OnMax Host Digital - WordPress ECommerce Hosting

This is the end of October. It is time for you to get your next online store with Managed WordPress eCommerce Hosting from OnMax Host Digital. We make it very easy and fast with our 12-Step WordPress Website Go Live process.

The upcoming 2020 Holiday Shopping Season is unique in many ways. The effects of COVID-19 have been felt worldwide. Here in the United States, in the first two weeks of April 2020, the closure of non-essential businesses led to over 26.8 million people filing for unemployment.

Here's how, Heidi Shierholz, Senior Economist at the Economic Policy Institute in Washington, DC (USA): "What we are going through is traumatic on every level (...)." And this continues to be traumatic. The "Virus" has now become an official economic indicator.

But what does this has to do with WordPress eCommerce Hosting and what does have to do with you? Throughout history, bright minds have always remained focused and recognized opportunities in the midst of major times of crisis. This hour is no different. As social distancing has kept people apart from each other and jobs have proven to be unreliable for ensuring the financial stability of families, entrepreneurship offers great opportunities.

The question is how do you plan to take advantage of the coming 2020 Holiday Shopping season? Online is now the new normal. With less disposable income available and the need to stay safe, more people are turning to the Internet for their holiday shopping.

Though the unemployment rates have dropped compared to earlier during the pandemic, and in spite of the decline in the level of disposable incomes, online Mobile shopping is anticipated to hit over $310 Billions. Businesses are planning to run promotions earlier than usual. It is not late to begin to get your business online and to get ready to generate income and probably establish a new business.

Selling online is now the best and most effective way to start, launch, run your business and reach your customers worldwide. And OnMax Host Digital is committed to helping startups and businesses get their ideas online. Getting a beautiful website has never been easier and so much fun and you don't need technical skills to do it. For those who need help, our Website Design Experts will design a beautiful website for your business, optimize it, display it to the world with unparalleled performance and also manage it for you.
