Sharing Ecommerce Knowledge

Richard van welie contact
In the beginning of 2016 we launched the EcommerceWiki, the online e-commerce handbook for retailers. Goal is to help the 25.000 members of Ecommerce Europe to more effectively learn how to improve their e-commerce activities. In addition to Ecommerce Europe, the wiki is also supported by Ecommerce Associations around the world like Australia, Brazil, Canada, China (Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai), Egypt, etc.

About the EcommerceWiki

Since May 2016 we have launched the EcommerceWiki, a platform where people can share their ecommerce knowledge. With the EcommerceWiki we hope to offer the ecommerce community a place for collecting and sharing all knowledge about ecommerce-related topics: from branding and performance advertising, to merchandising, selecting an ecommerce platform and managing social media.

Our ambition is for the EcommerceWiki to become the global e-commerce handbook. Currently there are many websites and blogs covering ecommerce news and insights. However, detailed 'how to' information is difficult to find, not very well organized and not always reliable.   We have identified more than 40 topics (from Affiliate Marketing to Warehousing). Each topic consists of three modules:
  • Basics:             Students and beginners (focussing on "What is...").
  • Advanced:       Managers and entrepreneurs (focussing on "How to").
  • Expert:             Experts, professionals: the advanced stuff.

The EcommerceWiki collects ecommerce content in one convenient location, well-aranged in multiple topics. We invite experts from all corners of the world to contribute. We strive to gather basic, advanced and expert information so that the EcommerceWiki becomes the main place for everybody who would like to expand their knowledge, from students and online retailers (SME) to corporate digital experts.
Joining the EcommerceWiki
Our ambition is to make the EcommerceWiki the international ecommerce handbook, which can help people with learning all about ecommerce, developing their skills and improving their business. The EcommerceWiki will be the “one-stop shop” for everything there is to know about ecommerce.

By sharing your knowledge with the community, you will help others to improve on ecommerce. In return, you will be able to improve your own knowledge through the contributions of other experts, contact these other experts and have the chance to position yourself to a large audience as an international expert in your field of expertise.
