Customer experience: The secret to online sales success

The growth of online sales has only been accelerated by COVID-19. Nearly 85% of Canadian consumers now buy on the Internet, and almost 60% of B2B buying decisions take place online before a salesperson is contacted.

With so many players vying for people’s limited attention and budgets, optimizing your customers’ web experience should be a top priority. Are you confident that your website is effective at acquiring new customers? Is it doing everything required to generate leads and turn visitors into clients?

In our free live webinar, BDC Advisory Services experts will present a step-by-step approach for optimizing your website to attract and convert customers. They will be joined by BDC Chief Economist Pierre Cléroux, who will also present data on the top problems faced by entrepreneurs in e-commerce and on the web.

You’ll discover:

  • Results from our latest study on e-commerce and online sales after the pandemic
  • How to attract and convert more customers online
  • How to customize your website to your clients' needs

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with our experts

Who should watch:

  • Canadian business owners who want to use the web to attract customers.
  • B2B and B2C businesses that want to get more leads and sales.
  • Entrepreneurs who want to drive online traffic and turn website visitors into paying customers.
