At Econsultancy we’ve always tried to share the knowledge of our community, which is far greater than our own collective brain.
We used to do this primarily through a weekly interview with an in-house e-commerce professional, where we’d try to ask the kinds of questions that would lead to some revealing answers. We’ve always greatly preferred actionable insight, rather than exclusive company news.
A few years ago we published the first post on this blog and shortly thereafter started to invite industry experts to contribute articles. The Econsultancy brand is heavily aligned to ‘learning’, and what better way to learn that to share first-hand insight from guest bloggers who are insanely knowledgeable in their field?
You'd think that after being caught red handed copying Google (or not), the engineers at Bing would come up with something original. But copying Google is just far too easy.

The market for tablet devices, which basically didn't exist at this time last year, is now a major focus for just about every large computer and mobile manufacturer.
Yet despite this, one company is reaping almost all of the rewards: Apple.
This is an introductory article for small to medium businesses who are either behind the digital sales and marketing curve, or who are dabbling with digital tactics for either branding or lead generation purposes.
The focus of this article is 'Digital Demand Generation' (DDG), a discipline that combines a custom combination of digital tactics for lead generation (traffic), and an implementation of a marketing automation tool to manage lead progression through the funnel towards a closed sale.
This discipline is now emerging as Revenue Performance Management (RPM) and was originally termed Marketing Automation. Regardless of title, progressive organisations can make significant strides forward with DDG by increasing their number of leads, number of sales qualified conversions and reduction of the sales cycle in terms of time and expense.
Using digital marketing tactics, marketing automation tools and the latest best practices can result in a tremendous revenue growth opportunity for SMEs, but be sure to consider the suitability of DDG for your business.
Yesterday's surprise announcement that AOL is buying The Huffington Post for $315m sent shockwaves through the blogosphere.
The deal is not only one of the biggest in the consumer internet space in the past several years, it's one of the biggest online publishing acquisitions ever involving a 'blog'.
In the age of Personal Branding, or Micro-Celebrity, quickly giving visitors to your profiles an all important nugget about who you are is very important.
Okay, I admit it, coming from a tagline professional like me, that headline might sound just a tad self-serving, and maybe it is, but there's more than a shred of truth in the statement too.
To a lot of people Information Architecture (IA) is some kind of remote construct with no apparent significance.
However, IA permeates every aspect of our lives, and for e-commerce sites, good information architecture is paramount to success.
Yesterday, News Corp. made what many publishing executives hope will be
one of the most important announcements in the annals of digital
publishing: the launch of the much-anticipated iPad publication, The
But while subscribing to The Daily is probably accurately described as 'affordable' at 99 cents a week, or $39.99/year, producing the publication isn't. News Corp. has confirmed that its investment to date is already a whopping $30m, and that The Daily will have a weekly overhead of $500,000.
A new study by Econsultancy explores the opportunities and challenges in media and publishing using feedback from nearly 500 media company CEOs and senior executives.
Mobile applications have taken off in the past several years. Thanks in large part to the rise of the iPhone, millions upon millions of consumers treat their mobiles like computing devices. It's a trend that nobody expects to slow anytime soon.
But despite the rapid growth of mobile apps, when it comes to app sales, there's good news for everyone in the mobile ecosystem: the best is yet to come.
As consumers, techies and the media trade some of their infatuation with Google for the latest crop of super-hot web upstarts like Facebook, the world's most dominant search engine is finding that more and more people are pointing out its flaws.
The quality of Google's SERPs have increasingly come under question, with some complaining that Google isn't doing enough to weed out web spam and low-quality content that ranks well but doesn't offer consumers much value. I am one of those who have been highly critical of Google's capabilities in these areas.
