3 Problems Facing Online Merchants
Declining Retail Sales
Have your wholesale and retail sales channels diminished? I can help your business move up the value chain finding new customers through direct-to-consumer, online marketplaces and drop shipping ecommerce opportunities.
Digital Talent Gaps
Digital workers rotate jobs more often due to a hard skill shortage, competition for top talent and organisation culture clashes. I can up-skill your current team or provide ecommerce managed services through a freelance virtual team managed by me.
