How Important is Web Design for E-Commerce?

When it comes to building a successful e-commerce business, few things are quite so important as a great, modern website.

The website is essentially the shopfront of your business, demonstrating to customers and visitors your value as a service and store.

It communicates your businesses competency, quality, how up-to-date and current you are. Without a quality website showing the world how useful, trendy and outstanding your business is, it’s impossible to get ahead of all the other e-commerce businesses competing in the marketplace.

Forget VR, Augmented Reality is the Next Big Thing

We’ve all heard about virtual reality, but augmented reality is where the hype and money are at, here’s why that is.

Older Augmented Reality

At the moment, augmented reality centres on applications for smartphones, allowing people to use the camera combined with AR software to try on clothes or glasses while buying online, or search for Pokémon. It’s been something of a clunky gimmick, but as tracking and biometric software improve, so too does AR.

The more accurate and powerful the software, the greater the possibilities for AR. Very soon, it’s going to stop being a gimmick, and according to Apple, will influence our lives just as much as the development of the smartphone.

Apple have been prioritising AR for years now, introducing various features into different iterations of the iPhone, and developing new software. Fortunately for them, it’s beginning to catch on, especially in retail, for both online and real-life shopping.

Imagine being able to accurately try something on before you buy it? How about a virtual shopping assistant, allowing you to identify items and direct you around the store to different products? The applications really are endless, and could hugely impact the ways in which we live our lives.

Why’s this coming to your attention now? Put it down to massive developments, launches and investment from the likes of Apple, Facebook, Snapchat and Google.

While VR is going to remain in the realm of the specialised gamer for a long while to come, the applications and uses for straightforward, functional AR are going to be infinitely more widespread. This potential has led to a valuation of the AR industry ranging between $32 and $162 billion, making it very much something worth paying attention to.

Why the new EU GDPR Regulations are Good News for Both Businesses and Consumers

Whether as a business or a consumer, chances are you’ve had to deal with the past few weeks bombardment of emails and messages all to the tune of “Data law changes” or “Updates to our privacy policy”. These are the new GDPR regulations coming into force and making businesses scramble to maintain their legality.

With fines of €20 million or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is higher, on the table, these new rules are no small thing. Those fines could mean going into admin for a smaller business or hundreds of millions in fines for a multinational.

You might sniff and mutter something about Brexit, but beyond the faff of affirming your membership to a favourite mailing list, or the potential cost of implementing regulation-compliant procedures for your business, this is actually a very positive move for web users of all kinds.
