In an increasingly borderless trading environment, growing your business at home and overseas often means using an approach that uses the full spectrum of available digital and non-digital channels.
Retail is evolving fast and digital malls are the most significant new type of channel to emerge in recent years. They offer a new type of sales channel that is trusted by consumers and the operators understand the requirements of brand owners.
Digital malls offer significant scale and access to consumers at lower go to market costs than traditional routes to market and therefore offer improved margins. With over sixty digital malls worldwide UKTI can support your business to access them and get the most from selling and marketing on these platforms.
If you are a retailer and want to expand your business internationally through digital malls in either one region or in multiple regions, email Edward.Donald@uktispecialist.com and we will be in touch with details on how to get started.
We are also interested to hear from brands who already exporting through these digital channels, or digital experts who have specialist skills relevant to this area (eg web design, legal, logistics, social media selling) and who are willing to share their experience to increase the digital capabilities of SMEs and our network. If you want to be part of this bank of industry experts, please email Edward.Donald@uktispecialist.com and we will be in touch with details on how we can work together.
In addition to the expertise bank of industry experts, UKTI will soon be offering support to businesses to enhance their digital capabilities through our network of international trade advisers and a new team of digital advisors.
