As entrepreneurs, it can be difficult to view different elements of your business from the perspective of an actual customer. Site design is often a perfect example of this. Things that look pleasing to us may not have the same effect on our customers. As a result, it’s imperative that we look to the leaders in our industry for inspiration and best practices when it comes to designing online stores.
