Knowing the customer
The impatience and the level of demand for e-commerce customers is growing. Millennials will rise to purchase decision makers. They will bring in a new customer segment “video only”. In addition, the customer segment “mobile only” continues to grow.
Make sure your Online Store provides interesting features for all target groups in both communications and technology. Customer understanding is important in every phase of the purchase flow. Customer understanding and experience will become the most important asset of your online store.
Even small retailer can win a big race in the global market
It’s common to think that an online store who can sell more cheaply or with a wider range is the only one to succeed in global markets. However, a small player can win the race by focusing on smaller niche markets or products and linking actions to the customer’s passions. Instead of price competition, focus on your strengths and build a story where the customer wants to be involved.
