Based on the feedback from our annual “Mountains & Metrics Conference,” we were able to identify the top 5 challenges for eCommerce and digital marketing directors.
With no surprise, the most common challenge was trying to stay up to date on digital marketing trends in an ever-evolving industry — the rapid rate of new technologies and new platforms really speaks to the necessity of focusing on the right sources of information so as to keep up with trends and ultimately maximize your return on investment (ROI).
Whether you are the CEO of a company or just getting started, eCommerce podcasts are a fantastic way to keep up with trends and learn new things from industry leaders — and the best part?: You can listen to them while driving to work, doing the dishes at home, or working out at the gym.
We’ve put together a list of our top eCommerce podcasts to help you overcome the challenges of the industry:
