And let's just review this year. 2020 has been one wild ride earliest. You had the coronavirus hit. The world has changed. E-Commerce forever. We've seen back orders and shipping delays. You've seen issues in e-commerce that have happened at a scale, never imagined before, but we have all seen an influx of new buyers, trying comments for the first time. People in quarantine have had no choice, but to shop online, they've tried e-commerce and these are folks who've never tried it before. And now all of a sudden their buyers, their uses of e-commerce.
And I believe that they're here to stay retailers I've talked to have said 2020 has been the best shower for them. And I think this is going to the trend is going to continue. So we can go and talk about all the downsides of 2020, but also there's been some huge upsides and we should definitely acknowledge effort and know that this might be the new normal, and we might be living in a world that's more connected than ever. And we start to understand how a delay in shipping can really affect the delay, getting a product into the hands. I want to look back at some of the episodes, some of the interviews I've done the share and highlight some of the really cool folks that I've talked with. There's a lot of interesting things that have come up. So let's do a little clip episode and I hope everyone has a great new year's and look forward talking to everyone in 2021. So let's get onto a few clips. A few highlights from this year is episodes.
Speaker 2 (02:12):
Well, the first thing that I just want to kind of start with is the difference between e-commerce and M commerce. For those of you that are listening, that may not really have a definitive knowledge, but e-commerce is commerce conducted via the internet and commerce is business done on a mobile device.
Speaker 3 (02:30):
I recommend you go all in. So if you don't have money for the course, but you want to launch a product and you, you are short in cash because I had some savings. If you don't have it, don't buy a course, go to YouTube, check out. You can find all this information on YouTube. I'm the kind of person that needs guidance, especially in a start. So just like Instagram marketing, Facebook marketing, any other kinds of marketing, it's, it's a different beast. But has most similar benefits and this year has been as you know, unusual
To say the least. Yeah, for me, if anything is just evolving.
Speaker 4 (03:07):
Well, the important thing is that the email is that especially the past 12 months with also what's been happening in the world, the way the email has been used with other channels has become a lot more important. So the likes of SMS, the likes of messenger using things like quizzes to pull any email addresses.
So what you do is your photos or 3d renders for your listing need to be showing the value of the product, not just, Oh, mine's a great photo, but the differentiation you did with the product.
Speaker 5 (03:39):
