If your company is selling products via an e-commerce platform, you are also gathering data with each transaction that can lead to valuable insights about your business. These are insights that you can leverage to make even more money. This is the realm of e-commerce performance analytics, and it is a MindEcology specialty.
If your e-commerce company is like most others, you are likely unaware that this data collection is taking place, and you may have even less of an understanding of how to make it work for you.
This means you are missing out on significant opportunities to increase the amount of business you are doing with current and new customers alike, both per-transaction and over the course of the lifetime of the customer relationship.
Your e-commerce platform is the digital storefront for your business – and so much more. That is because it is also a secret gold mine of hundreds of data nuggets that, when unearthed, can reveal answers to a number of important marketing questions, such as:
- Which customer segments do the most business with you, and at what times of the day or year are they most likely to purchase?
- Which customer segments are under-performing, but represent potential for a bigger spend?
- Which products need to be offered at greater frequency, upgraded, re-priced or discontinued?
- What types of products are your customers searching for that you are not offering?
When you’ve been running an e-commerce business for years, the prospect of figuring out how to harness and interpret mountains of data may seem too overwhelming to consider.
That’s where MindEcology comes in. Our data scientists have worked with small companies and Fortune 500 businesses alike, so we’re comfortable with just about any-sized project and have pricing structures to meet your needs.
