Tactics for Enhancing Website Search and Navigation

As digital commerce continues to evolve, standards for user experience are on the rise. Why? Technology that creates personalized, seamless customer experiences (CX) across channels keeps raising the bar.

In fact, in a survey of more than 8,000 B2C and B2B buyers around the world, 73% said just one really good experience with a company raises their expectations of other companies. That’s great news for companies who are already providing extraordinary experiences, but for the many that aren’t, this poses a new set of challenges.
