In today’s era, business and technology go hand in hand, especially after the phase of the covid 19 pandemic, everything has been digitized to a great extent. Technology has taken over the business market; even for starting a business, people require tech. There are thousands of efficient tools which can be used to run a successful business, here are some of them mentioned in detail.
- Content Management System
Today, people prefer shopping online rather than going to offline stores and purchasing their desired clothes or other stuff. About 2.14 billion consumers now shop online. People have started considering brands as valuable only if they have a website or a strong online presence.
For this, businesses have started building their websites before opening a shop. In earlier times, people used to open up a shop and then think of having a website, it’s the exact opposite today.
All of this is a part of digitization. But CMS (Content Management System) costs a lot of money if hiring a professional. The website’s domain name itself costs a lot, and updating it from time to time requires a lot of investment.
Especially those with excellent SEO features, which also add an online method for accepting payments and other catchy features to the website. All of this costs a lot and demands high investment from the businessman. But today, there are budget-friendly options as well, which have predetermined themes that let the website look fancy and likable by the customers.
- Mobile Marketing Tools
Mobile marketing tools have made it easy for the business to spread even without having offline customers. These tools help the business gain popularity by sending SMS, push notifications, app notifications, etc. Marketing tools have actually reduced the stress of businessmen.
A few examples of businesses using mobile marketing tools are-

Some of the most famous businesses still use email marketing, like- Zomato, to appreciate the customer and to tell them about deals. Swiggy also uses email marketing to attract customers using catchy email subjects.
