How to Build a Great B2B Platform

March 12, 2022 by · Leave a Comment 

For years, consumers have enjoyed online shopping and today, most people say they love making purchases online. This is due in part to how hard B2C commerce has struggled to perfect the whole customer shopping and buying experience. They’ve been successful because the latest reports show that 89 percent of Americans now shop online—and they love it! Online sales are a great place to create abundance in your business.

What we don’t hear much about is the B2B shopping experience. B2B commerce is an important segment of industry where billions of dollars change hands all over the world. But how well have B2B sites done when it comes to the customer buying experience? After all, it doesn’t matter if you’re selling to Microsoft, on the other end of the transaction there’s a real live human being making the final decision about the purchase.

With that in mind, can we take some of the valuable things we’ve learned about B2C commerce and apply them in the B2B venue? Or is there just too much difference in the two platforms? Many experts believe we can extrapolate much of what we’ve learned in B2C commerce and apply that to B2B sites without too much adaptation.

While each one has its pros and cons, selecting the right platform for your business may come down to specifics like:

What size business?

What industry?

Is there an inventory?

Will you be shipping internationally?

Your budget

How important is Self-Service?

The book, Create Abundance by Zhang Xinyue offers wisdom for business owners who want to create abundance in their personal and business lives. There are helpful suggestions about learning to meditate and let go of stress.
