Industry Survey Ecommerce Trends in Wholesale and DistributionIf you’ve ever found yourself wondering what other distributors are doing with ecommerce to grow their respective businesses, you aren’t alone. B2B ecommerce is notably a private affair, with much of the “meaty” information secured behind a password-protected user portal.

Wholesalers and distributors are especially effective in harnessing ecommerce and to get a clearer picture of how they are leveraging their ecommerce sites, I’ve launched a brief electronic survey for all wholesalers and distributors.

The entire survey should take no more than 5 minutes to complete and everyone who participates will get a copy of the research results at the close of the survey. We are also giving away an iPad 2 to one lucky respondant as a token of our thanks.

Be assured that your individual answers will remain completely confidential. The survey does not ask if participants are currently evaluating a new ecommerce platform and you will not be called as a result of participation.

I hope that as a wholesaler or distributor you will take five minutes and complete this brief survey. I think you will find the results informative as you begin to create your ecommerce strategy for 2012. The survey closes October 7th.

(Manufacturers, watch for a survey about ecommerce in your industry in the near future!)
