My new column for +Sprout Social: The ever-shortening attention span of consumers, coupled with increasing competition, has made marketing more challenging than ever for companies doing business online. In Q1 2015, 77.5% of retail website shoppers abandoned their cart. It’s even more dire in travel, where over 82% of carts are abandoned. Across all sectors, the cart abandonment rate the first quarter of this year was 75.6%. What a waste! 

You invested in SEO, social media marketing, paid social ads, banners and other channels to get people to your website in the first place. You were doing alright on targeting in the first place and getting high intent shoppers to actually place items in the cart. Are you just going to let them walk away?

Not a chance.
