However, as is often the case in economic downturns, it’s not all bad news.
The Harvard economist Dani Rodrik has written that a country’s economic development is virtually synonymous with its ability to produce manufactured goods for export.

India’s GDP has just dropped by a whopping 24% in the last quarter, one of the biggest drops globally. The core reason for this significant decline was that India had one of the strictest COVID 19 economic lockdowns in the world.

We are seeing a massive migration to the internet for our business needs. This has been one of the largest business migrations the world has ever seen, but many small manufacturing companies have not even updated their websites in years, not to mention expanded and leveraged a more efficient online capability.
Is it now time for small manufacturing to enter the world markets?
The internet and business landscape are changing at rates not seen before. With this incredible change occurring right in front of us, why hasn’t the online wholesale industry adapted and become more efficient? Instead, there seems to be very little change and increased efficiency over many years.
For example: We believe each wholesale company today should have their own global storefront.
Is the global free markets wholesale business the most inefficient market in the world?
With the exposition of the internet and online retail business, has the wholesale market kept up with its peers?
Not only has the wholesale market not kept up, but the industry’s failure to keep pace with Amazon is a key reason why Amazon has been so successful and the wholesale industry has done very poorly.

As a wholesaler, you can increase sales and global awareness if you know how to find the right platform.

- Sell directly to customers via your website.

In our small business we are involved with all three, but I would like to introduce you to wholesaling online, a newer global concept.

Buying wholesale online products and selling them at retail prices can be the foundation of a solid and vibrant business. The concept is very simple: find an outstanding product, one that hopefully is unique to your business, purchased at a low price. Then sell it at a higher price, and repeat.

The problem with today’s internet is that the world’s wholesalers and distributors are still using their 1900’s model; there has been little if any significant change, even though we have seen incredibly robust change in the world that has created a new retail online category.

They have seen strong growth popping up all over the world.
One of the first ideas to consider before you open an online wholesale website is to better understand how the wholesale supplier system works, and better yet a system that can work for your online store.
The issue with online store shoppers:
Most wholesale systems are spotty at best; it’s an eclectic collection of very random unhelpful “register first” websites. Many are in the US but most are sprinkled everywhere in the world. Most of these sites are OK, many are great, but quite a few just waste your time with a long registration process and fees.
Businesses to business, or B2B companies, do require an all-around thought out and innovative marketing strategy. When you first consider B2B marketing systems, your brain may go directly to the immediate and outbound procedure. You might think about sending messages directly to forthcoming customers (your generated lead). It might work out that way sometimes; however, it’s not generally the ideal approach to get new customers. Hire services from a reliable digital marketing company.
