Ecommerce Marketing Strategy: What Works and What’s Just Annoying?

Ecommerce Marketing StrategyImagine walking through a department store knowing exactly what you want to buy, but at every turn something gets in the way.

You’re required to give your address to go through the front door. You round a corner and suddenly a store employee wants to chat about an in-store promotion. You almost get to the golf shirt you want, but a large advertisement for pants gets in the way. When you finally grab the shirt, the cashier tries to upsell you (and you get the feeling the employee’s been watching you).
