Everyone Can Compete on the New Global Playing Field

Think your business is too small for globalization?  If so, change your attitude because according to Jeremy Melis, Director of Small Business Marketing at UPS, size doesn’t matter.

“The world’s electronic commerce system has transformed retailers into e-tailers, attracting and retaining consumers around the corner and around the globe. So, brands of various sizes and scope can now compete on the new global playing field, valued at $2.3 trillion and projected to almost double by 2021,” says Jeremy.

So what’s a small business to do in order to compete?

Start small, take baby steps, and as Jeremy highlights, “Other advancements and technologies are also making it easier for small businesses to launch, manage and dominate in the world of e-commerce. The key is to understand the many options available to drive business to the next level.”

A quick thank you to UPS for their support to WEGG.  We could not provide the incredible educational programming at WEGG without them.

Mary Dillon: Making the World More Beautiful

screen-shot-2016-10-23-at-4-13-13-pmMary Dillon (pictured), who runs Ulta Beauty, a place where women can get all their beauty needs met, is bucking a trend.  Where many big name retailers are closing locations, the beauty retailer recently opened its 900th location, more than double the number five years ago.  The company reached total sales of $3.9 billion in 2015, nearly three times 2008 sales levels.

Will there be room for international growth at Ulta over the next couple of years?  That’s the question that begs to be asked.  With its rapidly growing e-commerce business, one would think so.
