Find the “Sweet Spot” with your e-Commerce Sales to Canada

In baseball, when a ball is hit just right, you’ve found the “sweet spot” of the bat. Bats in general react to impacts and transmit vibration; when the ball is struck, it vibrates in response.

Impact vibrations travel in waves up and down the length of the bat. At a point called “the node,” the waves cancel each other out. Hitting the ball on the bat’s node will cause the vibrations from the impact to cancel out without any stinging or shaking in your hand. Since little of the bat’s energy under impact is lost to vibrations when this spot is hit; more power from the collision goes to the ball with the result being a distance increase; a simple, but complicated and beautiful physics equation demonstrated in real life.

Part of the role of “batting coaches” in Major League Baseball is to constantly work with their prodigies and superstars to optimize the likelihood of finding the node consistently. This is easier said than done with the variables and dynamics involved between the pitcher, catcher and batter, not to mention the pressure, roar and buzz with every “at bat.”

Similarly if you are an e-commerce on-line seller of goods to Canada, your goods cross an international border. As a result, planning is necessary to find the “sweet spot” for these northbound transactions with the aim of hitting it out of the park for your customers!
