Strategies for growing your ecommerce sales

Ecommerce is said to be growing 250% faster than traditional retail. The number of digital buyers around the world is on the increase. According to Econsultancy, 45% of global shoppers buy from overseas stores.

General ecommerce growth is steady and is rising more quickly than UK domestic sales. In fact, the UK makes up less than 10% of the current global ecommerce market.

No wonder that…

… the UK retailer ASOS has become a global business with over 60% of its business coming from overseas. Offering a fully localised buying experience to their key international markets helped ASOS achieve this ecommerce success.

If you haven’t started selling your product internationally, now may be time to do so. But …

Facts most online sellers didn’t know about eBay

Seasonality is often overlooked or misinterpreted by many international e-tailers. Many of them are not aware of local events that drive sales figures. It’s also interesting that in Cross Border Trade we observe different seasonality trends than on domestic markets. There is a reason for that and there’s a way of using this to your advantage.

There are so many useful online sales facts that don’t come up at the click of your finger. There are so many details that tend to be overlooked by eBay sellers. There are silent sales deal makers or … breakers: find out what they are.

  • What sells best where?
  • What is the best time to sell your items?
  • Is there a perfect time of year for selling products from a particular category?
  • What can be overlooked when you trade across countries?

The future of international sales on Amazon

Thanks to Amazon, global buyers and sellers can benefit from Cross-Border Trading. They can order almost everything from almost everywhere and Amazon is a key player in this respect. It may be primarily associated with the US, but Amazon has established marketplaces across continents.

In the future, we’re likely to see more sellers trading across borders, which means that there will be more competition, in particular when it comes to the fashion category, and more sellers trying to win the European buyer.

European e-tailers may worry that the incoming low-margin or high-volume sellers will start a pricing war on Amazon. Amazon sellers must be ready for new challenges.

How can European sellers prepare for the coming future, challenges and new trends?

Customer experience is key to long-term business success

91% of unhappy customers don’t complain, but simply leave. No news is not good news.

It all comes down to customer experience and the level of customer satisfaction.

Over 60% of customers switch brands due to poor service. More than half are happy to pay extra for a guaranteed good experience. Guaranteed means that it’s not about the promise of a great experience, but the actual great customer experience.

This is what makes customers happy and satisfied. A satisfied customer will come back to you or even promote your business.

  • How to produce satisfied customers?
  • How to transform unhappy clients into promoters of your brand?

How to address the actual needs of global online sellers

Today the technology for selling products internationally is available to businesses of all sizes. This availability, however, doesn’t mean that it’s a straightforward task to give retailers an affordable solution that will multiply their revenue.

It’s not only about translating product offers and waiting for foreign customers to place orders with you. In fact, it’s about the full localization process that involves translation, ensuring low international shipping rates, currency and size conversion as well communication with foreign buyers and local marketing.

The costs of tools to take care of all this can be a real blocker for many sellers. And what if they were to do this manually on their own? It’d be far from hassle-free. It’d surely distract ecommerce sellers from the real focus, e.g. business management and growth.

Webinterpret well understands the importance of an online sales solution that is affordable and makes the complex translation and localization process simple and effortless. We want every online seller, not only big players, to have the chance to multiply their income by selling internationally. We finally have the answer on how to do so.

How to develop a product that addresses the current needs of international online sellers?
