With the first quarter of 2021 already behind us, brands are forging ahead with the annual goals they set back in January while treading cautiously through an uncertain business climate.
Earlier this year, we surveyed over 100 eCommerce leaders from global brands to discover their priorities and growth plans heading into a post-Covid economy. Our survey focused on five key areas: 1.) marketplaces/channel strategies 2.) growth and expansion 3.) personnel alignment 4.) core capabilities 5.) new partnerships.
With eCommerce showing no signs of slowing down, you might be surprised to learn how leading brands incorporate their marketplace strategy as a critical function of their entire business model.
