Looking for a quick and easy way to prepare for the year ahead?
There’s no doubt the e-commerce industry will continue to evolve in 2021, but there are some trends that will continue to remain front and center. Like the proliferation of direct-to-consumer brands, for example. Or the importance of marketplaces. And the struggle for speedy fulfillment and shipping.
So before you begin to seek an entirely new approach for 2021, it pays to take a look back at the most popular strategies from 2020.
To help, we’ve pulled together some of ChannelAdvisor’s most clicked, viewed and shared e-commerce resources. Here are the five most popular ChannelAdvisor resources in 2020.
#5: COVID-19 Help Center for Brands & Retailers
The COVID-19 crisis upended our personal and professional lives and caused many businesses to reevaluate the way they were operating. In the spring of 2020, we created a resources page with information — including blogs, eBooks, webinars and more — specifically to help brands and retailers navigate the ongoing changes.
#4: Fulfillment Resources for Brands & Retailers
Many brands and retailers were justifiably concerned whether their various shipping partners will be able to deliver their packages in a timely fashion over the holiday season — and whether they’d even be able to maintain a profit. So we created a fulfillment resources center to help them determine the best strategies for their business through the holidays and into 2021.
