I was invited to speak at a seminar for ecommerce site owners which focused on the customer being an asset. I gave two talks, one about ecommerce and website speed, with a Yottaa focus and the other about how to leverage social media to accelerate ecommerce revenue.
My social media talk focused on a survey of ecommerce websites and their use of Social Media tools to drive referrals and engagement with buyers. Using Amazon as a benchmark the talk reviewed several websites in Denmark. The presentation also left attendees with a strategy and process for moving forward with social media by listening, engaging and inspiring their ecommerce website visitors.
Based on feedback during the day long seminar, I believe there is a lot of interest in harnesses the power of Social Media to drive customer engagement and revenue, however there is no doubt a lack of knowledge on how to proceed. SaaS-IT has some great programs that can help companies in Europe move forward with a program for growth.
