Expert Jim Tompkins Releases Video, Predicts Surging Growth of Alibaba

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) June 26, 2014

As Alibaba continues its reign as the fastest growing e-commerce company in the most rapidly growing market in the world, the Chinese e-marketplace is on track to be the #1 retail leader in the world by 2016.

In his new video The Alibaba Effect, Jim Tompkins, CEO of Tompkins International, shares in-depth insight into how Alibaba will affect every U.S. business, and what they can do about it. Just last year, Alibaba made astounding margins, earning 43 cents to every dollar earned.

E-commerce in the U.S. is about to be turned on its head, Tompkins explains. Once Alibaba enters the game here, we can expect them to work aggressively to exceed consumer expectations. They will also dramatically change the supply chains in the U.S.

Alibaba is slated to launch its IPO in New York City later this year, and also has just released its U.S. marketplace dubbed 11 Main.

The Alibaba Effect video focuses on answering five key questions:

1. What Alibaba does
2. What the big deal is
3. Who leads Alibaba
4. Recent updates on Alibaba and where it is headed
5. How businesses can prepare for the "invasion" of Alibaba

Tompkins warns companies to not act on the defense, but rather develop a strong counter-offensive focusing on key areas he explains in the video.

By the end of 2014, I can confidently predict that every business in the U.S. will be thinking and talking about Alibaba, Tompkins says. The time to create your game plan is now.
