Market Observations – Online retailers must up their ‘mobile’


As our E-com team is get busier in the approach to the Christmas retail boom, ramp up for the Xmas boom, we have seen a huge increase in demand for mobile specialists – Designers, Developers and Product Managers.

Why? Well here are some facts:

Digital savvy retailer John Lewis sold 40% of their stock online last Christmas. Up by 40% from 2011! A massive 40 per cent of those online sales were made using mobile devices – with huge expected increases this year.

This year, mobile e-commerce (mcommcerce) will account for 15% of all online sales, increasing to 27% by 2017.

Ecommerce is growing nicely – however mcommerce is exploding!

It’s no longer adequate to have a mobile web site (a web site that fits on mobile screens) for shopping. It’s imperative for all e-tailers to have highly functional and user friendly downloadable native apps.

Hope you have had a fantastic month, please contact us on
