The typical cliché: darkened back rooms, the only source of lights are the LED monitors, humming computers, a kettle and 5 minute tureen food at the ready, which is washed down by energy drinks. The marketing and e-commerce branches should say goodbye to these clichés as quickly as possible.

E-Commerce is based on trust…still

Graphic: Lars Plougmann

Who’d have thought? According to a study from bevh, trust still plays a central role in the selection of a webshop. Additionally, customers want to know when their package will arrive.
