Ecommerce success factors

Successful Ecommerce sites are no different from other online businesses since they have a well defined digital marketing strategy and online brand-strategy.

But retailers also have specific techniques to manage which we cover in this section including merchandising, payment and security and sales optimisation.

Other digital marketing tactics like Paid search, SEO, Social media, Email marketing and conversion rate optimisation all require different approaches for Ecommerce sites.

Ecommerce definition

Put simply Ecommerce is online buying. Our coverage of Ecommerce includes all transactional ecommerce:

  • Retail (of course)
  • Financial services (applications and "straight through processing")
  • Travel (holidays and flights)

There is a broader view of Ecommerce which includes non-financial transactions also like B2B lead-generation and email marketing which we cover in other parts of the site.
