How to turn visitors into shoppers

In my speech at Internet Retailing, I concentrated on translating real world scenarios into the online virtual world (your shops). Generally, if we have a job to do, we’re going to look for the right tool to do it with. Take mowing the lawn for example. If I’m in the market for an English Garden, I’m not going to run it over with a BMW M5. I’m going to grab my John Deere two-cylinder and with it, I’m going to create paradise.

Internet Retailing, Birmingham 2011

The last two days at Internet Retailing were both energising and inspiring. Like a child trapped in cotton candy, or a fanatic entranced by Apple’s mystical glow, we are hungry for more. The eCommerce world is pulsating with invention, insight and a more polished professionalism than ever before. It was a pleasure to stand amidst my fellow eCommerce brethren and brethrettes, to push and redefine the possible. Yes… spring has sprung even over the otherwise rather gloomy Birmingham. It’s safe to say: Internet Retailing has successfully put Birmingham on the eCommerce map. This will be a show to follow closely in the future.

FACT-Finder hedged against the Java “floating” bug

Yesterday I was at a seminar event and during the lunch break I got a message about the Oracle patch. The day before, Oracle has fixed a weak spot that became public on 08/02/2011. The patch prevents the conversion of value 2.2250738585072012e-308 and the server gets into an infinite loop (Denial-of-Service).

eCommerce in Europe: trends and outlook. Part I

The growth of eCommerce has made it much easier for even small brands and retailers to trade outside of their domestic markets. However, while the infrastructure might be there to support this, it can still take a considerable investment in time and money to understand the intricacies of doing business in different markets. Often this leads to companies not taking advantage of these expanded markets and continuing, solely, to trade locally.

Due to operating in almost all European eCommerce markets we are in the unique position of being able to see how the different countries across Europe work within the eCommerce sector and we have compiled this information into a pan-European report, which highlights the issues and trends across the region. The following is a snap shot of our experiences.
