E-Commerce Entrepreneurs Summit 2015: Sharing Insights and Strategies for Economic Growth
With the rainy season already here in the country, it's during this time that I prefer to mostly stay at home. As much as I love the cool breeze outside as compared with all the sweating I get during summer time, braving the unpredictable rains and getting my shoes and socks all soaked in flood water was never really appealing for me. Though I can wear again all my fancy jackets and hooded rain gears that makes me look like a cool model doing OOTD, a mysterious secret agent doing undercover, or a superhero on his way to fight my arch nemesis, I still prefer sporting just a collared shirt matched with jeans I've been wearing for weeks already plus my trusted comfy rubber shoes.
It is during these wet days that I love staying in bed and just transact online for both necessities and conveniences which are now quickly being one and the same. I'm talking about routine errands like paying monthly utility bills, and desirables like ordering the latest smartphone models at online shopping sites. It is surely very much convenient being able to fetch a taxi, order food, book a restaurant, a hotel or a flight within the comforts of your home with just a few clicks or swipes on our smartphones or tablets.
The digital natives embrace these technologies so much that they welcome all current and incoming technological conveniences especially those that can be accessed via mobile apps.The i-Metrics Asia Pacific Corporation report of between 7 to 13 % Philippines’ E-Commerce Intensity Index of our country's gross domestic product will soon quickly increase, while the E-Commerce Maturity Scorecard's average of 25% of Filipinos confidently using the Internet for both purchases and payment, has no other way to go but up.
It's probably because many of us are now into paperless online transactions. Though most if us are still tied up with traditional transaction procedures where we personally hand over our money to a human being, as soon as a majority of the digital natives get their own credit or bank accounts, all it needs right now is for the rest of us in business to accept e-commerce facilities as safe, secure and valid platforms where we can transact with trust and freely let our money flow, to eventually make the numbers go through the roof.
If we really want to lessen our fears of the seemingly intimidating but highly convenient world of e-commerce, then we advise you attend the 2015 DigitalFilipino E-Commerce Entrepreneurs Summit Manila that will be held this August 29, 2015 at the ballroom of Best Western Plus Antel Hotel located in Makati Avenue of Makati city.
