Our Emall.sg website and founder, LAU Wee Kiat, was mentioned in today's issue of URBAN in Straits Times (printed version 10 August 2012). We estimated that there are 3-5 new blog shops being added to Emall.sg directory every week. Out of the current 3800 listings in Emall.sg, more than 70% are blog shops. Blog shops are typical small online retailers who are using a free online blogging platform to offer their products - it does not come with online accounts management nor a shopping cart system.
This article looks at current e-business trend and covers that more blog shops are moving to brick and mortar physical retails.
