In 2019 online conversion is arguably the greatest of all challenges for brands selling direct to consumers. Maximising every investment in generating demand from new and existing customers is critical - not only due to the explosion in marketing channels, but also because of the changes in device types and payment regulations coming in 2020.
Our morning conference will take some of the key issues and dissect them - as always with speakers who are at the top of their game and who are willing to share their experiences.
Topics we will cover include:
Optimising conversion by channel - How do you prioritise your time and investment?
Payment - which choices do you make to improve customer experience by channel and by territory?
Good v Bad conversion - Can you spot the signs of a return before despatch?
Mobile and Social - How do you truly optimise these co-existing platforms
