– Which cannabinoids are most likely to grow as popular as CBD

Pivoting During a Pandemic: Aligning Ecommerce Marketing Functionality with Profitability

Thu, Jun 25, 2020 12:00 PM EDT | Register >

Over the past three months, ecommerce marketers have been faced with unprecedented challenges. While historically low CPMs may have led to lower CPAs, AOVs also have fallen, fewer companies are placing large trade orders and foot traffic, for the most part, has not been walking into showrooms. (In non-marketing-geek terms, that means it’s cheaper than ever to advertise online and capture new visitors to your site, but your conversion rates are falling.) How do companies navigate this new landscape with an eye toward profitability? What marketing levers can be turned off and on, and what items need to fall by the wayside during this downturn? Learn how Ian Leslie, CMO of DTC home furnishings retailer Industry West, recommends re-prioritizing your marketing strategy.
