eCommerce has exploded over the last decade and the pandemic propelled it even further forward at a record rate.
In 2020, consumers spent over $861 billion online with U.S. retailers, a 44% increase from 2019. Globally, eCommerce generates 10% of all retail sales, with an anticipated 15% year-on-year growth rate.
But as with any rapidly growing market, there is always a corresponding spike in competition. Estimates show there are now more than 24 million eCommerce websites. And that means less room for error. But developing a clear strategy for growth is easier said than done.
So when eCommerce founders are grappling with how best to scale up their business, podcasts are one of the first places they turn to for advice. They want to hear tips and insights from those further along the journey to help guide their own decision making.
