Some very interesting learnings from Gala Premiilor eCommerce 2010. (live blogging)

  • Bogdan Manole (legal)
    • register at osim the url/brand
    • most of the legal stuff are copy paste find replace
    • better use unique brand names than seo optimised
    • if you are a distributor, you should state your relationship with the rest of the brands
    • if you have a price on a site, that is a ferm selling offer. if we have a client willing to buy, we have a contract
    • for “ramburs” you can select clients via a clause “if you did not paid first time, next time you pay in advance”
    • privacy policy is a public declaration on how personal data are collected and stored (we are bind by law)
    • who r u? what personal data do you collect? why i collect personal data? how do i use them?what other third parties do have access,
    • most operators did not fully comply with the law
    • put an order without making an account (I HATE making accounts)
    • deleting data of old users if not comming back after 1 year (eventually you send en email warning before)
    • ochim.eu – for protecting the brands in EU
    • brand protection begins when the deposit is posted.
    • CNP  – better NOT to collect it (legally is a mess)
  • Iustin Priescu (security)
    • outpost24, sweden
    • perimetral scanning
    • at 22 scanned eshops, 2035 vulnerabilities known found
    • iso 27001 – information security certification
    • 5.6 out of 10
  • irsop
    • PROBLEM1. attention problem – too many “distractors” – things that are not essentials are given too much importance
    • PROBLEM 2. logic of the buyer differs from the seller (this is the most important)
    • PROBLEM 3.  subconscious plays a huge role
    • PROBLEM 4. semantic. clients don’t understand some words from sites. acronyms, neologism, polismenia, scientific terms, used too much
    • PROBLEM 5 – complexity. is a disaster.
    • PROBLEM 6 – cognitive simulation – will it make human tick. banks use toooooo much text on their sites
    • metrics: electronics (time on site, pageviews, bounce rate), subjectives (ask people if they like it, did they found what they wanted, etc), fiziological (eye tracking)
    • eyetracking – where the human looks, how long, where it looks next. several eyetracking => heatmaps
    • reasearch can boost the sales
  • next Brian Einsenberg
    • your website sucks!
    • top conversion rate is 41% schwan, proflower 26,5%, vitacost 24% (never settle with low, settle at least 10%
    • #1 UVP – unique value proposition, UCP unique campaign proposition:

      • humanistic care about reviews,
      • methodical search by genre,
      • competitive search by actor, titles
    • on amazon there are 150-200 tests running every givin time
    • use voice of the consumer
    • most used application on android and iphone is a barcode scanner. you scan in the store and you get via the application reviews and stuff

    • for 5 dollars more you’ll get this tomorrow. for an extra 10 you’ll get it today
    • the champions spend money on testing and usability studies,
    • spend your money on improving conversion not on building more traffic. the word of mouth will do the rest
    • focus on continuous improvement
