Everything you need to know about autofill

Somewhere in the not too distant past, there would have been a business owner or two who scoffed at the notion of creating a website. ‘What’s the point?’ you can just imagine them saying. ‘We’re doing just fine without it, so why should we change?’

Fast forward to 2017, and experts claim that you are either a digital business, or a dead business.

The Big Mobile Shopping Problem That Technology Solves

The Big Mobile Shopping Problem That Technology Solves

Mobile is increasingly the first screen for digital commerce. Forty percent of e-retail traffic now comes from mobile phones -- and this number is only going to grow.

But there’s one big problem. As mobile shopping rates increase, conversion rates continue to fall as customers abandon their shopping carts during the checkout process. The culprit is a friction-filled, time-consuming, highly manual checkout process which is only more frustrating on a mobile device.

4 Ways to Reduce Cart Abandonment

As our smartphones become more and more ingrained in our everyday lives, it’s only a matter of time before our phones also become our primary tool for buying. Just a few years ago, mobile e-commerce, or m-commerce, accounted for 11.6% of total e-commerce revenue in the U.S. That number is forecasted to climb to 45% by 2020.

Are Coupons the Future of Mobile Commerce?

Are Coupons the Future of Mobile Commerce?

When Coca-Cola issued what is considered the first-ever coupon in 1887, little did they realise the phenomenal impact the concept would have on the marketing world, particularly demand generation marketing. Armed with a voucher, recipients could redeem a free glass of Coke at any dispensary. The strategy was a remarkable success...

Shopping aggregators – where have they come from, and where are they going?

Shopping aggregators – where have they come from, and where are they going?

Comparison shopping engines, otherwise known as shopping aggregators, are considered by some as the darlings of the internet era, and for good reason. With the profits of some aggregators, such as hotels.com and booking.com, exceeding $6 billion annually, it’s fair to say that this industry is one to watch.

Shopping cart abandonment – who is really to blame?

It’s been described as the bane of the online retail industry, and for good reason: shopping cart abandonment costs retailers over $USD4 trillion per year.  And to make matters worse, it doesn’t have to be this way – 63% of this could be recovered, experts say, if only merchants were a little more savvy.

Social buy buttons are invading the internet – but are they working?

Social buy buttons are invading the internet – but are they working?

Social media is already a premiere destination for many of our daily needs - whether it be to socialise, read, or job search. So it makes sense that it will soon be a premiere retail destination as well.

And that’s exactly what all of the big platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest are hoping to do with the recent introduction of ‘Buy buttons.’ Heralded as ‘the next big thing’ in ecommerce, buy buttons enable users to purchase items en masse, without having to ever leave the comfort of the app they’re using.

But are the buy buttons (also known as click-to-buy), really as great an idea as they seem?

Why we changed

Why we changed

My best mate and business partner Chad and I sold our previous startup, 1Form, to Australia’s largest real estate group in 2013 and we immediately set out to build our next vision. Whilst our first venture (1Form) was a huge success it certainly didn’t start that way… sleepless nights and not knowing how you would put food on the table was par for the course for many years. But after pounding the pavement enough, it started to grow and grow fast.  It got to the point where we no longer had to knock on doors; rather our door would be the one getting knocked on.
