Smartphone Traffic to Ecommerce Sites Up 103% Since 2011 [INFOGRAPHIC] | The Freelancer's Magazine | Scoop.it
Infographic from Monetate about the major increase in traffic from smartphones to ecommerce websites in the past year.

 

How important is mobile optimization to your ecommerce website? If going mobile isn't already one of your priorities this year, you might want to clear some space in your strategy for it. The following infographic, brought to us by the folks over at digital marketing technology company Monetate, highlights the impressive growth in traffic (103%!) from smartphones to leading ecommerce websites over the past year.

Furthermore, the graphic analyzes the various shopping activities of smartphone users as well as the mobile marketing tactics currently being used by marketers, with website mobile optimization topping the list at 46%, followed closely by mobile apps (45%), and trailed by mobile email optimization at 35%. Check it out!
