Publisher's Summary

From innovative e-commerce expert and former Alibaba vice president Porter Erisman comes an insightful, practical audiobook guide to e-commerce in emerging markets - and how to profit from their explosive boom.
From China to India to Nigeria, e-commerce is entering a golden era in countries that were long left out of the e-commerce gold rush experienced in the West. If the story of the first 20 years of e-commerce's growth was set in developed markets, the story of the next 20 years will be set in emerging ones. The rise of e-commerce in emerging markets is being driven by three major trends: widespread Internet adoption, a rising middle class, and, most importantly, innovative new business models that serve the needs of local customers better than the models used by Western e-commerce giants.
Six Billion Shoppers takes listeners on an exciting and colorful journey around the world to visit the next e-commerce mega markets and explore how a new e-commerce boom is opening opportunities for entrepreneurs and global brands alike. Traveling through Nigeria, China, India, Southeast Asia, and Latin America, Porter Erisman addresses e-commerce across these new markets and what it means for Western brands. He argues that e-commerce in developing countries is revolutionary and will play a much larger role in emerging markets than in the West. With e-commerce in emerging markets entering a rapid period of expansion, Six Billion Shoppers explains how to seize the massive opportunity created by emerging market consumers and provides practical advice on how listeners can ride this new business trend.
