Avalara Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions
While Avalara started by selling primarily to mid-market and small businesses, growth opportunity and customer need had expanded their reach into enterprise and emerging small businesses. To grow in these areas and expand beyond the mid-market, Avalara is investing in specialized go-to-market strategies for sales and marketing unique to each of the segments. In addition to reaching highly targeted enterprise and mid-market prospects, Avalara's marketing investments and activities generate interest from large numbers of emerging and small businesses that also are burdened by transaction tax compliance requirements. Avalara's is on the right path expanding its footprint into small businesses, this is vital because it establishes customer relationships that may become more valuable to the company over time as these customers grow, and also provides a potential barrier to entry from competitors that may seek to build market share by targeting the small business segment.
