Phenomena of Online Bookstore
There is a lot of of technical
innovation all over world and internet has altered the traditional working style.
Advantage & opportunities accessible via internet doesn't need the introduction.
The human lifestyle also has been changing as well as doorstep services are getting
availed for everything. Shopping of books online has as well changed
over past some years. Although traditional ways of shopping for the books
remains interested, many book lovers are totally aware of these new phenomena as
well as look ahead for shopping for online books. Book lovers have many choices
to buy textbooks on internet. Furthermore, the orders are been delivered
to your doorsteps. What will get better than this that?
However, does this mean
traditional bookstores are now heading for redundancy? Would the obituary be
written? Fact of a matter is internet is a way to be. Thus, wide range of traditional
bookstore in world, have understood the increasing demand of the footfalls in such
stores. With bookstores online giving vast discounts of over 10% to 40%
and rising costs of the real estate maintenance is the reason why the traditional
bookstores now feel totally challenged. For this reason many of them are
changing the business model for moving in a cyberspace. Lots of brick & mortar
stores are steadily creating the internet presence, which gives value that adds
beyond "buy books" tagline. Although e-books are the age away,
physicality of the books is prevalent that will mean that bookstores online
will need to physically send these books to a person that has ordered.
But, the bookstore business online
might still be losing out money as well as logistics can be the issue, although
in near future, they are totally bound to get profitable, as many consumers know
potential benefits to be delivered the book straight to their home! From now
primary constraint facing bookstores online is that clients are careful of
using the credit card on internet. There are many online book store that
offer 24/7 and 365 days services that brings to reader the opportunity of buying
books on internet from the large variety of titles (over 100,000 titles) from all
over the world. They as well give home delivery for free via courier anywhere
in the world for best convenience of a user. In order, to overcome this challenges
posed by business world today, we see the businesses adapting & learning
new methods to retain the competitive edge in the business.
We also see bookstores doing same
and lots of bookstores have accepted this fact that internet is out there to
stay, thus they have opened their own sites to help customers in the shopping
for the books. They give services like booking books, buying & updating clients
on the upcoming books. The disadvantage of bookstores online is that one
needs to know title of a book and author's name in advance to search up the books
on online bookstores. Though one will browse these books in collection, just
those books, which have the good reviews & are amongst top will get browsed
leaving these books, which have the good content however no reviews.
