“Hordes of Canadians are shopping online, so why are our businesses failing to keep up?” The response to this article across the internet and notably in Canada was phenomenal, sparking discussion far and wide.Last week, VL was featured in a National Post article,
We at VL found it incredible that many Canadians were unaware that we were spending so much of our money abroad, and that Canadian businesses were failing at even participating at basic levels in the online economy. So we followed up the National Post article with an infographic, “Canadian Ecommerce 2015: What is the true state of Canadian Ecommerce?” This blog post analyzed side-by-side what the commonly circulated Canadian digital ecommerce statistics were, tempered with the contrasting reality of how Canadian businesses are consistently falling short online.
There is clearly a demand for more information on this topic, and VL is happy to provide it!
