Top B2B eCommerce Trends That You Should Look Out For
Posted by Alejandro Vasquez on 31 October 2019 10:00 AM

Keeping up with the latest trends is vital for anyone running a business. Dedicated entrepreneurs and online store owners should always be vigilant of the newest developments in technology, as well as the most recent research on customer behavior. If you are aware enough and quick-witted enough, you can make more informed decisions about everything related to your overall strategy: which innovations to use, which directions to take, and which updates to make on your website. Watching the trends for long enough may even allow you to set the trends yourself, placing you at the vanguard of your industry.

This is especially crucial for businesses that rely on B2B transactions. The average consumer has little need for studying the changes in the online market, nor for learning about the best new tools and resources in the world of eCommerce. However, if your customers are businesses, they may be learning everything they can about precisely those subjects, so they, too, can apply their knowledge to their own strategies. If you plan to sell to a customer, you must think like a customer. If you run a B2B enterprise, you must not just think like a business, but rather like a business customer.

Luckily, more than a few organizations and private companies on the internet also think like business customers. They know that plenty of people want to stay on top of any current developments, so they conduct research and release their findings. To help you stay one step ahead of competitors and customers alike, we have amassed some of the more notable results of recent studies. Feel free to take inspiration from our list of B2B eCommerce trends.

Marketing Your B2B Website for eCommerce Success
Posted by Alejandro Vasquez on 05 August 2019 10:00 AM

When people think of online stores, most of them think specifically of business-to-consumer retailers, also known as B2C stores. It only makes sense, as the largest shopping sites in the world generally follow this particular business model. When you visit and make a purchase on Amazon, Wal-Mart, or eBay, you almost always do so as an individual consumer. This may explain why the majority of eCommerce websites mimic these online giants and operate as B2C enterprises.

However, B2C is not the only possible route you could take as an internet-based entrepreneur. Instead of catering to consumers, you could encourage other businesses to make purchases from your own business. This is called business-to-business eCommerce, or B2B eCommerce. You probably know more examples than you think just from running an online business. These include graphic designers, call centers, marketing agencies, web and app developers, and, of course, eCommerce platforms.
