E-commerce for the Emerging Retailer

Magento will also discuss how to prepare for the next big shifts in online commerce. Why are new online retailers growing so quickly and how can established players effectively compete? Are yesterday's marketing channels becoming tomorrow's platforms? Topics include:

  • Mobile: Commerce on mobile devices is growing at an unprecedented rate. How should online retailers respond?
  • Social & Local: Why did Omniture® recently partner with Facebook? How are location-aware mobile apps like Foursquare & Gowalla influencing customers to discover products?
  • Measurement: Do online retailers need to embrace new Key Performance Indicators to measure their business, or will the same fundamentals apply?
  • Products & Platforms: What sort of solutions should online retailers look for in this time of change?
