I always used to shop on the high street when I was younger then when I got older I realised I had less time and couldn't afford to spend hours trying on clothes, waiting in endless ques to pay for them item. And if you are anything like me I would go into the same shop 2 or 3 times after reviewing what else was on the high street. With online shopping it allows you to do all your research in the comfort of your own home and you can also do price comparison.

How are brands going to convert the 90% into interacting on these levels? Is money well spent on growing social media and mobile, or better spent on improving website content, architecture, and logistics to keep customers coming back to a functional, efficient and fun shopping experience.
James Carson (Mon Jun 25 10:28:35 BST 2012): Hi Krissy - I'm the Digital Marketing Manager here at Grazia. It’s probably better to go for both rather than making a decision to do one or the other. Website content, architecture etc are the building blocks of online marketing, social media can help spread that message. Mobile is only going to get bigger, and promotional marketing on the go is too, so expect that 90% to drop like a stone. I guess start with things like content, architecture and logistics. Once that's set, get onto promotion through social and mobile.
