How To Bounce Back from This Downturn (And Convert More Of Your Current Website Traffic)

JonMacdonald_Graphic-01A couple weeks ago, our friends at The Good, a conversion rate optimization firm, released this report about the state of ecommerce right now. 

They saw a nearly 50/50 split between brands whose sales have been impacted positively and those that have been affected negatively by the current situation.

But even though more than half of respondents are expecting to grow, just over 60% are planning to reduce marketing spend.

Which can actually have an adverse effect on growth. So we wanted to dig into the findings a little further with The Good’s Founder, Jon MacDonald.

He explains why it’s more important than ever for brands to have an incredible user experience and what to focus on to make it happen.
