A lot of factors determine the success (or failure) of a business and recruiting the right people are in the top tier in this list.
But, when it comes to an e-commerce business, it's got to be at the top. If you own an e-commerce company, you may have discovered it by now; e-commerce recruiting is definitely not for the ‘faint-hearted’!
No doubt, e-commerce is a booming industry with unlimited potential. However, there is stiff competition for top talents. E-commerce requires expertise in diverse fields such as marketing, data analytics, software engineering, UX/UI – just to name a few. Moreover, challenges such as investment pressure, business optimization, mergers, consolidations etc also impact the employment scenario of this industry.
All these make recruiting the right group of talents even more important for the e-commerce industry. Of late, successful e-commerce companies have emphasized hiring the right talents, retaining the top talents, rationalizing the hiring process and on ‘skill-fit’ recruiting.
Another important thrust area for successful e-commerce companies is to maximize their profits with the help of global e-commerce. International expansion can provide them with important 'ammunition' to ensure continued growth. By venturing into global e-commerce, they can increase buyer attention, optimize costs, reduce risks and can amplify trust & brand awareness.
Is international expansion a ‘piece of cake’?
Not at all! International expansion is not as straight forward as it seems in the very first place. E-commerce companies face many challenges while selling their products abroad. Buyers in different countries have their own priorities and values and these impact their purchasing decisions. What is popular in one country may not sell at all in another one. Additionally, communication is another barrier while selling products in international markets. English is not the preferred language in many countries and people out there mostly like to do e-commerce activities in platforms designed in their own languages.
Be it recruiting, global e-commerce or international expansion, you need to develop an efficient strategy to overcome the inherent challenges. Then only you can ensure that your customers receive an enriching experience, all throughout.
