The Perfect Basket Abandonment Email

We recently shared an infographic that provided evidence that the faster a sales representative returns a call to a prospective client via the web, the higher conversion rate. Not surprisingly, along the same line of logic… the folks at SaleCycle have found that the faster you get a shopping cart abandonment email sent, the higher the conversion rate!
