Consumerism at its finest
Shopping trends are on the up and up. According to Selz.com, a leading provider of e-commerce solutions, online shopping and e-commerce is expected to grow by 8 to 12% in the next few years, up to over $420 billion in the US alone. About 80% of people buy things online, and industry forecasts suggest online spending in the US will cross $630 billion in just two more years.
Why is this so? The first explanation is that the ease and simplicity with which things can be bought and replaced is so high. If you lose your umbrella, or your drill stops working, it’s sometimes easier to buy a new one instead of looking for the lost one or taking the damaged item in for repairs.
Doing things this way, however, is clearly very inefficient, and with this approach, people tend to buy things they don’t really need, or they buy things they need for only very short periods of time. The bottom line, though, is that billions of dollars’ worth of products are bought in this way every year, and if we look beyond the ease of buying things, we find that there are scientific explanations for needless purchases, too. People sometimes buy things they don’t need because of a desire to impress others, because they buy out of habit, because they tend to make impulse purchases, because they fall for advertising too easily, or because they think that more purchases are an investment for the future, as outlined here.
In addition to the above, there is another interesting reason why unnecessary purchases are so commonplace: neglecting creative solutions to problems at hand. This is where ECrent comes in.
ECrent – creating markets and generating value
ECrent is fast becoming the largest and most extensive online global rental platform where you can rent online instead of buying online. Instead of buying that replacement part or changing something even before it has lived its useful life, ECrent allows you to rent that item at a fraction of the cost.
Some of the most underused items in the home are cleaning tools (everything from dust catchers to washing machines), sports equipment, games, and even books, clothing, furniture, and electronics such as Xboxes and other consoles and gaming devices. Many of these items are purchased during spring when people clean their homes from top to bottom or are free and on vacation, but the items are then left unused until the next year. Why not put them to good use by uploading them to our platform and renting them out to make some money?
Not just products but services as well
Beyond renting out household items and unused products, ECrent is also an online employment marketplace in which you can find part-time jobs, hire someone on short notice to help you with anything from running errands to babysitting, or find people who share similar interests and want to hire you or work with you on a project. In this way, ECrent is a fantastic platform for self-employment, earning some extra pocket money, and generating a steady income stream by regularly renting out household items and adding to your product portfolio.
Beyond the benefits of providing users access to a comprehensive suite of services that include simple, reliable, and user-friendly options for listing products, renting products out, finding work opportunities, and making safe and secure online transactions, ECrent provides the following benefits as well:
• You can find short-term accommodation and transportation, and make payments as well, all from the ECrent website – no more hopping across different sites to find what you need
• You can rent anything you need for spring cleaning, or rent out extra materials that you have on hand
• You no longer need to purchase anything and can make use of items available with people who have extra, unused products on hand
• You can earn money from your personal belongings that are not in use, such as vacuum cleaners, tools, and more
• You can help reduce carbon emissions by cutting waste, increasing the extent to which you utilize the things you already have, and helping to create a sharing economy in which other people get to do the same
