New or improved eCommerce website
  • No effort required for eCommerce order fulfillment

Who Are the Partners Involved?

A growing number of fellow small businesses and organizations including IndustryStar, Serendip, and Fanzoo Technology, along with marketing experts, have combined resources to form a “Small Business eCommerce Offensive Consortium” to empower business owners to thrive in a more eCommerce focused environment and get our economy back on a path to growth.

If you’d like to join this consortium and/or support in any way, please contact us directly at (734) 794-3072 or info@industrystar.com.
