When was the last time you reviewed your ecommerce strategy? Do you have an ecommerce strategy in writing to review? If your answer was no to one or both questions, you’re not alone. Many ecommerce merchants admit to not having a fully fleshed out ecommerce strategy. Without a plan of attack in place, a business is left reacting to business or technology challenges around their ecommerce operation instead of having a solid plan in place to scale and grow business.
