Increased online spend, growth & revenue: 2013 is the year of e-commerce
Looking for the world’s largest shopping mall? It’s closer than you think! The web has quickly become the go-to place for retail, and according to stats provided by Bigcommerce, this trend is not showing any signs of slowing down.
In their recent blog post “State of the E-Conomy: e-commerce sales up 162% in the last year,” Bigcommerce provides some pretty astounding stats on the increase of new e-commerce stores, revenue growth and online consumer spending. What we found most interesting is the huge gains seen in mobile commerce, which is trending to double year-over-year growth.
That said, it has never been a better time to look at your mobile shopping strategy. Is it easy for people to purchase products from your store using an iPad, iPhone or Android device? Have you considered using responsive web design to provide your customers with an optimized viewing experience, regardless of which electronic device they are using?
