We’re all looking for better production from our e-commerce channels this holiday season, right? Well, thinks is on the scene. Here are a few quick tips to help you make the most of your traffic this year:
- Smashing Magazine is up first, offering 15 common e-commerce design mistakes – and how to avoid them. They’re right on the money with their first item, “a lack of detailed product information.” If your customers don’t have enough information to make a purchase decision, you can’t really expect them to make a purchase now, can you?
- Not sure what product information to offer? Fortunately, Econsultancy offers 37 things you should have on a product page. Good stuff.
- As you’re working on the right layout to show all this additional product information, don’t forget to A/B test your designs. Of course, while you’re at it, you also want to avoid Search Engine Land’s 6 deadly mistakes of web page testing and tuning.
- And for all we talk about testing our designs, Seth Godin suggest we might be better off testing who we should have as customers.
