Although the Coronavirus outbreak restricted the ability to go to brick and mortar stores for everyone, the natural consumerist appetite had to be satiated one way or another. All businesses gradually shifted operations to the cloud, partially or completely, to sustain in the unstable economy. Hence the traditional brick-and-mortar exchange behavior started evolving towards digital solutions, even more so than in the last decade. E-Retail companies and their subsequent functions are prepped to face modern-day customer challenges, provided they have virtual access capabilities.
A massive change in consumer purchasing habits was observed along with web traffic spikes during the global pandemic lockdown. U.S Retail sales went up 30.1% as compared to 2019, in the first six months of 2020, according to digitalcommerce360.com.
The concept of merchandising, discount sales, and seasonal offers has promoted an online purchasing frenzy, particularly among the tech-savvy youth. Mobile shopping, ease of purchase, and global shipment capability have transformed the way people procure goods today.
CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE IN E-COMMERCE
With the growth of the industry itself, competitive advantages erode over the internet, unless you have an ace up your sleeve. For creating a greater focus on conversion margins, sales, and productivity, E-businesses will require a new approach.
Customer Experience (CX) is the key differentiator today that determines and influences the success rate of your operations. Online purchase outlets serve in parallel to the traditional physical E-Retailers, so consumers expect the same level of personalized service as experienced face-to-face.
Exceptional Customer Service defines a trademark enterprise, which in turn, provides a high-value Customer Retention Cycle. Centric to any enterprise’s success, consumer engagement, and the buyer’s journey will help decide the future outlook of your corporation. To stand out from the crowd, present-day businesses need scalability options, as well as the ability to withstand high traffic volumes.
