Why should I bother with ecommerce?

Every day, more consumers shift their spending to online marketplaces. By 2022 the total US ecommerce market is expected to surpass 700 billion US dollars. This means that businesses relying mostly on traditional brick and mortar retail will need to diversify their revenue channels.

Tapping into this market represents an incredible opportunity, but it isn’t easy.

Why hasn’t this been done before?

Ecommerce agencies and content management platforms that assist in centralizing and publishing products across various marketplaces require a minimum threshold of content and data quality in order to be successful. The problem, however, is that many businesses can’t reach the minimum threshold or just scrape together the bare minimum.

Currently, working with raw, decentralized, and unorganized data is complicated, expensive, and time consuming. Our approach refines the process, making the creation of great data feasible.

Do people actually buy home furnishings on the internet?

Absolutely. Furniture and home furnishings ecommerce revenue in the United States was 65.1 billion US dollars in 2018 and is projected to increase to 100 billion US dollars by 2022.
