The growth of global traditional commerce trading value is gradually slowing, though e-commerce has rapidly grown in the past several years. Consumers and enterprise procurers have begun to move from offline to online. For those who have managed successful branding for their brick and mortar stores, unavoidable trends include:
• Breaking traditional management logic
• Developing diverse channels and e-commerce
• Concretely promoting and aggregating O2O operations
According to a survey carried out by professional e-commerce media, “We are Social”, those accessing the web make up 50 percent of the population worldwide. Among that number, e-commerce sales make up seven percent of overall sales value, and the growth rate of people using the Internet is around ten percent. As the Internet reaches into the future with consumer consumption habits constantly changing, e-commerce sales will continue to grow at a fast pace.
