Did you know that online retail sales are growing by 17 percent per year and are expected to hit $370 billion by 2017?
Social media is playing its part, too – Facebook drives about 60 percent of all social referral traffic to retail websites, and half of all social media-driven purchasing happens within one week of sharing, tweeting, liking or favouring a product.
Mobile is on track to account for 26 percent of U.S. retail e-commerce sales by 2017, and 44 percent of all online shoppers begin the buying process by using a search engine. This infographic from AmeriCommerce takes a closer look at data-driven e-commerce.
