Development & Marketing

Technological facilities and capabilities, which have surely multiplied and evolved in recent times, provide a sound and necessary basis for business development and expansion, but they are not enough, as the way of "engaging" customers with eShops has changed considerably. The role of social media and all kinds of influencers - however controversial - does not cease to play an important aspect in shaping preferences that sooner or later lead to sales, revenue and profits. Marketing can change, however, it is always necessary.
