Create a Positive Online Shopping Experience

Poor website performance kills business.  Online shopping is convenient for shoppers and a potential goldmine for small business—- if it works properly.  A survey from CWCS Managed Hosting revealed 68% of online shopping carts are abandoned prior to checkout because—–

*Website crashed                         24%

*Forced to register                       26%

*Confusing navigation                 25%

*Unsuitable delivery                     16%

More than one-half (57%) of online shoppers will leave a webpage if it takes more than three seconds to load.

*Too much to deal with when they return                  40%

*No one else can do the job                                            35%

*Want to show total dedication                                     28%

*Don’t want to look replaceable                                    22%
