Are you a retailer kept up by cart abandonment nightmares?
We’ve all done it. Clicked through pages and pages of merchandise, added various items to the cart and simply never made it to checkout.
It’s like we turned our backs and never looked back. Metaphorically, of course. But as a retailer, that’s the last thing you want.
Combat cart abandonment and increase conversion rates with the following tips and tricks.
Ugg is launching a multimedia campaign, promoting its footwear as part of an idealised lifestyle.
Check out the video embedded below to get an idea of the brand position (the ad feels like a sort of gooey Guinness advert crossed with a Lands End catalogue).
With this new campaign afoot (no pun intended), I thought I’d take a look around the brand’s web presence and see how it stacks up.
The conclusion is that there's a lot to improve upon in Ugg's digital strategy. Part of maintaining a premium lifestyle brand is doing digital well. Having said that, no doubt the new campaign, with its well produced videos, will revitalise the brand if given enough media exposure.

Monsoon has launched Swoon, a shoppable monthly magazine for tablets (but also working well on desktop). It's full of products and rich content and was built by Rockabox Studios on the Ceros design platform.
With the prices of Monsoon apparel comparable with Cos – middle to upper high street pricing - and the more artisan pieces pricier still, at more than £300, this feels like a good move.
The image of Monsoon has perhaps slipped in recent years and lost some of its chic or urbanity. I can see this campaign of shoppable magazines as a step towards bringing this firmly back to the brand, which needs to highlight the quality of its clothing, including its hand-embellished pieces.
The launch of a shoppable magazine is in line with many other brands seeking to bring more editorial and clustering to their offerings. Net-A-Porter has launched a mag, M&S has mixed up its website with plenty of content and trailblazers ASOS and TopShop have been doing this for a while.
Let’s take a more detailed look at Swoon.
Picking which online supermarket you prefer to park your trolley in can be based on little more than which supermarket you regularly visit in the real world.
It’s the one you’re used to, the one you’ve got a loyalty card with, it’s also probably the one that’s closest to your home.
We sometimes forget that we needn’t be beholden to such boundaries when we’re shopping online for groceries. We have the whole of the nation’s biggest food retailers to choose from and each has their own particular conveniences.
You’re decision on which ecommerce store to shop with may purely come down to which offers the cheapest products, reasonable delivery charges and the availability of a convenient delivery window.
However if all these things are moot, it may also come down to which offers the best user experience.
This post is not meant to definitively suggest which supermarket out of Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose or Morrisons is the best, it’s just meant to highlight various UX features and tools that make for a great customer experience, features that other ecommerce site designers could learn from.
From an interactive value proposition to brilliant product descriptions, there's much to love at Made.com.
I was taking a look around the site and kept stumbling on things that I consider to be best practice in ecommerce from this pureplay 'direct to designer' store.
Take a look at what I found and see if you feel the same way.

On August 6 2014, Google announced that it is starting to use HTTPS as a ranking signal within the search results.
While on the face of it, this might not seem like big news, it's another instance of Google using its influence to put pressure on websites to conform to what it considers best practice.
Google has said that right now HTTPS is a very lightweight signal which will affect less than 1% of search queries globally, but it has stated that this may change over time as Google encourages all site owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS.
As a result of this, we anticipate that secure and encrypted connections will become the norm for all websites in the future.
Hubba is about keeping all that product information in one place, where everyone can access it and where the data is fit for use in marketing and commerce.
I asked the team about their future. Here's what they had to say...
Back in April I was kindly invited by the team at 4Ps Marketing to attend its Ski Summit in Tignes, France.
Aside from the skiing (and inevitable après-ski), I got chatting to some of its clients about their digital marketing and ecommerce efforts.
One of these clients was Alex Econs, founder and director of ICON Printing; an SMB producing customised clothing and accessories for an impressive client list.
According to the new Ecommerce Platform Buyer’s Guide 2014, online retailers are thriving.
Retail is transforming itself from a local industry into one which is fundamentally about competing globally in international markets.
The IMRG Capgemini e-Retail Sales Index saw the 2013 UK online retail market grow 16% to £91bn, with ecommerce accounting for 21% of the country's entire retail market.
Sometimes you don’t even need an excuse to spend an entire afternoon losing yourself while looking through hundreds of beautiful looking websites and admiring their handiwork.
Luckily we do have a reason… research! That old ‘get out of jail free card’.
Last year I took a look at some excellent examples of persuasive ecommerce design and I thought now would be a great time to add to the list. The sun is shining after all.
Using the five techniques laid out by Peep Laja in his persuasive design techniques manifesto I’ll be taking a look at various ecommerce sites that either tick one, or even all of the following persuasive design boxes:
Engagement or revenue? Conversion or visits?
The report provides insight and recommendations for how content can be combined with ecommerce as well as examples of what ecommerce practitioners are currently doing and the role they are setting for content marketing within the overall digital strategy.
Interviews were conducted with leading ecommerce professionals in B2B and B2C organisations, both UK and international. The aim of the interviews was to explore how leading brands are integrating content into ecommerce journeys and what the future strategy of the business looks like, with the output being qualitative data and indicative charts based on the responses of interviewees.
10 key questions were asked, including “who has ownership of your content?” “What tools do you use to help plan and deliver?” and “Do you produce content guidelines?”
These questions and more are answered in the report, but for now we’ll be looking at content marketing KPIs.
