Top 3 Ways to Improve eCommerce (CX) Customer Experience:

Create high-quality Content for Customers
Provide high-grade content, expect high-grade results!
This may be a no-brainer but cannot be stressed enough.
Content is #1 for online customers.
If your content is good, you may quickly notice others starting to copy what you have entered and using for their own.
We like to focus mainly on high-quality images and videos because often people do not like to read descriptions and bullet points.
If your images are eye-catching and educational enough, you can expect the customer to scroll down a bit and read about your product details.
There are many vendors that do not understand this concept. Media and marketing copy must be high-quality, just as it expected for a physical product in a retail store.
Create a Best-in-Class Brand Experience
Just like you find in your favorite brick and mortar store, it is important to create a best-in-class customer experience whenever they are visiting your online brand.
For brick and mortar this is everything from lighting, product displays, end-cap placement, to the actual temperature of the store (e.g. warm, cool, neutral).
For eCommerce stores this may mean your website, customer reviews, multiple images, online ads, and product education campaign.
Do not leave your customers “guessing”.
Merchandisers agree: customers should be able to distinguish between value brands (e.g. Dollar Store) versus premium options.
