Digital export expert can answer technology queries

The North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with UK Trade & Investment, is providing a drop-in clinic on April 7 to meet with Joseph Darwen, UKTI specialist International Digital Trade & Ecommerce Adviser.

Those interested can book a 30 minute, one-to-one advisory meeting to look at the digital channels, E-Marketplaces and eCommerce platforms. For early stage exporters or growth exporters, the meetings will provide a unique introduction to the technology, tools and opportunities available for a successful digital export strategy, including:

  • E-Marketplaces – e.g. Amazon, Alibaba, La Redoute
  • Ecommerce – optimising sales & leads on your website
  • Localisation – translation, payments, shipping
  • Digital Marketing – SEO, PPC, Social Media, Email
  • Logistics – fulfilment, 3PL, customer service, tax/VAT

The global eCommerce industry saw impressive growth in 2015 with goods and services worth $1.5 trillion bought by shoppers via desktops, tablets and smartphones. This growth trend is set to continue with B2C Business-to-consumer eCommerce market value to exceed $3.2 trillion by 2020, and B2B Business-to-business forecast to double this for $6.7 trillion.

As Mobile Commerce (or ‘M-Commerce’) continues its rapid growth, consumers choosing to shop from mobile and tablet devices accounts for up to 50-75 per cent of global eCommerce transactions.

A responsive website, cross-device marketing, social media strategy, SEO, and PPC advertising are real drivers for online retail and present a range of opportunities to internationalise and maximise your digital export strategy.
