Ecommerce optimization can seem like Alice's hallway: the more you try to get there, the more the goal eludes you. But putting customers first -- going beyond best practices and using empathy to optimize user experience -- can narrow the gap, resulting in few cart abandons, higher conversion rates, and even customer loyalty in a marketplace fraught with discount shoppers. Using real-world examples and data-driven insights, this session will address the seeming contradiction of achieving greater profits and higher conversion rates while delighting customers and creating a brand worth talking about.
