E-Commerce marketing tactics!
We all live in an era where digitization is the new vogue.
It has pulled every industry into its claws of immense modernization and this ‘not-very-new’ trend is highly popular on the internet.
Fisheries to groceries, rack to stack, cab to tab, everything is now online. And as we know, this phenomenon calls itself E-Commerce, which introduces the process of buying and selling goods/services online. It also involves the process of online money transactions and data collections for the above-mentioned process.
A common misconception might occur that, e-commerce refers only to online shopping sites.
No! E-Commerce means availing of any service online. Be it online shopping sites, virtual assistants, online banks, Internet Security, social networking, etc. Basically, any kind of servicing and transaction of money that takes place via the Internet is categorized under E-Commerce.

But, as the world underwent and is still going through a pandemic, and with the customers being locked up in their houses, the businesses understood the importance of E-Commerce and its growing rules.
