Well, it's been a long year at Econsultancy Towers, and it's time to look at the most popular posts of 2015 (by page views).
Of course, evergreen content is what we aim for, so a large proportion of these articles will hopefully be relevant well into 2016.
We hope you find them useful.
Everybody loves a bit of interaction with a website. Although scrolling experiences aren't for everyone, mouseover effects have been established for a long time.
As creative hover states feature in my design trends to watch out for in 2016 (for the creativity they afford an otherwise increasingly restrained front-end developer), I decided to roundup some of my favourite examples.
Of course, these are on desktop, where most ecommerce sales occur (for now).
'Omnichannel customer experience' and 'single customer view'; two terms that cause many a marketers' eyes to roll.
There's no doubt that these two concepts have been realised by a select few, bleeding edge brands, but they can be trotted out as best practice without much pragmatism.

Lots of publishers reveal their annual web design trends at the end of the year.
I thought I'd be different and conduct a meta-study, bringing you what I consider to be the most cogent predictions from across the web.
Hopefully that means this is the only trends post you'll need this year. So, put your feet up and read on, as we explore the larger trends, to the finer detail.
Walmart's popular app is set to include payment functionality (much like the Starbucks app).

There's a quote from Alibaba's Jack Ma: "Customers should be number one, employees number two, and then only your shareholders come at number three."
Many great companies have understood this over the years, and Jack is simply one of the latest digital leaders to express this sentiment.
After reading Ma's quote (see more here), I read about the scandal of Sports Direct warehouses, where workers are effectively paid below The National Minimum Wage (due to staff searches lasting for 15 minutes at the end of each working day).
We so very rarely see quirky or 'marmite' video creative where brands are perceived to be taking a risk.
