E-Commerce Evolved Book Review

E-Commerce Evolved Book Review

by Wes Grasty November 18, 2018

The official publish date of this book is October of 2016, but somehow I didn't stumble upon it until this year.  I wish I had found it in 2016 because some of the tactics in this book have helped my clients increase their conversion rates and average order values by a substantial amount - way worth the $18 price tag for this book.

Before you read on please note: Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I recommend the book and app below because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to purchase. Please do not spend any money on these unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.

From front to back, it's a wealth of information that takes a slightly different approach to e-commerce, but at the same time - not too uncommon.  One of the concepts that I didn't think would work in ecommerce is a dedicated product landing page.  You've probably seen these in the non-ecommerce world - a stripped down webpage with no navigation or anything with the only goal of selling one service to you.  The author, Tanner Larsson, claims he has tested this over and over with results better than a standard product page.  I was still skeptical, so I tried it for one of my client's Shopify site and was pleasantly surprised with the results.  We were able to increase the conversion rate from 2% to 3%.  Not bad!

Note: we also used an app for this called Funnel Buildr that made it super easy to do (and test).  

This is just one of many concepts in this 300+ page book.  I don't want to ruin it and give any more details, but that one landing page concept alone paid for itself many times over and there are lots more!

If you're an ecommerce owner (or work in any capacity for an ecommerce business), this book is a must! 

After you read it, please come back to this blog and let me know what you thought.
