Content and ecommerce?


I'm currently working on a new content framework of an ecommerce site and
can show how the content fits the needs for various user journies. I also
have some stats that show content usage but the are unconclusive.

importance of well constructed content as part of the selling process. The
focus is mainly on editoral style content with guides.
