Here at diamond we have seen a huge rise in clients selling within the CBD sector - cannabidiol, one of the many cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, found in marijuana and hemp. CBD is not psychoactive (i.e. won’t make you squiffy) but is said to have many health benefits such as relieving pan, reducing anxiety and depression and is alleged to even help acne. CBD can be bought in the form of oils, supplements in pill or gummy forms, sprays or cream to apply directly to the area of concern. As the global market is supposedly expected to grow to $20 BILLION (!), according to a report by Rolling Stone, it may be worth investigating.
Most people start an online business with a plan to bring about a better lifestyle – more time with family or an additional source of income. In our experience though, the reality of running an online business can massively differ from that original plan. Ecommerce can be an unpredictable beast. From the expected sales peaks throughout the year to the unexpected high demand..

In February diamond began to see the impact of Covid 19 on the supply chain of our fulfilment clients who sourced their products from China. In the early stages they ended up with an initial backlog of sales and consequently some unhappy clients, impatient for delivery. Well, we are the Prime generation, right! Then when lockdown hit in March SO many of them sold out within days or weeks having seen in some cases a 1000% increase in sales overnight. So this missed out on potentially life-changing sales. Luckily many of them have now ordered and have goods back in stock – gym gear, nail products, paddleboards, electronics, alcohol-free drinks – demand is far outstripping supply.

Yesterday we got the first hint of when the shops will start to re-open. It would be great to think for our retail industry that the light has been turned back on at the end of the tunnel, but the reality is the face of retail has changed forever.
