How to Sell More to Your International Customers

Good entrepreneurs know there are always ways to grow their businesses … but great entrepreneurs understand the key to success is finding expansion opportunities where risk is low, and gains are high.

For Volusion-powered online stores owners, that opportunity exists now, in an unlikely place: language. Imagine a version of your Volusion ecommerce store, presented in several languages, serving global & domestic markets, and appearing in relevant regional and international search engines.

Take the greatest U.S.-based opportunity, the U.S. Hispanic market. There are more than 53 million Hispanics currently living in the U.S., just over 17% of the country’s population. (It’s growing, too, on track to hit nearly 30% of the U.S. population by 2050.) These shoppers are already hip to your way of selling. U.S. Hispanic consumers are web-savvy: 80% currently use social media, much greater than non-Hispanics (70%). Four years ago, the buying power of U.S. Hispanic consumers was an astounding $1 trillion. Next year, it’ll hit $1.5 trillion.
