wonder that a slew of organizations are feeling a hangover effect in 2010. Many firms are beginning to realize
that all their time and money spent devising and implementing such an approach has not only failed to
produce measurable results, but also damaged their own brand equity in the process.

Shoppers are looking for discounts this holiday season, and many will abandon a shopping cart in a
heartbeat if they feel they're not getting the deal they expected when the checkout process is under way. There

mail strategist for Red Door Interactive, an online marketing and Web development agency. “People come in
every morning and have 20 e-mails that they signed up for.”

Paying attention to shopping cart abandonment can be depressing -- learning that you are being constantly rejected by a huge percentage of customers doesn't feel good -- but it also represents an opportunity. These shoppers, because they are one step away from giving you money, are often the potential customers who are the easiest to convert into real ones. "For any site that does e-commerce, this is the first thing you should look at," says Reid Carr, the CEO of Red Door Interactive, a San Diego Web consultancy. Here are a few ways to turn abandoned shopping carts into sales.

Terms, Shmerms! Why Business Can't Afford to Get Distracted by Facebook's Usage Policies
By Crosby Noricks
There's been a lot of brouhaha of late about Facebook's ill-fated attempt to change its terms of service to maintain licensing rights of terminated accounts—and understandably so. The issue of customer data ownership is an important one.
However, many businesses with an active presence on the social site are now fearful of getting caught up in any ensuing consumer backlash, and they are wondering what to do—keep our Facebook pages or move on to someplace safer?
During the presidential race 34 million people visited Web comedy sites, a 22% jump from 2007, says Nielsen Online. But of course it was easy to lure an audience to parody videos like "McCain's Roommates," "I Got a Crush on Obama" and "Let's Bomb Iran."

Survivors will have to figure out how to monetize their content by embedding ads in their videos and by hiding file-sharing code so that fans can watch it only on the home site.

Red Door recently spent two months retooling the Web site for Rancho Bernardo’s Garden Fresh Restaurant Corp. — which operates 105 eateries under the Souplantation and Sweet Tomatoes names in the West, South and East — optimizing the data for mobile phones. The new portion went live in mid-June.
