The B2B eCommerce Manifesto—by SwiftOtter

Evolve your B2B eCommerce

SwiftOtter places our decades of experience into a free, downloadable format.

A vision for growing your B2B eCommerce website.

The story

We've had plenty of conversations with B2B merchants frustrated with their website's current state. Their platform feels outdated, they can't update content on their website, the integrations are broken, etc. They know that once these issues are fixed, there is still a missing element of taking their website to the next level—what's next?

SwiftOtter's two B2B experts, Joseph Maxwell, and Jon Guess, have over a decade of combined experience guiding B2B merchants to success. From their perspective, arriving at the destination isn't as daunting as determining it. This book represents a methodical guide for this vision.
