Even the techiest of coders amongst us doesn’t know all of the answers, as companies keep the secrets to their success to themselves. (And let’s be honest, even if we did publish our complicated algorithms, it would bore 99% of you).
But we do have some secrets that we can share. Such as how one of our top clients made an extra £946,883 in revenue in one single month!
After developing over 600 eCommerce sites, we’re ready to share some insider tips and tricks on how to optimise your site for success.
As part of our new weekly blog series, we ‘spill the secrets’ to easily boosting your revenue and doubling engagement without any tech training or expensive developers.

Our mission at Recommend is to empower retailers big and small to increase sales through seamless, affordable personalization. This is why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of Magento 2, which brings with it the new era of eCommerce innovation.

Basket abandonment rates have plagued online retailers since the dawn of eCommerce, with recent studies showing a huge 74% average cart abandonment rate worldwide. The great news is that the same report shows that this percentage is dropping every year, especially in mature markets such as Europe and North America where usability and technology is improving.
The even better news is that this is a huge opportunity for retailers such as you to reclaim lost sales. This audience visited your site for a reason and they took the time to pick the products that interested them providing you with a wealth of personalized information at your fingertips to win them back.
Personalized emails are the No. 1 way to transform this information into revenue.
What an interesting time to be in eCommerce! Just weeks before the Brexit vote shook up Europe, eCommerce Europe published a report predicting that eCommerce is set to grow 12% this year with online sales set to generate a huge €509 billion.

Only time will tell, and we will keep you updated on the changing market as it happens right here on the Recommend blog and social.
