Strategies for Increasing Your Average Order Value

Dec 15, 2014 by Vlad Zachary

Encouraging your customers to buy more items and spend more money each time they shop is a proven method to boost revenue and profitability. Brick-and-mortar retailers have perfected the practice over the years, based on the marketing concept of the ‘halo effect’. The halo effect is the bias shown by customers towards certain products because of a favorable experience with other products made by the same brand, or sold in the same store, where the favorite item was originally purchased.

At the same time the increased complexity in eCommerce operations leads to the need for precise planning. Last year the shopping season – between Thanksgiving and Christmas had the fewest number of days – 27. This helped highlight the convenience of the online shopping and is one of the reasons for the record 2013. This year consumers and merchants have one more day for shopping.
