    How small countries are leveling up with global eCommerce - Thomas Leskowsky | eCommerce Talks #7

    How small countries are leveling up with global eCommerce - Thomas Leskowsky | eCommerce Talks #7

    With our guest, Thomas Leskowsky, we discuss modernizing and growing eCommerce in smaller, European countries which are a few years behind the global leaders. Along with our host, Marcos Bravo C., we try to understand the reasons behind the slower development of eCommerce in some ecosystems and think about ways to speed them up. 

    Thomas Leskowsky is Head of Community Management at A-Commerce, a company specializing in strategic consultancy and strengthening the eCommerce community in Austria. 

    How does the eCommerce ecosystem look in Austria? What happens on a market built from old, family brands like Swarovski? How can these companies can catch up with global leaders and react to changes like GDPR or cloud services? How do they deal with multichannel behaviors of customers? What are the challenges for young companies in Europe? How can they find their unique spot on the market? Does Austria have enough developers and eCommerce experts? How can they gain these, or any other, competencies which they may lack? 

    We present answers to these, and many more questions, in this episode of eCommerce Talks.

    Personalisation, AI and the data-driven approach in eCommerce - Matthaus Bognar | eCommerce Talks #6

    This time we met with Matthaus Bognar to talk about the growing role of personalization in building trust and engagement of buyers. Along with our host, Marcos Bravo C., we ask him about connecting different types of data and using AI-powered tools to understand users' needs and deliver them personalized communication.

    Matthaus is Head of Global Enterprise and Business Development at Nosto, one of the leading providers of personalization solutions. Based in Finland, the company moved its focus from European to global markets in the past years. Matthaus observed with fascination the diverse behaviours of users in Europe and the U.S., and matches them with different approaches of companies using personalization. 

    Is personalization a magic button that will answer the needs of your clients? How do the brands in the U.S. and Europe approach omnichannel and personalization? How do they use data and AI to adjust solutions to various user behaviors? How to start using personalization in the business without investing millions? What is the right way of working with behavioral data and transaction data? And what is the role of experiments, on-site recommendations and AB testing in creating a unique and personalized user experience?

    You will find the answers to the above questions, and tips on how to implement tools for personalization in your eCommerce, in this episode of eCommerce Talks.

    From a startup to a global leader with the headless approach - Marcus Lorenz | eCommerce Talks #5

    From a startup to a global leader with the headless approach - Marcus Lorenz | eCommerce Talks #5

    Along with Marcus Lorenz, we dive into the secrets of growing eCommerce stores from startups to fast maturing businesses with astonishing results, featuring the example of Lampenwelt. 

    Marcus Lorenz started Lampenwelt in 2014, when this rising star of eCommerce had only three people in the IT, headquarters in the owner's garage and was selling its products on eBay. Since then, Lampenwelt has achieved amazing success and makes over EUR 100 million in revenue. What were the key elements of this growth? How do they build solutions close to the customers' view? How did they approach technology and complete their teams? How did they settle and stabilize their technology? And most of all, how did they use microservices to construct their IT structure and make it ready to grow and scale globally?

    You will find all these answers in this episode of eCommerce Talks.
