Make Your Global Online Shoppers Feel at Home Wherever They Are

wegginar_NOV_2018_website

Registration is still open for our FREE November 7th, 2018 wegginar®, with presenter Cristina Bandal, Industry Segment Manager of Retail and Consumer Goods for UPS.

Cristina has an extensive career with UPS, working within the marketing functions. She has worked with merchants in the retail and high tech industries. Cristina makes customer experiences valuable, by improving the shopper’s experiences. Her most recent assignment helps enable merchants to sell outside the US through UPS technology.

If 95% of the worlds population lives outside the US, why are some merchants still only selling to the domestic market? Complex rules, costly risks and high transportation costs make it difficult for small businesses to merge into new markets. UPS i-parcel not only offers a solution to these merchants, but provides a frictionless experience to international consumers.

wegginar® participants can expect to learn how to…

  1. Offer international consumers the same shopping experience on your website that you offer to shoppers in the US.

  2. Avoid complicated and costly international shipping that will ultimately improve your conversion rate.
  3. Enable new international markets with just a click and reach a world of consumers.
  4. Make your online shoppers feel at home anywhere

wegg® aims to make resources for going global accessible to all women entrepreneurs, and our wegginars® are free thanks to our sponsors. To register for the event, visit this link: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/8810009934736118275 

There’s No Shortage of Ideas in Dubai

As with entering any new market, you must do your homework, be at the right place at the right time, select a good idea, rely on a little luck and have the finances to support your effort.  Dubai is a worth a look but explore with caution.

Unfortunately, many who enter the market do so without an in-depth study of the potential risk possibilities, competitive analysis, or roadblocks for the product or service they are looking to represent. There are government rules and requirements needed to bring a product into the country, and not doing your due diligence can cause your product to be stuck at customs for months, or completely rejected causing great expense to any new business owner.

There’s absolutely no shortage of business ideas in Dubai, making it difficult to come up with something fresh and something new.  So choose a brilliant idea (something no one else is doing), be diligent, do your homework and prepare for success.

The Case of a Shortage of Foreign Female Entrepreneurs in the U.S.A.

Where are the foreign female entrepreneurs?

The article, “Why aren’t there more foreign female entrepreneurs?” by Priya Alagiri examines the reason why there is a shortage of foreign women entrepreneurs in the United States.

One reason stated is:

The foreign women I interviewed also said that they’ve found it difficult to succeed because the “silicon ceiling” inhibits them from obtaining funding from private investors. According to them, investors are mostly white American men who gravitate toward their own. Investors themselves have said, quite bluntly, that there does exist a bias against funding women, let alone immigrant women. One investor, for example, has said that “a ton of us decide not to invest, support, promote or work with women because of this whole ‘marriage / pregnancy’ hurdle that most women will face in their career.”
