Ecommerce Checklist 2018 (Infographic)Last Updated: September 19, 2018
eCommerce is steadily growing into a trillion-dollar industry, and as the decade marches on, the sector shows no signs of slowing down or tailing off. Getting an eCommerce checklist or other strategy for optimising your eCommerce process has become absolutely crucial.
“The sooner we drop the ‘e’ out of ‘e-commerce’ and just call it ‘commerce’, the better.”
The CEOs of Bigcommerce, Eddie Machaalani & Mitchell Harper, predict that by 2020, brick and mortar retail spaces will be “little more than showrooms”, while Bob Willett, former President of Best Buy International and CIO of Best Buy famously remarked: “The sooner we drop the ‘e’ out of ‘e-commerce’ and just call it ‘commerce’, the better.”
People are attracted to shopping online in the first place because they imagine it is easier and more convenient than the traditional brick & mortar alternative. Therefore, if shopping online is not an easy experience for your customers, they are likely to simply abandon the cart before even providing their details.
Getting the conversions can be a tricky business. Peep Laja is the founder of one of the world’s most popular conversion optimization blogs, ConversionXL, and his specialty is in making website sell better. In his book, Master The Essentials of Conversion Optimization: Experts’ Approach to Optimization, Laja succinctly and colourfully sums up the dilemma for businesses: “Remember – every ‘mistake’ a user makes is not because they’re stupid, but because your website sucks.”
