“Watch this short video: https://youtu.be/JSkTq9PTej4. Then, look at your highest costs or pain points. Then, look at the population you are touching. Then, look at how specific stakeholder groups you’re already involved with might benefit from being exposed (meaningfully) to that audience. Then, craft a brilliant program that benefits everyone involved…especially the audience (through every channel…including print…print is not dead). You should be able to transform costs and pain points into innovations and profits if you approach this formula mindfully! This is my superhero power and what got me to where I am today. It works, and everyone wins!”

Ch 7 Ecommerce Quotes from top ecommerce experts. Last chapter, 3rd to last quote in the book…best for last? Actually, I liked Sam Hurley’s and Paul Johnston’s comments too!
“As we head into 2018, my best tip (by far) is to utilize AI (Artificial Intelligence).
The innovative tech of today allows ecommerce businesses to scale by automating and enhancing an array of operations and initiatives to a degree otherwise impossible.
5 key applications for AI in Ecommerce:
· Predictive Marketing
· Hyper-Personalization (at scale)
· Search Results on steroids
· Dynamic Pricing (including inventory automation)
· Chatbots / Virtual Assistance
The customer journey is changing. Consumers want everything, and they want it immediately. Experience matters more than anything else — and the technology at our fingertips enables such amazing experiences, only desired in today’s fast-paced world.
AI is finding its way into every aspect of our professional (and personal!) life — SEO, content creation, Social Media, ads and customer service — to mention only a few areas.
Consumers are constantly exposed to the best of the best, and their tolerance for anything less is diminishing.
“81% of consumers want brands to get to know them and understand when to approach them (and when not to).”
Without AI and machine learning, this is a colossal challenge.
Failure to stay on top of trends places ecomm brands at risk of falling majorly behind in the fierce battle for attention.”

“Stay focused, and do regular updates. Take the time to cover the
who, what, where, when and why for each product you are promoting.
Make sure the description contains the keywords you want to rank well
for and add supporting content. Make sure you add alt text for each
image and video. If you are lacking video of your product, then make a
video and add it. It’s amazing how quickly this tip will help your website
stand out above the competitors. Once this is done, rinse and repeat.
Make sure you are updating the content regularly. Add more content or
additional details. You do not need to have a perfect page when you go
live, but you do need to constantly update and reﬁne the page to give
your website a ‘heartbeat’ and a reason to be re-indexed. And above all
else, stay positive and keep moving forward towards your goals.”
