3 Ways to Improve Your Focus and Sell More Online

InventoryGo multi- (or omni) at your own risk, or follow these steps

Recently it has become clear that multitasking can be detrimental to both our productivity and our health. Research has found that multitasking inhibits our ability to successfully carry out simultaneous tasks, it can lower the IQ as much as 15 points, and increase the brain’s production of the stress hormone cortisol. It’s likely no coincidence that mindfulness and meditation are now all the rage. So whether you’re crunching your morning granola or creating a profitability spreadsheet, it’s all about paying attention, narrowing your focus, and clearing your thoughts.@ParagMamnani explains 3 ways to improve your focus and #sell more #online. #Unify Click To Tweet

Counter-intuitively, trends in e-commerce insist upon diversification, spreading sales resources across both marketplaces and platforms, and employing a variety of specialized apps to run different parts of your business. If you plan to make any money in online retail, you’d better be able to manage multiple channels across geographic regions—in fact, among Webgility’s thousands of multi-channel customers, the average number of stores managed is 4 to 5. To up the complexity ante, those sellers who want to get and stay ahead of the technology curve need to become omnichannel, making sure their products are purchasable from any device or platform.  

For those interested in having their e-commerce cake and eating it mindfully too, here are three ways to fine-tune your focus while successfully building a multi-faceted online retail empire. Continue reading

“Do you mind if we dance with your data?”

Sales-ForecastingHow e-commerce businesses can turn an awkward liability into an earning asset

It’s not news that the world of e-commerce sales is changing every second of every day. Fifteen years ago, businesses were beginning to experiment with e-commerce, selling products on a marketplace or through an online store, and most were relying on an Excel file to track sales or using QuickBooks for accounting. At the end of each month or quarter, sales data was sent over to an accountant or bookkeeper to manually sift through—and this could take up to a month. Once the sales data was entered, there was still no guarantee that anyone would be able to truly understand the financial health of the business.How to make your data dance with the business instead of against it. #Unify Click To Tweet

Fast forward a few years and e-commerce has grown at hyper-speeds globally, on social media, on every known device, and in the cloud. What’s more, now there are dozens of different sales channels on which to sell, fragmenting the massive amounts of sales data and adding more mystery to the puzzle. Unfortunately, this data still needs to be compiled, reconciled, analyzed, and acted upon for accounting and tax compliance, let alone for business development or growth. Sure, there are dozens of business applications standing by to help carry the data load, but often these apps are not integrated with one another, making relevant info ever more siloed. Suddenly the work has exceeded the scope of bookkeepers and accountants and even e-commerce business owners, who are often left with no resources to help them grow their businesses. Continue reading
