5 Ways to Accelerate Your Online Business Using Site Search, Navigation and Merchandising
More than 96% of visitors to eCommerce sites don't buy. Put simply, they can't ﬁnd what they want.
Your customers are telling you what they want when searching on a website -- the direct understanding of this customer purchase intent enables online retailers to drive more traffic, deliver compelling merchandising messages and most importantly provide relevant products and information to visitors -- all resulting in customers finding what they're looking for on a website more efficiently.
This session will highlight real examples from brands including Oasis, Chemist Direct, Thompson and Morgan and Boden.
