There’s a dirty little secret in the world of B2B eCommerce, and no one talks about it. From time to time, traffic slows, sales fall flat, and you hit a plateau that’s hard to break. You think you’re alone, but you are not. It’s not the time to panic, but it is time to take quick action. OroCommerce is ready to shine the light on the problem. We’ve put together a guide to help you identify the issues causing your plateau, troubleshoot the problem, and provide actionable advice to help you get traffic and sales growing again.
What Causes Traffic and Sales Plateaus?
In order to figure out the cause of your plateau, you must have insight into your customer behavior and purchasing habits. Do you know how visitors arrive, how they move about the site and their exit points? If not, you should.
The performance of the site must be part of the assessment as well. These days, sites must be fully responsive for the mobile environment, load quickly, be secure, and provide completely original content. And that’s just the start. Something as seemingly insignificant as a slow load time can have a significant impact on the bottom line. If Amazon figures every 1 millisecond in latency costs them 1% in sales, what is the impact of your site’s performance on your bottom line?
In addition, sitewide and on-page search engine optimization and pay per click campaigns must be approached strategically to generate quality traffic with a high likelihood of conversion.
The causes of traffic and sales plateaus are many. Fortunately, most are easy to correct when you know what to look for and what actions to take.
