According to Forbes , ecommerce will account for 20.4% of global retail sales by the end of 2022, up from only 10% five years ago. COVID-19 sped up this trend, with stay-at-home orders forcing consumers to shift their purchasing behaviors and shop more online than they might have before.

While there are no crystal balls to predict the ebb and flow of the market through disastrous events like a pandemic, there are a number of ways you can prepare your company to adapt and scale. By strengthening your company today, you’re future proofing it for tomorrow.

You can integrate your ecommerce product feed with these platforms and tag specific products or services in your social posts that users can click on and purchase immediately.

Platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram now offer specific “shopping” tabs in their apps so customers can browse products from companies they might not be following already.
