Ecommerce News Roundup | 5 September 2022

Winter is coming!

We try to stay optimistic in this newsletter but there is no point pretending that there aren’t considerable headwinds everywhere you look.

My half-formed thought is that there will be alot of change over the next 18 months.  The last time we had alot of change was about 18 months ago!  In hindsight, Covid was very beneficial for ecommerce but it was not an obvious outcome at the start.

People’s behaviours will change drastically in the next few months and adaptability will be key to personal and corporate survival and success.

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
