When was the last time you reviewed and optimized your e-commerce site? If it’s been more than a year or two, it’s probably time to check in and tune up your site. All the work that you do to bring traffic to your site is wasted if people find its appearance dated or don’t have a good experience. You want people to glide effortlessly through your sales funnel, not meander or get lost in loops that don’t lead them where you want them to go.
Your brand has probably evolved since you built your site, and you want to embed your current branding deep in every corner of your website — including the product pages and shopping cart. But even if your brand hasn’t evolved much since you last optimized your site, the internet probably has. Your customers are comparing their experience on your site to their experience on e-commerce giants such as Amazon and Wayfair, and they have high expectations that can’t be met by technology from three years ago.
