If you’ve had a conversation with one of our team members for longer than 30 seconds, we’ve probably told you how important we think ecommerce is to the success of any event. Our roots are in ecommerce for large companies and we’ve proved our theory to be true, so it’s no surprise we are so sure that it will help increase revenue for your event.
Even though we are spreading the ecommerce message far and wide, we still find events that are skeptical, so we’ve decided to try a new approach. They say “A picture is worth 1,000 words,” and in this case I couldn’t agree more! This infographic tells you just about every reason we have (and a few more) as to why your event MUST have ecommerce.
So let’s recap:
- 50% of the online population has made more than one purchase online.
- Over the course of 2012, 184 million people will shop online.
- By 2015 US consumers will spend $270 billion online!
Folks, if these stats don’t convince you that it is time to make ecommerce a priority, I don’t know what will!
