Online sales rise 16% in July 2009
Online sales increased 16% in July despite the
recession, according to figures released in the latest IMRG Capgemini
e-Retail Sales Index.
Overall online sales were 16.8% higher in July than the same month last year, compared to a 3.3% in high street shops.
The data highlights the importance to all small firms of having a fully functioning website that can drive sales.
"Online has proved pretty resilient to the recession, when one considers the wider retail market," said Mike Petevinos from Capgemini.
Right from the outset of the project the team at XTmotion took the time and effort to get to know us, our business, clients and our competitors as well as understanding our requirements. This meant that as each stage of the project was released to us for testing there was very little to change each time. The result was a market leading solution, including a complex bespoke multi-event booking system. The site has been received well by existing clients as well as attracting new clients to our business. The website solution built for us by XTmotion has given us a strong basis on which to market our existing business, and we look forward to working with them again as the business grows.
XTmotion offered a personal and professional service in developing a website according to our specifications, whilst adding their own innovative ideas and suggestions.
XTmotion are personable, efficient and dedicated to delivering on their promises. I would highly recommend this company and I would not hesitate to use for any future development within our company.
