Is your e-commerce product a show stopper? Can it attract people and sell itself? Does it stand out from other products in the market?
It can be easy to fall into the trap of thinking exclusively from a business perspective. But, there’s a difference between a product that does well and a product that soars: creativity.
In this episode of the Relationship Commerce Podcast, Dean Dutro is joined by Paul Barmes from Barmes Design and Andrew Skirde, VP of Marketing Operations, to talk about becoming an inventive and creative e-commerce leader. They also discuss the benefits of creating a show stopper product, how to work with influencers, and strategies for managing an e-commerce business during a pandemic.
