In order to meet customer demands, companies have adapted their strategies to fit current trends. Market Quotient has suggested top five trends that will carry e-commerce through 2015 and will continue into the New Year.

1. Customer is God

Internet has become the competition ground for any one. In this scenario, companies will have to impress a customer in order to make them stay, because in reality, the customer has all the power and they know it. Companies need to listen to their customers’ need and deliver, or else they might lose customer loyalty.

MQ suggests few of the strategies that companies can use to improve the customer experience, which include:

  • Create a return experience that is as good as the purchasing experience
  • To create relationship with customers that goes beyond purchases
  • More loyalty programs and benefits, to ensure customers continue shopping
  • Online purchase and pick up in store option should be available

One of the fastest growing marketing trend is not just displaying the products nicely on a page, but developing a story to draw in the customer through written text and videos in online stores.
