5 Ways to Make Your e-Commerce Site Customer Experience Focused

More and more people are purchasing good and services online. A recent Forrester Research study was released showing a 5-year U.S. Online Retail Market Forecast -- the numbers are astounding.

Customer Experience: Dig Deeper on the Wants and Needs of Your Customers and Consumers

In reading Customer Experience: Help People Do Things, Don't Keep Them on Webpages by Gerry McGovern, I was reminded how the overall UX community is singularly focused on this well reasoned, but incomplete idea. While the article, and much of the associated UX literature that pervades the content ecosphere, is applicable in task-oriented domains, it lacks broader applicability because it treats the web as one big shopping cart and ignores two big factors.
