Many folks operating in various segments of the global Halal industry ask this question? How could they successfully run a Halal e-commerce business? A short answer might be, ” Just start it” or “Be relentless in whatever business you pursue”. But, of course, we need a longer answer with other details if any of our readers want to get practical advice on how to pursue their luck in the Halal e-commerce industry.
Today, we plan to give you a somewhat detailed answer to these questions when the global Islamic economy is expanding rapidly. It is valued at more than US$6 trillion. New players are regularly entering the market to grab the ever-growing share of the Halal pie.
Gone are the days when people would be able to rank their e-commerce websites at the top and start getting orders almost immediately. Search engines have become a lot smarter than before. They will rank your website only if it is designed professionally, has lots of valuable content, and is doing well in terms of online marketing.
All of the above is true. However, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has provided us a chance to rethink our potential Halal eCommerce businesses and start offering any products and/or services that we feel comfortable with.
