New worlds - new internet usage
Pew Global’s survey on mobile technology has some interesting reveals for the site owners in the western world. The general trend is that more and more people have started to use internet (especially on smartphones) in developing countries. While this survey by US Funds show that China has the largest number of internet users (485 million) in any of these countries- and that is only a third of the country’s overall population! Among the highest ranking nations of internet users in Developing countries include India (with 100million users, which is ten percent of the overall population) and Brazil (with over 75million users, a third of its overall population). What does this mean for your site?
A lot of potential for e-commerce is what it means. Through E-commerce, almost $8 trillion exchange hands each year, according to research by McKinsey Global Institute. With e-commerce leading the way in economic growth, these emerging markets in countries like China, India and Brazil produce a relatively untapped market.
Go international - don't be shy
Anyone with google analytics tech (or even WordPress blogging site) will know that your site is visited by people from all over the world. While a membership site may not have thought of their primary consumers being international, today most sites have e-commerce options, and that can be utilised by anyone, anywhere. Growing visitors from around the globe may even be an indicator for your site’s potential to reach out to a global market. So how do you respond?
