    How To Ensure That Your Digital Business Is Capable Of Thriving During These Trying Times?

    Facing fewer dine-ins and reduced footfall during these trying times? You are probably feeling the pressure to digitalise your business, given that the COVID-19 Pandemic severely affects brick-and-mortar business models. However, SMEs Digitalisation can be difficult and tedious, with the SME Digital Transformation Survey revealing that only 2 out of 5 digital transformations are successful. 

    With digital advancements accelerating, placing your business in the digital space is more important than ever. Thus, Advocado and Verz Design are collaborating to work together and offer you three solutions in one package, at only a fraction of the market cost.

    Myth: Building a Website for Your Business is More Costly In The Long Run

    A common misconception is that it is rather costly for a business to build a website. In addition, businesses are more likely to incur losses due to the likelihood of their websites being ineffective. This is untrue. 

    According to the Major Purchase Shopper Study by GE Capital Retail Bank, approximately 81% of people conduct research through the Internet on a business or service before coming to a decision. That is a significant number of potential customers you are missing out on by lacking an E-commerce website. 

    Moreover, a website functions as a full-time 24/7 salesman for your business. It can help in attracting and building customers’ desires to purchase your products and services. With Advocado’s AI-Ready CRM system in place, marketing automation consistently re-engages your clients with automated reminders of discounts and offers. You can expect steady growth and an increase in revenue in the long run with minimal downtime.
