How to improve your global e-commerce strategy

Be aware of different needs

The perfect global e-commerce strategy serves different customer needs in every region you operate in. Apart from that, business growth and increased online sales will greatly depend on your commerce platform, which should complement your e-commerce strategy.

Centralize your global e-commerce

Keeping the costs down is obviously a very effective way to improve your global e-commerce initiative. Operating different e-commerce solutions in different countries, however, takes a lot of effort, money, time, and expertise. Leading B2B firms opt for a centralized approach which enables them to balance their global e-commerce strategy and regional needs.

Research is key in global trade

Demand for your products and services may differ in each market. This is partly due to the level of awareness of your brand, and partly to the size and maturity of your partner network and country sales organization. So, before you launch a global trade in a new country, create a localized marketing plan and determine which global e-commerce strategies will work best to support future growth.

Intergrate all your network in your global e-commerce platform

When developing your global commerce strategy, it's important to understand the country-specific business models and supply chains. We recommend to choose a commerce platform that is flexible enough to support all business models, such as direct sales, direct-to-consumer, online sales, indirect sales via wholesalers and business partners, marketplaces, etc.
