Wholesalers and distributors come in all sizes. Many sell to business buyers in one or multiple markets, and most wholesalers and distributors are reaching new customers through online sales. This webinar will provide key insights into how to find success at B2B ecommerce in wholesale distribution.
This webcast features key highlights from the Digital Commerce 360 B2B Distributor 300 report, which breaks down B2B ecommerce sales and growth trends among 300 U.S. distributors and wholesalers of varying sizes. Data in the report shows how ecommerce is advancing at different rates in each of six important product categories. In addition, the case study highlights from the B2B Distributor 300 offer useful examples of how wholesalers and distributors in various industries are creating websites and mobile apps that let them serve their customers better—winning new business as a result.
During the webinar, researchers from Digital Commerce 360 will break down the ecommerce data and explain what it means for B2B distributors and wholesalers in today’s increasingly ecommerce-centric world. In addition, a distribution executive will present how their company built a modern technology infrastructure from the ground up and how that investment is paying off in growing online sales and new customers.
