The Era of Ecommerce

Download Now

It’s the era of ecommerce. Retailers like Amazon, Target, and Walmart are much more than online shopping destinations. They are now powerful advertising platforms, and important stops in the consumer journey.

Discover key insights into the world of ecommerce and how to adapt your strategies to maximize performance across the ecommerce landscape.

New, Exclusive Research

96% of consumers have visited Amazon within the last year, but have 78% also visited the Walmart website to research or purchase.

85% of browsing and purchasing activity occurs with non-Amazon retailers, but only 25% of US brands say they have an advertising strategy for retailers beyond Amazon.

Search engines still play a critical role. Twenty percent of consumers go to Amazon first when they know what they are looking for, but a whopping 46% of consumers begin with Google. When a consumer does not know what they are looking for, 62% of ecommerce purchase journeys start with a search engine.

It’s with this backdrop that we are excited to release The Era of Ecommerce: Capitalizing on the New Customer Journey, a new Catalyst-ClickZ whitepaper. Read the new publication to gain powerful insights into maximizing visibility and sales across the entire ecommerce ecosystem.

The whitepaper is based on a survey of 750+ North America-based consumers, a survey of 600+ business to consumer marketers across multiple sectors, and in-depth interviews with senior marketers who are engaged in ecommerce advertising.
