Are you seeing a rise in activity from mobile devices?

Commerce Vision customers are witnessing steady growth in eCommerce activity from mobile devices, with some - especially B2C businesses - now attributing around 50% of their total clicks to mobile users.  This trend is playing out all across the industry with Australia Post reporting that in 2017, 1 in 5 online sales were made from a mobile...

5 security tips, and why you should care about them

It seems like everyone and their dog is willing to raise a big scary security flag and waive it around in the interests of being seen as an expert. Now, don’t get me wrong, security is important (and a big part of the decisions we make here at Commerce Vision), but that whole waving a red flag at a bull thing seems a bit outdated and frankly… not very helpful.

 

So here’s some (hopefully) helpful

It's data but is it information?

 

It’s no secret I have a love of data.

 

Data driven design and feedback-based iterative changes… these are a few of my favourite things (don’t worry I’m not going to start singing The Sound of Music).

 

It’s one thing to tell you this is how (I think) you can get the most bang for buck when making changes to your site, but it’s another to show you how. So rather than talking about concepts, I...

Everyone gets a layout with Layout Creator

 

“For time and the world do not stand still. Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or the present are certain to miss the future.” – John F Kennedy

 

I’ve been thinking a lot about change recently. About the ever shrinking gap between B2B and B2C. About what that means for us at CV, and you as CV customers. 

 

A long, long time ago in a galaxy not so far away (see what I...

Why does metadata filtering matter? Pt 2

Well hey there. Welcome back!

 

As you may remember, last week we talked about metadata filtering and categories. I gave you some pretty heavy high-level information, but not a lot of immediately actionable points. But I also promised not to leave you in the lurch… so here we are!

 

Today’s post is all about turning information into action.

As much as I want to dive right in,...

Why does metadata filtering matter? Pt 1

 

Imagine this: you need to do your weekly grocery shop and you’ve found a great new supermarket (let’s call it Bob’s Market), which has some of your favourite products at good prices. As a bonus they’re right around the corner! So you head down to Bob’s, grab your trolley and start travelling the aisles with your list. That’s when things get confusing.

 

In the same aisle as pasta, you find...

A picture says a thousand words, but does it say the RIGHT words?

Imagery is an incredibly important part of your website. Some would argue it’s the most important. And as with all important things in business, many areas of your organisation will have a vested interest; not just in what your images say, but how they say it.

 

  • Your graphic designers treat these images as art.
  • Your IT team want to ensure the files aren’t using more resources than necessary.
  • ...

Googling is not just for Google, Pt 2

Welcome back to the wide world of website search. It may not be quite as much fun as other parts of the internet (like cat videos) but hopefully you’ll still get something out of it.

 

Before I dive into today’s post I wanted to give you a really quick recap on part one of this post. To break it right down we covered off on these concepts:

 

  1. Search should look how users expect search to look

Googling is not just for Google Pt 1

Just as Hoovering became another way to talk about vacuuming, and Kleenex became the thing I reach for every time I watch Toy Story 3, Googling has become another way to talk about searching. It’s that interest in forward movement and the constant change of the web that led me to today’s post.

 

One of the things I love about my job is getting asked questions I never would have thought of myself....
