The 90s saw the advent of marketing and sales via television- the good old series selling television viewers everything from weight loss products to fitness machines, clothes to shoes, home accents to cutlery and kitchenware, spiritual and religious items to technology and more, the list goes on.

And while all that was happening, the advent of the internet and its large expanse took over- shopping at the click of a mouse button whilst sitting in your PJs and flip-flops became the norm.

5 reasons to shop via your mobile

1. It’s faster, easier and so portable

Imagine rushing for work and you have an important client meet to attend this evening. It’s Friday and you’re dressed in smart casuals, but the client you would be meeting is a snob. Smart casuals wouldn’t impress him for sure and your office doesn’t allow personal internet access- what do you do? Look at your mobile for an answer- while you travel to work, log into your favourite shopping site, browse, pick and choose the look you want, and get it delivered as well- to your workplace. Mobile shopping is a life saver!

3. Living on the go

Who has the time to open their laptop and connect to the dongle to be online, and sometimes, signals for the dongle are so weak that it would take you ages for a shopping site to load. Pfft! While the world lives in the culture of being ‘on the go’- mobile shopping makes it easier for customers to shop.
