Top Tips for Reducing Basket Abandonment
How to Improve your Checkout

How to Improve your Checkout

One of the most frustrating things for an online retailer to see when they look over their checkout activity is an abandoned order – the phrase “close, but no cigar” comes to mind. This actually happens on average a whopping 68%* of the time where customers will fill their virtual basket full of your goods, and for some reason decide to bail before completing their purchase. If you think about the potential amount of money you could be making if these customers were to go ahead with their purchase, it brings into reality the pressing need to reduce the amount of basket abandonments.

Here at Pople we have been working with some of our e-commerce clients to help improve their checkouts to encourage customers to complete their purchases so that they can tap into the lucrative market of the 68% that are basket abandoners! Check out our top tips to help you improve your own checkout.

A Beginner's Guide to the Basics of Facebook

A Beginner's Guide to the Basics of Facebook

Everyone is talking about it, everyone is using it but you find Facebook daunting and guess what? You're not alone! Maybe you're new to Facebook or maybe you're completely technically unsavvy but feel you're losing out socially. Even though the site was originally created for college students, the average user is now 41 years old and 65% of all Facebookers are over 35.* The problem that exists for some 40/50/60 somethings is that the younger generations have grown up with the words 'hashtag', 'share' and 'post' as part of their everyday language but those who have joined later in life may find it all too foreign. Of course, the majority of older users are more than capable to use all that Facebook has to offer but this is a beginner's guide for any user who is having doubts.
