Global ecommerce sales are growing at double-digit rates, but competition for customers is fierce!
In order to stay competitive, online retailers are increasingly relying on media-rich, interactive features to drive user engagement and increase revenue.
But unless steps are taken to ensure that site performance keeps pace with these innovations, buyers won’t stick around.
For businesses, this can mean lost revenue and damage to the brand. In fact, poor website performance can have a compound negative effect, with Forrester Research estimating that 44% of online shoppers will tell their friends about a bad online experience. Clearly, word gets around fast!
Now for the good news! Solutions providers like CDNetworks can speed up your ecommerce website, cutting page load times and ecommerce transaction times by more than half.
