Though the market has grown rapidly, average online retail conversion rates have fallen.
The fact that, for every $92 spent acquiring customers, just $1 is spent converting them has a lot to do with this.
Today sees the release of Econsultancy's fourth annual Conversion Rate Optimization Report, which looks at the tools, strategies and processes employed for improving conversion rates.
The report, produced in association with RedEye, is based on a survey of 900 client-side and agency digital marketers, carried out in July and August 2012.
