Better World Shopping Guide #6:Every Dollar Makes a Difference New Society Publishers. Sixth Edition Ellis Jones
Online shopping continues to grow at an astounding rate. In 2012 more than $1 trillion were spent in online retailers alone. The nature of shopping is drastically changing - but with so little information on how best to interact with online customers, how are businesses to succeed? With Click.ology, Internet psychologist Graham Jones has filled that gap. Through years of research into Internet psychology and online consumer habits, Jones has written the first how-to of its kind for online businesses. With his C.L.I.C.K. system, businesses will learn the crucial ways in which online shopping differs from traditional brick-and-mortar salesmanship and how to tweak their websites to avoid the dreaded ´´abandoned shopping cart´´. Jones tackles tricky psychological subjects such as priming customers for a certain price point and the social aspect of online shopping in a way that makes his strategies easy to implement. In addition to these essential tips, Jones investigates the fast-paced future of ecommerce and what businesses can do to stay ahead of the game. In an online world where customers make their choices in a matter of seconds, Click.ology distills the essentials every company in the online economy needs to know in order to turn clicks into dollars. 1.
