Many older sales leaders in older companies are dealing with sales drop if they have not embraced online sales. They have been used to their way of making money for the company, and it has likely not been focused online.
Many leaders know that times are changing because they see it happening daily as companies close or restructure. Some of these sales leaders feel as if their experience and knowledge will become obsolete. This is far from true.
HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The online world is changing this very minute. Freelancers and companies are currently making applications that are simplifying the online experience and making them the preferred method by consumers.
Did you know that even buying groceries online is currently growing like crazy? Well it is and you can’t stop it. You should not want to anyways.
For years Amazon reigned supreme. It is often suspected as the reason why many businesses struggle today.
If a business did not strategically jump on eCommerce before, they have a high chance of closing. But no to worry. Amazon is currently facing a tidal wave of challengers this very second and things are going to get interesting.
FORGET THE PAST AND MOVE FORWARD
It’s time for you to take online operations seriously. You don’t have a spare minute to waste because if you do, you could likely lose your precious job due to low sales. Worst of all you can run the company you work for into the ground and make it another one of those companies that closed because of failure to embrace online operations.
You as a leader need to get back on the front lines and take charge. And guess what… you don’t need to be a technology, marketing, and eCommerce guru. A tidal wave of Amazon challengers are already sending some of Amazons many businesses to the stone age.
New technology is being created and tested daily that will create better shopping experiences than Amazon. Therefore, what you need to is educate yourself on whats going on now and partner with these companies to bring your company back to the top.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO RIGHT NOW
If we look on Indeed.com, we can find what seems to be an endless amount of people who say they are online marketing or eCommerce professionals. But are they really? Just because they are young does not mean they have the skills. Just because they made a do-it-yourself Wix website does not mean they have the experience. Far from this folks.
What you should do right now is not hire but instead contract. Why? Because you think you know what you need but very likely don’t even have a clue. The amount of complexities today outnumber that of even 5 years ago. So don’t think about hiring right now, instead seek an online eCommerce consultant that will guide you to bring together your plan of action or even build your new department. Did I say build departments? Yes I did, because that is what we are talking about doing in some cases.
You can also opt to contract an employment agency with experience in providing with professional eCommerce and online personnel.
