But how to introduce and position in other markets effectively? An easy way to test marketing in other countries is ShopAlike, an aggregator already established in India.

The company Visual Meta which was born in 2009 in Germany, having more than 360 e-commerce and 1,000 brands and works like a giant showcase for all of them.
Associated shops ensure a good position in the markets where ShopAlike operates and has a strong presence, which allows any Indian e-commerce stores compete with the target market without a huge investment or a great knowledge and study of the country. The only requirement is that e-commerce is prepared for the international sale and expects a product catalog in the appropriate language (except for those countries for working with English as a rule, including the Netherlands and the Nordic countries).
