On Your Watchlist – Movers and Shakers in eCommerce
Whatever industry you are involved in it always pays to keep your ears to the ground and keep yourself informed about any developments that could affect your own business in any way.
When you are running a business in something that is so fast-paced and evolving rapidly such as ecommerce it becomes even more important that you keep your finger on the pulse and understand what is driving and shaping the industry going forward. We have also shared an Infographic based on Top Seven (7) Ecommerce Influencers to Follow for Your Business Success and Growth.
You probably have your own ideas on how to create a niche and stand out from the crowd but even if that is the case, it is normally a good idea to pay attention to what some of the major players in the industry are saying and doing, so you can get a clearer idea of what is working for others, and what isn’t.
Probably the biggest player in e-commerce has to be Amazon and when the CEO has managed to amass a fortune estimated at around $70 billion, it is fair to assume that the man at the helm of Amazon, Jeff Bezos, doesn’t just have his finger on the pulse, he is also providing the heartbeat too.
He is just one of a handful of influential people who it is argued you should be watching in the eCommerce space to see what is going on and what plans are in the pipeline for the future.
Borrowing Good Ideas
As the saying goes, imitation is often considered the sincerest form of flattery and if you can take some of the Amazon founder’s business philosophies and use them to strengthen and grow your own business, there doesn’t seem to be too much wrong with that strategy.
This Infographic as developed by team Red Stag Fulfillment, singles out seven of the most influential movers and shakers in e-commerce and looks at their key business philosophies and strategies.
It is interesting to see how all of these highly successful people approach tasks like hiring new staff and growing the business organically. Some strategies and ideas might be similar, others more radical, but what isn’t up for debate is how successful they have been in putting these ideas into practice.
If you can learn from some of their mistakes or glean some valuable insights into how to build a loyal and growing customer base, or simply want to know what plans are in the pipeline for the future expansion of their business empires, there is good justification for putting these people on your watchlist.
