The ecommerce industry is the only one with a two digit growth year over a year and it’s estimated it will reach $4 billion in sales by 2020. (source)
With such growth, comes increased competition. So there is a growing need for talented and passionate marketers that can bridge the gap between what the consumers want and the products sold online.
In spite of all the advances in software technology, social media and the abundance of free information all around the web, it’s not easy to be a successful marketer for an online business.
Here are a few stats to look at to gain some perspective on the difficulties that eCommerce businesses face all over the world.
#According to the Baymard Institute, the average cart abandonment rate is 67.91% but depending on the vertical, it can vary between 60% and 80%. (source)
#72% of females and 59% of males have decided to abandon their purchase because of shipping costs. (source)
#21% of Americans state that unattractive or hard-to-navigate websites are frustrating when buying online. (source)
And these are just the tiny tip of the iceberg. With more and more sophisticated and demanding consumers, eCommerce businesses need to meet and exceed their visitors and clients expectations every single day, if they want to have a piece of the multi-billion dollars eCommerce pie.
