So You Think You Can eCommerce?

The eCommerce develops quickly but blind. Everyone has his own answer when being asked what the eCommerce is, because it is hard to give a definition. So what the eCommerce is in the end is topic of this article.

Electron + Business= Commercial Electron

With the fast development and wide usage of computers and internet, many IT companies begin to establish electronic information platform such as Taobao, eBay and Monster which partly supply the personal demand for information or consumer.

Meanwhile, Alibaba, Global sources, Made-in-China.com are well-known platforms in B2B industry. Such platforms attract many companies to join. Enterprises come to publish their own business and product information in order to obtain their own output and interests, thus helping these electronic information platform update and improve a great deal of information, but it also attract buyers to some extent. Under the environment of information flood, the platform launched Banner ads, ranking and other services, allowing enterprises to spend more money to get the extra display or possible attention.

If you see through the point, this kind of electronic information platform make our offline wholesale market electronic, which is the reason why a lot of wholesale market or Intelligence Park to open up use online electronic information platform to deepen its existing offline services. In today’s business operating mode, such a “wholesale market” mode can not reflect characteristics of the enterprises, also not conducive to the development of brand names.

Then we will naturally find that, the e-business mode which takes electronic information platform as the core part could meet part of business needs, but these platforms will only intensify competition in the same industry, even lead to price competition. Most companies can not benefit from such a platform. Frankly speaking, it is difficult to achieve win-win between enterprises and the platform providers.

Business + Electron = Electronic Business (eCommerce)

As early as three years ago, we saw the drawbacks of electronic information platform and begin to consider new e-commerce mode. Later we found a new e-business mode should be a integration mode which takes the needs of enterprises as the core part and electronic information technology as auxiliary.

Commercial operation is the core of the development of enterprises; companies need to pay more attention to how to run it well, rather than spending a lot of manpower and resources to choose from a variety of electronic channels to meet their business needs. In other words, enterprises should focus on the operation of its familiar business operation modules, and delegate or outsource the unfamiliar modules to a professional company.

Take the Chinese trading company we are familiar with as an example. Chinese trading company need to carry out foreign trade marketing, so the eCommerce should be based on marketing needs of enterprises of international trading. The purpose of international trading is to obtain foreign buyers’ attention and inquiry. To run eCommerce, Chinese exporters should take getting foreign buyers’ attention and inquiry as the core part, through a variety of e-business channels to provide marketing solutions for Chinese exporters.

As the most influential thinker in the field of eCommerce, Dr. Jeffrey F Report’s research focused on the impact of information technology for enterprise service management and marketing strategy, that is to say the needs of enterprise eCommerce issues. From this point it is not difficult to see that the second mode is the real eCommerce!

Of course, no matter what kind of eCommerce mode has its advantages, disadvantages and target groups, but according to our years of research about International trading, Chinese exporters and international eCommerce, the first mode is suitable for general consumption and the second mode is more suited for the enterprises.

And we firmly believe that electronic business is the development direction of eCommerce in the future while the application level of eCommerce would probably be a module of eCommerce.
